QUANTITY SURVEYING (GDQS)

Quantity Surveying as a professional function in


construction and civil works projects has been slow
to receive recognition in India. However, larger size
of projects, tight work schedules and more
competitive rates has brought quantity surveying to
the forefront. This is a function that combines within
itself the elements of Civil Engineering, Economics,
Finance, Material Sciences, Statistics, Valuation,
Management etc. Now, the performance of almost
the entire function has been computerised.
Accordingly the GDQS has been designed as an inter-
disciplinary Programme that builds upon all the
aforesaid disciplines.
OBJECTIVE
Being a job oriented Programme, it equips graduates
to become site engineers and quantity surveyors with
government departments, MES, construction
companies and consultants.
Graduates of this Programme will have competency
in:
- Estimation of quantities, preparation of BOO
and submission of tenders.
- Building economics from conceptual stage till
completion.
- Post-contract functions, monthly valuations and
project variance reports.
- Identification of claims and extra items of work
at sites.

Construction is engineering and management in action. The activity is performed by the skilful application
of human effort to create designs and to convert them into physical facilities through organisational inputs.
Construction projects are becoming large in volume and complex in design. The demands of economy,
accuracy, quality and timely completion of projects is the essence of contract management. Use of new
building materials, mechanised operations, sophisticated plant and instrumentation and superior construction
