The sudden arrival of Building Information Modelling (BIM) as a key part of the building industry is redefining the roles and working practices of its stakeholders. Many clients, designers, contractors, quantity surveyors, and building managers are still finding their feet in an industry where BIM compliance can bring great rewards. This guide is designed to help quantity surveying practitioners and students understand what BIM means for them, and how they should prepare to work successfully on BIM compliant projects. The case studies show how firms at the forefront of this technology have integrated core quantity surveying responsibilities like cost estimating, tendering, and development appraisal into high profile BIM projects. In addition to this, the implications for project management, facilities management, contract administration and dispute resolution are also explored through case studies, making this a highly valuable guide for those in a range of construction project management roles. Featuring a chapter describing how the role of the quantity surveyor is likely to permanently shift as a result of this development, as well as descriptions of tools used, this covers both the organisational and practical aspects of a crucial topic.

Historically employed to estimate and measure the likelymaterial requirements for any building project, the role of themodern quantity surveyor is diverse, with a wide range of employersand geographical locations to match. Change continues to be afeature in quantity surveying practice, with the New Rules ofMeasurement, the RICS Black Book and Building Information Modelling(BIM) all adding to the already dynamic environment in which theQuantity Surveyor operates. This new edition of Practiceand Procedure for the Quantity Surveyor reflects that dynamicenvironment, addressing changing practices and procedures in theprofession, whilst focussing on the core skills which are essentialto success. The 13th edition of this classic text, originallywritten by three generations of the Willis family (all quantitysurveyors) continues to provide a thorough introduction to the workof the quantity surveyor in private practice, in public service andin contracting organisations.

In this fourth edition of New Aspects of Quantity Surveying Practice, renowned quantity surveying author Duncan Cartlidge reviews the history of the quantity surveyor, examines and reflects on the state of current practice with a concentration on new and innovative practice, and attempts to predict the future direction of quantity surveying practice in the UK and worldwide. The book champions the adaptability and flexibility of the quantity surveyor, whilst covering the hot topics which have emerged since the previous edition’s publication, including: the RICS ‘Futures’ publication; Building Information Modelling (BIM); mergers and acquisitions; a more informed and critical evaluation of the NRM; greater discussion of ethics to reflect on the renewed industry interest; and a new chapter on Dispute Resolution. As these issues create waves throughout the industry whilst it continues its global growth in emerging markets, such reflections on QS practice are now more important than ever. The book is essential reading for all Quantity Surveying students, teachers and professionals. It is particularly suited to undergraduate professional skills courses and non-cognate postgraduate students looking for an up to date understanding of the industry and the role.

Building information modelling (BIM) is a set of interacting policies, processes and technologies that generates a methodology to manage the essential building design and project data in digital format throughout the building's life cycle. BIM, makes explicit, the interdependency that exists between structure, architectural layout and mechanical, electrical and hydraulic services by technologically coupling project organizations together. Integrated Building Information Modelling is a handbook on BIM courses, standards and methods used in different regions (Including UK, Africa and Australia). 13 chapters outline essential information about integrated BIM practices such as the BIM in site layout plan, BIM in construction product management, building life cycle assessment, quantity surveying and BIM in hazardous gas monitoring projects while also presenting information about useful BIM tool and case studies. The book is a useful handbook for engineering management professionals and trainees involved in BIM practice.
