The impact of Building information modelling on quantity surveyors
All information needed to complete final dissertation (B)
To reiterate everything for the understanding of the dissertation. Initially Dissertation A was conducted.
3000 words completed which is weighted 20% of the module as the proposal. Dissertation B weighted 80% with 12000 max words, from introduction to conclusion.
Simply, Dissertation B is Dissertation A plus
9000 words. So, it’s just expanding on dissertation A. So in essence Dissertation b must flow with dissertation A. it`s just extra words.
Already completed: 3k Dissertation A – includes:
· Intro -
· Literature review -
· Methodology -
· Conclusion -
200 words or so
I will attach Dissertation A below.

Second review – achieving either one of the objectives I’ve already mentioned just above. Check methodology “flow chart” from Dissertation A
Third review -
(case study) achieving the “Secondary research objective” one of the two objectives under aim 1. 1000 words

Further explanation on the data:
- Primary data (interview/questionnaire)
- Interview Data analysis
Analyse the 3 interviewee respondents by seeing themes and patterns through their responses, I will attach the word document of the data below. I will also attach a previous dissertation of someone else. They have very similar questions, and you can see how they have analysed it. I will attach this below.
2000 words You don’t have to analyse all questions, start analysis from question 8 to question 17.
Interviews were conducted via zoom for covid related reasons and easier for interviewee since it’s a more reliable approach.
– Questionnaire data
I will attach a word and excel document. The word document has the tables I would like you to use, I have added a few comments for better understanding of data, and you can also check the excel document.
The word document has Q10 which is a qualitative data, get 2 responses or 4 and analyse them the same way the interview is done.
2500 words Analyse as many questions from question 6 to 18. If word count isn’t enough then analyse less questions if needed.
Qualtrics is used to gather data, links were sent through linked in. (
