Position Descriptions: 

 Field Engineer

The Field Engineer works directly for the Superintendent. The position may be used as an apprenticeship for the Project Superintendent's job, as part of the training leading to the Project Engineer's role, or to gain field experience for future assignments in estimating, management, etc. As such, the role of the Field Engineer is flexible to fit the capabilities and background of the individual, as well as the nature of the project. The prime responsibility is to help the superintendent in any and all ways possible, and in so doing, to take advantage of the Superintendent's knowledge and experience to further the individual's own progress. Although the majority of a Field Engineer's time will be spent in the field, there are some duties which will require work in the field office.

  Project Engineer
 The project Engineer is the chief engineer on the project. He or she is responsible for all on-site project administration. He or she will report to the Project Manager or the Project Superintendent as agreed to in the organizational set up.
  Area Superintendent
  The position of Area Superintendent is used primarily on larger projects. An Area Superintendent will have responsibility for a specific geographical area or craft phase of the project. His or her duties are similar to the Project Superintendent, but will be limited to his or her assigned portion of the project. He or she will report to the Project Superintendent.
  Project Superintendent
 The Project Superintendent is the company's representative assigned to responsibility and authority for daily coordination and directing of the project so that it is safe, within budget, on schedule, to the company's quality standards, and to the customer's satisfaction. To accomplish this, he or she must conceptualize a plan on how he or she is going to construct the project, and must ensure that the daily and weekly activities are consistent with this plan.

The experience and capabilities of the project superintendent will directly influence the delegation of authority and responsibility by the Project Manager to the Project Superintendent. The Project Manager and Project Superintendent will work as a complementary team where the sum of their efforts is greater than their individual efforts. The Project Manager will generally concentrate on long-range planning, problem solving, and logistics so that the project's Superintendent can concentrate most of his or her time on the daily and short-range direction of the project.

  Project Manager
 The Project Manager is the company's “management representative” responsible for the safe completion of his or her projects within budget, on schedule, to the company's quality standards, and to the customer's satisfaction. It is his or her responsibility to initiate any action required to achieve the above objectives and ensure that all project activities are consistent with company policy.

The Project Manager's duties will vary as required to support the Project Superintendent and other personnel assigned to the project. His or her first responsibility is to increase the effectiveness of the Superintendent and his or her staff. Generally, his or her role will concentrate more on the long-term planning, scheduling, the identification of future “roadblocks” and “pitfalls”, and the solving of these problems prior to their impact on the project. He or she is responsible for ensuring that all logistical support is completed in a timely manner so that the Superintendent can concentrate on the daily and weekly direction of the company's forces and coordination of subcontractors.

  The Estimator is responsible for advanced quantity survey of direct hire work such as concrete and carpentry work. This position will teach more advanced estimating procedures and the basics of pricing direct hire work.
 Office Engineer
  The Office Engineer acts as the assistant to the Project Engineer, if one is assigned to the job. On jobs which do not have a Project Engineer, the Office Engineer will report directly to the Project Superintendent or Project Manager. Responsibilities of this position are similar to the Project Engineer; however, requirements of the job or the experience of the individual preclude him/her from taking total responsibility. The position of Office Engineer is used as a training position leading to Project Engineer, Superintendent or Estimator. Depending on the size and complexity of the project, there may be one or more Office Engineers.
