My total work experience accounts for 15 years out of which the last ten have been in the construction industry. I thoroughly enjoy this industry. I get extremely excited as a building starts taking shape. The construction industry is a highly project oriented industry. Scheduling of projects is a very crucial performance factor in this industry. It is important that projects be delivered in time and within the specified budget.
