Exactal Becomes an AIQS Standard Corporate Partner

Exactal is pleased to advise that we have entered into a Corporate Partnership with the AIQS (Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors) for 2017-18.

The AIQS is a professional standards body which ensures that practising Quantity Surveyors are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of professional excellence. The Institute’s primary functions are to regulate the necessary standards of education and training which lead to membership, ensure members are kept abreast of emerging issues affecting them and the industry as a whole and encourage and provide continued professional development, amongst other things.

AIQS is now the fourth industry organisation, after NZIQS, AIB and RICS, that Exactal has partnered with. Exactal is dedicated to supporting industry organisations such as these in order to benefit our users and to support members. Exactal has had a long standing relationship with the AIQS over several years, but this new partnership will now bring the two companies closer together. The partnership with AIQS includes several activities, such as working together on an event in the next 12 months and providing content for the AIQS e-bulletin.

The announcement of the AIQS sponsorship coincides with the news that Exactal is now offering the latest version of the ASMM (Australian Standard Method of Measurement), ASMM6, as a CostX® phraseology. This is available to download at no charge for CostX® clients under maintenance here. ASMM6 has been approved for use by the AIQS, and by providing the new ASMM6 phraseology to use in CostX®, this allows Exactal’s QS clientele to ensure their work is in line with the most up-to-date information. Exactal would like to thank both AIQS and AECOM for their assistance with this.

Penny Dolton, Sales Manager for Exactal Australia & New Zealand, says “I’m thrilled that Exactal is now partnered with the AIQS. In addition to our NZIQS and AIB partnerships, this means Exactal is now working closely with three large industry bodies in the AU/NZ region. This serves to benefit our clients immensely. We have worked closely with the AIQS in the past but now we look forward to further supporting the industry through this partnership. We’re also pleased that ASMM6 can now be used in CostX®, further benefiting our clients.”

Grant Warner, CEO of AIQS, also notes “It is exciting times for AIQS to be partnering with a company renowned worldwide for providing BIM estimating solutions. Partnering with Exactal will help facilitate BIM-specific education and provision of information to the broader quantity surveying profession. We look forward to working in partnership with Exactal over the next 12 months.”
