The demand for Chartered Commercial Surveyors has increased significantly, requiring the profession to evolve in response to current market conditions across the UK construction industry.

The 2014 Q4 RICS Construction Market Survey has identified the short supply of Quantity Surveyors with ‘59% of respondents reporting difficulties in sourcing labour’ in this field.

What is the RICS QS and Construction Conference 2015?
