The duration of four months of training that I spent at Temi Construction not only fed my academic intellectuality, but it has also enabled me as a student to be part of the Estimating department, understanding the importance of the principles of work ethics and the importance of producing quality work.
I have personally become alert of the pre-tender planning stage prior upon submission of a competitive tender, the relationships maintained between the sub-contractors, tender buyer, suppliers and estimators. The vitality of a vendor list and the sequence of works that have to be done as soon as the tender is advertised to when the tender is submitted.
My future plan as a student is to get my B-Tech in Quantity Surveying and to then work as an Estimator at Temi Construction, thus gaining an advanced knowledge of the software used to price the Bill of Quantities. I’m proud to be part of the internship and the skills developments program provided by Temi.
