Abstract

This paper provides an insight on the findings of a survey undertaken on the profile of the quantity surveying practice in Malaysia. The framework of the survey is to examine current scenario and identify perceptions on future directions of quantity surveying practice in Malaysia. This was based on a survey of quantity surveying firms using semi-structured self-administered postal questionnaires. The results indicated that although current scenario is dominated by traditional practices, there is evidence that the practices have diversified from the traditional boundaries. Future directions of quantity surveying practice will be influenced by the country’s industrialization drive, structural transformation of the economy, future technology breakthroughs, the significance and importance of ICT in future construction activities and increased globalization of construction markets. The paper provides data that can be used for comparative purposes among international quantity surveying practices and as the basis to aspire to future challenges and needs.
