Having read your article 'Architects take a hammering from quantity surveyors' ( ajplus 22.05.06). I must say that I am quite shocked that the AJ and your sister website www. qsweek. com would countenance publishing such utterly unprofessional drivel.

The statements made are totally ridiculous, suggesting that members of the quantity surveying profession are unable to properly assess costs of projects and implying that architects work in some kind of vacuum thinking up how to 'bust budgets'.

There has been much said over the problems of introducing the new regulations. All of us in the construction industry need to address the issue and in normal good practice we work as teams using the expertise of well-trained professionals to provide the most appropriate response to each brief.
