Welcome to hartQS, Chartered Quantity Surveyors.

We offer a full range of Pre and Post Contract Quantity Surveying services for construction projects including refurbishments, alterations and new build. We work on small to medium building projects, within the value range £100,000 to £4 million.
We are regulated by RICS (The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) and abide by their codes of practice.
Why use a Quantity Surveyor?
Quantity Surveyors (QS) are also known as construction cost consultants. When you engage a Chartered QS on a building project you are able to utilise the training and experience of a regulated professional to aid and guide you throughout the often confusing construction process.
As professional quantity surveyors we are instructed by the client to work on their behalf in the design team, often incorporating architect / contract administrator, structural engineer and other consultants. We are able to advise and guide the client throughout the pre-construction and construction phases of the project, therefore helping to control costs and minimise risk. We also advise the design team on specialist matters including estimating costs, procurement, producing tender documentation, contractual matters, material and build choices, valuing post-contract changes and negotiations with the contractor.
