Quantity surveyors are responsible for managing all aspects of the contractual and financial side of construction projects. For the past few years, quantity surveying graduates have been in demand with employers. Quantity surveyors manage the costs on a construction project.
Prior to any construction work beginning, one of the roles of the Quantity Surveyor (QS) is to measure the proposed works and produce a Bill of Quantities (BQ), an itemised document breaking down costs of building materials, plant and labour.
The magnetic locators are tools used by the quantity surveyors to locate land survey markers, survey monuments as well as ductile iron water lines. They are also referred to as locating wands and have very high standards when it comes to both reliability and dependability.
