We know no one ever taught you how to price and you feel like you are winging it.
You want the confidence to price jobs accurately.
We spent years hearing builders say “you win some you lose some” and it is NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
You can be in control of the profit you make from each job.
This seminar will teach you the theory so you can have a repeatable pricing process to use each time you quote for a client.
Quantity Surveyors are taught a certain theory for a reason, and it is to combat the unknowns as best possible, and to provide a road-map to profitability once the job begins.
We've researched the most common mistakes builders make when it comes to costing and quoting. We solve them with our pricing training.
How long is the seminar?
We run from 9:00am to between 4:30-5pm (depending on how many questions you have!)

Victoria Harrison has been working alongside you providing QS reports with her team for years.
Working heavily in the earthquake recovery in Christchurch, she has spent time on site with builders and truly got to know how you think, and how to extract your incredible problem-solving ability and translate that into pricing exercises.
She knows where it hurts, and she knows why it hurts. Having been frustrated with the lack of support for builders to bridge the gap of knowledge that would make all the difference to a builders bottom line.
Victoria has designed this workshop so that it will fill the gaps and provide builders with the support and learning that they have been looking for with the aim of dramatically increasing your profit by managing your figures.
