“I make the sustainable commercial relationships happen, that are the magic behind, clean water appearing whenever the tap is turned – that is why my job is so rewarding”
Nicole Cuerden, Quantity Surveyor
Having qualified as a Mechanical Engineer, I quickly realised that my strengths lay in the commercial arena, so with support from MWH Treatment I changed my career path and gained a first class honours in Quantity Surveying. To be a great Quantity Surveyor you need to have plenty of empathy, be able to create mutually beneficial commercial relationships, and have the excellent communication and negotiation skills required.
As a Quantity Surveyor I manage all the contractual and financial aspects of a construction project, reducing risk and adding value. I evaluate and appoint our subcontractors, ensuring they have the required technical competency, organisational capacity and behaviours we require to make our projects outstanding. Placing packages of work with those best able to deliver them, bit by bit, it all comes together to produce the outcome we have set out to achieve. For me the joy comes from getting to know the subcontractors and developing open, honest and collaborative relationships with them all, that’s what breeds real project success.
