What does a Quantity Surveyor do?
Quantity Surveyors in Civil Engineering (Civil Engineering Surveyors) are part of the Commercial Management team. Commercial Management is the process that deals with contractual and financial aspects of civil engineering projects. Quantity Surveyors are a crucial part of our site teams; they are construction professionals with a working knowledge of contracts, law, finance, economics, tendering and procurement.

What does a Civil Engineer do?
Civil Engineers are construction professionals who make up our site supervisory and management team. Most Civil Engineers work predominantly outdoors designing and building infrastructures such as bridges, roads, railways and tunnel, to name a few. They also ensure that work is completed to a high quality and on time. On a daily basis a Civil Engineer will provide instructions to our skilled workforce through the use of specialist setting out equipment, maintaining diaries of site activities and ensuring works are carried out safely to the Company’s Health & Safety and Environment procedures.

What does a Planning Engineer do?
Planning Engineers work within the site supervisory and management team and are responsible for ensuring the successful planning and organization of a project. They will analyse the plans and propose methods and options for completing the works on time and to budget. They work closely with the Project Manager and Quantity Surveyors to monitor the financials of the project and ensure that resources are appropriately allocated to achieve each stage of the project.

Whilst a Civil Engineer predominantly works outside, practically turning site plans into tangible structures, our Planning Engineers look at the engineering challenges theoretically and draws the engineering and commercial viabilities of the project together.
