    TRADITIONAL ROLE OF A QS
  • 7. Professional Quantity Surveyor
    Broadly concerned with contracts and costs on construction projects. The methods employed, however, cover a range of activities which may include cost planning, value management, feasibility study, cost benefit analysis, lifecycle costing, tendering, valuation, change control, dispute resolution and cost estimation.
    Contractors Quantity Surveyor
    A contractor's QS is responsible for the performance of operations that mirror those of the owner's QS; i.e., the measurement and pricing of construction work, but specifically performed by the contractor as opposed to the construction work described and measured in the construction contract between the developer and the contractor.
    TYPES OF QS
  • 8. Costs have become more dynamic, changes are faster.
    Technology change, mechanization.
    From primary civil engineering to a mix of mechanical & electrical, plumbing, fire protection etc....
    Corresponding to change from single & double storey construction to multi-storey complexes.
    Energy costs and environmental requirements
    CHANGING ROLE OF A QS
  • 9. Energy Costs have also brought in change to the architectural design of buildings.
    We can no longer overlook the operating cost of the building as a whole.
    Our building designs should keep energy in all its forms and stages of utilisation.
    Speed of construction is now of assuming importance.
    With the gradual but continuous increase in labour costs it is essential that the design is such that the requirements of resources is kept to a minimum.
