Quantity Surveyors are a team of professional advisors to the construction industry.
As advisors they estimate and monitor construction costs, from the feasibility stage of a project through to completion of the construction period.

At feasibility stage, quantity surveyors use their knowledge of construction methods and costs to advise the owner on the most economical way of achieving their requirements.
During design the quantity surveyor ensures that the design remains on budget through Cost Management and Cost Planning. We are local to the Sunshine Coast and use our local knowledge to manage this efficiently.
During Construction the quantity surveyors value progress payments at regular intervals. They also value changes to design or quantities which may arise by reference to the tended Bill of Quantity rates. On completion they may be involved with tax depreciation schedules, replacement cost estimation for insurance purposes.

Your QS (Quantity Surveyor) is well placed to provide an independent and impartial role on cost issues. Building contracts always commence amicably, but sometimes degenerate into litigious battles to address the perceived rights and wrongs of the contract, especially when it comes to variations on large projects.
The involvement of an independent and impartial QS often enhances the willingness of all parties involved to make it work.Expert Witness Construction Disputes

Our fees are tax deductible as an expense and a receipt is included with your report.
The current tax legislation permits a building write-off allowance. In addition, owners will be eligible to depreciate the furniture, fittings and plant within their property, as well as their share of the common property. Claiming this Tax Allowance may significantly enhance the after tax return on a property. Both the first and subsequent owners of a property may claim Tax allowances. The owners' accountant may further be entitled to adjust the past 4 years' tax returns in lieu of unclaimed allowances. We service the entire Sunshine Coast and surrounding areas.
