Our aim is to connect those who need our services with the best person for the job - and only when you need us.

We all know how busy you are, and that you are time-poor at the best of times. Long days on site, and late nights costing up jobs that haven't even come to fruition yet.  The reason RedQS exists is purely to help you reduce your on and offsite workload so you can focus on the job at hand and bring home the bacon.

Red QS is made up of contract Quantity Surveyors all across Australasia. Our Head Office is based in Christchurch New Zealand but we work on projects across both New Zealand and Australia.

With a diverse pool of skill, we have the right people for the job at the right time. As a Quantity Surveying company, we have a range of clients. We work within all facets of the building industry and listed here are just some of the services we offer.

Commercial Quantity Surveyor

As the primary point of contact for a project, you know that buck stops with you. At the end of each project that you undertake a certain portion of the praise or blame, depending on whether you have made a profit or incurred a loss, lies at your feet.

Why Hire A Commercial Quantity Surveyor?

When things don’t go as anticipated it is often worth considering whether the practice of continuing to complete the pricing and planning work is still a smart move, given the lack of formal training, or if the time has come to find a commercial quantity surveyor that could bridge that gap in knowledge and make for many more profitable jobs.

Here at Red Quantity Surveying, our goal is to connect those that need our services with the best person for the job, as and when required. We understand that an on-staff quantity surveyor isn’t always a reality for many SME residential and renovation builders, and so we are the go-to people that you can trust in and depend on when you identify the need for a professional, thorough and experienced pair of eyes. 

Why Going Without A Quantity Surveyor Doesn’t Always Pay Off

Accuracy is essential from the outset of any project and with accuracy comes greater control over time, budget and profitability. We want to afford you the luxury of a clear roadmap that can help you track the progress of your projects and ensure that no major items have been missed in the planning.

There are far too many builders that choose to take a crack at the pricing of their projects and wing it in hope that they are the successful tender and that it ultimately leads to a profit. The reality of this approach is that if they win the tender, the risk of losing money is significant as the builder does not have enough data to pick up on extra variations, or to ensure their team is working efficiently to maintain profit.

At Red Quantity Surveying, we believe that the reason for so many projects leading to a loss is as a result of a lack of training provided to builders during their apprenticeships. Our experiences working alongside countless industry professionals have revealed just how wide the gap in knowledge can often be.

As such, we endeavour to provide ongoing builder education and support. This can be accessed via our blog, social media, e-mail, through attending our seminars and by signing up to our newsletter, which, incidentally, will afford you $250 off your first quoted job.

Having a commercial quantity surveyor or choosing to complete the initial pricing exercise alone can make all the difference between making or losing money, it’s that simple. Our team works on projects throughout Australia and New Zealand, and we are usually available as and when you require us.
