We stay up to date with current legislation, trends and issues through participating in industry forums and associations such as the Australian Water Association (AWA), the Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (AIQS) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). Our technical staff receive ongoing training in estimating systems including CostX, BIM compatible estimating software and @Risk as well as our inhouse developed infrastructure cost databases.
