What’s is a quantity surveyor

LA Quantity Surveyor is a construction economist in a team of professional consultants and has the function of co-ordinating the cost of construction projects. He scientifically plans, evaluates and controls expenditure on construction projects of all types..

A Quantity Surveyor may be consulted about a proposed project before it is planned, in which case, he determines its commercial viability and prepares a report stating his findings and recommendations. If it is a commercial project, for example, a shopping centre which is greatly influenced by a good return on investment, then the Quantity Surveyor's report is very critical on the decision whether to carry out the project or not to. The report does not carry the same weight with non-commercial projects, for example, schools, houses and other community oriented projects..

If a Quantity Surveyor is appointed at the same time as an Architect when a project is envisaged, he acts in an advisory capacity during the planning stages of the project. not only does he give advice concerning the cost problems during the designing stages of the building, but he is also able to prepare cost estimates at various stages of the planning. The project is thus kept within the financial limits stipulated by the client at the outset of the project.
