Want to join a team of construction professionals to see the realisation of commercial or residential construction projects?

Quantity Surveyors can budget, price, and financially administer construction projects. Typical roles include Consultants, Estimators, Contract Administrators, and Contract Managers. With experience, quantity surveying can lead into the fields of project management, commercial management, and dispute resolution.

Construction Management focuses less on financial management, and more on planning and managing time, resources, quality and health and safety.

Both Quantity Surveying and Construction Management professions are typically office-based and involve working with other project stakeholders such as clients, architects, engineers and other consultants, and local authorities.

This qualification is suitable for candidates from a variety of educational backgrounds including school leavers. It has been developed in consultation with employers and industrial, academic and professional bodies to ensure graduates are highly competent and industry-ready. 

Please note that this new qualification will be phased in so that existing students who have completed the first year of the National Diploma in Construction Management or Quantity Surveying will continue on with the second year of the same. Please contact us if you would like to discuss your study situation. Email david.finnie@op.ac.nz 

At our Auckland International Campus, this programme is offered by Future Skills Academy due to a sub-contract arrangement with Otago Polytechnic.
