A design enginer enters a project at the initial stage itself and after a lot of thought,effort and time, he prepares the structural scheme, calculations and drawing. A checking engineer, on the other hand, enters the project much later and he should give due respect to the scheme and design brief of the design engineer. It is true that a design engineer should aim at an error-free work. But no engineer is perfect and a few errors may easily creep up in the work. It is the purpose of checking engineer to appreciate the good points of design and also to seek out its weak points so that the structure gets the benefits of his checking. The aim of checking of a structural design is not to demolish it but to improve it and make it error-free.
