Details :

In a building contract, the major role of quantity surveyors in cost management generally covers cost planning, value management, feasibility studies, lifecycle costing, cost benefit analysis, tendering, valuation and cost estimation. It has been observed that these cost management activities may have been carried out differently from the planning aspect, the legal aspect and the cost aspect in engineering projects. In attempting to look at the nature of the project, the contractual arrangement, the methodological approach of the estimate, the components of the contract sum, the cost modeling methods and the cost control methods, Dr. Lau is going to offer some empirical findings to share with those who are in particular working in this area.
