Professional

In a career spanning over twelve years in transportation engineering, as a chartered and professional registered civil engineer, I have managed many major multidisciplinary transportation engineering projects, ranging from developing concept plan to execution. My expertise also includes project planning and cost control; management of personnel; public–private partnership (PPP) projects and health and safety coordination. In addition to all stages of projects execution- from outline concepts, surveys, assessments and presentations, through manual or computer aided detail design, to contract documentation and construction management. My strongest expertise is transportation structures, e.g. bridges, railways, viaducts and flyovers.
