Kue-S-Services Pty Ltd
Quantity Surveyors and Building Estimating Services



"We have been relying upon quantity take-off and pricing by Kue-S-Services since commencement of business, in 2006. Ken and his company were, at the time, recommended to us by another happy client. Over the last 7 years we experienced nothing but a great service. Projects were reviewed meticulously and jobs processed swiftly and in a professional manner. Ken's involvement, however, extends further: he is always available to assist with comments and opinions and he actively helps resolve issues of buildability at the critical points of the design."


"Our company has never needed the services of a Quantity Surveyor before. We were referred to Kue-S-Services for two projects and found his experience extremely professional and pleasant. Ken has extensive knowledge of construction costs and estimating. The service he provided was excellent value for money. We will use him again if needed."


"Our company has used Kue-S Services for several years now and we have found the service provided excellent. As a building company we are quite often under strict time restraints to present tenders and Ken has always come through for us on time with no exceptions.

I highly recommend Kue-s Services and we hope to continue using the excellent service provided for years to come."


"Since 1993 we have consulted with Quantity Surveyor Ken Whyte of Kue-S-Services on estimating building costs and he is working on current projects for this office. We have found Ken’s services to be accurate and on time and his charges to be reasonable. Our architectural practice includes commercial and residential apartment buildings as well as single houses and expert witness reports on houses modified for people with disabilities."


" Ken provided detailed construction cost analyses for 2 clients of mine - in Chatswood and Willoughby. The information has enabled them to make informed decisions in the planning stages of the renovations for their homes. Ken's service was prompt and extremely useful."


"I have used Kue-S Services for the preparation of a Builder’s Bill of Quantities, on numerous occasions, ranging from small refurbishments under $0.5mil, right through to complex high security power stations over $6mil in value.In the field of tendering, time is of utmost importance. I find that Kue-S Services has always been able to provide the BOQ on or before the required deadline, and always to the layout/format as easy for builder’s pricing. Will not hesitate to recommend Kue-S Services to other builders."

Project Manager

I have found Kue-S services to be extremely reliable and efficient. I have had the opportunity to use Kue-S services on a number of occasions and would continue to use them. Ken is a pleasure to work with and understands very well the requirements of the project. I have no hesitation in recommending their services as I believe they provide a professional, cost-effective service that meets the requirements of my clients.


We have used Kue-S Services to provide cost estimation services on a number of projects, ranging from a $6m mausoleum to a $0.5m industrial complex. Despite being new to the cemeteries sector, we found Ken was able to get a grasp on the designs and materials quickly, and his estimates were always close to the actual tender prices received.

Ken is accommodating, flexible, friendly, and is able to work to tight deadlines, prioritising his work as required. We are pleased with the services of Kue-S and continue to use their services on projects.


I have had a long relationship with Ken from 1998. He has been accurate with assistance on a broad range of construction projects that include residential, civil and industrial buildings. The projects include estimates for a 1,700 unit residential development in Townsville of $300m (2007), a hospital, retrofitting 6 heritage buildings $17m (1999), 62 unit development for $16m (1998), a land subdivision of 86 free standing houses $55m (2000) and many luxury houses over the past decade ($800k to $1.5m). Ken’s accuracy is consistent whether it is for small works or larger projects. Ken remains my first choice as a Quantity Surveyor for large or small projects as I move into the 15th year of relying on his services.
