Links & Resources for Construction Engineers

So I have been working on developing a linkable library to resources that I typically use in my daily activities - I have built this section to provide a clearinghouse for the tools that I have built, used and referred to in my 3 decades of civil engineering practice. In here, you will find all sorts of resources that you might find helpful in solving a particular problem or issue you are dealing with. Topics I have maintained toolboxes for include: • Piling Resources • Sitework Surveying • Construction Documentation • Plan & Constructability Reviews • Job Start-up Planning Tools
