Safety in Construction Projects : Safeguarding Survival

In the 20th Century, the construction industry is in a booming phase and day by day the world is experiencing Larger, Taller, Longer, and Deeper construction projects. Due to rapid urbanization, these projects are becoming more complex and challenging and so the various risks associated with it are also increasing. When it comes to safety in Construction projects, we often visualize the three PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) which are safety helmets, aprons, and safety shoes. No doubt that PPE is an integral part of safety but today we will try to understand and have a glimpse few more insights of Safety in Construction Projects.

3D Rebar Modelling

Rebar detailing is the discipline of preparing ‘shop/placing’ or ‘fabrication’ drawings or shop drawings of steel reinforcement for construction.Architects and Engineers prepare ‘design drawings’ that develop required strengths by applying rebar size, spacing, location, and lap of steel. Modeling Rebar requires precision and an intricate level of modeling. Hence, it Read more

The 3C’s Model : Delivering Successful Construction Projects

The most important aspect for making a construction project successful is by implementing the 3C;s model. The 3C’s model consists of  Communication , Coordination & Co- Operation. All  these three are interdependent on each other. Communication slightly precedes the other two because without effective communication, cooperation and coordination will not be achieved successfully.

Building a Career in Renewable Energy: Insights and Opportunities for Freshers

The Indian renewable energy sector is the fourth most attractive renewable energy market in the world. India was ranked fourth in wind power, fifth in solar power and fourth in renewable power installed capacity, as of 2020. Installed renewable power generation capacity has gained pace over the past few years, posting a CAGR of 15.92% between FY16-22.
