"Lets plan and build the future!"

Construction industry is one of the largest industries in the world and the one that has the highest stakes. Construction project management deals with the art of undertaking a construction project to meet its cost, time and quality deadlines in a sustainable way. It is incredibly important that a civil engineer should learn not only to plan but also to design a building that can stand up safely, function without excessive deflections and make the world awe at its construction. Hinges17' presents you with a workshop on BUILDING DESIGN AND PLANNING. This interactive workshop accompanied with actual case studies introduces students to the management techniques involved over the complete timeline of a construction project and various aspects of designing a building. Discover the civil engineer in you by exploring a whole new dimension of planning and design. Let your design change the world!!
