Hong Kong CPD: Planning, Programming and Procurement
Its Impact on the Cost of Construction Projects

A joint event hosted by the AIQS - Hong Kong Division & HKIS(QSD)

This presentation will cover how the process of planning, programming and procurement will affect the cost of a construction project. Nowadays, it is common to see the quantity surveyor taking up the role of Project Manager. Mr Cotton will share his practical experience, together with cases, to show how the above factors will have impact on the cost. Not only it is necessary for a project manager to ensure the job to be completed on time and with quality, it is also crucial to build it within budget and offer value for money.
