New Aspects of Quantity Surveying Practice

New Aspects of Quantity Surveying Practice 

Richard F. Fellows

Preference :

Quantity surveying remains a diverse profession with practitioners moving into new areas, some of which are outlined in Chapter 7. The Preface to the Second Edition of New Aspects of Quantity Practice referred to the increasing interest from both the profession and the construction industry in sustainability and green issues. During the past five years, since the previous edition, sustainability has risen to world prominence and the construction industry, worldwide, has been identified as number one in the league table of polluters and users of diminishing natural resources. It is unsurprising therefore that sustainability has risen to prominence in the industry with many undergraduate and postgraduate programs now including dedicated modules on sustainable development, and clients, professionals, developers, and contractors seeking to establish their green credentials.
