Technicalities That Go Into Big Building Projects; An Engineer Gives Break Down
Wontumi's mansion, which is under construction, is a huge project, and it takes a lot of expertise for such a project to be completed. Speaking to YEN.com.gh, Paul, an engineer and a surveyor who works with the Lands Commision, gave a breakdown of how such huge structures are put up. Paul said:
When it comes to those huge buildings or projects, there is supposed to be a surveyor on the ground throughout the project. The surveyor has to do setting out and take levels. Before the project begins, the surveyor has to pick out the topography of the land before excavation is done.
Every Step Is Important; You Cannnot Cut Corners
Paul went on to highlight the importance of each engineer and other experts during the project and mentioned that it is necessary for one to have all the experts on the project. He said:
There is a need for a surveyor and a civil engineer to be present and not just the artisans. Some folks go for just the masons, and the masons will pick the steel benders instead of an engineer to be there and supervise the work, which is not advisable for big projects.
Paul advised peeps not to follow the right procedures when putting up structures as it was not safe. He also mentioned that Wontumi's project will cost a lot of money as he would need a lot of experts and technical people on the ground.
