The quantity surveying profession has largely developed over the last century, but has now grown to such an extent that it forms the second largest sector or specialism in the membership of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, aided by the amalgamation with the former Institute of Quantity Surveyors (IQS) in 1983. Quantity surveyors are employed in private practices, public offices and by contractors, and they undertake a great diversity of work, as described by the author in Quantity Surveying Practice.
