So i have started my new job in the Civil Engineering Sq. Its cool and I am excited. I am working over in the plans section, so we creat the project packages and manage the projects as they go on, a cradle to grave type setup.

I have three projects that i am working on. A fire escape stairway, refacading a building, and a parking lot pavement job. At face value they seem to be no big deal right. Well the fire escape stairway requirements blew up and now we have to bring to some mezzanines up to fire code as well, which once we do that there will be no hvac in those rooms, so we will have to fix that and probobly add electrical. :rolleyes: The refacading of the building sounds like no big deal, but after looking over the project, we have to add motorized vent fans and add bathrooms to the place. I haven't looked at the pavement job yet. Hopefully that won't have a tone of stuff involved with it.

Just feeling very overwhelmed and very unprepaired. :sad: I have no idea how I am supose to go about doing my job, and can't really seem to get any direction from anybody. Pluss i haven't been to my formal training yet. I know I will get it, in due time but I don't want to wait around for that.

well thats because its the corp and they have become pretty much useless. we have contracted the corp to do some work for us and it has been the bigest pain on the face of the planet. pluss they rairly do QA before they have a building turned over to the customer.
