AECOM is involved in one of the most critical Subway Transit Projects and I’m one of those few Interns who has been given the opportunity to work on the Field Office. From the moment I started, I knew it’s going to be a painstaking and challenging Three months of my life and I was right.
Reviewing Preliminary Schedule was my 1st Assignment. “Super Easy” I boasted! Soon I realized, to review Schedule, I’ll have to study 800 Conformed Drawings and 2500 pages of Contract Specification. Through this, I learned the most basic yet Important Civil Engineering skill i.e. “How to comprehend the Construction Drawings”. Any assignment given afterwards indeed became “Super Easy” because I knew about every aspect of the Project thoroughly by the time I finished 1st assignment.
I’m sure this skill will prove to be pivotal in becoming the successful Construction Project Manager that I aspire to be.
