A Civil Engineer plays an essential role in many different types of projects. Just like a doctor serves a specific purpose in your health, no one can fill the role that a Civil Engineer does.
Their extensive knowledge of the land-planning process, regulatory aspects involved in construction work and managing projects is both invaluable and highly sought after. Then, there’s construction documents, permits and work compliance information to prepare.
Here are 5 reasons why you might seek out the support of a Civil Engineer.
1. For preliminary evaluations
As Civil Engineers survey the land, determine the size and boundaries of a property, dealing with permits and cross-checks with local building codes, it’s useful to bring them in at the beginning of a project – to make sure all your planning T’s are crossed and I’s are dotted.
2. To assist with project management
As the project develops, it’s important to have a Civil Engineer to oversee the different steps throughout the design, construction, and building processes. The preliminary work is essential, but ongoing involvement will foresee any ongoing issues to improve the end result. An extra level of experience and insight is invaluable when safety is concerned.
3. Reduce construction costs
By ensuring you’re complying with the law and intercepting any (expensive) projects costs from day one, you’ll minimise construction costs – both for the duration of the project and moving forward. By keeping costs as low as possible, your client will benefit and, most likely, work with you again.
4. Greater peace of mind
Even if you’ve got a team of experienced engineers, having a professional who is outside the project, offering ‘fresh eyes’, adds a layer of quality assurance. If you’re launching a project in an area that’s new, hiring a local Civil Engineer can give you the peace of mind, knowing you’re not missing anything.
5. Expand your team
If you’ve secured a new project that requires additional Civil Engineers, you don’t need to hire full-time staff. Contractor Civil Engineers are available to lead the team and ensure it all fits together. They’ll hold your engineers accountable, while ensuring a project is completed on time, on budget, and up to the level of quality.
Put simply, Civil Engineers are problem-solvers… and, more importantly, devisors of solutions.
With a Civil Engineer, you can rest easy knowing your project is being constructed correctly. We’d love to fill this role on your next project.
