As a Civil Engineer by profession, I know how detailed Engineering and Construction is. When making an estimate on a certain project, I have to be careful on the specifications of materials, labor and equipments. Aside from structural, finishing and architectural works are delicate items in construction. This is where you have to be precise and accurate on specifications.When we constructed our church building 4 years ago, I was the Office Engineer in-charge with the estimation, monitoring and purchasing of materials. During the early stage of the construction, my work was as easy as evaluating budget and computing total expenses. But when the architectural furnishing started, my job became demanding. I have to be cautious in purchasing materials that should be within the budget but not sacrificing the quality of our work. and fixtures were one of them. We need a bigger and durable sinks to fit with the need of our church. Something that would last a long time. Shopping for the tiles to match the sink and wall painting was a challenging task also. With some members of the building committee, we went from one home furnishing store to another to find the best deals.
As of the now , our church is 100% satisfactorily completed. Thank God for the knowledge and wisdom poured down on me during the 2 years of its construction.
