The construction industry has been undergoing rapid change in the last decade since the publication of the Latham and Egan reports, and quantity surveying professionals have been at the forefront of those challenges. Changing attitudes to procurement and partnering, and the evolving role of clients, have put the QS profession at the heart of delivering major construction projects.

Duncan Cartlidge assesses what has driven these changes, and what they mean for the profession and for the industry as a whole. He explains modern procurement methods, and assesses how much impact technology has had on construction management – and how much it might have in the future.

The first edition of this visionary book set out the future for Quantity Surveying – now that prediction has become reality, New Aspects of Quantity Surveying Practice is an even more indispensable guide to the opportunities and challenges facing the profession in the 21st Century.

Duncan Cartlidge FRICS is a procurement consultant and teaches at The Scott Sutherland School and is an online tutor for The College of Estate Management, Reading.
