Importance of Sustainability in Modern Day Quantity Surveying Processes and Procedures (2018)

The dissertation research is focused on sustainability practices in design and construction process. The fundamental aim of this dissertation is to assess the efforts that the Quantity Surveyors put in order to implement sustainability within their profession and how it will play a crucial role in construction industry. The research will help the quantity surveyors to improve sustainability in construction industry by recommending new strategies and tools. The construction industry plays an important role in global level for attaining sustainability. The economic, social and environmental aspects of sustainability should be considered while delivering projects in construction industry. With population growth, the demand for large-scale infrastructure/ building projects has been increasing. Also with earth’s dwindling resources and carbon emissions, it means quantity surveyors play a vital role in ensuring developments are sustainable, reusable and low energy. Sustainability has emerged as one of the most important considerations within the construction industry while tendering and constructing a project. Quantity Surveyors play an important role within the industry and have a professional obligation to consider sustainability. As part of any construction project, a quantity surveyor has to ensure that they promote sustainability considering all aspects. Construction, building technology and maintenance costs , estimating and budgeting , tendering, cost control and reporting, managing building operations, life cycle costs, understanding building components and functionality, procuring goods, services and leases, managing contracts and sub-contracts, facilities management etc. are core responsibilities for many quantity surveyors to ensure the sustainability of buildings.
