Quantity Surveyor – SEH Commercial

SEH Commercial is a business with big ambitions. We have grown quickly from a start-up to circa £10m with support from our sister companies who are all part of One Group Construction (OGC). OGC is a vibrant, highly successful group of construction related businesses based in East Anglia but working throughout the UK.

Our commercial fenestration business, SEH Commercial, now needs to build an in-house commercial team to manage the financial and commercial aspects of the whole company. This is a wonderful opportunity to be part of a growing business with the support of a very strong Group with experts in every field just a phone call away.

The role is based in Ipswich but will involve strong connections with sites to ensure that opportunities and pitfalls are identified early and commercial support is always available for our site teams.

Currently, the majority of the commercial management of our contracts is provided by external QS consultants. We have now out grown that model so it’s time to take control. We need a QS to be part of the team which provides that strong in-house capability to the business. 

Main Duties:

  • Ensure compliance with quality, safety and environmental objectives
  • Review of Pre-Tender and Post secured contract client documentation.
  • On-site measurement and measurement of drawings as required
  • Identifying potential risks and evaluate options for control
  • On-going cost analysis of maintenance and repair work
  • Assist with tenders/estimates
  • Analysing sub-contractors quotations 
  • Preparation and agreeing variation accounts
  • Preparation and agreeing of interim valuations and final accounts
  • Prepare and issue certification for contract payments to sub-contractors
  • Providing evidence for resolution of disputes
  • Ensure all work complies with quality, safety and environmental policies and the requirements of the company procedure
