QS Advisor Ltd aims to provide a cost-effective Quantity Surveying service for principal and IMG_7391specialist contractors and private clients.

QS Advisor Limited is a Chartered Building Consultancy (CBC), which is regulated by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).  Meet Grant, the founder and director of QS Advisor…

First of all, how did you first get into Quantity Surveying?

My father is a Quantity Surveyor, so I always knew of the profession. When I went to college, I studied Civil Engineering and went on to gain my BSc (Hons) Construction Management at University.

What qualifications do you have with Quantity Surveying?

On top of my degree,  I have also obtained Fellow status with The Chartered Institute of Building (FCIOB). QS Advisor is also a Chartered Building Consultancy (CBC) from the institute.

What previous experience do you have?

In my 15 years in the industry, I have worked for both specialist contractors and main contractors. Working mainly on commercial, retail, education, healthcare & social housing. I have always worked in the capacity of a Quantity Surveyor, from assistant QS at the early days up to a Senior QS Position in David H Allan, Wates & Keepmoat

Why did you decide to set up your own business?

Over the years I started to understand that there was a niche for freelance Quantity Surveyors and especially for someone who could adapt as an additional resource when companies have an increase in projects wins and need further resource on a temporary basis. I  also started to find a unique niche with the smaller contractor, who would benefit from the advice and assistance of a QS, but who didn’t necessarily have the finance/budget for a full time in-house Quantity Surveyor.

What is the aim of QS Advisor?

The aim is to assist and educate the smaller contractor in the commercial ways of the industry and to assist bigger organisations with additional resource when and where required.

What makes QS Advisor different from other businesses in a similar field?

I work with clients from the very first meeting to the very last. No juniors or members of staff – I work directly with each and every client. For me personally, our values are about trust and providing the same level of service that I would expect.
