Part of: Excellence in the Constructed Project


Traditional project goals invariably distill to achieving a high quality project that is on time and within budget. In meeting these goals, todays resident engineers must do far more than provide technical liaison between the engineer and constructor. They must also deal effectively with a myriad of communication, safety, environmental, reporting, record keeping and contractual details that affect the overall success of the project. Implementation of a contemporary resident program requires engineers that utilize a wide rane of talents and accept a high degree of accountability. Examples from a typical power plant construction project provide an outline of the organization, activities and performance expectations of a private owner.
