Dr Ramesh Nayaka

Assistant Professor

I.I.T. Dharwad, Karnataka


Dr. Ramesh Nayaka is currently working as assistant professor in the department of civil engineering, NIT Warangal. He has a background in Building Technology and Construction Management (BTCM). Dr. Ramesh Nayaka obtained his Ph.D. in 2019 from the University of Malaya (UM), Malaysia and he has received the "Excellence Award 2019" for outstanding achievement. His Ph.D. thesis research was focused on modern construction materials and techniques for low-cost housing. In addition, he has worked as a research assistant for various projects such as the application of environmentally friendly building materials consisting of local waste materials for affordable housing, green hollow blocks, and Low Carbon Footprint Precast Concrete Products for An Energy Efficient Built Environment (lowcoprecon). He obtained his M.Tech. in Building Technology and Construction Management Specialization in 2013 from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras wherein his thesis project was focused on the study of the functional efficiency of buildings. Dr. Ramesh Nayaka has previously worked as an assistant professor in the department of civil engineering at Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE), KA, India. Where his job responsibilities included associate coordinator for the M.Tech. program in construction engineering and management (CEM), associate coordinator for the department National Board of Accreditation (NBA) committee, associate coordinator for the departmental syllabus committee, and a member of the research and development committee and doctoral advisory committee. Dr. Ramesh Nayaka has publications in various journals and received the best research paper or presenter awards at various international conferences. He is also a charted engineer (C.Eng.) (IEI, India), reviewer of journals, and member of ASCE, RILEM, Institute of Engineers, India; Institute of structural engineers and association of civil engineers, UK.

 What to expect during the event

In the Architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) sector, the Building Information Modelling (BIM) based construction is identified as the solution of fastback delivery of projects. It has also been proved with BIM, leads to good visualization of the project, significant amounts of project cost can be reduced, quality construction can be done, and BIM also helps in post construction with facility management increasing the life of the building throughout whole life cycle of the project. Although several research is also going on integrating BIM with Internet of Things (IoT), visualization of the model with Virtual Reality (VR), simplification of BIM models with IOT and machine learning techniques. With these developments the various construction participants in western countries have increased their stakes in BIM with making it mandatory in new construction projects and using the benefits of BIM. However, in India being the 2nd largest fastest growing economy and seventh largest country in terms of land having huge construction projects going on, in last decade haven't put much stake in BIM, just for the sake of the name, the BIM is applied while majority of the construction works are handled by the same conventional method. In this context, this paper attempts to apply BIM approach in AEC sector to build a 5BHK luxury Villa through a case study which may pave a way for Indian construction industry, the implementation of BIM integrating all the domains AEC sector up to 7 Dimensions (7D) with facade optimization. This study becomes unique because of its focus on a luxury villa which makes it suitable realtors and residential sectors, as more than 50% of the construction in India are on residential projects. With many papers focusing on particular domains (only one or two), and for large projects other than residential projects. Based on case study, conclude that the BIM is an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure.
