Site Engineers Manual

Site engineers operate in an increasingly technological and legalistic environ-
ment. It is hoped that this book will provide them with a road map to guide them

through that complex journey. Although this book is essentially for site engineers,
some basic design information has been included where appropriate.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my erstwhile Wimpey colleagues
for their help in launching this project and also to express my appreciation to those
whose expertise has enhanced the quality of this latest edition.

Quality, safety, completion on time and profi tability are essential ingredients of a
successful contract. Provided these targets are met then both client and contractor
will be satisfied.
Much has been written on the need for quality assurance (QA). For many, the
means to achieve satisfactory quality has become unnecessarily synonymous with
excessive bureaucracy typifi ed by overburdening paperwork. It is unfortunate that
little emphasis has been placed on the need for well-educated, trained and 
dedicated people to achieve these objectives.
The term quality assurance has been used in recent times to describe the 
management process by which appropriate quality can be achieved. Definitions proliferate.
