Computer skills
I was working on computer science 1988, I found my work on computer very satisfactory for the reason that I had created a full range of programs on excel and Quattro pro spreadsheets. These programs makes me save a lot’s of time in estimating the quantities for the infrastructure Networks. Lately I am doing some programs for price estimation using Excel also I am using CCS software in pricing the tenders.
Computer programs list for infrastructure tenders purpose :
1- Average depth for Sanitary/ Storm water Networks.
2- Bedding Calculation for Sanitary/ Storm water Networks.
3- Manhole Calculation for Sanitary/ Storm water/ Water supply/ Telephone Networks.
4- Cut/ Fill calculation for Road Network.
5- Cut/ Fill calculation for Housing projects.
6- Price estimation analysis for each item of the Tender in Both Excel/CCS
