Consultant Quantity Surveyor

Balancing the books is something that every SME builder or construction company hopes to achieve at the very least. The ideal scenario is that your efforts wind up making you a profit when all is said and done; however, unfortunately, this is not always the case. You could put it down to the handful of oversights, or misfortunes that set you back during the build, or you could dig deeper and determine whether there is a better way to safeguard your efforts against loss to an extent.

Our Consultant Quantity Surveyors

Here at Red Quantity Surveying, we are consultant quantity surveyors that are ready to work for you at the drop of a hat. We appreciate that the nature of the construction industry means that having a dedicated QS on staff is most likely an expense that you cannot afford all year round, but the lack of this knowledge within your organisation may be a key factor that continually holds you back from making the profit that you are entitled to, and watching your endeavour go from strength-to-strength.

Why You Need A Consultant Quantity Surveyor

There are plenty of builders out there who, despite a lack of formal training in terms of pricing, undertake this part of the work themselves in order to save on the cost of hiring an external advisor. Sure, hiring a quantity surveyor doesn’t come cheap, but what you need to decide is whether the value that they can provide outweighs the cost.

The simple way of figuring this out is by being honest about whether they could do tasks that you are simply not very good at better, which would inevitably help the project run smoothly. How long does it typically take you to price a job on your own?

Thinking in terms of the hours that you invest in this practice, what cost would you put against those hours? It is also worth considering what else you could have done, using your more refined skills, during the same period of time that could have added value or earned you more money.

This is known as the “opportunity cost”, a basic economics concept, which helps illustrate the gain or loss that results from undertaking one job in favour of another. Here at Red Quantity Surveying, we encourage those that are considering the value added by retaining the services of one of our consultant quantity surveyors to forward their plans and receive a free quotation, which may shed a little more light on the matter and help make up your mind.

How a Consultant Quantity Surveyor Adds Value

Our goal is to help Australia and New Zealand’s SME residential and renovation builders access high-value quantity surveying staff as and when they need them. We are a just-in-time contractor, so you only pay for us when you identify the need for external support. The difference we can make is undeniable. We can connect you with the right quantity surveyor who will help you control your profits and become more competitive.

What’s more, we provide ongoing builder education and support so that you can continue to grow organically. At Red Quantity Surveying, we understand what it takes to run a small business, having experienced it ourselves, and we are passionate about helping you regain your time, reduce stress and increase profitability.

A just-in-time contracted consultant quantity surveyor could prove to be the collaborative external partner you’ve always needed to make that next leap forward. We encourage you to submit your plans or get in touch with our friendly team today to discuss the range of ‘take off’ services we offer.
