Study Notes

Quantity Surveying Objectives

  • The main objective of quantity surveying is to control and manage the cost of a construction project from inception to completion.

Cost Estimation

  • The purpose of a preliminary cost estimate is to provide an initial rough estimate of the project cost, helping clients and stakeholders make informed decisions about project feasibility.

Information Provided by Quantity Surveying

  • Quantity surveying provides information on the cost, quantity, and quality of materials, labor, and equipment required for a construction project.

Order of Magnitude Cost Estimate

  • An order of magnitude cost estimate provides a rough estimate of the project cost, typically within a range of -25% to +75%, to help clients and stakeholders make initial decisions about project viability.

Classification of Cost Estimate

  • The classification of cost estimate aims to assist in assessing the accuracy and reliability of the estimate, with different classifications (e.g., rough order of magnitude, semi-detailed, detailed) indicating varying levels of precision and reliability.
