Cost is generally accepted as an essential ingredient of good design. However, the co-ordination and integration of building services constitute a major problem in the procurement and cost management of buildings coupled with gaps in knowledge by practitioners in the technology of building services. the study proposed a generic framework for integrating quantity surveyors services in the procurement and effective cost management of building services in Malaysia construction industry.
