Construction Videos

 Dear Friends ,

A picture is better than a thousand words . You already know this. Right ?

Going a step further , I have experienced that a video is much much better in explaining the technical concepts .

Specially , when it comes to the field of construction management , the importance of the videos is quite clear.

Because then you are actually seeing and perceiving the actual events as happening on the construction site.

With this in mind , the author has taken a decision to upload the videos which have been shot during the class room teachings or during the actual site visits with the students.

The videos, shall definitely provide you with a different perspective on the construction.

These videos can be watched on my channel

I hope you shall appreciate this initiative .

also your valuable suggestions on improving the content of this blog.
