In the Willis book, the world of the quantity surveyor was portrayed as a mainly technical back office operation providing a limited range of services where, in the days before compulsory competitive tendering and fee competition, ‘professional services were not sold like cans of beans in a supermarket’. The world of the Willis’s was typically organised around the production of bills of quantities and final accounts, with professional offices being divided into pre- and post-contract services. This model was uniformly distributed across small and large practices, the main difference being that the larger practices would tend to get the larger contracts and the smaller practices the smaller contracts.
