Mr. Duarte:

I would advise you not to make site visits "on your own" without an
agreement with your employer as it creates a potential liability condition.  I
agree that it is desirable for you to make site visits, and should be
incouraged, however only with the approval of your employer.  As a
young engineer, some contractors will try to take advantage of your
inexpierience by suggesting non-conforming constrction solutions which
do not conform to the design or actually violate the building code. 
Remember that although many time the contractor is very knowledgable
and may have good suggestions the engineer of record is the one
responsible for the strucutural design and interpreting the code.

Good Luck;
