A career in the construction industry, work in interesting places, tough jobs, and interesting people — all add up to an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
Experience working in diverse roles — contractor, engineer, consultant, expert, adjudicator, arbitrator and mediator — has provided, and still provides the stimulus for growth through teamwork.
The opportunities afforded me along the career path, and the knowledge received from so many peers, clients and co-workers, have been fantastic.
While I was in many successful ventures, I know that nobody “starts” anything on their own — it all depends on teamwork and sharing ideas, energy and drive with others.
I hope this blog will trigger ideas that benefit the reader in some way: starting a career, building a project, developing a company, optimizing a solution, or resolving issues.
The objectives are: keeping things interesting, giving a perspective view “from the field” of the construction industry, lessons learned, and hopefully having some fun along the way.
For example, here are a few topics to touch on:
starting out with a degree and little else
changing jobs, changing countries
growing in responsible charge
starting out your own company
building a company from scratch
keeping up the momentum
analysis of construction projects
scheduling and costs
fundamentals of presentation and proof of results
check lists for analysis of delay
early independent review of opposing analyses
news items that stimulate comment and ideas
Projects, new delivery methods
Well that’s a start. I think there is a lot I could get into. Please join me in the fascinating world of blogging.
