Construction Project Management

What do they do? Whats there salary? How man hours per week? How long does it take to become a construction project engineer after High school graduation. Today I found out that… The main imp role of Construction Project Engg is to execute the project successfully on a given time frame (schedule)& to finish the project in estimated cost. The salary and working hours purely depend on the experience and the type of project. To become a construction Project Engg,u need to have Bachelors degree in Engg and enough experience.

A steeplejack is a specialist builder who is prepared to work at heights on factory chimneys, church steeples and other similarly high buildings. Fred Dibner is a famous steeplejack in England, who has his own television show, about blowing up old factory chimneys.

The main skill perceived to be necessary is the ability to work at great heights. This is not really a skill at all. The steeplejack must be competent in the main building areas like carpentry, brick laying and tiling, but that is all. Really he is a Jack of all Trades who works while hanging from a sling.

Like other rope access jobs, it is seen as dangerous by those not employed in it, but with modern safety regulations it carries lower risks than ordinary building site jobs do. Most people just imagine themselves up there and think the person at the top of the tower must be very brave. Bravery does not come into it, though. There is no risk if harnesses and safety lines are in good condition and safety procedures followed.

A steeplejack will never climb up without a safety harness and safety equipment, so he or she can not fall. Roofing workers on building sites rarely bother with safety ropes, harnesses and equipment, so have many more accidents than steeplejacks.

A steeplejack will erect ladders and working platforms from which masonry repairs (brick, stone or concrete), general carpentry, painting or roof repair can be carried out. The steeplejack is also commonly asked to remove, clean and repair windows, as well as sandblasting and other masonry cleaning tasks.

Steeplejacks are difficult to find and any climber or any builder with a good head for heights should consider becoming a specialist steeplejack. Rates of pay are higher than normal building sector pay because of the high perceived risk that the job carries.

A steeplejack will never work on his own, for safety reasons, but contractors are usually small business operations. If you are struggling to find one then just search online, or in the Yellow Pages.

How To Build A Road

I came up with this idea that I want to build a road. I just think it would be awsome to tell people I built that road and people can like drive on it and get places the only problem being I dont know the first thing about building one. I was hoping to get some pointers? Like what materials do I need to build it? And how long will it take me? (i might have a few friends helping but it will often be me) and what should I name it? Oh and how much will it cost :S thanks. After looking around, I learned — Dear Rebecca, If you are referring to a modern say four lane road, you will never build the road. Ever. Cost is enormous. $500,000 to $1,000,000 per mile. Have you ever seen the number of people involved with repaving a road? The planing machine alone would cost $250,000 to $600,000 used. I’magine the cost of operating the machine per hour. Now if you are considering a dirt and gravel road, that “may” be doable. Rent or purchase a bulldozer, acquire the land, obtain the permits, and start ‘dozing. After the road is leveled, buy, rent, or hire a dump truck. Dump truck is sent to the gravel quarry where it picks up loads of gravel. Spread gravel onto road bed. Spread the gravel with the dozer. This could reduce the cost to $10,000 to $50,000 per mile. Cost of the equipment and the cost of the gravel per ton will affect the final price of your very own road. As I said, you will never build a road.

Can anyone tell me how do I prepare for Msc construction course entrance exam What question normally they ask? Since this course are designed for non-cognate students, I don’t have any construction knowledge. . Please help . Basically… Construction industry is one of the emerging industry in India. The programme in construction management trains techno-managers for the construction industry. The curriculum is a judicious blend of theoretical and applied courses accompanied with practical experience and research work. Theoretical courses aim to improve the students’ understanding of certain fundamental phenomena and relationships that characterize the changing world in which managers must operate. Practical experience is gained by a student through construction practice, study tours and internship where he/she learns to practice the newly acquired management skills under the supervision of an expert. Research gives a techno manager the facility of scientific analysis of a problem and report writing skills. Computer application skills and knowledge of quantitative methods in managerial decision making are imparted through special courses in workshops / seminars. This programme is a multi-disciplinary stream of specialisation touching upon developmental aspects, statutory requirements, legal framework, business environment, infrastructure, funds and finance, technology and marketing etc.

This project took me all summer. The house was just being started as school let out, and the house finished up really on the very last days before school . . .

Highway Engineering

. After speaking to others on the web, I found the answer. . I know of no school in the US which offers a degree in highway and bridge engineering. The engineers whoever do this type of design are civil engineers and structural engineers (which is usually a civil engineer with advanced course work). . Concentrating on a single narrow field of design is generally frowned upon among engineering educators. Such concentration is considered learning a trade, rather than learning engineering. . If you want to learn just bridge and highway engineering and design, the most likely way to do this is to get an associates degree in civil engineering technology and then go to work for a state highway department, if you can find one which will hire you to do design work without a bachelors’ degree. . The most common and complete way to become a highway and bridge designer is to get a civil BS degree and go to work for a highway department or a consulting firm which specializes in highway work. Highway and bridge design requires a broad range of knowledge and experience, including soil mechanics, structural steel design, concrete structures design and storm drainage design. That covers about 70% of what you learn in getting a civil engineering degree.

Construction Site

Description of the people who work or visit the area regularly or from time to time and how often they’re there at construction site. I was so glad to find this — A construction site is an area of many operation . From start a construction project may many people involved : Engineering ,Designers, Architects ,Excavators ,pavers, metal workers ,carpenters ,Plumbers ,Electricians, Floorers ,door and window installers ,Appliance installers, IT and Cable installers, Painters ,Inspectors ,landscapers, fence makers and. . . . . . . . Most visitor and daily or in each operation visitor are the project managers ,which they should supervising the all operation step by step to get inspection pass for other level of operation . It’s one of the most major operation that a lot of people are involve with.

Construction Project

Definition of the real time. I think I found an answer. When the company I work for brings an asset into a shipyard for repairs (or signs a contract for new construction) we have a schedule. This schedule is an estimate. The real time to finish the project is the number of days from the time work began to the time work was completed. The actual date of completion is not always the same as the estimated date of completion (it rarely is). This means that the real length of the project mainly differs from the estimated length of the project. Some contracts are written to penalize the yard if the construction job takes longer than the contract schedule. (This penalty is called demurrage and is charged in $/day – as specified in the contract. ) Real project time vs. Estimated project time is also used by companies to get a feel for how well a construction yard is doing. If the two are typically in the same ballpark I know that when the yard quotes a time and cost for a certain project that I can be pretty sure that this quote is reasonable. If a yard consistently has much longer real times than estimated times I know that they are either short on man-power or are very optimistic with their quotes. Real time typically does not take weather days into account. Real days would be the number of days (including weekends, holidays and days the yard is shut down due to inclement weather) since the project began, but working time is the number of days since the project began MINUS the days the yard must close.
