Core Tasks

The following core tasks, and other specific assignments from Field Execution (Construction Services), include:

• Develop Construction Plans - CE’s manage the constructability from planning through construction. They evaluate structural, electrical, and mechanical condition of each project as the work proceeds. CE’s review all drawings and designs before they are implemented. They plan personnel flows and decide how other contractors and subcontractors will support ongoing field execution.
• Support Engineering Processes - CE’s are construction subject-matter experts that complete routine tests and inspections to make sure that all project requirements are followed. The CE team is staffed with a variety of skill sets and experience so that the CE’s are able to work together to provide the required resources to accomplish the requirements of each project. When required, the CE will reach back to the Design Authority (DA) and specific design engineers in the organization to validate requirements and objectives for specific projects.
• Construction Project Management - CE’s bring specific knowledge to construction projects, such as change management, cost control, cost accounting, and management of project schedules. They track, monitor, and provide performance evaluations, while keeping the field execution on track. When needed, they facilitate discussions and create solutions between construction contractors and construction managers. It is their responsibility to eliminate disagreements in the field and misunderstandings about expected work outcomes working with the Construction Manager. They keep an up-to-date understanding of all contract terms to prevent project delays and actively drive projects to completion.
• Draft Technical Support Documents - Keeping up-to-date logs, estimates, change orders, vendor forms, and surveys with different software is a key role of construction engineers. With documentation, they identify and spot technical problems in the construction process. If necessary, making sure that the Subcontractor is securing more materials to keep construction going to meet the planned execution schedule. Communicate with Team Leadership - Weekly meetings with the Construction Manager and all parties involved in a construction project are common for CE’s. Part of their job is to provide necessary status updates and respond to questions from contractors, clients, and their own company leadership. CE’s will provide project reports on a regular basis to the Construction Manager, providing accurate data on progress, problems, and support required for specific projects.
