Dutch to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Other / a profession, apparently Belgian terminology
Dutch term or phrase:Meetkundige-Schatter Onroerende Goederen
Speaking frankly, as I do from time to time, I am always amazed to see how little there is in the Nl-En and/or Fl-En glossary. Admittedly I'm spoiled by the help found in glossaries on other sites, where one can rely on finding solutions or some guidance towards answers. Even this term, which is a profession, is missing 100% in both glossaries. it's 0 0 0 0 0 0 for both terms. I assume it's an assessor or surveyor of sorts, but need the exact English term for the profession.
Thanks for your help.

Thanks Andre and peers

A Quantity Surveyor can identify and collate the costs involved in order to develop an overall budget for any project. They can then undertake cost planning which aims to help all members of the design team arrive at practical solutions and stay within the project budget. It is the final detailed estimate prepared by the Quantity Surveyors, in consultation with a project architect, which forms a basis on which subsequent tenders can be evaluated. Schedules of quantities translate the drawing, plans and specifications produced by the design team to enable each contractor to calculate tender prices fairly, on exactly the same basis as the competitors.
