Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Muhammad you are absolutely right this forum is made to help all planners in our community.

People like Gary don’t understand this. Most of the planners  who write that sort of comments spend most of their office time on internet and rest of the time doing some design plans for desktop surveys.

 If you don’t have any knowledge how do you share something!!! But can give loads of lame excuses.

I hope this example help you. Most people in this forum share their experience because they have knowledge

Gary its a shame that people dont help each other i am not ask for the programme i am just asking for the list of activities 

List of activities does not belongs to any programme and it is always good to share your experience and best practices you have used.

Those who not share are mostly P6 jockey and I appreciate and salute all those project professional who are helping planning community without thinking about doesn't know how to do their job to stay in a job which they don't deserve,feel it is giving away their experience for free" they all are mean little buggers and they should not be on this forum

Most people on this forum don't share their programmes.

I personally never do, because I feel the programmes I create are the property of my client, and not mine to share.

Other people never do becuase they feel it is giving away their experience for free, when they normally charge for it.

Others don't because they feel it is helping someone who doesn't know how to do their job to stay in a job which they don't deserve.

Some people do share their work but not many, so don't be annoyed or suprised if you don't get what you are looking for.

There are high rise building such as Water Tank Tower with a revolving Restaurant on Top, Guard House Tower Building around a perimeter fence of a Military Compound, Tower buildings such as in Dubai.

The list of activities depends on what is required by the Contract Project.
