Skills Framework - Quantity Surveyor

Overview

A quantity surveyor's role is important in working out exactly how much a house costs to construct. They will keep a close eye on finances - from the first budget to the final bill, while working both in an office and on site to conduct material and sub-contractor control reports. A clear emphasis is placed on calculating commercial risks, working closely with subcontractors and budgeting.
