What is a Quantity Surveyor?
As defined by Wikipedia, “A Quantity Surveyor (QS) is a professional person working within the construction industry. The role of the QS, in general terms, is to manage and control contracts and costs within construction projects. This involves the deployment of an extensive set of skills acquired through specialised formal education, specific training and experience.Traditionally referred to as a Professional Quantity Surveyor or Private Practice Quantity Surveyor they are broadly concerned with contracts and costs on construction projects. The methods employed, however, cover a range of activities which may include cost planning, value management, feasibility studies, cost benefit analysis, lifecycle costing, tendering, valuation, change control, dispute resolution and cost estimation.”
As defined by www.prospects.ac.uk, “A quantity surveyor manages all costs relating to building projects, from the initial calculations to the final figures. Surveyors seek to minimise 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 to. A quantity surveyor may work for either the client or the contractor, working in an office or on site. The title of the job may also be referred to as a construction cost consultant or commercial manager.”
