It has deepened my knowledge of architecture and polished my sense of designing too. I am well versed with software applications needed to carry out designing and coordination of the same and I can successfully handle customized house designing projects.

Hoping for a positive reply from you in this consideration and look forward to have a personal interaction with you. Enclosed are resume, specimen designs and experience certificates.

Thank you,
