As a site engineer, you must have a minimum knowledge of the tools used in the construction site. In this post, I am trying to write with the intention to make it as a go-to option for all of us.
Sometimes we know the tool but don’t know the name of them in English. We hope we all face this at least once in our life. The below list is a collective effort.
If you know some tools or have images that you think might be helpful for all of us, kindly let us know in the comment section. so we can add it here.
Let’s learn together (Don’t forget to share)
