Costel retains the services of academically and professionally qualified personnel in her team and has a record of wide range of project scope within which they have rendered services, some of which are highlighted in the Curriculum Vitae of the Professional Personnel.
Costel, while playing cost and programme management roles on Client’s projects ensures that projects are delivered on scheduled time, within planned costs and in compliance with approved technical specifications.
