Book Description

6 July 2012 0470659424 978-0470659427 1
The modern quantity surveyor (QS) plays a central role in the management of construction projects, although the exact nature of the role depends on who employs the QS. The Professional Quantity Surveyor engaged by the client and the Contractor′s Quantity Surveyor have different roles to play in any construction project, with the contractor′s QS role extending beyond measurement to the day–to–day running of building projects, estimating, contract administration and construction planning, as well as commercial, cost and project management. This book aims to provide readers with a practical guide into quantity surveying from a main contractor′s perspective. Readers will acquire an understanding of the skills and competencies required by the contractor’s quantity surveyor. Following a brief introduction, the book′s early chapters cover measurement methodology and the contractor′s business, with the rest of the chapters discussing commercial and contractual management of a construction project, including day–to–day running from commencement through to completion, in a highly practical way.

More About the Author

As a chartered quantity surveyor, Donald has extensive experienece of the construction industry involving contract administration, estimating and quantity surveying. His experience has provided golden opportunities to be involved with some exciting projects in both the United Kingdom and Australia. He comments "the experience gained from both the contractor and client's perspectives has provided me with an holistical view of the construction processes from design through to completion, which can only be achieved through effective commercial input." So much so, he decided to write two books on the subject. The first "Construction Quantity Surveying - A Practical Guide for the Contractor's QS" is written from a contractor's perspective dealing with building measurement, the contractor's business activities, project initiation and strategies for running and successfully completing a project. His second book "Cost Management of Construction Projects" addresses cost and commercial management from a client's perspective. This second book compliments Donald's holistical view, as it combines viewpoints from both the contractor and client's perspectives giving readers an insight into the full commercial activities of construction projects.
