i need is codes for aggregates and soil..inwhich website i can get for free of cost?

Younus Ali says:

Lakshmi Priya
first of all you can go for Autocad Civil for going into Construction field
if you are capable enough you can expand your talent by 3d max, Auto lisp, Dyna Cad, Staad Pro, Primavera etc etc.
