In the AEC (architecture, engineering, construction) industry, BIM (Building Information Modelling) is probably the most favorite acronym. Why? Because the BIM process has its advantages, such as: Efficient use of resources On-time delivery of projects Cloud communication between architects, contractors and clients Easy calculation of cost estimates 3D visualisation to minimise changes during final construction
The AEC (architecture, engineering, construction) industry relies heavily on the BIM (Building Information Modelling) process, as BIM has made project execution more systematic, leaving very little room for error. Over time, AEC firms have been recruiting candidates who are well-versed with the BIM concept. In the MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) domain, several BIM roles
In the pre-construction industry, mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) professionals play a vital role. The precision with which MEP professionals create their drawings and models ensures that the residents of that property face no hazardous consequences in the future. Students and professionals who aim to specialise in the MEP domain can opt for any of

View high definition course videos at your own pace anytime, anywhere and take your career to the next level with worthwhile iLEARN courses.
In the pre-construction industry, skilled professionals are well-versed with the software Revit. Professionals obtain certification for Revit from Autodesk-certified training centres. This is because pre-construction firms prefer candidates who are Autodesk-certified. Over time, Autodesk releases new software versions that include enhanced features. It then becomes vital for professionals to upgrade themselves on the latest Revit
People try to imbibe new skills as they seek new career opportunities. Some skills must be learnt from scratch, and that may seem intimidating for a beginner, but it need not be so. In the pre-construction industry, different types of software are used for diverse projects. Software, such as AutoCAD and Revit, for instance, are
‘Online’ – the go-to place for almost everything these days. Therefore, it’s no surprise that learning too has been flourishing online. We have a lot of time left on our hands during the lockdown. Some people fill their time by engaging in creative activities, such as baking, ‘dalgona’ coffee-making and taking up a course online.
Construction involves a hefty sum of investment. It also involves planning for three vital disciplines: architectural, MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing) and structural. Each discipline can be digitally planned using construction documents. These documents can be prepared using Revit software, which specialises in helping to deliver accurate construction drawings. Revit is a pre-construction software that enables
Amidst stiff competition, all firms have a common goal – to be the best and deliver services that result in profits. For profits, firms require skilled resources. Recruiters look for professionals who are well versed with skills that enable firms to deliver profit-earning projects. In the world of architectural design and construction, AEC (architecture, engineering
‘Do you have prior work experience?’ is a question that recruiters typically ask. Being a trainer in the field of CAD/BIM for several years, I have observed that this is the main reason that students enroll for Grey Edge’s BIM Internship Training in Mumbai. Addressing this major concern of students, Grey Edge devised a Revit
An idea germinates with a unique thought. This thought is then put on paper and made into reality with a set of processes. Similarly, when customers approach architects to remodel their homes or design a new home based on the land purchased, architects pen down their home designs on paper and present the final model
The mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) services in a building are three important systems of a building to be designed during the construction process. The 2D MEP drawings and 3D MEP models play a crucial role in how and when these systems will be installed. These drawings and models indicate the location of ducts, lighting,
What is Computer-aided design (CAD)? Computer-aided design (CAD) is the utilization of computer systems to help in the development, alteration, analysis or optimization of a design. CAD software is used to improve the productivity of the designer, enhance communications via documentation and to develop a database for manufacturing. CAD is one of the numerous tools
AutoCAD is the basic core program most civil engineers and architects need as working knowledge. However, having knowledge of other vital software such as Autodesk Revit and STAAD Pro is extremely useful to other disciplines which can make a student more valuable at his/her workplace. As far as AutoCAD is concerned, heading into civil engineering
