The Quantity Surveying BSc(Hons) course at Huddersfield looks at the latest surveying practice, both in the UK and internationally. The course focuses particularly on the role of Quantity Surveyor, aiming to give you the skills and experience to find employment in the global construction industry. Quantity Surveyors can take on a number of roles in the construction industry. Managing costs and value during design and construction, managing construction contracts, advising on procurement, managing risks and quantifying construction work. This course gives you the chance to develop the skills you need to work in construction teams, applying the latest processes and technologies. Two crucial tools for today’s Quantity Surveyor are Lean Construction and Building Information Modelling (BIM). Our course will give you the chance to explore both areas and understand their relevance to construction. Lean Construction focuses on delivering minimum cost and maximum value for a construction project, looking at how the process of design, construction and end-use of a building is managed. Building Information Modelling is used to enhance Lean Construction, giving surveyors tools to manage the costs of materials and labour in projects. On the course you’ll be able to explore both areas to understand how you could deliver better value for clients, wherever your career may take you.
