Engage a TempTask QS or Estimator to deliver your next task in 4 quick and easy steps

If you are experiencing an upturn in workload that your current resources are struggling to meet, have a specific QS task that needs completing requiring specialist skills, or simply do not have a QS or estimator as part of your team then TempTask is your solution.

We provide the UK’s first and only fully online service dedicated to outsourcing the most frequently required Quantity Surveying tasks, ideal for Main Contractors, Subcontractors, Developers or Consultants.

TempTask has a simple 4 step procedure to getting your required task delivered:


Step 1 - Create your TempTask

Register with us at TempTask, it takes about 60 seconds, then simply complete the online form to detail the task that you require.

Tell us the location, sector of work, and task required, either selecting from our pre-defined list of tasks, or by specifying your own unique task description.



Step 2 – Select your professional

Choose whether to use a specific Quantity Surveyor to undertake your task from an existing working relationship, or have us tender to a panel of specifically selected and matched Quantity Surveyors registered to TempTask to your requirements to ensure maximum cost efficiency.

Tenders from matching Quantity Surveyors are returned to you for your consideration within the timescale that you have chosen, along with their own Terms and Conditions for delivering your task.

We provide a schedule of all tenders submitted for your consideration, ranked by price, experience and our own ranking system based on the previous performance of our Quantity Surveyors as judged by you, the Clients.

Competitive tendering of tasks ensures best value and best choice of Quantity Surveyor is provided to clients.

The facility to select a chosen Quantity Surveyor ensures an efficient continuity of repeat tasks and building of strong working relationships

Step 3 – Accept and Pay

Review your returned tender prices, along with the terms and conditions submitted by the matched Quantity Surveyors and accept the one that best suits.

Pay for your task via our ecommerce facilities enabling you to quickly and easily pay via PayPal and most credit/debit cards

Monies are held by TempTask in our holding account and only released to your chosen Quantity Surveyor on your acceptance of the completed task.

Any increases or decreases in the scope of your task are managed through our built in variation process, and applicable changes in fee negotiated directly between the Client and Quantity Surveyor.

Step 4 – Receive your Completed Task

We provide the facilities for you to communicate with your selected Quantity Surveyor throughout the task via our in-built TempTask Messenger system, and provide the facility to upload and share documentation necessary to undertake the task.

If the task changes, we provide the mechanism for the Client and Quantity Surveyor to agree this change, and facilitate payment through our ecommerce facilities.

Once completed, you will be notified that the task is complete and be asked to approve your completed task.  If you feel that the task is incomplete and needs a little more work, don’t worry.  We will communicate this to your selected Quantity Surveyor and ensure that the task is complete to your satisfaction.

Only upon your acceptance of the completed task do we release payment to your selected Quantity Surveyor.
