The common materials that are seen everyday on a construction project are concrete, slab dowel baskets and base. Each of these materials can be most seen on highway and road construction. This is often taken for granted since it is in our everyday life. Each of these materials were gathered from a heavy civil project in the greater San Diego area. When collecting my information in the field we gathered existing quantities of concrete, slab dowel baskets, and aggregate. After all of this information is compiled and sent to the project manager hopefully this will result in a decrease in lost profits later on in the project. Although, working for a heavy civil contractor in the Southern California region that has more than proven themselves to be a reliable contractor there is always room for improvement. Even if this result in a small gains in profits for the summer this will be an overall success for the jobsite because the project manager will hopefully have a better understanding of the total profit lose and save money over the length of the project.
