Solutions are Always in the Context
What is a Quantus Solution?
Our founder, Daniel Roberts believes that Quantity Surveying is the most exciting profession ever! This is because he understands quality. Quality lasts over time, we are all too familiar that we live in a perishable society, where possessions physical and unfortunately relationships (irreplaceable) are disposable at best and defective at worst!
This attitude has driven every aspect of society and the planet to the limits. We have to look to history to find a solution. Quantus Solutions provide traditional Professional Quantity Surveying services for a 2020 world and generations beyond.
The Quantity Surveying profession is independent and sound and has roots that go back to 1666. In 1666 there was a "Great" fire in London. It was named Great for a reason, not only in scale, it was marked a positive end to negative period of history. There was tremendous discord so significant that there are no records of the total number of deaths, the destruction of property was in the order of $3bn in equivalent times.
In the years that processed the Great Fire of London the city had to begin the process of rebuilding almost the whole of the commercial center within the old Roman walls. But as well as new buildings, improvements in hygiene and wider streets, the following year 1667, something else sprang up from the ashes, the world’s first insurance company and like a pheonix rising from the ashes, the Quantity Surveying profession was born! Honest professionals were required out of crisis to assess, quantify, measure buildings and rebuild.
Quantus Solutions is founded on sound principles as they relate to the building and construction industry. Daniel Roberts is a Chartered Quantity Surveyor holds the required academic and practical experience to perform his duties and obligations. These minimum requirements were laid out as part of an APC training and interview with a panel of Chartered members of the RICS. The essential standard for membership was laid out by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and a framework of core, pathway specific (quantity surveying) and selective modules were selected for review.
Just like any professional, lawyer, doctor or medical practitioner, working within sound pre defined frameworks of competency, these are laid out to help individuals focus their priorities and training through continual monitoring over many years and practicing their newly developed skills in the real world, on live projects.
Becoming Chartered does not provide automatic entitlement to employment, contracts or opportunities. Nor is it a golden ticket for financial, individual freedom or a passport to happiness. It is the recognition of a minimum and essential standard to demonstrate that the individual has obtained a minimum grade and standard for ethics, training and experience. Becoming a Chartered Surveyor is the highest standard for professionals within the construction industry and if you apply yourself, focus, take the time and have the opportunity to gain the right experience, anyone can meet the minimum standard for the highest qualification. Chartered Surveyors are not better than anyone, they have just obtained more experience and receive the recognition for same. If you follow the path, you shall obtain the same results/recognition.
Chartered Surveyors are the "Gold Standard" for the construction industry, this is because the requirements are very high and standards are without comparison, if you aim high, you obtain high results. If you fail to aim, you get mediocre results. The requirements of the RICS have deep and meaningful roots that has stood the test of time (since 1868) and shall continue to proceed the present and future generations.
The capacity for Chartered Surveyors to professionally and ethically implement and consistently deliver complicated tasks with skill, accuracy and completeness is a fundamental and common foundation for all members. Similar standards exist within other areas of expertise and across industries such as the Chartered Institute of Accountants and the Institute of Engineers.
Within individuals areas of expertise, success is inevitable and predictable, not because of the talents and skills of the individual (although natural talents play a part) but due to the pre-existing framework of knowledge and experience that is required to perform that task.
If you were to take a doctor and place him into a role where he has no experience such as engineering, even if he has the capacity to learn and is intelligent and willing to do the work, he shall not perform his duties as an engineer until he has the minimum requirements of education, training and experience. Put the same doctor back into a medical environment and he shall excel at the tasks he is suitably qualified to perform.
