One of many duties of civil engineer is the venture administration. Wherever a venture begin, it’s beginning of ‘dwell’ of venture drawback till it has been accomplished construct. Beneath are a few of frequent issues that civil engineer could confronted:
1. Mission commenced with out acknowledgment of civil engineer. It’s common particularly for small scale of venture; resembling single unit of construction like bungalow. Engineer will solely alert each time drawback is occurred at website; and drawback is unable to resolve it by contractor. Contractor will wish to construct it with out interruption of engineer.
2. Although civil engineer conscious concerning the building work, a few of un- accountable contractor will attempt to do some work within the time that engineer is unable to current. As for instance; contractor perform the concreting work after workplace hour particularly within the night, nighttime and public vacation. As soon as concreted, engineer is unable to examine it.
three. Every time building began, un-experience contractor will do work by referring to civil engineering drawings with out learn in-conjunction with different skilled drawing resembling structure, mechanical and electrical drawings. Consequently, there will likely be quite a few hacking throughout or after completion of structural works. It incurred quite a few arguments and prices.
four. Although an inexperience contractor is learn engineering drawings, one way or the other contractor is construct to their very own information; particularly from contractor earlier venture. If beforehand contractor had been constructed quite a few pad footing basis, contractor receive a piling basis venture. The contractor will attempt to change it to pad footing basis by his personal information. And even in pad footing basis, contractor will change pad footing to smaller dimension. It is going to find yourself with structural drawback.
5. Some irresponsible contractor will ignore engineer instruction. Contractor will construct to his personal information. Contractor will at all times persuade consumer that contractor is builder. Contractor tells consumer that he’s extra website expertise than civil engineer. Engineer has not a lot website constructing expertise. More often than not, consumer will agree with contractor as a result of contractor proven consumer with bodily building works and engineer with out a lot of bodily product. These will proceed till drawback occurred and unable to resolve by contractor. Lastly, they may search for engineer recommendation.

With the intention to receive a venture by bidding, some contractor could decrease down the bidding value to under the associated fee. When venture is awarded, contractor will carry out pointless value chopping. This may endanger consumer.
7. When consumer is contractor and contractor is consumer, civil engineer will likely be in tough place on coping with consumer and contractor. There will likely be at all times in battle of curiosity.
These issues could confronted by civil engineer. Learn how to overcome them will primarily base on engineer expertise. Junior engineer shall not recommendation to ship them to resolve these issues. Anyway, junior engineer shall be in steering of senior engineer each time issues are being solved.
