quantity surveyors examining plans

Quantity Surveying

Students studying quantity surveying at Wintec will learn the practical skills for quantity surveying, which includes estimating and feasibility, quantification, pricing, and financial administration of a project during construction. 

Quantity surveyors calculate a budget based on client requirements, then prepare detailed estimates for each stage of construction as the project develops. The role includes studying building plans, measuring and estimating material and labour costs, preparing feasibility studies, managing payments for contractors and suppliers and offering financial advice to clients.

About the faculty

Our Centre for Engineering and Industrial Design focuses on flexible, student-centred and project-based learning. Students get the chance to put their skills into practice by getting involved in industry projects that take place in real workplaces. 

Our ultra-modern $25 million state-of-the-art engineering and trades facility opened at our Rotokauri campus in early 2014. The facility provides our engineering students with an opportunity to learn in an environment that better reflects industry standards and uses the latest techniques, technologies and equipment.

Meanwhile, we’re working with industry to provide 'real-world’ research solutions to real-world industry challenges. For example, we recently acquired New Zealand’s first ultra-high definition, mass production, liquid resin 3D printer. With it, we’re working with companies to radically improve the way they think about and perform industrial design. In less than 24 hours, we can take a customer’s prototype drawing, translate it into a computer model, print it and deliver it into their hands.
