Mr. Prakash Bajaj has B. Tech Degree from Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai in 1974 and M.S. in Structural Engineering from University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, USA). He is a renowned engineer professional and an education.
Mr. Bajaj is a CEO of Computer Help, Mumbai. Having wide experience of more than four decades as a renowned structural engineer, he is a master mind behind the development of software for structural design & drawings like “Draftwin”, “Planwin” etc. Mr. Bajaj is also a renowned trainer recognised all over India for structural design software like StaddPro, ETabs, Safe, Revit, etc.
Mr. Bajaj initially worked as Research & Development, Automation and Training at G. A. Bhillare Consultant Pvt. Ltd. (GABCPL). Having a wide experience in his field, he is familiar with high-rise committee approval HR head research & development of in-house software. He also heads training division of GABCPL for various software. He imparts training and guides Junior & Senior Engineers to develop structural analysis and design in RCC using various software. He is involved in setting-out office procedures for design, analysis and drafting to render high quality professional service in the filed of Civil and Structural Engineering.
Recently Mr. Prakash has kept himself extremely busy in developing a “Software Based Service” under the brand of “1mnt” (1mnt.in). The software has been developed as a joint vision and venture of Shri Mahadev Desai, Shri Ravin Desai, Shri Shekhar Parikh of SDCPL and Shri Prakash Bajaj.
This is “The first in Industry” software which generate exact quantities and bills for contractor’s from basic CAD based drawings. It is going to be a game-changer for building construction professionals. The software apart from Bill of Quantities and Measurement sheet generates tonnes of data as “Management Information System” acting as an innovative tool, eliminating, tedious, cumbersome, boring and time consuming, inefficient, inaccurate and costly process of bill preparation by civil building contractors. It provides detailed profit and escalation / sensitivity analysis on “Day Zero” with details of resources and management report / data for right project management i.e. resource planning and controlling cost as well as profit. His Mantra is hard work, dedication, perseverance, and commitment for research & innovation, simplifying engineering complexities, housing (doubtful), integrity, simplicity and nobleness.
This software can handle mammoth data of all leading SORs (Schedule of Rates) of various public works department of State Govt of India including CPWD of Govt of India. This software is going to be a big boon not only for building contactors but also for builders, developers, EPC contractors including Architects, Engineers and other construction professionals. It has a huge database of more than 5000 construction items and equal no. of materials.
1mnt.in gives detailed materials as well as labour requirements including plumbing fixtures like, tees, bends, elbows, union etc., and details of building hardware like no. of screws, etc. It also works out formwork requirements, machine hour requirement of Plant & machinery including no. of labour required for a given work.
It does detailed cost analysis of RCC works, analysing cost of concrete, steel and formwork inter-se. Apart from all such reports, it prepares exact quantity of steel based on “Bar Bending schedule”, which can also be generated on it based on detailed structural design drawings. The bar bending schedule can also be used for production at the factory.
It can also compare, analyse the “least cost” of structural design i.e. it can do optimisation of structural design out of multiple options provided.
He also guides and mentors gharpedia.com with immense knowledge and experience. His role includes simplifying the content published in research journals and latest development in civil and structural engineering.
Gharpedia.com helps to Build/Own/Rent/Buy/Sell/Repair/Maintain your dream house by providing all the tips & tricks in easy languages. It provides solutions to all problems pertaining to houses right from concept to completion and beyond including operation & maintenance in article format. The attempt has been made to provide solutions in a language, which can be understood by a layman or even the housewife. Attempt has also been made to provide valuable construction related (Civil, Architecture, Interior) information resources for Professionals and students too.
