As Quantity Surveyor Model Content Plans become more prevalent. Design teams and project managers need to understand how this impacts their Terms of References, Workflows and how to achieve the best value from a MCP.
This presentation will cover:
• What is a QS MCP and where are they currently adopted
• What is the aim of a QS MCP
• What to do if you receive a QS MCP
• How to incorporate a QS MCP into your BIM Execution Plans and object libraries
• Compromising and negotiating with a QS on MCP requirements
• Examples of QS MCP implementation

Learning Objectives:
1. Understand why Quantity Surveyors use Model Content Plans.
2. Understand how to interpret Model Content Plans from a Design Perspective.
3. Understand compromises and counter proposals that can be made to a Quantity Surveyor Model Content Plan.
