Project Engineer


A job as a Construction Project Engineer will see you coordinating all on-site engineering activities, to ensure that the project’s time and budget constraints are met. When it comes to the construction and engineering sector, Project Engineers are a crucial piece of the puzzle.

Without them, there is no one to supervise the preliminary stages of the build, and ensure the ball is rolling on what ultimately becomes the overall construction project.

Key responsibilities include the assessment of production costs and other important data related to any given project, using this data to review preliminary reports and revise time schedules and budgets accordingly, and generally overseeing the quality of work that’s being produced on site.

From a creative perspective, a Project Engineer will typically collaborate with architects on revising and refining structural blueprints to ensure the building has everything it needs.
