Personal profile:

I am enthusiastic, committed and reliable person who is willing to work overtime to meet tight project deadlines. By time creating system to avoid waste of production time in the future. I like to work in a team or as a team leader and show my own initiative in finding innovative solutions while learning new skills.

I was lucky to be involved in construction in many different work positions, that came to the aid of better understanding trade aparatus. After many years in construction I can tie togeter therotical, practical and bureaucratic mechanisms all togeter for smoother result. 

I am a qualified welder with a University-level degree in Engineering and six years of experience in civil engineering design. I continually work on improving my professional qualification by training for additional diplomas and certificates.

Work experience:

2021 February - now 

Site manager/on-site engineer 

Euro Standard Solution Ltd. UNIT5, KENNET RD DARTFORD DA1 4QN, UK  

 ESS Steel is a steel manufacture and erecting company with a years of experience in The City of London and its suburban areas. This company observes small individual house support frames for extension, steel lift shaft erections to steel erections ranging in the hundreds tons.

My current company helped me to learn about my role as sub-contractor. I worked on a variety of construction sites that differed in size, area and complexity.

I was involved in steel hip roof frame erections, floor extensions on existing roof slabs to residential building steel frame on existing columns, lift shafts etc.  

I took the role of on-site engineer-supervisor while erecting structures in the center part of the London area. I also worked in the industrial areas on the outskirts of the city. This variety of on-site experience granted me a great opportunity to be introduced to the to the multitude of on-site regulations, deeper building construction understanding and ethics.

I increased my understanding of the bureaucratical necessity to compose a plan of action and smooth transfer of that plan in practice; furthermore, deepening my practical skills in a leadership position. I found my own way of combining people together and methods of applying moral and mental support. The most important lesson I had the privilege to learn was the planning and preparation of a contiguous work scheme, that increases man-hour/productivity index without exhausting physically or mentally over long periods of work.

Nevertheless, I mastered electrode welding skills while participating in situ on the steel structure element, fixing or manufacturing. I tied, offload, sottered and navigate thousands tons of steel structures. I was involved in organizing meetings, setting time schedules for steel delivery, steel frame erection and building processes. I was setting the building to level, marking it on site or taking measurements for the future structure.      


2019 April - 2021 February 

Project manager assistant/site manager

MCBULL LTD, 115 Park St, Mayfair, London, W1K 7AP, United Kingdom

I had a great opportunity to work in a Pakistani capital company. This firm is well known in Pakistan as a leading contractor, with more than couple decades of experience in the construction field.

I gained a variety of experiences while working in the McBull LTD. As a result, I have been involved every stage of the construction process.

My first task was to establish a smooth connection between all designing bodies, to ensure that in the construction stage everything would go according to plan. I verify that all necessary documentation is combined, and prepared for the future work and sub-contractors, whilst also allocating time schedules.  

Next, my task was to prepare a virgin site for construction. I collected all underground utility maps and corresponded with the responsible services and discharging of conditions. A fence was built around the site with consideration of future traffic movement. Later, we undertook surveys such as topographical, PAS128, drainage cctv, soil, etc.  

While bureaucratical processes were ongoing I was also searching for sub-contractors such as piling, muck away, lift installers, steel manufactures and erectors, etc.     

My next responsibility was to set out future building on the topographical survey plans and transfer it out on the actual site. So, it would be possible to prepare the mat for the piling rig. At that moment I completely moved from the office to the site and took lead of all processes such as preparing points for the set-out engineer and managing pile drilling works.

Furthermore, the company made the decision to undertake ground works, so my responsibility was to plan foundation pouring, set levels and crop piles, order materials, build up shuttering, manage the steel fixing team and finally the pouring of concrete.

After the capping beam was finished, the formation of the future car parking basement begun. My task was to then establish correct levels and then, the smooth export of the muck from site. After all soil deposit was out, the drainage was laid, and raft was poured. At that point, all levels were clear, so I moved back to the office.

While the team were preparing shattering for basement walls, I then started to calculate quantalities and preparing schedules for steel decking and roof timber; my concern was to minimize redundant materials. When all the structure was planned and placed on order, I finalized quantities for plasterboards, heating system, floors, windows, etc.

In conclusion I want to say that I had unforgettable experience and I am glad to take part in this variety of construction related activities. It allowed me greater depth in my understanding of the full process.
