    • June 4, 2012 [INTRODUCTION TO CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY] Group 6 | Final Interview Report 12 What is the work involved? It is about the 5 distinct stages as you mentioned, Preliminary Stage, Detailed Design Stage, Tender Stage, Construction Stage, Post- Construction Stage, can you briefly explain all the stages? A Quantity Surveyormanages all costs relating to building and civil engineering projects, from the initial calculations to the final figures. Surveyors seek to minimize the costs of a project and enhance value for money, while still achieving the required standards and quality. Many of these are specified by statutory building regulations, which the surveyor needs to understand and adhere. A Quantity Surveyormay work for either the client or the contractor, working in an office or on-site. They are involved in a project from the start, preparing estimates and costs of the work. When the projectis in progress, quantity surveyors help other parties in the construction site.The title of the job may also be referred to as a construction cost consultant or commercial manager. Preliminary Stage or Early Stage is a phase of the starting of all construction. An example would be planning. What to do? How to do? When to do? The whole team of construction will come. Architect, Consultant Manager, Quantity Surveyor, and many more will have a brainstorming session. Tender Stage is a phase of tendering which involves firstly through a competitive exercise based on outline pricing and quality the identification of a preferred contracting organization; the second stage includes negotiation and working with the preferred contractor in order to arrive at a final price for the scheme. Brief answers
    • June 4, 2012 [INTRODUCTION TO CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY] Group 6 | Final Interview Report 13 Detailed Design Stage is a phase when all building construction projects include some elements in common – design, financial, estimating and legal considerations. Many projects of varying sizes reach undesirable end results, such as structural collapse, cost overruns, or litigation reason; those with experience in the field make detailed plans and maintain careful oversight during the project to ensure a positive outcome. Construction stage is a phase is a specific period, stipulated in a contract is the beginning from the date stated in the notice to proceed during which the contractor must complete construction, subject to the conditions of the contract. Post-construction stage is a phase of the construction; analyses arecarried out for the construction stage loads as well as other general loads,response spectrum, etc. Can you tell us the process of getting plan approval, is there any problems encountered? Any amendments to the original submission as per request by authority? A contractor's Quantity Surveyor is responsible for the performance of operations that mirror those of the owner's Quantity Surveyor; for example, the measurement and pricing of construction work, but specifically that actually performed by the contractor and the contractor's subcontractors, as opposed to the construction work described and measured in the construction contract between the owner and the contractor. Such a difference in quantity of work may arise from changes required by an owner, or by an architect or engineer on an owner's behalf.

Planning and monitoring of each activity, Preparation of Cash Flow for every month Billing, Co-coordinating with the site engineers to achieve the planned cash flow for inter payment certificate, Estimation of all the Bill of Quantities with the GFC drawings, preparation of Variation, Monthly Billing, Preparation of Monthly Progress Report, Updating Drawing schedule, Material approval list, material stock details, follow up with the client towards Billing etc.Supervision and quantity finalization of subcontractor’s bills.As per contract – preparation of claims, price variation and extra items.Project planning, scheduling, cost estimation, cost control & day today monitoring.Quantity Surveyor with monthly billing and preparation of Progress Report. As a quantity surveyor, how frequent does you carry out site inspection to check the work process? It's all depends on the construction and the schedule for one contract. As long as we ensure that the project adheres to local and national regulations. During the pre-construction, the responsibilities are to make sure the project adheres to local and national tax laws. Insurance is another aspect of the project. Insurance claims and cost of replacement are dealt with by the Quantity Surveyor. Valuable and accurate estimates of damages and costs of destroyed or damaged goods are also provided.
    • June 4, 2012 [INTRODUCTION TO CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY] Group 6 | Final Interview Report 15 After site inspection, do you report the work process to Project Manager or Project Director? What does the report is all about, can you specify it? We usually provide advice in decision making processes throughout the project management from start to finish. So, we usually have to report about price analysis, work items and quantity from up to date. Does a quantity surveyor important in a construction? What are the advantages for having a quantity surveyor and the disadvantages for not having a quantity surveyor? Of cause they do. Without us, the team is not complete. Without us, there isn't anybody doing the calculation and the precaution for the construction. The advantages would be we can keep our financial keep in check and to prevent financial crisis occurs. We also ensure that the resources of the construction industry are utilized to the best advantage of society by providing,inter alia,the financial management for projects and a cost consultancy service to theclient and designer during the whole construction process. The disadvantages would be the calculation is in our hands. If we calculate wrong, it might take money and time or even lives. That's why if you are not good in math or not confident in your calculation, don't do this firm.
    • June 4, 2012 [INTRODUCTION TO CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY] Group 6 | Final Interview Report 16 The responsibilities of a Quantity Surveyor:  carrying out initial feasibility studies, to assess costs and materials and estimate the amount of time needed for a project to be complete  ensuring that materials to be used during construction match up to environmental guidelines  negotiating costs and working with vendors to draw up bids for contracts  monitoring the construction of a building project to ensure costs and materials are in line with the initial assessment  updating the client on the progress of the project, with particular reference to financial matters  staying up-to-date on new standards in construction, property and surveying  preparing and maintaining financial records Responsibilities
    • June 4, 2012 [INTRODUCTION TO CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY] Group 6 | Final Interview Report 17 Quantity Surveyors estimate and manage the cost of construction projects. Their responsibilities begin at the planning stage and continue through the construction period. First, they interpret architectural or engineering drawings and specifications to calculate project costs. During the building stage, they monitor expenses and check on any changes in design to see whether the cost will be affected. They also provide monthly cash-flow forecasts to their client and may organize the amount and timing of payments to contractors. Quantity Surveyors work in partnership with architects, engineers, builders, contractors, suppliers and project owners. Students who are going to advance into Quantity Surveyor, it helps students to work as a team to finish up a given project. Besides that, it brings understanding of a construction process, on the way we interview a profession and documentation of proposal. Conclusion
