Find professionals that make your projects reality. Sucesfull projects, ensures you more ambitious projects.

Cost Engineer

Cost Engineer is responsible for monitoring and analyzing the costs, expenses and forecasts of a project.
Within this specialization in construction, we will focus on managing costs associated to any activity associated with the project, this is, from its programming of resources, the assessment of investments and risk analysis. All in order to obtain an optimum balance between cost, quality and time objectives. Definitely, a Cost Engineer is an engineer whose experience and knowledge are used to carry out the analysis of the profitability of a project.

Cost Engineer as technical profile, which requires a broad knowledge of the studied works and skills to the time to use different tools for estimating costs. They will report reports and will be supervised by a technician within the organization.

Cost engineering began in the 1950’s. The AACE International was founded in 1956, is one of many international engineering organizations representing professionals in these moments. In 2006, AACE published the Total Cost Management (TCM) that describes a process for the application of the skills and knowledge of cost engineering. Also it has been called the world’s first process for portfolio, program and project management.
One of the key objectives of cost engineering is to obtain estimates of costs and schedules the most precise as possible to avoid cost overruns, delays in the programming. Cost Engineer also participates in the management resources and support to management in their decision making. The wide range of prices and themes covering the cost engineering involves extensive knowledge in the fields of project management, the Business Administration and engineering projects. Engineering is concerned with issues that go beyond the physical manifestation of a design or a structure, there are other dimensions to consider, such as money, the time and other resources that were invested in the implementation of a project. Cost Engineer is a complement to traditional engineering, an essential specialist to any construction company.

HSE Engineer

A HSE Engineer is responsible to enforce the criteria and standards, both safety and health as environmental, of a company. It will make this task according to the organizational level that the company you granted, that is, according to the established organizational chart. So can handle the work on site or giving support the HSE Manager in the management of the company, depending on the size of it.

Within functions or tasks associated with a HSE Engineer, we can list the following:

Planning Engineer

The Planning engineers are responsible for identifying and developing the most appropriate methods and
economically more viable way in the implementation of a construction project. They are involved in all the
stages of their development, and are present during their implementation to monitor the planned procedures.

Is the responsibility of the Planning Engineer estimate and control the period of execution of a construction project and ensure therefore that the designated milestones are met. It works in close collaboration with the Constructor Manager and other engineers to ensure a supply of sufficient and adequate resources.

Among their tasks in an organization of the construction sector we could summarize as follows:
-Decide on the techniques and sequences of engineering and most suitable activities for each stage of the project.
-Establish and communicate the “critical path” of the work so that stakeholders are aware of their relevance.
-Represent the programming of the work. For this purpose it is recommended the use of specialized programs such as Primavera, Microsoft Project, Synchro, Excel, etc. You must coordinate all the information for the creation of a unique program.
-In collaboration with the Cost Engineer, you must prepare the detailed costs of the man hours, machine hours, loading this information on the program used.

-Anticipate and resolve any problems, bottlenecks and conflicts with the programming.
-Coordinate internal revisions in what refers to measurements and schedule.

Project Engineer

Project Engineer embodies the connection between the different technical disciplines of civil engineering, in our case, with the wishes of the direction of projects and clients. It is responsible for translating into a project or report, the constructive design specifications. The Engineer Project is often the technical point of primary contact for the consumer.

In some cases, Project Engineer, and also the Assistant Project Manager, perform tasks of Project Manager
as in any organization will depend on the size of the enterprise and its organizational criteria. In most of the cases, these two professionals have the common responsibility of leading a project.

Project Engineer responsibilities include the preparation of programming and forecast of resources for engineering and other technical activities related to the project. They may also be in charge of the management of other potential suppliers in each project. Project Engineers manage the resources from the Team Project and training and the development of extensive experience of project management and experience. Project teams can be structured in a way covering multiple disciplines and specialties that give support to the Project Engineer. Therefore, two important responsibilities of it, are the coordination between different disciplines in all project and the overall control of the quality of the work carried out.

Project Engineer doesn’t necessarily make only design work, they represent the contractor , in the work. They help representatives and companies traders to interpret the meaning of theprojects, ensuring that you constructed it according to the plans of the project, and helping to make controls in it, including your budget, planning and programming.

Other frequent responsibilities assigned to Project Engineer are day-to-day activities of field work and the Organization of the subcontractors. Also the coordination of the implementation of a project, ensuring that it is building correctly in terms of time, quality and economy. You may also be responsible for interpreting drawings for non-technical work agents, as well as responsible for the review of deliverables of Engineering (plans, reports of all kinds, budgets, materials, etc.).

Ultimately enable, facilitate, and realize effective communication between engineering, the construction company and the operators of the work.

Quality Engineer

Quality Engineers will be the officials responsible for managing the inspection, testing and the regime of regulatory compliance to be applied to a work according to the specifications of the project and the associated documents. Will also resolve with customer any anomaly in the content of the construction project documentation.

They are responsible for collecting and approving plans and quality inspection and testing that are to be carried out during the execution of a work. The link with the customer to get his opinion and approval of the work are to be carried out. They also serve support providers in the evaluation and receipt of their products. These must be of accordance with the specifications of the project and the current applicable regulations.

Quality Engineers are responsible for investigate, resolve and implement corrective and preventive actions concerning quality problems like bad executions of work, flaws in the existing documentation, etc.
All this according to the guidelines set by the company and represented by the Quality Manager of the
Organization. Should establish a continuous improvement in the processes of quality in the implementation of projects and services offered by the manufacturer. Other liability which is entrusted to them, is the monitor generating a communication and documentation of quality with workers and suppliers.

Among their tasks in an organization of the construction sector we could summarize as follows:
-Assist in the maintenance, management and improvement of the quality management system in accordance with the specific requirements of every company in each country established and with the specifications of each construction project.
-Monitor the daily activities of execution for which he must act as inspector agent, giving instructions for the continuous improvement of the construction process.

-Handle the complaints of customers and external actors concerned, ensuring the execution and success of the
implemented corrective measures.
-Carry out internal and external quality audits and monitor its evolution.

Site Manager

In the construction sector, often also referred to as Construction Manager, Site Manager makes reference to those responsible for daily execution in a construction site. They are in charge of the production of the construction company. Agents which, from the field, direct work to be done, providing the necessary resources for this purpose.

The Site Manager has the responsibility and the custom of keeping the evolution of the works within the time limits and the budget assigned to their specific part of a project. Managing also delays or problems found in-situ during a construction project. Also works collaborating with Quality Engineer and the HSE Engineer in executing the work under strict quality, environmental, safety and health control at work.

Many Site Engineers are responsible for the management of communications between all parties involved in
the development of the work in production. They are also often required to attend consultations and communication with the public before any event happened. Normally, a Site Engineer is employed by a company of construction, contractor, or civil engineering company, but can also be used by the local authorities to supervise the execution, carrying out tasks of Quality Engineer or Site supervisor.

Therefore, within the skills of a good Site Manager, is to have good communication skills, ability to solve problems, commercial awareness, motivation and capacity skills to work in team. They are also responsible to prepare the sites prior to the start of construction work to establish the necessary facilities.

Among their tasks in an organization of the construction sector we could summarize as follows:

-Serve as a liaison with customers and report entrusted to his superior, normally the Construction Manager.
-Control the fulfillment of his work to subcontractors.
-To facilitate all kinds of inspection aimed at regulatory compliance, whether health and safety, or environmental quality.
-Guarantee and monitor the construction carried out, as well as the security measures taken to do so.
-Prepare the mandatory reports with the help of the technical work office.
-Maintenance and improvement of the company’s quality control procedures.
-Encourage work to the agents involved, as well as resolve and prevent problems.
-Impose and foster software applications and specialized construction managemant to improve the production and quality of the entrusted work.

Site Supervisor

The Site Supervisor has a vital role in the construction industry, where safety is a key factor does needs much prevention and dedication. The aim of the Site Supervisor is to prevent and locate any risk to the integrity of the workers, as well as for the integrity of the project quality to be carried out.

The exact role of a Site Supervisor depends largely on the entrusted work. Even so, we can establish common parameters in every case, regardless of the specific project. In the most cases, the work turns around management and personnal instruction during their work.

Establishing goals of functionality and control until the end of the same.
This type of work is not exclusive of the construction sector in any production process, its figure contributes to the project producing agents control sense. People with this type of experience are also necessary when companies develop activities such as the production of events or manufacturing mass in certain facilities. The work then, usually focuses on a period of transition and ends with the execution of a specific goal. The main task of the supervisor in this case, is to ensure that this objective is carried out according to the criteria laid down between the Company Executive Management, with its implementation regulations, and customer, with his contract’s execution.

The Site Supervisor clarifies and communicates goals to workers and meets them and in order to overcome them the best way possible. Often, this can be done by changes in running processes and motivating to the members of the team. The supervisor can encourage staff members to overcome its production, working as a team and preaching every day in the work with his own example.

Among their tasks in an organization of the construction sector we could summarize as follows:
-Communicate with the project management of the progress of the work, as well as the compliance with the criteria of quality and safety or environmental established by it.
-Responsible for verifying and monitoring the daily work of the staff’s work.
-Verify the compliance of protocols and specifications set forth in the work.
-Carried out, if necessary, entrusted supervision team, direct it and form it.
-Ensure that all security measures are installed and enabled before attempting any work.

Contractors should be aware of the rules of the work. You must contact them to convey the safety information in your workplace. They have to be aware of all the risks and security precautions to be carried out, even when the Site Manager is not there to supervise them.
