Report reaching the newsroom of the best-selling and most sought after online business news publishers, Tectono Business Review, has it that the Nigerian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (NIQS), will hold a National Workshop on Measurement and Cost Management of Engineering Infrastructure Projects in Universal Hotel, Enugu from Thursday 30th to Friday 31st of July 2015.

Words from the institute’s Secretary for Marketing and Corporate Affairs has it that the two-day workshop would dwell, among others, on the ‘Challenges of Cost Management of Projects in a Dynamic Economic Setting, Measurement and Cost Management of Railways, Allied Transportation Networks, Concrete Bridges, Box culverts, drains, kerbs and associated works.’

We gathered that the workshop would also examine issues of preliminaries, site clearance and earthworks and the cost management of these items of works in engineering projects  with eminent resource persons and professionals in the sector who have held their own over the years. It would x-ray the entire gamut of Measurement and Cost Management of Heavy Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing Engineering (MEP) projects as well as the Cost Management of Airport Construction projects.

As usual, the event is expected to be graced by construction industry professionals such as quantity surveyors, engineers, architects, builders and officials of government agencies (MDAs) and procurement officers and would also beam searchlights into bills of quantities and other engineering models in the costing of engineering projects in Nigeria.
