“Project Financial Control & Reporting; Conflict Avoidance, Management & Dispute Resolution Procedures”
Project periods run over for few years. Though initial budgets, contract process are fixed and agreed beginning. Variations are common in items of cost, time and quality. Clients insist on knowing about how much spent, to be spent, prevailing risks and forecasted final cost at any given point of time. It will be critical for him to take timely actions towards in the view of delivering the project with expected profit. Financial reporting (Cost & revenue) is a prime responsibility of a Quantity Surveyor in contractor and client point of view.
Conflict and disputes in other words “disagreements either long terms or short terms are common in a group of activities such as complicated construction project. Contract drafting professionals and administrations are to be aware of how to manage conflict avoidance, how to mitigate the adverse impact of dispute and hoe to assist the team during the planning and execution of the project.

Key Areas of Discussion:
“Design Economics & Cost Planning”
Cost control of the project starts at the initiation of the design. This pre-contract cost control will spread through the design development period. When Architect develops the design, Quantity Surveyors/Cost Planners will develop the cost plan. It is interests and important to know how the cost of basic concept design calculated and then develops step by step where the design information (details of the building) is minimum. Quantity Surveyors shall be aware of such cost estimation methods including “Life Cycle Cost” where modern developers have more interest in economical “run” of buildings rather than construction costs.
Quantity Surveyors are cost advises to the design team during the pre-contract stages of the project. Comprehensive knowledge on cost control in the view of “Life Cycle Cost” mechanism is very important to Quantity Surveyor. This is a rare knowledge of the common commercial practice. Take this opportunity to learn the outlines, methods and controls in cost estimates during design.
