A Quantity Surveyor prepares economic feasibility studies, gives advice on construction cost planning, and prepares tender documents, specifications, and construction contracts.

What Is a Quantity Surveyor?
Capabilities guide explains the role of a quantity surveyor as the financial manager of a construction team. The guide explains how the company's services help gather the resources needed for the satisfactory completion of a construction project.
http://www.manufacturing.net/magazine/planteng/archives/1995...

During the Design Stage, the quantity surveyor is in charge of the following:
 advising the client on the various construction costs involved
 producing a document called the Bills of Quantities which details every item of construction needed in the design. This document is given together with the design to potential contractors for them to submit a bid for the job
 advising the client on contractual rights and arbitration procedures when disputes arise

«Инженер-сметчик» seems to be the Russian term for the one who performs all these function. You may wish to use it as it is, or specify it further, like “инженер-сметчик в строительстве», инженер-сметчик в проектировании и строительстве», «инженер-сметчик отдела капитального строительства», etc. All these examples can be located on the web. “Сметчик” seems to be more appropriate, rather than “нормировщик”, if we are talking about a new facility, which is in the design and/or construction stage.

I would use the other term, “нормировщик”, is a context where a production enterprise is meant, rather than a new “greenfield” facility, or any renovation involving construction:

Explanation:
"QUANTITY SURVEYOR

Alternative Titles

Surveyor (Quantity)
Building Estimator

Tasks and Duties

Quantity surveyors:

consult with clients
study and discuss architects' and engineers' building plans
advise on building materials and costs
recalculate costs if the design changes
visit building sites regularly
certify progress claims and payments to contractors against the work they've actually done on site
prepare final financial accounts
may work out how long building will take
may compare building progress with plans"

http://www.careers.co.nz/jobs/12a_des/j31331a.htm

Ref. Multilex 2.0.
quantity-surveyor (строительство) = нормировщик.

"инженер-сметчик"= estimator-engineer,
not quantity surveyor.

Generally speaking there are a lot of mistakes, omits and disappointing variants of translation in Lingvo. Please take it into account.

техник-плановик


Explanation:
"Oxford Student's dictionary" дает слудующее определение: an expert who estimates quantities and cost of materials needed in building.
Такую работу выполняет техник- плановик.
Пример: Техник-плановик может работать и техником- нормировщиком . В этом случае он осуществляет "фотографирование" и хронометраж затрат рабочего времени, рассчитывает нормы времени и нормы выработки, исправляет их и т.п.

Желаю успеха!:)
