It is widely known that the emergence of Building Information Modelling (BIM) is significantly affecting the cost management process and the role of quantity surveying professionals in the construction industry. The utilization of BIM is moving towards transforming how information is managed by and for quantity surveying professionals, especially due to the transition from 2D drawings. This chapter starts with describing the conventional cost management processes and highlighting the shortcomings of using it. Subsequently, the role of BIM to tackle those challenges through providing an autoamted quantification feature and integarting the cost estimation into the desisgn process. The integration of 4D and 5D BIM is discussed in this chapter to provide a siginfcant understanding how BIM enahanced the process of develop a budget of construction projects. This chapter also proposes an effective process to teach 5D BIM at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The process is expected to enable a deep learning for students to absorb the required knowledge before starting their careers in the construction industry.
