  • Description


    I have worked very long years on building sites for planning, supervising, building site logistic organisation and adjusting all architectural working drawings and concrete casting. I still sometimes do many building works supervision either as a planner or as a supervisor for my own private renovation projects.
    Parallel to the above I run a small bed and breakfast in a mountainous region in Central Mauritius in Moka.
    As the property is quite big next to a small forest. I am trying to start a garden which calls for creative masonry work where a water pipe network should be installed to start moth growing on the concrete surface
