Building Information Modelling and Quantity Surveying Practice
MetadataShow full item record
The construction industry is widely acknowledged as unique and conservative. BuildingInformation Modeling (BIM) systems have the potential to revolutionize current practices and toautomate the measurement of quantities from construction drawings. However, there are fears thatsuch developments could threaten the viability of the quantity surveying profession. This studyexplores the relationship between BIM systems and the roles of quantity surveyors in theconstruction industry. We argue that BIM challenges traditional roles of quantity surveyors andtheir relevance to the construction industry. We recommend the development of revised curriculafor quantity surveyors and further research into standard systems of measurement.

Estimation of electrochemical noise impedance and corrosion rates from electrochemical noise measurements.Lowe, Alexander M. (2002)Electrochemical noise refers to the spontaneous fluctuations in potential and current that can be observed on a corroding metal. The use of electrochemical noise for obtaining information on the corrosion process generates ...
