Quantity surveyors manage all costs relating to building projects. A quantity surveyor is involved at all stages of construction, from initial planning and drawings to completion of works and beyond. Quantity surveyors can represent property developers, where they will be involved in tendering and procurement of contractors and monitoring costs, or they can represent the contractors themselves.
We will ensure that your project is completed cost-effectively, to the correct standard and monitor the budget throughout the project.
At the beginning of the project, at concept stage, the quantity surveyor will examine the site, undertake feasibility studies, and provide advice on exactly what the client can afford to build within their budget. When the project is underway and drawings prepared, the quantity surveyor will carefully measure the work required, working closely with the client and architect. They will prepare cost plans listing in detail the materials and labour which will be required. These plans can include the Bill of Quantities, Schedule of Works and Schedule of Rates.
