Quantity surveyors are responsible for managing all aspects of the contractual and financial side of construction projects. Quantity surveyors manage the costs on a construction project. They help to ensure that the construction project is completed within its projected budget.
A Quantity Surveyor, or a Surveyor, manages the cost of construction projects. Their duties include determining client needs, calculating costs and timelines and monitoring construction progress.
