What Are The Different Jobs in Construction?

A construction project requires a number of professionals with a diverse range of skills to complete. Here are some of them who are critical to its success:

Building Service Engineers

Building service engineers ensure that the structure is more than just its walls and roof. They ensure that it is outfitted with everything the residents need to remain comfortable. This includes heating, cooling, ventilation and water systems as well as the design that can accommodate them. They are also known as electrical and mechanical engineers.

Building Surveyors

The job of building surveyors is to provide advice related to the property and its construction. They are responsible for several tasks but their main one is to report on the condition of the under construction building. This includes required repair and maintenance work.

Civil, Geotechnical, and Structural Engineers

All 3 of these engineers are essential in ensuring that a construction project’s design is applicable. For instance, structural and civil engineers work on the technical side of the design either on or off site to ensure they are used properly.

Structural engineers work on the infrastructure by ensuring that the structure has a strong core or inner framework. Similarly, geotechnical engineers work on the foundation and oversee work on it.

Manager

The construction manager oversees the entire construction project from start to finish and they may also be responsible for managing a single project with other managers. The scale of their responsibilities depends on the scale of the project and how complex it is.

Managers also oversee budgeting, progress and construction planning. In the planning phase, they have to decide the material they need to use, schedule employees and create a schedule for the project. Needless to say, they have to remain in touch with everyone who is involved along with the client which means they are on call 24/7 in case something goes wrong.

Estimator

As the name implies, an estimator calculated the cost of the labor, materials and how much money a project will need till completion. They do this using specific metrics and know everything about the projects they work on. 

While they do use sophisticated software to aid them, they also keep in touch with the rest of the team and third party organizations to maintain a tally of all costs involved.

 Expeditor

The expeditor working on the construction site manages the materials that come from the supplier for the project. They are responsible for determining what equipment is needed, order them and ensure they are delivered in a timely manner.

Needless to say this professional has to be organized to ensure that the flow of material is not compromised in any way. To ensure this they work closely with suppliers and companies.

Construction Worker

Construction workers drive each project and are the ones who get their hands dirty to make it a reality. This includes demolition work to break down old structures and work on new ones according to specified requirements. They also operate heavy machinery onsite and perform standard tasks on the construction site.

Besides these, they must also be able to read the blueprints they need to follow to create a structure and collaborate with supervisors and other team members.  This collaboration is usually on a large scale and necessary for everyone involved. It can also go a long way in keeping everyone safe onsite.

OSHA 10 Hour Construction Training 

If you are an entry level construction worker, you need to sign up for OSHA 10 Hour Construction Training program first. The training will make you eligible to work on a construction site and ensure you remain safe from common health and safety hazards at the same time.

Some of the topics covered in the course include hazard recognition, prevention, abatement and avoidance. Besides these, students will also learn about OSHA standards when it comes to the responsibilities of employers and worker rights. OSHA recommends that all construction personnel undergo additional training which is specific to the site they are working on.
