Quantity Surveyors

The Quantity Surveyor, together with the Project Manager, is a key member of the development and construction team; the essential link between the Client, specialists and the contractor. Depending on the procurement route selected, the QS would also undertake the duties of Employers Agent/Contract Administrator.

When undertaking the role of EA/CA we work closely with the Client to best understand their “Employer Requirements” and manage this throughout the course of the project to ensure the build complies.

We will also be responsible for issuing any necessary instructions/certificates.

In the event that any claims arise, we will also be responsible for dealing with matters to ensure a satisfactory resolution.

Overall, as part of this role, we work to ensure the contract is administered in the most economic and professional manner to best protect all parties.

A quantity surveyor’s main role is to provide expert advice and support clients on matters related to construction costs. Typically, this will include the preparation of cost estimates, contract preparation and budget management. Quantity surveyors also help clients to identify potential cost savings throughout the project and are on hand to help avoid any costly mistakes during the construction process.

A quantity surveyor can help you to save money on a construction project by providing accurate cost estimates, identifying potential cost savings, and helping you to avoid overspending. They can also help you to negotiate better deals with suppliers and subcontractors, and to manage your construction costs more effectively.

A quantity surveyor does not typically choose materials on a construction project, which is typically the responsibility of the architect or the client. However, they will be able to provide advice on the cost and suitability of different materials and can help to ensure that the materials selected are appropriate for the project and are procured at the best possible price.

A quantity surveyor typically works with other trade professionals, such as architects, engineers, and contractors, to ensure that a construction project is completed on time and within budget. They may also work with building surveyors, who are responsible for ensuring that buildings meet health and safety standards, and with property valuers, who provide advice on property values and investments.
