To Whom It May Concern:

I am a Civil Engineer-board passer. I worked as a Quantity Surveyor and Estimator with main contractors and subcontractors like Cladtech International, Multiforms, Sobha group, Specialized Aluminum, and Associated Construction (ASCON group). I have stayed and worked in UAE for more than 10 years.

My duties as Quantity Surveyor mainly works on comparison of IFC/Approved drawings and Tender Drawings for the items tendered to establish potential variations and verify the Contract BOQ and the budget. Coordinating with the Estimation, technical and Purchase department to ensure that considered items are within the budget. Preparing BOQ as per the approved drawings. Preparing payment application to be submitted to contractors and payment certificate for our sub-contractors, and submitting variations etc.

My duties as an Estimator includes; pricing of new projects such as reading specifications, drawings, Boq, sending inquiries of materials like aluminum systems, glass, accessories and other materials required to fulfill the project requirement. I am also coordinating with the design department, fabrication, execution, logistics for their inputs to ensure precise pricing of Tenders.

To summarize, I am enclosing a copy of my Curriculum Vitae for your review and I hope that you will consider my application. Should my qualification and experience equal your requirement I am more than willing to meet with you.
