An Overview on Some of the Work Coverage of Civil Contractors

November 22, 2018

At a new road or railway linkage, civil contractors are getting their bearings. The project is huge, so far-reaching that it reaches all the way to a local airport. A new transportation hub is taking shape, and it needs support. It's an exciting prospect, with countless opportunities for company growth. Implementing every engineering element, as designed by a consulting civil engineer, the scheduled work assignments quickly accumulate.

It is a Schedule-Governed Occupation

Digging a few well-excavated trenches on a single road, a VESI accredited (Victoria Electricity Supply Industry) team talks to council members and the local authorities. Permits are granted, the excavators are dispatched, and the job gets done. Moving up a rung on the industry ladder, we arrive at the CCF structured guidelines. That's another acronym. It stands for the Civil Contractors Federation, an organization that gathers its members under one infrastructure developing umbrella. As part of the federation, its participants become recognized as capable civil construction professionals. Now, instead of taking care of the occasional independently scheduled civil engineering project, the member company becomes known as an accredited task scheduling executive.

Part of the Civil Construction Heirarchy

Granted, civil contractors aren't engineers. That's a job that's reserved for the consulting civil engineer, a true executive. Still, CCF sanctioned contractors do carry some clout. Instead of that limited scope, where someone conversed with a local authority, the team members are now a part of a massive project. They respond to scheduled assignments, dig trenches for road and bridge work, dispatch excavators when civil construction projects enter new phases, and they generally assume a far more intricate set of duties. Beyond those work duties, there are material procurement meetings to attend. Outside, public environs matters are never an obstacle here, not when civil contractors are working on high-voltage power cables, pressurized water mains lines, and primary infrastructure branches. The small twigs and lesser branches of service maintaining and installing work are still on the work docket, of course, but so are the jobs that impact huge parcels of community supporting land.

Thousands of employees and consulting engineers thrive under CCF representation. They address bridge-building projects, highway expansion and renovation work, and high scope work circumstances that go far beyond trenching services. As part of a larger whole, an ability to work with other contractors is essential. And we're not just talking about a management meeting or materials conference. No, civil contractors have to be flexible and adaptable, and they must be able to slot their services into a project's scheduled assignment spots, as allotted by a head consulting civil engineer.
