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.

Running a small to medium enterprise, particularly in the construction industry is no mean feat. Anybody that undertakes to make a success of their endeavour will inevitably find themselves wishing from time to time that they had a little more assistance or the resources to retain vital services that could prove to be the difference between staying afloat and growing year-on-year.

The good news is that here at Red Quantity Surveying, we offer freelance residential and light commercial quantity surveyor services in Australia and New Zealand. Having started out from small beginnings, we appreciate just how important having the right team can be in securing tenders and profiting from the projects that you complete.

Comprehensive Services Just-in-Time

There are many benefits to be gained by working with us.

With regards to the trade services that we offer, you can count on us for preliminary budget estimates, elemental cost estimates, fully tendered jobs, materials or labour schedules, contract admin services, peer reviews and custom packages.

Once we know the expectations of the homeowner that you are building for we can factor this into the clear roadmap that we create so that there are no acrimonious budget blowouts along the way that could sour the relationship and lead to funds being withheld.

However, while the freelance quantity surveyor that works with you adds immense value to your project, here at Red Quantity Surveying, we want to help you to grow your knowledge and understanding of our work and we can help you achieve this through the provision of ongoing builder education and support.
