Quantity Surveying is a unique occupation and profession. Quantity surveyors give advices on the cost matters related to building/civil engineering contracts and act as accountants to the projects either during pre-contract or post-contract stages. They are also professionals with expert knowledge on contracts, and can therefore recommend appropriate procurement methods, prepare contract documents, evaluate contractual claims, etc.

Quantity surveyors can involve in building works, building services engineering works, civil engineering works and industrial engineering works. They work closely with architects, financiers, engineers, contractors, suppliers, project owners, accountants, insurance underwriters, solicitors and with all levels of government authorities.
