Greenfield Development and Brownfield Redevelopment

As we talked about the infra boom in our previous blog, you will come across words like Greenfield Development and Brownfield Redevelopment in many projects. We will see as much as 100 trillion rupees injected into such greenfield and brownfield projects in India by the Government through National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP). It's simple, Green and Brown: Greenfield:- It is project development on land which was not used for many years but did NOT have any construction, such as agriculture land, plots, government land, etc. Brownfield:- It is a project redevelopment, the land will have previous construction such as residential, commercial, or industry and can be contaminated soil (polluted due to industrial waste). Development and Redevelopment: As in Greenfield, there is no previous construction, hence it is called Development . As in Brownfield, there is previous construction and needs redevelopment, hence it is called Redevelopment . Few Points: In Greenfield projects, the inve

Infrastructure Boom In India

After few lockdowns and then Unlocks... India's PM came up with the idea of self-reliant and self-sufficient INDIA -"ATMANIRBHAR BHARAT". This idea of "ATMANIRBHAR BHARAT" made many companies in the infra-sector majorly Government hold Public Sector Units (PSUs) and Private constuction companies started giving orders to Indian Companies, such as the Metal, Cement, and Construction Industry and this gave boast to take the first big step and start a Infra-Boom which I will show in short to you. This attracted many foregin comapnies to invest in India and the companies started working with new energy and flow of liquidity unlike ever in India. This is seen in projects such as: 1) Jammu-Baramulla Railway Project, Himachal to Jammu and Himachal to Leh Road Project. The route will consist of many tunnels and bridges and reduce the travel time. (This will open 2 new routes to Srinagar and a new Route to Leh, this idea came because the roads get block easily due to snow

Post Pandemic Civil Engineer's Thinking

The Civil Engineering field was one of the most affected by the pandemic, as most of the work cannot be done from home such as surveying, fieldwork, plan layout, construction, and other physical work. Few things such as planning, drawing can be done by that too was limited.  With this, many countries' economy saw a slowdown and the best way to boom their economy is by building new infrastructure projects and spending out more on projects such as highways, bridges, metro, state roads, buildings (commercial and residential). Country such as India has taken steps in that direction too with projects such as: 1) Tunnels to connect the northern cities which are mostly disconnected due to snow in the Himalayan ranges... 2) National Highway expansion, Expressway connecting National capital to different cities, Highways to connect more cities, Coastal Road Project (Mumbai), and many more... 3) Port development and renovation which will help in increasing exports as connectivity increases...

Civil Engineering

What Is Civil Engineering? I am a Civil Engineering student, pursuing a Bachelors Degree in Mumbai. Before I took admission in this stream I had the only idea that Civil Engineering means building roads, bridges, and buildings, but after getting in this stream I came across such topics that I didn't think of. The Civil Engineering field does have building roads, bridges, buildings along with railways, irrigation projects, hydraulics, surveying, environmental engineering, and structural analysis. All day-to-day tasks we do right from morning to evening, all things are built and facilitated by Civil Engineers. Here I will try to give you a short idea of why you should choose this topic and why will it grow after this pandemic situation, unlike other fields. Let's see some core subjects: Strength Of Material: Here you will study in detail about the material and its properties such as stress and strain and basics of moment and torque. Structural Analysis: In Structural Analysis you

Timber Buildings !?

Timber Buildings !?  Why do we need a timber building? Yes, timber buildings. As on earth human population is on an exponential rise, many and many people are trying to get home in a city where they have easy excess for the workplace for their own living. In the near future, as the population gets more concentrated in cities more and more structures I mean Tall Structures need to be built. Loading Bearing and Comparison So now architects and builders have opted for old Technic of using timber as a building material eliminating concrete and steel. Yes, it is very hard to find this amount of trees but not impossible. It can be grown and regrown as needed. Many projects have been in progress of this idea and it reduces about 75% of carbon emission as compared to concrete and steel structure. Using timber coming directly from the forest doesn't have the appropriate strength required for a high rise building. So designers came up with the new idea of CLT
