Abstract: Singapore s construction industry is dynamic and market trends have been changing. These factors affect the job scope of quantity surveyors and may potentially pose challenges for this profession. The highly publicized Public-Private Partnership in Singapore forms a unique relationship among industry players and has distinctive methods in its delivery processes. This paper describes how quantity surveyors can address these challenges by examining the current roles in their involvement and identifying opportunities to boost their current capacity. It studies how current QS in PPP are developing new and existing services to meet the both the government s and consortium s needs and whether QS firms in Singapore are ready to undertake these responsibilities. Extensive literature review of the emergent role of QS in PPP in the United Kingdom are made, ground research among management consultancy firms and QS firms in Singapore are carried out through surveys and interviews with experienced personnel. Generally, the market for PPP in Singapore is still maturing and local QS firms are seeking ways to identify new business opportunities in PPP. Having only recently started PPP projects in Singapore, it paves the way for a fresh experience among QS professionals and more research on PPP in Singapore can be done to better define the roles that quantity surveyors can undertake.
