Overview

Achieving value in construction is now emerging as the main challenge facing the construction team if they are to offer the best service for the client. No longer is the aim simply to keep costs under control.

This book from the RICS Foundation analyses how to provide best value by the effective application of leading edge techniques and processes throughout the entire life cycle of buildings, from the business case which underpins their initiation to the achievement of a satisfactory project out-turn.

This book is a successor to Quantity Surveying Techniques: New Directions, edited by Peter Brandon and published on behalf of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors by Blackwell. It will be of interest not only to surveyors and construction managers but also to final year undergraduates of construction degrees.

'[This book] will make a major contribution to the advancement of the methods by which construction professionals provide a service to their clients' - Professor Peter Brandon
