5.1 Quantity Surveyor

a)
The prospective of totally new areas of services and work for quantity
surveyors could be by moving towards the real management of construction work
as a fully separate field of services from the idea of recommending the client on or
contributing in the project procurement. This would need the quantity surveyor to
be able to perform facilities currently inside the activities of construction
contractors and that potential included main contractors and trade sub-contractors.
This area of services tends to be rather foreign to quantity surveyors who tend not
to go deeper into the construction procedure than the unit price in the Bill of
Quantities.

Mainly, quantity surveyors usually not to join in the actual result making and
management of the many activities accomplished, well or poorly, repeatedly or
infrequently, by contractors. Possibly those activities which are performed poorly
and/or infrequently by contractors could be required as new market niches to be
provided by quantity surveyors who are skilled and educated in such activities
within the contractors side of the industry.

The prospective of quantity surveyors is providing the construction


arrangement and control services, labor and equipment cost planning, observing
and control reporting, the buying and expediting of materials in the supply chain
flows from suppliers, wholesalers and retailers to trade contractors, as well as the
more obvious.
