Despite rapid globalisation with investment funds flowing across borders and money pouring into constructed assets, the construction profession has until now, lacked a common language and framework for classifying and reporting construction costs.

Once a year, the global facility management (FM) industry unites to recognise the important role of professionals in the sector.

As part of their aim to professionalise the property industry more broadly.

In March 2017, the Association of South African Quantity Surveyors (ASAQS) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoU) to further professional development and information sharing for members of both institutions. 

With South Africa and Nigeria being Africa’s two biggest economies, the recent credit rating downgrades by global ratings agencies, will negatively affect both nations and hit Africa’s overall economic growth.

Following extensive industry consultation, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) is tightening up requirements for RICS professionals and regulated firms working in the land, property and construction sector, with the publication of a new global professional statement on conflicts of interest.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) is placing a stronger focus on the empowerment of women in the built environment sector at the Annual RICS Africa Summit, taking place in Sandton, Johannesburg, from 22-23 February 2017.

South Africa’s financial hub – Sandton Central in Johannesburg - will play host to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) influential annual Africa Summit from 22-23 February 2017.
