The term quantity surveyor derives from the role taken in quantifying the various items of labour and material that it takes to construct a given project.
Quantity surveyors use their skills to determine the cost of building work ranging from residential properties through to assessing the construction value of new multi-million dollar office towers. Additionally they are used on civil, mining and infrastructure projects to determine the cost of such facilities.
Quantity Surveyors are involved at various stages of the construction process, typically prior to construction, during construction and following completion of the works.
