Quantity Surveying and Estimation

Quantity surveying is a field within construction where construction costs are estimated and managed. The Quantity Surveyor (QS), a Construction Economist or Cost Manager, is among a group of expert counselors in the construction industry. As a Quantity Surveyor, you will seek to minimize the cost and risk of a construction project and enhance value for money, while still achieving the required legal standards and quality. Also, learn to identify the client’s needs and estimate the cost and scales of materials.

Dynatech aims to provide professionals with a comprehensive understanding of quantity surveying and cost estimation principles specifically tailored to civil engineering projects. It will cover essential techniques and methodologies for accurately estimating project costs, managing budgets, and ensuring the successful execution of construction projects.
