Working To Make The Sustainable, Attainable


What is a Quantity Surveyor?

Quantity Surveyors are often referred to as Construction Consultants. We manage the financial aspects of a project, whilst ensuring value for money and optimising cost on behalf of the Client.

What does a Quantity Surveyor do?

We estimate, monitor and control construction costs, from the feasibility stage of a project through to the completion of the construction period.  We identify opportunities to reduce project costs and provide cash projections to allow the Client to plan the budget ahead of time. We also provide the Client with reports on the progress made against the programme, which significantly reduces delays and any unknowns that may become apparent.

How do Quantity Surveyors perform their work?

Before a construction project starts, a Quantity Surveyor will study drawings and specifications about a new building normally provided by Architects or Engineers. From this information, we will be able to calculate the quantities of materials for the build. Quantity Surveyors rely on a range of technical measurement tools to produce accurate costs and data to give early cost advice, budget, and benchmark projects and to prepare life cycle cost plans. During the build we keep a constant check on these costs.

What are the benefits of appointing a Chartered Quantity Surveyor?

A Chartered Quantity Surveyor will have been assessed by a peer group of experienced practitioners  to have the blend of commercial and technical skills and expertise to operate at the highest level of standards and care in today’s markets. It is this mix of professional standards that increase the certainty that your project will be on time and within budget, whilst adding value in terms of cost and value optimisation.

How can you check if your Quantity Surveyor is Chartered?

You can discover if a surveyor is qualified and RICS chartered by using the "Find a member" tool, which can be found at https://www.rics.org/uk/find-a-member/ . Here you can search by name, town, country, membership type and accreditation.
