Join our panel of Quantity Surveying Professionals as they engage in a wide-ranging conversation about what it takes to survive and thrive in the present-day QS profession.

Rapid technological changes have impacted the work of the QS, and our panellists will consider how these changes can best be utilised by both emerging Quantity Surveyors and those who are already established within the profession.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • Suggested data-related tools that QS Professionals can leverage in their work
  • The extent to which QS professionals should familiarise themselves with BIM
  • The current and predicted future needs of developers and clients
  • Competitive edge vs transparency of data and digital solutions with regard to the betterment of the profession
