Building Quantity Surveyor – Questions to Ask


Any successful relationship is built on asking the right questions….

When you’re building your home, a professional quantity surveyor can help you save thousands. However, many people aren’t always sure about what to ask, so here are a few to get you started.

What are your qualifications?

Quantity surveyors work in the building industry, which covers a wide range of fields. You will want to know what your quantity surveyor’s qualifications are, as well how much experience they have in the industry.

As a team, Newin has 10+ years of experience working in the construction industry and regularly work with leading architects, builders, and developers in Australia and New Zealand. Team members at Newin have been working as qualified quantity surveyors for over 18 years.


Can you provide timelines as well as cost estimates?


Of course, you want your project to be both on time and under budget. Newin provides a comprehensive construction program alongside the cost estimate. The document is prepared by an experienced Construction Project Manage who carefully examines the project documents to come up with an accurate timeline.


Do you have samples I can review?


You’ll always feel more comfortable working with a quantity surveyor when you can review the type of quality you can expect. Samples from an actual project will give you a great preview of the detail and commitment to excellence they put into every job.


What guarantees do you have in place?


The building industry is prone to market shifts, so there is no feasible way to offer a guarantee over the cost estimate supplied. However, the experience and expertise you receive from our quantity surveyor service will closely match the current market for the building industry.

If you would like to save thousands on your next construction project or new home, give Newin a call today to discuss your quantity surveyor needs.
