By doing this the relationship between engineers and owners or prospective owners of homes, villas, apartments, multi-storeyed buildings etc could be strengthened. Engineers are the backbone of development and technology.

“During my time everything was in books but now everything is digitalized, but as an Engineer, we need to be very careful while finalizing the final plan of construction. You should note that because of your passion, you are all civil engineers. Passion is very much needed for someone to reach greater heights. The role of a civil engineer is a must in building a strong nation. We can do it- and You Engineers can do it. Engineers are needed for the growth and infrastructure – without the help of engineers, architects and contractors, you can’t create an area’s infrastructure. My sincere congratulations to all the award winners, and I wish them all success in their endeavours” added Er Yadiyal.
