ROLE OF QUANTITY SURVEYOR
The term quantity surveyor derives from the role taken in quantifying the various
resources that it takes to construct a given project, such as labour, supervision, plant
A Quantity Surveyor is a construction industry professional who specialises in estimating
the value of construction works and can also be referred to as a “Cost Engineer” or
“Cost Planner”. Quantity Surveyors are involved at different stages of the construction
process, typically prior to construction, during construction and following completion of
Quantity Surveyors work with accountants, architects, engineers, builders, clients,
developers, financiers, government, insurance underwriters, loss adjusters, solicitors
and subcontractors. The Quantity Surveyor’s detailed knowledge of construction costs
allows them to perform the following tasks independently of whether they are working
for the Client or the Contractor:
Prior to Construction:
Estimating project budgets
Analysis of the effect of design changes on the project budget
Cost planning to refine the budget as the design documents develop
Preparation of Bills of Quantities to assist in the tender process
Preparation of Feasibility Studies
Assessment of the contractor’s progress claims
Assessment of variation and delay claims
Provision of cost control services
Procurement of subcontractors and labour to carry out specialist trade works
Negotiation and settlement of accounts
Monthly forecasting and cost reporting
Monthly negotiation and agreement of payments for works carried out
Calculation of the final project cost
Preparation of tax depreciation reports for investors and property owners
Expert witness reports to assist in the settlement of building disputes
Pre Contract/ 1st Stage
During this first stage, when design is still being decided, the QS will have to prepare
cost estimate and also advice the developer on the cost for the proposed project. If the
cost is too much for the employer, the QS will have come in and see which areas that
can be 'cut'. Then the QS needs to inform the architect about what changes must be
done. However, if the cost meets the employer's budget, the QS would start preparing
the tender documents. That includes, the contract documents.
Post Contract/ 2nd Stage
In this stage, the employer have already agreed to all the contracts and construction can
start to take place. The QS will have to give recommendations of the payment based on
monthly evaluations. This stage also requires the QS to make site visits to verify what
the contractor has done.
Final Accounts/ 3rd Stage
During this stage, the QS will have to settle the bills, form the final value of the
constructed building and sign off. That is where the QS's work ends.
