QS Perth offers the full range of Quantity Surveying services, specialising in small to medium sized projects

QS Perth brings its combined people and technology power to bear on each of its client engagements. We use the latest software to provide our clients with highly accurate, fast, and cost effective reports. Our software can import engineering and architectural drawings to produce detailed and accurate measurements. We have also developed a comprehensive database to price and benchmark the costs of projects across a wide range of market sectors.

Our services can be viewed in line with the various project phases, being:

Pre Construction Phase

  • Cost Planning: we believe that effective cost planning should be undertaken at the very outset of every project to assist both the client and consultant team through the challenge of important design and specification decisions to provide the best possible value outcome.
  • Detailed Estimates and Cost Advice: during the design development stage is essential to enable both the client and design team to evaluate choice.
  • Bills of Quantity: embracing the latest CostX™ measurement technologies we are able to produce detailed documentation enabling accurate and rapid tendering. We believe that the initial capital outlay of BQ production is a wise investment choice enabling cross checking of documentation prior to tender and as a method of valuing change and for the assessment of interim payments during construction.
  • Building Services: an ever increasing area of project cost and complexity. In-house estimating expertise is available to assist with all but the most complex installations.
  • Value Management Advice: we will always strive to suggest a more cost effective alternative solution.
  • Material Selection: advice and general buildability issues.
  • Tenderer Selection: general advice and guidance. Review of tenders received, reconciliation to budget and recommendations.
  • Design Meetings: attendance and full participation.

Construction Phase

  • Review Progress Claims: thorough examination for work in progress and recommendation for payment values.
  • Regular Financial Statements: issued during construction forecasting final end cost.
  • Change Management: measurement, pricing and negotiation of variations.
  • Cost Management: we maintain control by careful examination of contractors claims, assessing and negotiating and monitoring against project contingency and providing advice to client of anticipated change.

Post Construction Phase

  • Final Account Preparation: we will provide adequate resource to structure the agreement.
  • Attending Meetings: we can represent the commercial interests of the client.
