Abstract

Issues concerning evaluation of sustainable development are addressed. Some ways in which quantity surveyors and cost engineers can contribute to the more efficient deployment of resources in construction are highlighted. The importance of taking a wide view of the procurement process, including matters pertaining to strategic planning, design, construction, and facility management, are explored to enable cost management to be integrated throughout all stages of a project's life cycle. The most obvious areas of professional involvement are explored. Some of the latest research that demonstrates why environmental economics is a highly attractive professional pursuit are described.
