Residential Quantity Surveyor

Few builders look forward to the pricing work required at the start of a project and are usually delighted once it is over and the project is given the green light to commence. However, those that are fortunate enough to afford an on-staff residential quantity surveyor will appreciate that while the tendering process is important, the up-front work required to secure the work is the first small step toward a profitable outcome.

How A Residential Quantity Surveyor Can Help

At Red Quantity Surveying, we are just-in-time contractors that deliver unrivalled quantity surveyor services throughout New Zealand and Australia. We know that having an effective and useful road map is crucial in terms of successfully navigating the various stages of construction and have in-depth knowledge in terms of how to create one for any project and how to help guide our clients toward successfully completed projects that keep stress to a minimum and lead to happy homeowners.

Our friendly and approachable staff is partnered with a number of key industry bodies and our key differential point is the fact that we deliver our builders' ongoing education and support so that they can take the lessons learned from their experiences with our professionals and put them into practice to great effect on future projects.

Our Quantity Surveyors Deliver Results

Here at Red Quantity Surveying, we are fully aware of the mindset that often prevails in the construction industry that a lost tender bid is down to the work that the quantity surveyor completed. However, just because you employ or retain the services of a freelance residential quantity surveyor does not mean that you will always get the job.

You know better than anyone else that there is always a long list of competitors vying for the same project. The reality is that while you have found efficiencies in your work methods, theirs may be completely different and as a result come in that little bit cheaper.

What’s more, while clients don’t always choose the cheapest bid on the table simply because one builder is a more adept negotiator than the others, there are plenty of bids that win, priced at astounding low rates only because they missed out on a lot of items that will ultimately eat away their profits once the project is underway.

On those jobs that you are successful, the presence of a quantity surveyor during your pricing efforts puts you in a strong position to profit. For example, if you undertook a repairs or renovations job, rest assured that an experienced QS will have taken into consideration all of the extra costs, onsite and offsite, and will have considered how the builder needs to go about working within the existing structure.

We have gained considerable practical knowledge working alongside builders, engineers and geo-techs, and this affords us the capabilities to create detailed pricing reports that insurers are happy to sign off on, and that factor in enough money for you, the builder, to comfortably complete the work, having taken all possible contingencies into consideration.
