Anwar Syed- Mechanical Engineer
Quotation Marks
My Coolest Project:
I led a mechanical & electrical (M&E) construction team from the design-builder’s work stage to commissioning on a mega project. On this project I supervised six engineers, three general foremen, and 15 assistant general foremen, with a peak manpower of 800+. The five-year underground project was comprised of 15 four-story buildings and 30 parking garages. Completed in 1995, the project was achieved by working in day/night shifts.
