Job description / Role

Employment: Full Time

Managing construction staff: this includes working with and communicating with teams. Resident engineers make schedules for staff, watch over their work to ensure efficiency and accuracy, make sure everyone is safe, and offer advice on day to day activities at the site. They may be asked to lead both project and progress meetings, coordinate with subcontractors and consultants, and recommend employees for promotions and bonuses.

Obtaining materials: they calculate costs of everything from construction materials to equipment, as well as ensure these supplies are available throughout the process. They also check the quality of materials and equipment used during construction.

Planning for construction: they create a project schedule and look for obstacles that may delay the project. They also help plan the construction by looking at maps and blueprints, as well as going to the field to survey the site.

Evaluating work throughout construction: they make sure everything is going smoothly throughout the building process, including ensuring project specifications and deadlines are being met, inspecting regularly for problems, and solving ways to fix the issues that come up.

Documenting and reporting on construction: resident engineers must also write reports, keep detailed field notes, and log activities daily. They also take pictures of the progress of the construction, as well as track, organize, and update documents


Engineering and mathematics: knowledge of the principles of engineering and mathematics is necessary not only for the day-to-day duties of a resident engineer, but also to obtain a license to work as an engineer. Their expertise is required to inspect construction progress and provide solutions to issues that come up during the construction process.

Software: a resident engineer may need to be familiar with various types of software including AutoCAD and Site Manager, as well as other computer applications such as Microsoft Office.

Documents and maps: a resident engineer must not only be able to read and interpret various plans, blueprints, and site maps, but must also be able to provide suggestions and follow plans during construction. They should also be familiar with contract paperwork, keeping meticulous daily logs, and preparing reports.
