Quantity surveyors manage all costs relating to building and civil engineering projects, from the initial calculations to the final figures. They are specialised accountants for the construction industry, aiming to minimise costs and enhance value for money, delivering projects to the required quality and on time. You will need strong financial skills, and the ability to negotiate and develop relationships with suppliers.
Our accredited course is designed for those who want to be the centre of the management of construction procurement process. If you think logically, enjoy using your own initiative, are interested in financial matters, like dealing with people and want to work in and out of the office, then this is the course for you.
