The past decade has seen dramatic changes in the construction industry and the quantity surveying profession. The Latham and Egan reports and a client-led crusade for value for money is driving Quantity Surveyors to adopt these changes. In addition, the industry and the profession now stands on the threshold of the e-commerce revolution - one which has so far failed to penetrate the working practices of the majority of surveyors, particularly SMEs.
Duncan Cartlidge addresses the evolving market in which today's Quantity Surveyors work, examining the new construction culture, new procurement strategies, e-practice and the QS, changing markets, delivering added value, supply chain management and partnering.

Challenging, provocative prospectus for the Quantity Surveying industryFrom the Back Cover:
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.
