Our Heritage

The founding Director of Quantex Qatar have had diverse and varied careers with solid grounding gained during the years of working for Davis Langdon. Neil has worked with many of the world’s leading developers and designers, on world class projects which has set the defining template for the creation of Quantex Qatar.

Through our commitment to client care, quality of service and a genuine passion for our projects, Quantex Qatar has an international mind-set whilst being uniquely local through the commitment of the Directors to the betterment and enhancement of the delivery of construction projects in Qatar.

We are a locally registered company who prides itself on the commitment to the State of Qatar and the Qatar National Vision 2030. With our local sponsor, we are independent in a world of ‘’multinational corporations’’, and it is our commitment to our clients to provide a first class cost management service which we believe can set us apart from our competitors.

Our Vision

To provide a reliable, innovative and collaborative Quantity Surveying, Cost and Project Management services that meet our client’s expectations in order to deliver successful construction projects in the State of Qatar.

Grade A Quantity Surveying & Cost Consultancy

Quantex Qatar is registered as a Grade A Quantity Surveying and Cost Consultancy Business with the Ministry of Municipality & Urban Planning’s Professional Engineers Committee.

Quantity Surveying

The analytical analysis and benchmark comparisons of building costs from feasibility estimates through to the settlement of Final Accounts on completed projects, to provide a dependable Quantity Surveying service which understands the design and engineering forms and functions to accurately predict the out-turn cost with certainty and conviction..

Feasibility Estimates

The analysis of site constraints, natural environment, urban planning constraints, cost parameters, program considerations and other essential factors prior to the commencement of any project. This allows developers to understand the potential out turn costs of the proposed development at an early concept stage in order to test viability

Cost Plans

The detailed, measured, analysis of the components of the building, fully priced to illustrate the cost of a building in sufficient detail to assist with the interrogation of the costs of elements of the design to ensure target budgets are maintained. As the design develops, the level of detail increases and so the level of refinement in pricing improves and enhances in order to meet out turn cost certainty.

Bills of Quantities

A comprehensive document containing a detailed measurement of every element and component of the building, laid out in an industry accepted structured format that adheres to the prescribed Standard Method of Measurement. The document ensures consistency of pricing by tenderers, permits a detailed analysis of the prices received, and delivers a comprehensive schedule of the rates and prices for the project for use during the construction stage of the project for interim valuations and variations.

Option Cost Appraisals

The process by which alternative proposals for the development are analysed from a financial perspective in order to facilitate informed decision making on different building materials, systems and techniques, with the operating cost considerations being compared to capital cost expenditure.

Cash Flow Forecasts

The analysis of the rate of expenditure of the cost of a development which assists with forecasting the monthly draw-down required to fund the project for clients and third party funders.

Tender Documents

A structured set of documents which lay out the project requirements in a systematic and consistent manner for the purposes of receiving compliant and comprehensive tender submissions from tenderers.

Tender Process Management

The management of the flow of information and documents to the tenderers to maintain consistency and fairness of the treatment throughout the tendering period. This, ensures that all of the tenders received are based on the same information thus permitting a fair and robust comparison of all the tenders received.

Tender Analysis

The detailed analysis of the tenders received to compare rates and prices, to ensure compliance with the tender documents and to enable a direct comparison on a ‘like for like’ basis to permit a true and accurate comparison of the prices for carrying out the works. This will highlight any ambiguities or inconsistencies such as ‘’front loading’’ and rate distortions of items which may be subject to variations.

Contract Documentation

Formal sets of legal documents signed by the Client and the Contractor detailing the scope, the quality, the program, the contract conditions, and the contract sum to be paid to the Contractor for the works. The Form of Contract details the obligations of each party during the construction period in respect of procedures, responsibilities, rules and regulations and any other matters related to the execution of the works.
A detailed, thorough, well-constructed set of Contract Documents is essential to ensure that both parties are fully aware of the other party’s obligations and are adequately protected should problems arise during the construction period or during the period after completion.

Interim Valuations

The regular (typically monthly) assessment of the progress of the construction works compared to program with an assessment of materials stored on site including the costs of any approved variations resulting in a recommendation for a payment for the Contractor from the Employer in accordance with the Conditions of Contract. The amount certified is tracked against the cash flow forecast as a guide to establish progress against program.

Monthly Cost Reports

The regular detailed assessment of the cost of the project to date, summary of any variations instructed or anticipated, adjustment of Provisional Sums and assessment of the likelihood of any potential Contractual Claims and summaries of payments made to date and updated cash flow forecasts. The cost report is a vital tool for anticipating the estimated final cost of the construction works so that the Client is fully informed of the anticipated out-turn costs of the project at all times.

Settlement of Final Accounts

The final negotiation of the Contractor’s account, agreement of all variations and claims; making due recommendation to the Client and drafting all documentation to close the contract.

Change Control Management

The procedure for the approval of any changes to the project from either the Client, Design Team or Contractor, so that the time, cost and quality implications of any change can be thoroughly reviewed and estimated so that the Client can make informed and educated about the impact of the change to the completion of the project.

Whole-Life Cost Analysis

The whole-life costs of a building is a process whereby the design is analysed to compare the costs of construction of various elements of the design with the associated operating, maintenance or replacement costs over the life of the building through to eventual demolition and disposal. Significant financial, operational and environmental benefits can be identified using a whole- life approach to the design and operation of the building, so that the Client can make informed decisions as to the capital-versus-operating expenditure benefits over the life of the asset.

Cost Modeling

High level, early stage, elemental analysis of the estimated construction cost of a building which is based on cost data benchmarked from other similar completed buildings which provides the Client and the Design Team a platform for understanding the ‘’cost drivers’’ of the project.

Cost Data Benchmarking

The comprehensive and detailed analysis of final construction costs of similar completed buildings to allow comparison of elements of the actual costs to serve as a guide of the design of the new project. The key to benchmarking is consistency and setting the parameters to ensure consistency in approach that every element of each building is analysed in exactly the same way. This enables the Client and the Design Team to be able to make informed and educated decisions as to the design and cost of a building when compared to other similar completed projects.


Value Engineering

Facilitated Value Engineering Workshops

Value Engineering (VE) is not a design or peer review or a simply cost- cutting exercise. VE is a creative, organized effort, which analyses the requirements of a project for the purpose of achieving the essential functions at the lowest total costs (capital, staffing, energy, maintenance) over the life of the project. Through a team collaboration and, various elements are reviewed in details to ensure ‘’value for money’’ and that it meets the project brief. This is carried out through the study of alternate design concepts, materials, and methods without compromising the functional and value objectives of the client. If a fully facilitated Workshop is required, then this is hosted by a qualified and experienced Facilitator whose purpose is to encourage collaboration and draw out as many options for consideration. These options are then costed for Client and Design Team review for implementation of rejection. Ongoing value engineering should be carried out through all stages of the design to ensure that the budget expectations are met.



Risk Management

Facilitated Risk Management Workshops

Management Risk Management is the identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks (defined in ISO 31000 as the effect of uncertainty on objectives, whether positive or negative) followed by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and likely impact of unfortunate events or to maximize the realization of opportunities.
The fully facilitated Workshop is run by a qualified and experienced Facilitator whose purpose is to ensure that project risk is collectively addressed within the team, ownership is allocated to the person best equipped to manage an individual risk and that mitigation actions are



Fund / Loan Monitoring

Fund / Loan Monitoring

An investigation into the financial and commercial activities of an existing construction project in connection with a proposed loan acquisition on behalf of a funding institution. The due diligence process includes the gathering, analysis and interpretation of financial, commercial, legal and marketing information and issuing strategic advice to the Client.

Monthly Draw-Down Reports

One a loan is in place it is important to ensure that the vested interests of the funding institution is looked after by providing monthly reports on the progress of the development, and the commensurate value of works executed to ensure that the draw-down against the loan facility reflects the value of works identified as complete on the site



Fire Insurance Valuations

Fire Insurance Valuations

Accurate concise assessments of the current day re-build costs of buildings including demolition, new build to current standards and associated professional fees to ensure that the client properly insures his assets.

Claims Assessment

Claims Assessment

The methodical analysis of entitlement to additional money and / or time resulting from alleged delays, ensuring that Cause and Effect are robustly and accurately accounted for and illustrated within the context of the prevailing Conditions of Contract and local Laws.

Project Management

The skill of leading, planning, organising, managing, and delivering projects to meet time, cost and quality aspirations whilst engaging and administering stakeholders to achieve the project goal.

Initiation

The initiating process sets out the nature and scope of the project and the early stages are critical for the project to be successful. Project controls are put in place so that an understanding of the business objectives of the Client are communicated to the Design Team and a culture of success is fostered. At this early stage, we would implement a protocol which encompasses measurable goals such as the establishment of appropriate budgets and time frames, stakeholder and end user needs analysis, as well as the management of the teams and individuals to deliver the project.

Planning and design

The main purpose is to plan time, cost and manage resources to effectively manage risk during through design and onto project execution. The setting of specific targets will include the project timescales, costs, quality and operational efficiency whilst detailing how this will be achieved.

Execution

The execution stage consists of the procedures in order to complete the work defined in the project plan in order to accomplish the project's requirements. This involves coordinating all of the team members and external parties and keeping the Client aware of all issues associated with successful project delivery.

Monitoring and controlling

The key activities of monitoring and controlling consists of those processes performed to ensure timely and thorough project execution so that any potential issues are highlighted in order for decisions to be made by the Client and Design Team so that the project can still meet the prescribed standards as set out in the brief. The key benefit is that project performance is managed and clearly reported regularly to identify variances from the project management plan. Monitoring and controlling includes measuring the ongoing project activities ('where we are'), monitoring the project variables (cost, time, quality, health and safety, procurement, variations, third parties against the project management plan and then measured against the project performance baseline (‘where we should be’), Identifying corrective actions to address issues and risks properly (‘How can we get on track again’) and to ensure the project is ‘’kept on course’’.

Closing

Closing comprises the contractual completion and handing over of the project and the subsequent occupation by administrative activities include the archiving of files and documenting lessons learned; finalizing all activities to formally close the project, or an individual project phase, and ensure each contract is completed and handed over in accordance with the project brief.
