One particular of the tasks of civil engineer is the project management. Wherever a project commence, it is beginning of ‘live’ of project difficulty till it has been completed create. Under are some of popular challenges that civil engineer may perhaps faced:
1. Project commenced without having acknowledgment of civil engineer. It is popular particularly for tiny scale of project such as single unit of structure like bungalow. Engineer will only alert anytime difficulty is occurred at web site and difficulty is unable to resolve it by contractor. Contractor will like to create it without having interruption of engineer.
two. Even even though civil engineer conscious about the building operate, some of un- accountable contractor will attempt to do some operate in the time that engineer is unable to present. As for instance contractor carry out the concreting operate soon after workplace hour particularly in the evening, nighttime and public vacation. As soon as concreted, engineer is unable to inspect it.
three. Anytime building began, un-knowledge contractor will do operate by referring to civil engineering drawings without having study in-conjunction with other specialist drawing such as architecture, mechanical and electrical drawings. As a outcome, there will be a quantity of hacking through or soon after completion of structural performs. It incurred a quantity of arguments and charges.
four. Even even though an inexperience contractor is study engineering drawings, somehow contractor is create to their personal know-how particularly from contractor prior project. If previously contractor had been constructed a quantity of pad footing foundation, contractor receive a piling foundation project. The contractor will attempt to alter it to pad footing foundation by his personal know-how. Or even in pad footing foundation, contractor will alter pad footing to smaller sized size. It will finish up with structural difficulty.
five. Some irresponsible contractor will ignore engineer instruction. Contractor will create to his personal know-how. Contractor will generally persuade client that contractor is builder. Contractor tells client that he is much more web site knowledge than civil engineer. Engineer has not significantly web site developing knowledge. Most of the time, client will agree with contractor simply because contractor shown client with physical building performs and engineer without having significantly of physical solution. These will continue till difficulty occurred and unable to resolve by contractor. Lastly, they will seek for engineer guidance.
six. Contractor execute price cutting on project operate. Now days, project price is extremely competitive. In order to receive a project by bidding, some contractor may perhaps reduced down the bidding price to beneath the price. When project is awarded, contractor will execute unnecessary price cutting. This will endanger client.
7. When client is contractor and contractor is client, civil engineer will be in hard position on dealing with client and contractor. There will be generally in conflict of interest.
These challenges may perhaps faced by civil engineer. How to overcome them will primarily base on engineer knowledge. Junior engineer shall not guidance to send them to resolve these matters. Anyway, junior engineer shall be in guidance of senior engineer anytime challenges are getting solved.
