Our function as quantity surveyors (also recognized as cost consultants or commercial managers and construction economists) is essential both in the pre-Contract and post-Contract stages.
Pre-Contract Quantity Surveyor
Our role in the preparation of tender/contract documents is to facilitate the administration of projects by providing accurate bills of quantities based on quantities of work in accordance to the published Standard Method of Measurement (SMM), as well as the tailoring of comprehensive, balanced Contract Conditions.
Our extensive knowledge of the Middle East market has led to a highly developed database, allowing us to account for territory specific costs and prices of work, labour, materials and plant in addition to implications of design that are relevant to the Middle Eastern legal and geographical environment.
Methods used include cost planning, value engineering, feasibility studies, cost benefit analysis, lifecycle costing, valuation, and cost estimation.
Post-Contract Quantity Surveyor
Our role in the post Contract stage is to ensure accurate measurement and pricing of construction work in order to comply with the Contract in addition to tracking changes requested by the owner or his architect/engineer.
Our knowledge in various type of projects in the Middle East helps us understand the needs of Owners/Contractors. Apart from accurately recording day to day project running, managing settlement of variations, and certification of interim payments, CONSSULT also manages sub-contract formation, forecasting of costs and values of the project, cash flow forecasts and the determination of final accounts.
