What is BIM

Building Information Modeling is not just one software, rather it is a collection of software such as modeling software like REVIT, Scheduling software such as MS Project/Primavera P6. Then merge both and input them in Navisworks for a complete action pack and detail-oriented model with a time frame. This way we get better visualization and understanding of design which will result in reducing various clashes and delays during on-field execution.

Where can it be used?

BIM as a whole is USD in ACE Industry which is Architecture-Construction-Engineering. Various industry-oriented personals have recommended BIM Technology not only for construction but also for facility management. As the source and data output from BIM are precise and time-saving. Reporting documents and generating estimation is hassle-free when compared to other areas.

If you want to start and get in this field, many did recommend me to go for estimating and scheduling with schedule and Navisworks which will not require you any modeling skills, and kick start with this small step.

What tools or software do you need?

  1. REVIT Architecture 
  2. REVIT Structures
  4. BIM 360
  5. MS Project
  6. Primavera P6
  7. GanttPRO
  8. Advance in MS Excel
  9. Procore
  10. Navisworks
  11. Synchro
Few of them are of the same field and can skip one. For example, MS Project / P6. Navisworks/Synchro
This list is not just of 8 software, you will have to add more software and applications connected to BIM.

Great Man-Made River (GMR)

Libya's Great Man Made River: The Great Man-Made River in Libya is one of the most ambitious Civil Engineering Project in history of mankind.  In the year 1953, the Libya Government found out not only vast oil reserves but also vast quantity of fresh water locked under the strata, most of the water was trapped around 7000-30000 years ago which is divided in 4 different basins. The first basin is named Kufra basin which is neat Egypt Border which covers almost 35000 sq kilometer which is quite deep around 2000 m deep. The other basin is in Sirte Basin which cover 10000 sq kilometer, third in Murzuk Basin and the last in Jabal Fezzan Basin covering 4800 sq kilometers area.  The GMR project will be used to transfer water to North of the country to provide water for irrigation purpose for more than 6 million  people. This will be a changing point  for Libya and the Colonel Muammar Gaddafi called it the Eighth Wonder of World. The work started in 1984 of the project and estimated to be
