Quantity Surveying

In the highly hassled world of economics, the role of a Quantity Surveyor within the construction team is highly crucial. It is a dynamic and a challenging sector that syndicates both commercial and management skills with a vast knowledge of the construction industry.

The most basic job for a Quantity Surveyor is to review and provide estimates for new projects and quantity development. Surveyors conduct inspections at sites for reviewing tenders, analyzing conditions, assessing risk, identifying activities and they prepare various tender documents such as BOQs and extract drawings. They will also obtain quantities from drawings, checking BOQ against the drawing and raising RFI with clients, prepare and analyse costing for tender assessing scope, tender complexity and provide feedback to the Managers. The team will then review and assess tenders one by one in detail, ensuring that all tender documents are received and are correct.

A professional Quantity Surveyor guarantees competitiveness and compliance of tenders and ensures that all the deals are perfectly in line with the overall project scope, specifications, standards and requirements. As far as a good Quantity Survey team is concerned, they perfectly know all market trends of construction and the impacts it creates on both local and global stage. There is a prominent requirement of a great financial control wherever there is a construction work taking place, and Quantity Surveyors make you accomplish these things.
