The Nigeria Institute Of Quantity Surveyors (NIQS) has promised to put in place effective regulatory framework to ensure professionalism and effective service delivery.

National President of the Institute, Mercy T. Iyortyer disclosed this while delivering an opening address at the Third Research Conference (RECON) holding at Zaranda Hotel in Bauchi.

She said that the conference themed ‘Confluence of Research, Theory and Practice in the Built environment’ is aimed at undertaking research into project development cycle and making such‎ information available to its members is a fundamental objective of the institute.

According to her, the research conferences which began in 2013 are also aimed at stimulating debates and discussions between researchers and practitioners as well as a basis for new areas of research in Quantity Survey and the construction industry.

“This conference will provide an avenue for the academia to interact with the practitioners. It will enhance capacity development for both groups. It will also provide sufficient opportunities for our members especially those in the academia to present papers. Together we can seek for ways to adopt the findings of research as means of growing the profession and promoting our influence,” she said.

Delivering a paper titled ‘Exploring Current and Future Roles of Quantity Surveyors In Nigerian Construction: Significance Of Education, Training And Research’ Abba Bello Ingawa noted that there is need for constant innovation and Research by quantity surveyors for them to be relevant.

“The traditional Quantity Surveyor lags behind the current and future anticipated needs of practising Quantity Surveyors  ‎for them to be at the frontier of the knowledge required to improve business opportunities and services offered to clients of the built environment,” he said.

He however informed that a modern Quantity Surveyor provides an alternative through provision of better Cost and value management and project management and other services.
