The Resident Engineer—A Member of the Construction Team

by Eugene F. Casey, Mason & Hanger Silas Mason Co, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Excellence in the Constructed Project


The prime concern of a Resident Engineer is to see to it that the structure is built in accordance with the plans and specifications and that the work is carried out in a proper manner. In order to ensure that his task will be successful, the Resident Engineer must be part of the construction team consisting of himself, his staff and the contractor. He must be a contributing member of the team by offering recommendations, advice and suggestions to the contractor. He must make certain that each member of his staff applies the same standards in the inspection of the work. A project on which the team approach is not used results in a project that does not finish on time and has a great deal of problems associated with it.
