Imran Malik

Project Controls Manager at CH2M Hill

I enjoyed working with Mostafa Mahmood for almost three years on 400-Bed teaching hospital in Ahsa KSA. I must say that I found Mostafa very competent, focused and seasoned cost control engineer. His key responsibilities were monitoring and controlling project total expenditures including verifying and checking of invoices and claims from suppliers, vendor and subcontractors to ensure that all expenditure are captured and properly recorded. He was good resource during preparation of revised schedule after major scope change in project. The most essential activity I could remember for project was preparation of CTC and its monthly updates. He really contributed and provided best estimates of margin for the project manager and home office. Other than that he is very pleasant personality and very good team player. I would love to work with him again and recommend him to anybody who needs a really professional cost control engineer
