Taking off quantities on a university degree course ?

Quantity surveyors - takers off or managers?


Should taking off quantities be removed from the quantity surveying curriculum, after all these days most taking off is done by computer software.

Not for the first time quantity surveyors seem to have an identity crisis. Are they becoming to posh to measure?


Professional institutions have been pushing for some time now for graduates to be the masters of the process and not the technicians.




For the past thirty years various sources have been predicting the demise of the quantity surveyor. Does the traditional quantity surveyor have a future?
