MEM Project - Tender Internship Waikato Expressway (Tamahere to Cambridge Section)

The following report gives an overview of my internship completed with HEB Construction Limited on the tender for Tamahere to Cambridge section of the Waikato Expressway.
The focus of the internship was on quantity surveying and the process of tendering. An emphasis was also put on investigating and understanding aspects of tendering related to the New Zealand Transport Authority.
After analysing the work completed during the internship, the main finding was that efficiency during the early stages of quantity surveying can be increased. In the future, this will be achieved through replacing scale rulers with computer software which simplify many of the time consuming processes currently used to capture the information on design drawings.
