Do you think when you are doing well a quantity surveyor in HK or elsewhere in the English system region, then you can be a good QS working in China?

Do you know the real practice a quantity surveyor is doing for the clients in China and for the projects in China? When you think the market is vast in the Mainland, why you still hesitate to move? When you decide to move, what should be ready and what QS procedures and skills you have to know? Or you just think that a HKIS or RICS qualification means and applies to everything?

In this CPD, the speakers are going to share with you the difference as a QS practise and what method and tools that we use for daily procedure and process as a QS.

As a boss of a QS firm and the leading QS in the company, the speakers shall share the CPD in 2 parts: Jacob Lam on a macro and corporate view and Alex Cheng on a practical view, in order to satisfy your various tastes. Costing system and computerization in the QS process are to be highlighted in the event. The speakers like sharing with you and challenges from you in the CPD and wish you will come and enjoy an evening.
