Q: What is it like working as a Construction Superintendent?

January 2015
"Education and Experience."
Construction Superintendent:
Safety is paramount. A clean site is a productive site. Be fair but firm. Get as much education as possible, go to night school is need be. Pay close attention to what is happening and ask a lot of questions. Master something "NEW" everyday. Get Certified, preferably a Gold Seal through the Canadian Construction Association. Plan ahead and go into detail. Review drawings, specifications and contract scope of work well in advance. Check drawings and especially dimensions. It is better to change a line on the drawing than to cut and core concrete. Be mindful of costs and productivity. Try to provide 3 solutions to every challenge.

""It is always now""
Construction Superintendent:
-Don't expect anyone to do anything they're supposed to do; the way they're supposed to do it, without supervision...especially if it will impact you. That goes for co-workers, trade partners, supervisors, inspectors and everybody in between. -Don't all

"Give it your all."
Construction Superintendent:
Work ethic is most important, give as much of your time and mentoring young carpenters!
