Quantity Surveyors

Duncan Lewis Business Immigration Solicitors - 

Quantity Surveyors – UK Visa Applications


The building boom in the UK is extending across both commercial and residential sectors, fuelling a rise in demand for Senior Quantity Surveyors as well as Graduate Quantity Surveyors.


UK construction firms may find they have to draw from a global pool of talent to fulfil recruit targets – and yet restrictions on Skilled Worker (formerly known as Tier 2) visas under UK immigration law may jeopardise the international recruitment of quantity surveyors to work in the UK.


The skills gap in the UK labour market can also result in a need to recruit high-calibre candidates from abroad – and Duncan Lewis business immigration solicitors can advise companies on overseas recruitment of quantity surveyors, who are eligible to work in the UK under the regulations covering occupations skilled to NQF Level 6.


Duncan Lewis business immigration lawyers frequently advise companies wishing to recruit quantity surveyors from overseas on Skilled Worker (formerly known as Tier 2) applications – as well as advising on recruiting recent overseas graduates who have qualified as quantity surveyors in the UK and wish to take up an appointment after graduating.


Any Skilled Worker (formerly known as Tier 2) applicants can be sponsored for jobs in certain occupations – and the government has drawn up a list of eligible occupations for quantity surveyors wishing to apply for a Skilled Worker (formerly known as Tier 2) visa to take up a position in the UK.


UK Visas & Immigration regulations set out in the Codes of Practice for Skilled Workers such as quantity surveyors


UK Visas & Immigration rules also set out the duties a quantity surveyor might undertake to qualify for a Skilled Worker (formerly known as Tier 2) visa, including:


  • liaises with client on project costs, formulates detailed cost plan and advises contractors and engineers to ensure that they remain within cost limit
  • examines plans and specifications and prepares details of the material and labour required for the project
  • prepares bills of quantities for use by contractors when tendering for work
  • examines tenders received, advises client on the most acceptable and assists with preparation of a contract document
  • measures and values work in progress and examines any deviations from original contract
  • measures and values completed contract for authorisation of payment.
