A Large Hospital Project In Middle East – Neilsoft
Neilsoft provided MEP Engineering and BIM services for a large hospital project, for one of the oldest and largest Health Planners in the world, operating from Australasia to West Asia, the Middle East and Africa. The 100 bed, state of the art hospital measuring 44,000 sq. m. in built-up area (located in the Middle East), is a Premier Private Specialty Hospital for Woman and Children.
Case Study – Burj Al Arab
The building is built on sand, which is unusual as most tall buildings are founded on rock. The Burj al Arab is supported on 250, 1.5M diameter columns that go 45 meters under the sea. As there is only sand to hold the building up the columns rely on friction.
Case Study – BT
The refurbishment and expansion of facilities across BT’s estate of c.6,900 properties.
With a network of c.6,900 offices, workshops, telephone exchanges, and data centres across the UK, BT faces an ongoing challenge to ensure that these facilities are continually maintained, expanded, and fit for purpose
Mass Transit Railway – Laing O’Rourke
Underground railway challenge provide strategy support to develop a MTR BIM development roadmap; including developing best practice workflows and procedures for future roll-out and adoption.
How Laing O’Rourke delivered – submission of six defined workstream reports (over a five month period); including undertaking audits of existing workflows, staff surveys, technology reviews, e-learning modules and adoption framework for implementation including future asset model data for operations and maintenance

Very content with my learning at KCIC, learning two years of my international program here has reduced the cost of study abroad by 60%, and I am excited about my international career.
KCIC offers a different learning environment, unconventional educational methods, with opportunities combined with industrial visits, workshops, and other things, to compete at international level.
I was studying Aeronautical in a traditional college, hearing Cornerstone I shifted from Bangalore and joined here. The foundation year started with direct aerospace units, unlike other colleges.
Frequently Asked Questions
We are looking for a passionate learner willing to study realistically, apply reasoning and ability to learn by doing, but not someone who can memorise and write the whole book without practised knowledge. Hence, your higher secondary results do not make any weight in the selection process, except for your functional abilities. Your entry to our programs depends on your statement of purpose and a personal interview with the academic board but not your higher secondary marks. So plan well for your admission interview and rationalising SOP.
First, two years at Chennai campus is limited to 20-25 students per class. Every year we plan to recruit 250 to 300 students across all departments giving them the assured transfer to Melbourne campus. However, the final years at the Melbourne campus gives you the multicultural environment with 81,000 students studying across the RMIT.
Kings Cornerstone will provide fundamental tools and equipment required for the first two years. The first two years at Kings Cornerstone is a solid foundation to advanced learning at RMIT Melbourne. Since the final years are planned in Melbourne, the facilities provided to students are world-class. They access the same materials, tools, technology what is currently used in the industry.
Take a virtual tour to RMIT manufacturing facility that you have access during the final years at Melbourne. Check out ‘This is Engineering at RMIT’, ‘EMBER – an engineering innovation’ RMIT’s New Academic Street and Telstra Challenge Projects at RMIT.
RMIT universities ranks top in employability. RMIT ranks 87th in the world for employability, beating all IIT’s in India on QS employability ranking. The University of Hertfordshire beats Cambridge on the employability ranking. So our students have higher prospects than IIT grads. If people think IIT’s can guarantee career, then RMIT guarantees 86 time higher than IIT Delhi, Mumbai and Madras.
