Letters: Leave QSs alone, we're not all bad

  • Comment

Paul Hyett's article (Why we must heal the rift with the qs, aj 26.11.98) would have been much more productive if he had concentrated on the vast majority of work that involves good practice, rather than look at examples of things going wrong. We can all find stories of colleagues from another profession, or even our own, not performing well.

The education of quantity surveyors and, indeed, students in all construction- related professions is focused very much on the spirit of the ideas generated by Sir Michael Latham and Sir John Egan. Furthermore, the qs profession is extremely active in the inter-professional forums such as cic and cib, where they work productively alongside architects (and others) to the benefit of all.
