What is a Quantity Surveyor?
A quantity surveyor (QS) is a professional person working within the construction industry. The role of the quantity surveyor, in general terms, is to manage and control contracts and costs within construction projects. This involves the deployment of an extensive set of skills acquired through specialised formal education, specific training and experience.
The profession developed during the 19th century from the earlier “measurer”, a specialist tradesman (often a guild member), who prepared standardised schedules for a building project in which all of the construction materials, labour activities and the like were quantified, and against which competing builders could submit priced tenders. Because all tenders were based on the same schedule of information, they could be easily compared so as to identify the best one.
