CIVIL ENGINEERS IN THE PHILIPPINES
What is a Civil Engineer?
A civil engineer is a professional person which is trained and licensed by the law to perform the function of designing the civil aspects, specifically architectural and structural, of the building and supervising the construction or installation of those items.
Civil Engineers are in-charge of structural design and the overall supervision and management of constructions. They are also responsible for safety of the workers and the public safety during construction. Civil engineers must have an engineering degree from a school and must pass a Professional Engineer examination conducted by Professional Regulatory Commission of the Philippines.
Due to the nature of their profession, civil engineers are also known for their great analytical and mathematical capabilities. They are usually responsible for estimating the required resources needed for the building construction and also compute its equivalent cost. Civil engineers are also considered to be good project managers, handling the workflow of construction projects and allocating the right resources at the right time and at the right place.
Do You Need a Civil Engineer?
Yes, you do!
Civil Engineers are required by law to be present at any kind of construction, big and small. The main role of the civil engineer is to guarantee that the building and construction process is safe and conforms to the Philippine code and regulations.
Even a construction company is required to have a licensed civil engineer within their ranks, without which, they cannot be issued a business permit as a construction company.
Small home builders and contractors are also required to hire a civil engineer or to present their works to a civil engineer for approval if they cannot afford one under full-time employment.
Failing to hire a civil engineer in your construction projects may save you some money but the cause will be a lot more. If you hire a foreman to construct your house without a supervision or consultation from a civil engineer, then there is no guarantee that your house conforms to the required structural safety codes and may not be able to withstand strong earthquakes. Exchanging a little sum of money against the safety of your family and ,God forsake, against their lives is not a wise decision to make.
Civil Engineers is required by law to be liable for the structural safety of their projects for up to 15 years. Which means that if your house collapse within that duration, then the civil engineer is liable under the civil code. If a life was spared because of that incident, then the civil engineer can also be liable under the criminal code.
