Open Day Tōia Mai 2022
Our annual Open Day hosts people from around the Waikato region and beyond across our City and Rotokauri campuses.
Quantity surveyors manage the finances of construction projects. A working day could include liaising with clients, industry professionals and site workers; measuring quantities of materials; estimating; preparing claims, cash flows and construction programmes, and much more.
Students in this programme will learn the practical skills for quantity surveying, including estimating and feasibility, quantification, pricing, and financial administration of a project during construction. With experience, students will be able to extend their work to include larger and more complex building projects and carry out tasks related to cost planning and financial control.

Studying quantity surveying isn’t all textbooks and theory. Students will talk to experienced site managers on commercial and residential construction sites. They will also get to create a structural scale model of a residential building in order to interpret and apply current legislation.
In the first year, students will work on a project that will include measuring up and pricing the components of an actual house, and in the second year, students will do the same with a commercial building.
Wintec tutors are highly trained and qualified in their specialist fields. Close connections with the New Zealand Institute of Quantity Surveyors mean they are right up to date with what students need to know for future employment.
Students will be given opportunities for practical experience through project work, site visits, and investigations. Wintec has strong partnerships with industry leaders that bring valuable resources such as guest speakers, current skills, and knowledge.
The New Zealand Diploma in Construction (Level 6) - Quantity Surveying strand may lead to specialist employment opportunities, such as a quantity surveyor, building estimator, property consultant, or cost engineer.
