Scott Walker BSc Hons QS

Director & Senior Quantity Surveyor

Scott established Walker QS Consultants in 2016 after working for some of Wellington’s most recognisable construction businesses and a developer.  From an initial two-year cadetship, he progressed to become a respected Senior Quantity Surveyor.  Scott’s early career as an aircraft engineer in the Royal Air Force (UK) provided him with a diversity of engineering skills and it was at this time that he became involved in residential developments and studied plumbing and electrical works.  At United Kingdom’s Reading University, he studied for his Diploma in Surveying Practices followed by his BSC Hons Degree majoring in Quantity Surveying.

Scott has had a very busy eight years of commercial experience as a Quantity Surveyor, Contracts Manager and Regional Commercial Manager on a large range of jobs from small seismic projects through to complex multi-million-dollar developments.  He was responsible for project management and quantity surveying to access high level financial viability through to new builds and renovation works.  In the past four years Scott has diversified into the residential sector, assisting a major group builder along with small to medium size developers.

Scott oversees every Walker QS Consultants’ project, bringing his extensive experience to each project no matter the scale.
