The Quantity Surveyor ensures that the client is not overcharged by the contractor, assists in budgeting and expenditure, and sees to it that specifications and contract clauses are followed throughout the project. Hence, by hiring a quantity surveyor to manage a building project, a client can have peace of mind knowing that a professional will keep the costs within budget, and complete the project on time. Without a cost engineer, the client will not be able to save money or complete a project within budget.

Valuation and payment disputes between the client and contractor often arise in the construction phase, and these can be professionally handled by a quantity surveyor. Payment will not be released to the contractor until the Architect has certified the work done. This leads us to another aspect of the construction estimating profession. Construction Estimators work as part of a team, involving the Architect, Consulting Engineers, Client and Contractor. In this regard, the QS enjoys liaising with members of the professional team, attending monthly site meetings, board meetings and frequent travelling. If your organization is managing projects around the country or state, you will get to visit many places, booking a lodge or hotel room for the duration of the site visit.
