Quantity Surveying input is often essential to ensuring a cost effective solution to complex situations.


MCS Consultants are highly qualified and experienced in their respective fields. All our Reports are based upon established fact or reasonably drawn conclusions that can be easily understood by claims handlers or other parties.

We are regularly appointed to perform Desktop Reviews and Desktop Audits of pricing of works, vetting of invoices and analysis of work either not completed or otherwise in dispute. We also undertake post-repair inspections to confirm that repairs have been completed to comply with the National Construction Code (NCC) and relevant Australian Standards.

MCS Reports typically identify actual damage, cause and effect, cost effective remediation, hazard mitigation and risk analysis, realistic costing, and dissected Scopes of Work (identifying damage that is event related separately to damage caused by pre-existing or non-event related causes). Reports and Scopes of Work are presented in clear, concise, easy to understand formats.


MCS Building Consultants are available in all major centres throughout the country.

If one is needed anywhere else, we will identify the right person for the job and send them to wherever they are needed.

All of our Building Consultants are highly experienced and fully qualified.

All have been working in and around the building industry for many years.

Typical assignments include everything from fires and storm damage, water leaks and poor workmanship, to cracking render and cupping floor boards. Our team also inspect inside roof spaces, under suspended timber floors etc so that no part of the investigation is left to chance.


MCS is often appointed to investigate problems with swimming pools and spas many of which are fibreglass lined. These exhibit a specific set of unique problems from cracking to hydrostatic uplift.

Several members of our team have particular expertise in this arena and are able to provide solid professional guidance and advice in connection with these matters.

More importantly, the underlying causes are highlighted together with specific recommendations on how to ensure that the damage does not reoccur.


Preparation of Contract Documentation and/or DA submissions to Council, reports specific to the National Construction Code (NCC), Council, Government, Fire or other Regulators, project management, safety management, Expert Witness reports, Insurance Pre-Risk Analysis, hazard mitigation, disaster response, information and advice on containment of costs and leakage control, and rapid response to all matters no matter what size. In cases where an emergency response is required we are often able to have a consultant attend on site the same day.
