Building Information Modeling - Civil Engineering Software

Buildin Information Modeling (BIM) and its benefits for future work and jobs
BIM Software

The Building Information Modeling (BIM) provides the 3D object library of the physical building. In essence, BIM is a way to construct building virtually, before building in the real world. While it has its root in architecture, the principles of BIM apply to everything that is built, including roads and highways, and the benefits of BIM are being experienced by Civil Engineers in the same way they enjoyed by Architects.
The use of powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) for Infrastructure tools even at the conceptual design stage allows infrastructure designers to map out a variety of schemes from the outset to maximize land usage and at the same time minimize environmental impact across the range of Civil Engineering disciplines, including Road, Rail, Utilities, and GIS. BIM allows engineers more easily to predict the performance of the project before they are built, respond to design changes faster, optimize designs with analysis, simulation, and visualization, and also deliver high-quality documents. The most immediate benefits of BIM are for the road and highway projects and it is particularly important for transportation agencies because it can shorten the time to contract to let, resulting in projects being complete sooner and within more predictable timetables.
By investing in BIM for infrastructure civil engineering businesses will be able to increase the efficiency and profitability within the company as well as being more competitive in the marketplace. And at many places for completing projects, fast BIM will no doubt be the first call for supply.
BIM expands significantly the design decision matrix, facilitating collaboration among the various disciplines and systems, identifying clashes before construction begins. Also the design and construction teams, modeling can greatly aid owners in managing projects through their useful life.

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 i.e. Cross Laminate Timber which …
