During the course of a construction project, one of the most important professionals is the quantity surveyor. Quantity Surveyors are responsible for and also contribute actively to a number of different facets of the project, starting from the planning stage, through to procurement, execution and post completion stages.
Quantity surveyors are responsible for budgeting, costing, progress payments, cost control, measurement of work and project close-out. They must, therefore, have excellent knowledge of construction processes, materials, construction contracts, as well as of project and construction management. They must also be able to interact effectively with other professionals in these fields, as well as with clients, meaning that supervisory skills such as interpersonal communication, negotiation, problem solving, decision making is an important part of the job.
