Building Cost Estimator & Consultant In New Zealand

At Red Quantity Surveying we have been helping builders and project managers keep their construction jobs on the right track and within budget for years. We provide expert cost estimation for renovation and residential construction jobs at any stage whether it be development, prep, construction or post-contract. We equip builders with the skills and the information they need to see their work is completed on schedule and within their agreed budget to ensure no added expenses are incurred to the builder. We also provide premium training to those with little or no training in cost estimation and quantity surveying to help them to increase their revenue.

The Role Of A Cost Estimator

For the modern builder, the success of a project is dependent on the efficient use of resources with minimum expenses. In order to achieve this end, construction project managers are hiring experienced and effective cost estimators in greater numbers than ever. An estimator’s role is to maximize operational efficiency by negotiating the best possible value for the homeowner or customer’s money while keeping the expenses as low as possible. Through careful assessment, planning, negotiation and mediation estimators keep a project on track even when unexpected incidents occur that threaten the project with delays. A good cost estimator will accurately evaluate the total cost of materials and labour that a builder should charge as well as offer a blueprint to manage the work schedule efficiently to complete the project.

Building Cost Estimators Can Help Your Project

We can provide you with a detailed quote for pricing, estimates, schedules and contract admin services on a project at any stage of development. We understand that everyone in the construction trade does not have the effective skill of accurate cost estimation, that is why we are dedicated to providing education and information to builders on all aspects of pricing and project execution.

We are a big believer in the idea that by improving skills and expertise industry-wide everybody enjoys greater benefits from customer to service provider, builder to architect. We pride ourselves on providing ongoing builder education and support by producing informative emails, blogs, social media and real life talks, seminars and workshops. We are focused on educating and assisting you to work smarter, rather than harder, and reducing your increasingly exhausting workload.
