The QuantumS Ltd. is a consultancy company offering a complete line of quantity surveying services for new built and renovation projects including cost management, contract management, procurement strategy, specialty services, like due diligence and loan/project monitoring services, for new or distressed properties, etc.
The company was established in Hong Kong in 2019 by the Founder, Mr. Frank Kwok, who has extensive knowledge and expertise in the field for over 30 years of solid experience in both Mainland China and Hong Kong.
As the company name implies, we are the one who specialize in the “cost and quantity” of the construction projects. The word “quantum”, which was first coined in the 16th century, in the general sense, is defined as “quantity" or "amount”, and this match perfectly with our expertise. This is why we are The QuantumS where the “S” represents our surveying services.
In China, metrology “度量衡“ has been standardized in the Qin Dynasty over 2000 years ago covering the length, volume and weight. Since then, the instrument “升” has been used as a standardized gauge for measuring volume.
Showing on the right is the instrument “商映方升” certified by the Chinese official 2300 years ago.
Here is a variant of the instrument “方升” which has sub-divisions.
From another perspective, we identified the English alphabets "Q" and "S" on the instrument and its sub-divisions.
The Chinese word “量” has been used to describe the “quantity”, and we are using these two Chinese words “升量” to symbolize the gauging and evaluation of all sorts of quantities and costs involved in the construction industry.
This is how our name comes:
