Dr Sa'id Ahmed

About

I am a Lecturer in Quantity Surveying in the Department of Civil Engineering, Surveying and Construction Management. I am also a Fellow with the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and an Incorporate member with the Chartered Institute of Building (ICIOB).

I hold a PhD in Construction Management from Nottingham Trent University (NTU), UK having obtained an MSc in Construction Project Management from University of Salford, Manchester UK. I completed my BSc Quantity Surveying in Nigeria where I also worked for several years within the construction industry, taught as a lecturer as well as within the higher education sector. Prior to my current role, I worked with NTU for over 4 years as part-time lecturer teaching quantity surveying and construction management courses.

My PhD study titled as 'A framework for Collaborative Costing in the UK Construction Industry: An exploratory study' has led to various peer-reviewed publications in journals and international conferences. I continue to remain active within the research area having authored a publication in a leading reputable refereed built environment journal (Journal of Financial Management of Property and Construction) and published in several international conference proceedings (International Group For Lean Construction (IGLC)). I am a member of the editorial review panel of the Journal of Construction Economic and Building and a reviewer for the IGLC. I am currently researching the latest trends in Lean Construction and the concept of collaborative costing in practice. My main objective is to contribute towards promoting and embedding ‘research-informed' teaching at Kingston University, developing our students professional, and technical skills to prepare them for a range of exciting, challenging and fulfilling career in built environment.
