Blaming the QS is against the Egan trend

  • Comment

Members of the RICS divisional executive board have drawn my attention to Paul Hyett's article on quantity surveyors' fees (AJ 31.9.00).

It is very insulting, and we are surprised he chose to write in such a vein.Quite what Hyett hopes to achieve is difficult to imagine.At the present time, with the Egan report and 'working together' at the forefront of thinking, it is contrary to the current trend.

We i n t h e RICS believe the priority must be to strive for a modern construction industry. To help achieve that, we have gone through fundamental changes, and shall be looking to manage the construction process in an efficient way, with teamwork as an important element.

I hope Hyett will identify with this philosophy, instead of sending out offensive messages such as this.

There are so many opportunities for creating a new environment in the construction industry. We must not waste them.
