About Us

Intrepid Quantity Surveying Inc. (IQS) was founded by Michael Shackell (President) in 2012. Mr. Shackell saw a need for a more personal approach to consulting, and established a practice drawing from more than 20 years of Quantity Surveying experience in both the UK and Canada. As an accredited Professional Quantity Surveyor (PQS) and a chartered member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyor (MRICS), Mr. Shackell brings 15+ years of specialized project monitoring experience. Under the guidance of Mr. Shackell are 7 additional technical staff.


Since inception, IQS has been retained to provide project monitoring services to top tier banks and credit institutions. Having been noted in the approved list of multiple lenders, IQS also works closely with the brokerage and development community, helping clients to establish budget benchmarks in preparation for financing.


Further to project monitoring, IQS also provides litigation support, cost estimation, building condition assessments and procurement advice, and have also peer reviewed work completed by other consultants.


IQS is active in all markets across Canada. From Calgary, Alberta to Montreal, Quebec and multiple projects in the Maritime provinces. Ontario, from Windsor in the South West to Ottawa, through to Thunder Bay and Timmins in the North, and across the entire Greater Toronto Area. 


IQS is a hands-on organisation that is committed to working closely with our business partners in achieving success. The ability to understand and connect with our clients has enabled us to grow quickly, and we look forward to working with you in establishing a mutual partnership of success.
