Engineering services are critical in any construction project. Through the help of engineers trained in diverse sub-disciplines, construction projects are carried out according to plan and regulatory requirements, and within the schedule. To ensure the correct implementation of the project, some engineer reports may be drafted and submitted to the client, the council and other stakeholders involved in the construction.
Roles of a Construction Engineer
To understand the kind of reports expected to be drafted and submitted by engineers, it is important to know first the general roles of construction engineers:
From these roles, the assigned engineer is expected to draft reports for submission to the client or the council. Specific reports may be submitted depending on the specialisation of the engineer or based on the requirements of the client or property owner. For example, an engineer report can be in the form of structural analysis. This report describes the behaviour of the structure under load. Engineers will normally use a computer software to simulate the impact of load on the structure.
Engineering reports can also come in the form of the structural report. This focuses on the structural maintenance of the buildings. It is also the job of the engineer to investigate waterproofing failures, building movements, concrete spalling and general structural defects. The observations and findings are included in a specific engineering report. Also, a construction engineer will prepare building maintenance plans and structural engineering reports to help in the preparation of documents for rectification works.
