Section of the company worked
Tasks were assigned at Thindigua construction site in Sydney. The tasks involved supervision of the tendering of the upcoming projects, construction works, learning and taking part in the site meetings.
Flow in the section
In order to work effortlessly and increase operational flow, the below protocol was implemented.
A site engineer provides supervision in the planning, co-ordination and instruction of technical features of construction ventures. A site engineer's starring role is critical to a building project: they play a part in several accountabilities encompassing resolving practical issues, providing advice, framing reports, appraising design and supervision building progress.
A Project Manager is dedicated in the turf of Management. Project managers have the liability of the programming, procurement of resources and execution of a project, in any ground of engineering.
A site agent is a member of amenity provider in a building site. He/ She oversees the general building works. The site agent executes the survey works, read out and interprets the engineering drawings and gives directions to the foreman.
A foreman is a skilled supervisor responsible working with site engineer, the contractor, the project manager and the client. The main task is to employ skilled workers for definite work and the laborers. The foreman focuses in overall management of all activities on site for timely project completion.
Masons and laborers.
The group encompasses of masons, carpenters, steel fixers and daily laborers and are out sourced by foreman and work under strict instructions.
Areas explored during the attachment
Evaluation and interpretation of engineering drawings.
Engineering drawings are graphical lingos utilized by engineers and other mechanical personnel linked with the production line of duty. The tenacity of engineering drawing is to guide in detail the conceptions and facts required for the building. Engineering drawings presented in the Thindigua building site includes; Structural, Electrical installation and plumbing drawings. The site engineer offered support in reading and interpretation of the engineering drawings. This task was executed in the course of the building of the columns, beams and slabs. The drawings assisted in steel fixing, a critical stage in the course of building of the structure.
(Name of the company) on a regular basis bids for developments. Although I was not used to tendering, the development manager got keen consideration in overseeing out needed backing to grasp conception of e-tendering. There after I enthusiastically was engaged in tendering process of the forthcoming development in conjunction with other senior Quantity surveyors of the company. Later then, I prepared questionnaire regarding design, timely supply and scope of work. In addition, I showed up on the meeting with noticeable corporations where the congress briefed about the bidding process and stuffs to be contained within the lodging tendering.
Excavation is the utmost significant segment of building. It symbolizes to the art of getting rid of soil or rock from its initial position, usually in preparation for building footings, basements, and concealed amenity lines. Excavated soil necessary for backfill and the grouping fill is stock up on the site for later use. The unwanted soil was removed from the construction site.
Excavation works were executed by the workers under the direction of the site agent. The distance of the base was decided by the engineer in the site after the examination of the kind of soil. The depth of the underground tank was 3350mm.
Concrete formwork and concrete works.
Concrete formwork is a lesser building, utilized as a mold for a building. Fresh concrete is triggered to flow into the mold and set in the necessary shape and size. The formwork organizational structure is removed when the concrete, fortifies and gains acceptable métier. In Thindigua building site, formworks were placed by use of both steel sheets and timber sheets.I was actively engaged in the supervision of erection of the form work to ensure there are no flaws. The size of the formwork is governed by on the size of the structural elements such as beams, columns and slabs. Formworks were erected using plumb bob, try square and spirit levels for accuracy.
Figure 2.18.1: concreteform work
Concrete is a uniform mixture of cement, sand, ballast and water at a constant rate. Fresh concrete is malleable and is able to be moulded easily into whichever shape. Concrete utilized in forming structural components was class 25 (Ratio 1:2:4) 1 bag of cement, 2bags of sand and 4 bags of ballast and coarse aggregate. The mix was prepared using a concrete mixer and transported using cranes, steel basins and wheelbarrows.
Concrete is significant weaker in tension than in compression. Its ductile strength is roughly 15% of its compressive métier. This means that concrete is generally cast-off in amalgamation with steel strengthening that offers the tensile strength in concrete member. The flawless unification between steel and concrete is owed to the thermal increase of both constituents being the same.

Masonry are works that are performed by laying building units such as stone, brick and mortar as the binding material. Supervision of laying masonry was done to confirm that the mortar was in the necessary ratio and the wall was at the requisite level. Distribution wires were positioned at alternate courses to guarantee even circulation of stresses in the wall.
Site Inspection and site meetings.
During the whole period of the internship, I was present in site meetings and was engaged in site inspection exercises. The site meeting were intended to update the customer on the headway of the development, analysis of the timelines and project assessments. I was engaged in drafting of site progress reports. The site inspection exercises were executed to guarantee that the project was being embarked on as per the stipulated requirements as per the Engineering drawings. These practices equipped me with communication and interrelation skills of the field work.
