Quantity surveyors are responsible for ensuring that building projects meet good legal and quality standards and making sure clients get their money's worth by carefully monitoring a construction project from the initial design stages through to the building's completion and sometimes even the costs incurred through maintenance, once the building is up and running.
Quantity surveyors work on a range of projects including residential homes, industrial sites, commercial development and transport networks, ensuring the projects meet the required legal and quality standards. Newly qualified quantity surveyors in UK could expect to earn from £18,000 to £20,000 a year equivalent to Rs. 1.5 to 2 million a year in Sri Lankan currency. With chartered status and significant experience, this can rise to £45,000 with senior surveyors earning as much as £80,000.
Being a successful quantity surveyor requires a certain level of expertise as having an excellent understanding of construction methods and materials, the ability to manage finances, high level of IT competency, excellent math skills, expert attention to detail, a creative approach to problem solving, an organized and methodical approach to tasks, excellent communication skills - both written and verbal, exceptional negotiation abilities, ability to work effectively as part of a team, ability to write reports and manage databases, impressive interpersonal skills, a willingness and ability to relate to lots of different people, ability to stay calm as deadlines approach and a commitment to the job and a willingness to work long hours - and BCAS would be the ultimate choice for a student to acquire the "Incredible Skills Set" to become a successful quantity surveyor .
To be precise BCAS is the pioneer in introducing the BTEC HND qualification in Quantity Surveying in Sri Lanka. BTEC Certificate is awarded by EDEXEL at BCAS and they have been regularly monitoring our UK standard performance from the time BCAS were conducting the quantity surveying courses. Another unique feature about BCAS is EDEXEL's highest regard for the college with the award of the "Best Center" status in Sri Lanka for BCAS. As such they inspect BCAS only once a year whereas all other course providers are inspected twice a year. This fact alone is testimony to our privileged rank in the world of international education.
