A quantity surveyor manages all costs relating to building and civil engineering projects, from the initial calculations to the final figures. Surveyors seek to minimise the costs of a project and enhance value for money, while still achieving the required standards and quality. Many of these are specified by statutory building regulations, which the surveyor needs to understand and adhere to.
A quantity surveyor may work for either the client or the contractor, working in an office or on-site. They are involved in a project from the start, preparing estimates and costs of the work. When the project is in progress, quantity surveyors keep track of any variations to the contract that may affect costs and create reports to show profitability.
The title of the job may also be referred to as a construction cost consultant or commercial manager.
Typical work activities
Tasks vary depending on the nature of the project being worked on and the point in the process it's at. Typical activities throughout the stages can include:
•preparing tender and contract documents, including bills of quantities with the architect and/or the client;
•undertaking costs analysis for repair and maintenance project work;
•assisting in establishing a client's requirements and undertaking feasibility studies;
