The second edition of Construction Quantity Surveying offers a practical guide to quantity surveying from a main contractor's perspective. This indispensable resource covers measurement methodology (including samples using NRM2 as a guide), highlights the complex aspects of a contractor's business, reviews the commercial and contractual management of a construction project and provides detailed and practical information on running a project from commencement through to completion.

Todays Quantity Surveyor (QS) plays an essential role in the management of construction projects, although the exact nature of the role depends on who employs the QS. The QS engaged by the client and the contractor's QS have different parts to play in any construction project, with the contractor's QS role extending beyond traditional measurement activities, to encompass day-to-day tasks of commercial building activities including estimating, contract administration, and construction planning, as well as cost and project management.

This updated and practical guide:
Focuses on the application, knowledge and training required of a modern Quantity Surveyor
Clearly shows how Quantity Surveying plays an essential central role within the overall management of construction projects
Covers measurement methodology, the key elements of the contractor's business and the commercial and contractual management of a construction project

The construction industry changes at fast pace meaning the quantity surveyor has a key role to play in the successful execution of construction projects by providing essential commercial input.

Construction Quantity Surveying meets this demand as an up-to-date practical guide that includes the information needed for a Quantity Surveyor to perform at the highest level. It clearly demonstrates that quantity surveying is not limited to quantifying trade works and shows it as an important aspect of commercial and project management of construction projects.
