A civil engineer is the person who is responsible for checking the structural integrity of any building or type of construction. This means that he or she needs to be there for every aspect of the construction project, from the planning phase to the digging of the foundations right up to conclusion of the project. The civil engineer is also responsible for ensuring that all the building and construction materials used in the project meet the highest standards, thus minimising any possibility of failing for the course of time it is in use. Most construction projects require the expertise of more than one engineer to perform all these tasks and use companies that offer civil engineering services.
The civil engineer works in close contact with an architect who is responsible for the aesthetic value of a construction. Most engineering companies will have an in house architect as part of their civil engineering services that will take care of the design of the structure. An engineer will take the drawings from the architect and along with a project management team be able to assess the type of building materials and other items that will be needed to create the building or structure. This process will also be able to map out the amount of labourers that will be needed to complete the project.
Once all these and many more factors have been taken into account, the engineer and project management team will be able to estimate a completion date as well as the amount of funds that will be required to build the structure. Getting the right permissions to begin building the structure is also a service that will be provided by the civil engineering company.
