3 reasons why a Quantity Surveyor should be more than an abacus

Trusted numbers AND valued insights

A cost plan report which accurately estimates your project cost relies on team expertise and process quality. Using the report to help realise an on-budget project is the cost planning process.  It is the quality of the insights through this process which makes the difference. The insight skills of your quantity surveying partner are honed and embedded over time.

Adding value - no matter the project size

The cost of a project is the sum of its component parts. A truism which applies to projects both big and small. It helps explain the cost of a project and help identify opportunities to achieve budget while maintaining the integrity of the design.

Team quality makes the difference

A great team is more than assembling the right skill sets, it is their focus on a common goal, i.e. your goal. They need to ask how they can best contribute to project success  and make a positive difference, from the first phone call until the final certificate is issued.
