Quantity Surveyor

A Quantity Surveyor is a building industry professional who specialises in estimating the value of construction works.

Expert Witness

Our extensive knowledge of construction costs and the workings of the construction industry, provide us with an excellent background to offer cost opinions in relation to building disputes.

Insurance Valuations

ACP Quantity Surveyors can prepare Insurance Replacement Valuations that ensure that the sum a building is insured for is adequate at all times to replace the building. 

Project Auditing

The provision of project auditing and risk analysis services to Financial Institutions is one of the core skills upon which our practice was founded.

Council DA Estimates

As part of our estimating service we are able to provide ‘Registered Quantity Surveyor’s Cost Reports’. These estimates are frequently being required by local government councils in NSW as part of the development application for new construction.

Construction Estimates

As specialists in construction estimating we offer accurate costings during all stages of the design and construct process.

Real Results for Real People

In order to demonstrate the deductions that we have achieved for our past clients we have included case studies based on a number of real projects.

With recent legislative changes it now more than ever critical that you obtain professional advice from ACP Quantity Surveyors.
