Our quantity surveying role is to be responsible for the cost of any residential or commercial project, from initial estimates and acquisition of materials to the final figures.
The primary objective is to maintain control of the project budget by seeking to minimise costs and deliver ‘value for money’ to our clients.
We understand that a potential client needs to find a surveyor who will be able to keep a constant eye on any variation to the contract, which affect costs, and analysis reports are created throughout.
At the same time, it is vital to ensure that all aspects of the project are compliant with statutory building regulations.
