Webinar: Using Data to offer Cost Advice

Webinar: Using Data to offer Cost Advice
Gain useful insights into "Using Data to offer Cost Advice rather than Cost Estimating" as demonstrated by Mark Heath.

Quantity Surveyors’ bread and butter services are under threat from technological disruption. More and more property developers are using their own in-house benchmarks for early stage assessment. Equally, pre-tender estimates, who to approach for RFTs, and what to expect in the next 6 months are cost consulting revenue goldfields that QS firms are missing out on.

This webinar will demonstrate how effective harvesting of both pre and post contract cost information can assist the QS move beyond number crunching and compete with management consultants and in-house development managers to add value to the cost management game.
