Pros: team work
Cons: not enough in depth training on the eds and an inadequate server system.
A typical day at work is to process incoming transmittals from the engineering firm over the project and to make certain the documentation is then transmitted to the appropriate contractor for the particular phase of the job, process incoming submittals and RFIs and follow up on and close these out once they are resolved. I have to make certain all drawings and documents are up to date and generate a hard copy library of all current and superseded documents. This was my first experience on a large construction project and it was very challenging learning a new document system and struggling to keep up with the demands of the job but everyone pitched in to assist and we worked as a real team. The electronic document system was new to all of us but we learned it together and still got the job done. The team I work with is exceptional and I have enjoyed working with all of them. I have the most patient and understanding construction project manager. He saw the difficulties we all were having with the system and helped all of us to work through the hardships.
