Our second article provides some really useful guidance for anyone pricing, estimating or quoting work. As you may have seen in the news recently, with trimmed margins in a high-pressure industry, misquoting a job can have serious consequences for your business. Ensuring that you apply some standard quantity surveying techniques, and a dash of good old common sense, should hopefully help you avoid pricing pitfalls. Not every job will require you to engage a quantity surveyor, but it might be useful to keep up-to-date with their professional techniques to make sure you stay on the right side of accuracy and efficiency.
