The Resident Engineer—Staffing the Teamby W. Thomas Meredith, Parsons Brinckerhoff Construction, Services Inc, McLean, VA, USA,
Abstract: One of the initial actions a Resident Engineer (RE) must grapple with each time he begins a new construction project is how to staff his construction team. The balancing of the type and number of personnel and the costs associated with them is a dilemma we have all faced at one time or another. Assuming the RE will be reporting to a client outside his own corporate structure, the requirements for developing a RE staff are fourfold: (1) consider the factors affecting the staffing; (2) provide the best personnel available; (3) develop the funding from the staff selected; and (4) systematically adjust the first three for the best staff at the best price. This paper discusses them briefly.
