About the Project
There has also been a lot of interest in 5D (Cost) Building Information Modelling (BIM), but the extent to which 5D BIM has been taken up by Quantity Surveyors remains low. When it comes to estimating, various databases, such as BCIS, SPONS and others, have been developed to provide current values for estimating construction costs. However, the integration of these into cost estimating software and 5D BIM is yet to also take-off.
The purpose of this PhD is to explore new ways of estimating, measuring and managing construction costs. Applications are invited from practitioners and others interested in exploring what needs to happen within the Quantity Surveying profession to ensure that the modern QS is best prepared for the new world of BIM. There are many angles to these issues, and the precise focus for the PhD can be determined in relation to the applicant’s own field of expertise, as can the geographical focus.
Within this broad theme, applicants are invited to submit a research proposal. Further details on how to write a PhD research proposal are available using the links below: - http://www.reading.ac.uk/web/files/graduateschool/How_to_write_a_research_proposal_-_July_2018.pdf
