It is well said that Civil Engineer should not occupy himself with efforts to perfect architecturally, for taste is always susceptible to change, but to conserve always in its form and decoration, the character of solidity, which is proper.
Today, we would like to highlight key points that an Engineer should ensure through proper coordination before working on any real life projects.
Plan the structures and drainage systems that can hold up against extreme weather events.
Ensure sufficient Bearing capacity of the soil prior to design/erection of any temporary or permanent structure.
Mention critical design assumptions in the drawings which can impact integrity of structure.
Plan for all types of accidental load that could impact in the near or distant future.
Plan all aspects of construction cycle step by step in design stage and further analyze the impacts of new phases on previous ones during construction process.
Protect the utility infrastructure say gas, electrical and other utility lines to avoid super-heated conflagrations.
Consider it, as a significant issue at any stage; if it’s acknowledged, there is insufficient margin in the structure.
