Site engineers are technicians that work with the technical, supervisory and organisational structure of a construction job. Site engineers can also be used for roads, drains, sewers, and other construction related works.
Site engineers usually use designs and plans they are given by the general or manager overseeing the entire project. The site engineer will implement all the details at the site being involved in the entire project from small issues to larger issues. A lot of site engineers can work on small home style projects, as well as the multi-million pound projects. It can include road, rail, civil and infrastructure projects.
Site engineers do have a management team to help liaise with other workers such as architects, construction managers, engineers, supervisors, surveyors, sub contractors and planners. Site engineers also share responsibility with site security, supervision of material, health and safety and human resources.
Further details include:
A site engineer can act as a main advisor on a site working with subcontractors, operatives, and crafts people.
Site engineers can set out, survey, and level a site to help other individuals involved in the projects.
Site engineers will check the plans, drawings and calculations to ensure the entire project has been laid out without incident by those who are below site engineers and are actually doing the work.
These individuals also manage, monitor and interpret contract design documents.
Site engineers can liaise with many different individuals on the project as befits their position and time. Typically the site engineer answers the questions and only refers to the owner when the question is above their knowledge. They are a person for day-to-day management of the entire project or projects rather than being a working drone. All site engineers need to be highly organised, responsible and educated in construction knowledge to succeed in their position.
