Quantity Surveying


The quantity surveying sector in South Africa consisted of 2,236 registered professional quantity surveyors and 2,303 registered candidate quantity surveyors in 2018. A subdued macro-economic environment, the weak rand and the country's troubled construction industry, which the quantity surveying sector relies on, caused the sector to contract in 2018. The number of practising salaried quantity surveyors with more than 10 years' experience declined from 28.2% of all practising surveyors to 21.4% in 2018.


High Demand


Quantity surveyors are in high demand in South Africa and the Department of Home Affairs has invited foreign applicants who qualify to apply for the critical skills visa to the gap. The majority of quantity surveyors are employed in the consulting engineering sector, in listed civil engineering construction firms (contractors) and quantity surveying professional consulting firms.
