What Is A Quantity Surveyor?

A quantity surveyor is one of the most valuable resources for any construction project as they help ensure timely delivery of the project with minimal effect on expenses. For the duration of a project, a quantity surveyor can perform multiple roles including cost estimator, quantity surveyor, and, contract administrator. The most efficient and effective quantity surveyor will have extensive experience working on different projects in different industries and have built up a strong portfolio. This helps the builder complete the project within stipulated budget without compromising on the quality and quantity of materials used. Depending on the type of project and the particular work required a quantity surveyor prepares important documents like budget estimates, elemental estimates, fully tendered pricing documentation, progress claims, variations  and final accounts in the construction timeline.

will kenndey builder - qs testimonialWill Kennedy of Kennedy Bros - Riverton, had this to say about RedQS "The massive benefit to using RedQS is there are no unknowns. For us as builders, it is an independent service that helps the clients understand the value of the home."

Like an acid test to see if the homeowner is genuine or not, Will added this "A lot of clients don’t realise how expensive it is to build, even to the minimum standards. People are surprised when we get the full QS report and it gives them a good reality check. If a client isn’t willing to pay two thousand dollars for a QS report, then they won’t be willing to pay for a $390,000 house."

Chris Donnelly Builders _ Renovate New Builds_Nelson_red quantity surveyNelson based builder Chris Donnelly says "Previously I thought cost was an obstacle to using RedQS, but that was because I didn’t understand how to allow for it in my offsite overheads. I also didn’t know previously that there are different services, like materials only, labour only or peer checking of my own pricing, not just the full take off services."

The without prompting he added "I have already been recommending RedQS all over the place!"

Good on ya mate!
