Lolz.. .funny u
So why do we have structural engineer


We simply overlook site supervisor because it doesn't sound like a "big name" here...Arch, Civil, Mech and even Service Eng all have their place on site. There's no "general lord" over all!

Good point there!
However, most of the building professionals in government agencies are ill-equipped. Many of whom only have shady knowledge about their individual professions.

There is no doubt, the construction industry is growing per day, equipping these government agencies with first-hand knowledge would have helped in correcting foul plays in the built environment professions.

God will bless you...you must be an insider!

Just asking, what would be the professional fee architectural design of a 2 or 3 bedroom bungalow?

Guy why not tell us the truth. You want to pull down architects and elevate your business. Am an architect that has worked with big time construction companies. You would have used the word some draft men. If you must know architects are trained to design with specifications, numbers, precision in mind. So be careful of what you are blowing out of your mouth just to make money.

Half of the contributors here cannot distinguish a civil from a structural engineer , or either of both from a building engineer.
Architects, building engineers, structural engineers , civil engineers.... thier specialties and core competencies are distinct but thier roles are often lumped together.

Nigeria structural engineers , does not have any experience at all, see d work of a structural is to achieve every design that d architect put down, pls go dubai and see a lot thank
. Do you really want to compare building codes of both nations......haba......the work of a structural engineer is to agree with the architect on the best way to achieve the design following all safety precautions. If you're architect don't go out there to design something that even you don't know how to achieve it because you want to design and give the structural guy sleepness nights. In the construction industry the architect is the team leader followed by the civil/structural engineer and so on and so forth. So if you're worth your salt then your team is worth theirs too.

All these "building codes" excuses. Unless you agree that you are deficient, you can never improve. Most Nigerian engineers are poorly trained which is not a surprise seeing that most lecturers reprint the handouts they were taught with 25 years ago and regurgitate the same out-dated information to their students. Is there any wonder why they compete with roadside artisans for building contracts?

Believe me, the UAE building codes and safety standards are one of the most advanced in the world and the inspections here very stringent. So claims of different building codes are just lame excuses .

So in view of this, what advice will you give someone currently studying civil Engineering in Nigeria?

Be imaginative, go the extra mile, make the library your second home and study beyond what is expected of you. I studied in a Nigerian university myself and today, I head a multinational team. I am not an engineer though, but work in the health sector.

. Who gives lame excuses!!! Any one studying Civil Engineering in Nigeria should do that which is required of him/her to become a graduate and become successful in the chosen career. You have to do some PP during holidays to know what's happening in the industry as a student and what's the trend. Imagination/creativity rests on the individual but the onus is the cost of putting up such structures/edifice/aesthetics as it depends on the clients. It's best as an Engineer you know the taste of your client and work towards it.

Please help me out here...

i walked into a construction site today and the site engineer and bricklayers were arguing on where the well should have been located.

the bricklayers said it shouldnt be where it is while the Engineer claims he knows his job and the soak away will have no future effect on the well...

what do you think is wrong with this location of the well and do you think the Engineer is right?

The bricklayers are right. Am an agricultural engineer. there is a minimum distance used as standard between subsurface water source and septic tanks and graves. The effects may not be much, had it been the septic tank is even concrete cast throughout without pores or voids.
