The importance to the owner, engineering firm, and construction contractor of a qualified Resident Engineer on a construction project cannot be overly emphasized. Similarly, the duties, responsibilities, limitations of authority, and qualifications of the Resident Engineer must be clearly understood by all parties if the project is to be brought to a satisfactory and successful completion. This paper presents the writer's perception of the position, qualifications, duties, responsibilities, authority, and liability of the Resident Engineer as a member of a large Consulting Engineering firm in the environmental field.
