Course details

Summary

Quantity surveyors manage the finances of construction projects. A working day could include liaising with clients, industry professionals and site workers; measuring quantities of materials; estimating; preparing claims, cash flows and construction programmes and much more.

Students in this programme will learn the practical skills for quantity surveying, which includes estimating and feasibility, quantification, pricing, and financial administration of a project during construction. With experience, students will be able to extend their work to include larger and more complex building projects and carry out tasks related to cost planning and financial control.

Hands On Training

Studying quantity surveying isn’t all textbooks and theory. Students will talk to experienced site managers on commercial and residential construction sites. They will also get to create a structural scale model of a residential building in order to interpret and apply current legislation.

In the first year students will work on a project that will include measuring up and pricing the components of an actual house, and in the second year students will do the same with a commercial building.

Career Opportunities

The New Zealand Diploma in Construction (Level 6) - Quantity Surveying strand may lead to specialist employment opportunities, such as a Quantity Surveyor, Building Estimator, Property Consultant or Cost Engineer.
