An essential role of a quantity surveyor, cost planning provides a means of controlling the design process to meet the budgetary requirements of the client. It allows the quantity surveyor, with the design team, to design a building to a cost, rather than costing a design after it has been completed. The control of costs can only be achieved through the actions of the whole project team, including the client. It is the role of the quantity surveyor, using cost planning techniques, to facilitate this and achieve the client's requirements within the agreed budget.
