Job Description: I construct buildings. This starts with meetings with Architects where we working through different concept designs, determining which will be the least cost and the easiest to construct. Then we start more detailed structural analysis of the building using engineering software programs. We can then complete detailed design of structural components, figuring out the best way to assemble components. I also go to site and supervise the project as its being constructed.
