Quantity surveying remains TTS’s core business and we still boast one of the largest quantity surveying teams in the Middle East. Each TTS quantity surveyor has qualifications from either Europe, USA, South Africa or Asia and has an excellent foundation in the core skills of a QS, making our capabilities vastly superior to the competition.
TTS adapts its service, to suit the best needs and requirements of its clients, by embracing modern technologies, changing approaches and implementing fast-track criteria as necessary.
TTS’s pre-contract services begin from the first estimate of construction cost, often based on minimum information, through value engineering the cost plans to production of bills of quantities against the finalised design. This is followed by negotiation and agreement of the construction cost with the successful construction companies tendering for the work resulting in the compilation and signing of the contract documents. Of course, these methods can be adapted should the needs of the client point towards a fast track project.
TTS’s post-contract services include valuation of the construction progress made and recommending interim payments. In addition we provide accurate cost management throughout the project, by assessing the veracity and magnitude of Contractor’s submitted variations and claims for additional costs, which then enables us to give relevant and clear projections of the client’s total expenditure and exposure.
TTS, with the benefit of our experience and historical data, gives comfort to the client that they are being well represented and defended against the Contractor’s entitlements and claims when agreeing final account
