Top Quantity Surveyor related questions

What should a quantity surveyor know?

A good quantity surveyor should have an in-depth knowledge of construction, good financial and management skills, excellent negotiation skills, and good communication & problem-solving skills. Also, they should be familiar with the building laws and guidelines applicable to your project. Usually, a local quantity surveyor will have a degree in surveying, construction, civil engineering, or structural engineering. 

What questions should I ask a quantity surveyor?

Some questions to ask a quantity surveyor include:

  • Can you tell me about your experience with projects like mine? (e.g. tight timelines, constructing a green building)
  • How do you communicate with other members of the team, like architects or engineers?
  • How do you deal with disputes?
  • Tell me about your leadership style.
  • What problems or issues do you anticipate with my project?

Is a quantity surveyor worth it?

For business owners who want to build more efficiently, hiring a senior quantity surveyor can result in a seamless construction process. They do this by making timetables, conducting feasibility studies, and taking charge of the valuation of works. A quantity surveyor may also help with surveys, planning applications, and insurance procedures. All of this can help you save money throughout your project.

Does a quantity surveyor need a licence?

It depends on where they plan to work. Usually, they’ll only need a degree in a course accredited by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). Then, they may need to gain a few years of experience before receiving professional accreditation or a licence. Some areas may require a licence before they can start working as a quantity surveyor in that locality. Lastly, they’ll need to pass a special test if they want to become a member of RICS.

How does a quantity surveyor differ from a contractor?

A contractor’s job consists of project planning, project management (including hiring individuals who’ll provide the equipment, materials, and services necessary), project monitoring, ensuring that legal guidelines are followed, and ensuring the health and safety of everyone involved. Meanwhile, a quantity surveyor’s main role is to cost the project and make sure it stays within budget. But, the surveyor may also do tasks like quality control, insurance assessment, and building surveys. 

Where can I find quantity surveyors near me?

You can find a local quantity surveyor through Airtasker. If you need a specific type of Tasker, such as a consultant quantity surveyor or a contract quantity surveyor, our platform can help you find one in minutes. As a general rule of thumb, it is recommended that you ask to see their accreditations - ideally, they should be a member of RICS (aka a chartered surveyor).

What do a quantity surveyor’s services include?

A quantity surveyor is your go-to expert in any construction project, especially if you want to keep things within budget, within the deadline, and aim to make the entire process as smooth as possible. As soon as you’ve hired an architect, you’ll want to hire a quantity surveyor to help you manage the building works. 

This is because the quantity surveyor can check if the architect’s design is feasible given your budget and timeline. Depending on the type of quantity surveyor you’ll be hiring and the project you have in the pipeline, you can expect them to do the following: 

Consultant quantity surveyor

A consultant quantity surveyor, also known as a professional quantity surveyor, is in charge of various costing activities and studies. They usually coordinate with the client, architect, and engineer to assess the designs and see if they are within budget - in terms of materials, labour, and equipment used. In general, their output may include:

  • Cost planning documents
  • Cost estimates
  • Timetables
  • Feasibility studies
  • Cost-benefit analyses
  • Lifecycle costing
  • Valuations
  • Dispute resolution
  • Tendering

A quantity surveyor’s role doesn’t end when the project starts - they’ll also continue monitoring the project and ensuring that each detail is being executed according to your budget, deadline, and plans. They’ll also see to it that your project is up to code and follows all necessary legal guidelines. 

Contractor quantity surveyor

A contractor’s quantity surveyor also handles many costing and pricing work but is limited to those performed by a contractor and subcontractors. This typically includes paying every labourer, supplier, and subcontractor on time.

If you are a contractor, hiring this type of surveyor can help you keep the project cost-efficient and in compliance with the local laws and regulations. 

Other duties of a quantity surveyor

While a quantity surveyor’s primary role is to manage building and construction costs, they may also take on other duties throughout a project. For example, they may perform building surveys, conduct pre-acquisition surveys, manage planning applications, and take charge of insurance assessments. They may also look into any defects and handle dilapidations negotiations. 

As quantity surveyors usually have an intimate knowledge of building practices, you could also ask them to take charge of quality control in your project. After all, you only want good, up-to-code quality from your local construction workers!   

When hiring a quantity surveyor, it’s a good idea to list down the roles you’d want them to take on - whether you want them to stick to managing building costs or if you want to tap into their legal and building expertise as well.
