Our simple answer to this question is as soon as possible!
Too often a Quantity Surveyor is only brought in when there is a crisis. If a QS is engaged early, then the crisis may be avoided altogether. When you engage a Quantity Surveyor in your project, you are getting a professional, and expert cost controller who understands the ins and outs of the industry, the market, and potential cost pit-falls to avoid.
Engaging with a QS early to understand how they can help is vital. It doesn’t necessarily mean any commitment at that stage but it is better to ask for advice earlier rather than find it is too late.
Often people start off their project without quantity surveying advice and it can make the project significantly harder. A good QS will be able to connect you with the right contractor for your project and will equip you with a Bill of Quantities.
Doing things on your own can mean taking the wrong route, unsuitable for your situation. Or worse, not being able to manage the timeline of your project or losing control of the budget.
Why not call a QS, worry less, sleep well and be content that your project is in good hands.
