Who Am I?

Liton Biswas, the author of aCivilEngineer

Hi, I’m Liton, a construction professional. I have been working in the residential building construction sector since 2004. I served both abroad and here in my home country, Bangladesh. Some of the positions I held during my career are Site Engineer, Project Engineer, Project In-charge, and Project Manager. So I have learned the ins and outs of building construction.

Why Is This Site For?

If you got a civil engineering degree, then it is obvious that you’ve learned everything about construction in your university.

Then, Why another site?

After passing civil engineering, when I first started to serve in construction, I found that there are many things I didn’t find in my textbooks. More than that, workers, who don’t have any engineering degrees, can solve problems quicker than me. And they even know many things that I didn’t find in my academic curriculum.

So, here I share practical tips and tutorials that will accelerate your day-to-day construction activities that you won’t find in your textbooks.

What does that mean for you?

I have spent almost 20 years of my life in the building construction sector. I wanted to share those practical experiences with you. For that, I created this site in 2011.

Unfortunately, I’ve lost everything in 2020 due to my server crash. And I didn’t have a backup. So, I put my hands on building this site again for you. Read my Articles Here.

You can also get my Free Resources Here that I created to make your construction activities easy.
