Abstract: Quantity Surveyors are constantly working under intense pressure, especially during estimation process, as working out the measurements and estimations involved high degree of precisions. This research study seeks to examine the stressors-stress relationships of Quantity Surveyors in Singapore. The specific objectives are to (a) assess the stress level of quantity surveyors; (b) identify the major type of stressors that contribute to the stress of quantity surveyors; (c) study the casual relationships between the stressors and stress of quantity surveyors; (d) develop a model to predict the stress level of quantity surveyors and; (e) recommend ways to manage stress of quantity surveyors. It was found out that the stress level of quantity surveyors in Singapore is at the optimum level, i.e. not significantly high or significantly low. This indicates that they are working at an optimum simulation zone. There was also no significance difference between the stress level of contractor and consultant/client quantity surveyors. The variables that are significantly correlated with stress level are XT1.1, XT1.2, XP1.15, XP2.20 and XI3.26. Personal stressor was revealed to be the major type of stressors contributing to the stress of quantity surveyors. A regression model to predict the stress level of quantity surveyors was developed. To help quantity surveyors manage their stress effectively, it is recommended that they have a proper time management and lead a healthy lifestyle. The employer of quantity surveyors should also frequently monitor and review the workload of quantity surveyors, adjust their working hours and perform stress appraisals.
