This is a joint CPD event with the Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (AIQS).

The talk is about how the process of planning, programming and procurement will be affecting the cost in a construction project. Nowadays, it is common to see the quantity surveyor taking up the role of Project Manager. The speaker will share his practical experience together with cases coming across to show how the above factors will have impact on the cost. Not only it is necessary for a project manager to make the job to be completed on time and in quality, it is also crucial to build it within budget and value for money too.
