RICS

In this month’s edition of Modus, we share the insight we’ve gathered from RICS professionals, their clients and other industry leaders as part of our Futures project and discuss how RICS plans to adapt in order to build a futureproof profession.

  • In the cover feature, we examine how the profession is adapting to urbanisation, digitisation and global climate change. Industry leaders discuss how the role of the surveyor is being redefined and the ways they’re adapting in order to meet industry demand. 
  • Also, RICS CEO Sean Tompkins outlines how RICS will help all members of the profession – new and established – navigate the changes on the horizon and embrace the opportunities and challenges it will bring.
  • Elsewhere in this issue, we speak to five change-makers about continual professional development and how RICS is ensuring that the surveyors of the future have the skills they require.
  • We brought together six surveying figures from across the professional spectrum to discuss how the profession of surveying needs to evolve to remain relevant in a fast-changing environment.

Also, in this edition: 

  • UK Young Surveyor of the Year Blane Perrotton MRICS reflects on his career so far and his plans for the future. 
  • We talk to Estates Gazette Rising Star and Property Week’s RESI Trailblazer Rosanna Lawn MRICS, who talks about modern methods of construction, sustainability, talent and skills. 
  • We examine the particular challenges faced by SMEs in this period of uncertainty and change.
  • We consider how you can help the next generation of surveyors by becoming an APC counsellor.
  • And we ask whether the success of Citymapper could finally see Mobility as a Service go mainstream.
