Construction Quantity Surveyor

Ask any residential and renovation SME builder about the percentage of projects they undertake that turn a significant enough profit that allowed them to grow their enterprise and the chances are that a large portion of them will reflect on a small handful rather out of the many on their books. The construction industry is a tough place to become established and is made that bit more difficult due to the lack of practical advice provided to builders during their apprenticeships about pricing their work.

Why Do You Need A Construction Quantity Surveyor?

A construction quantity surveyor can make a world of difference when pricing a job or tendering for a project. Naturally, it is difficult for SMEs to be able to afford to retain one on staff. However, the good news is that the team here at Red Quantity Surveying are just-in-time contractors that can be called on as and when needed.

We help SME builders, just like you, throughout Australia and New Zealand to run thriving and profitable businesses by using our contract pricing services and affording you the chance to access ongoing builder education and support, via our pricing education platforms including email, social media, blogs and in-person talks and seminars.

The Tricky Task of Quantity Surveying  

Quantity surveying is a tricky task to undertake and one that many builders take a stab at themselves, in the hope that this time the project will turn a profit. This practice is far too common in the industry and leads to inefficiencies across the board, and hampers the ability of many SMEs to profit from the sterling work that they deliver.

A quantity surveyor requires a significant amount of knowledge that covers a considerable breadth of specialist areas, including law, accountancy, architecture, design and building. Most importantly, having a quantity surveyor at your disposal that employs effective common sense in tandem with all of the aforementioned can often reap many more rewards than missed opportunities.

Those that retain the services of a construction quantity surveyor gain back so much more time that they can use to focus on doing what they do best. As such, while the cost of hiring one may appear to be expensive on paper, the value added as a result of their presence is undeniable in the long run. The beauty of what the team here at Red Quantity Surveying offers is that we work as and when we are required, so you don’t have to pay for such services unless they’re needed.

Outsourcing is a viable option when it comes to finding a quantity surveyor. You gain their knowledge and ability to price for you; they will help to ensure that your team have the right information as and when they require it and can also assist in sorting out variations and progress claims.
