Bidding manager - Ali Moossajee

I’m a Kenyan student currently in my final year of my undergraduate degree at Taylor’s University. I grew up in a construction family and therefore due to my exposure, developed a natural passion for it. Through my various experiences in university I have taken various leadership opportunities in student organisations that have driven me to wanting to be a leader in my professional life too. I therefore joined this competition as a starting point to achieving my dream of leading an organisation fighting at the top of the construction industry.

As a team, we have worked extremely hard so far in the competition and therefore are extremely excited to be part of the finalists, amongst such great talents from all around the world. We look forward to the upcoming challenge and strive to achieve our best.

We would like to acknowledge Taylor’s University and the Head of School of Architecture, Building and Design for sponsoring us to join the competition and Mr Leong Boon Tik, our beloved lecturer and tutor for our team who led us through to becoming one of the top 6 finalists. We are proud and honoured to be the first team in Malaysia to be the Top 6 Finalist in CIOB GSC in the history since it was launched in 2014.
