Requirements of noise control and management in construction sites are stipulated by NEA and MOM through legislations. To ensure that construction works do not affect neighbouring residents and businesses, noise levels are to be continuously monitored in construction sites and kept within the permissible levels. Developers also require contractors to prepare and submit to them a Noise Management Plan which usually includes the baseline noise record, indicate the Noise Sensitive Receivers (NSRs) (such as hospitals, schools, etc.) and propose mitigation measures and public relation strategies to handle noise matters. Throughout the construction duration, contractors are required to implement all practicable measures while continuously monitoring the noise levels closely.

Construction Quality Assessment System (CONQUAS) is a voluntary scheme developed by BCA in conjunction with the major public sector agencies and various industry professional bodies to measure quality level achieved in a completed project. As part of the requirements for the Certified QM/CONQUAS Manager schemes which accord recognition to construction personnel who are instrumental in ensuring and delivering high quality projects as reflected in high CONQUAS score projects, the Certified QM/CONQUAS Managers course provides necessary knowledge to enable the participants to effectively implement Quality Management System (QMS) and achieve better Quality Mark (QM)/CONQUAS score.

Various challenges are present in pile foundation works due to the uncertainties and variability of the ground conditions. Once the piles are installed, they are expected to function throughout their lifetime. During the lifetime of the building, the foundation is rarely inspected for its continued structural integrity and stability. Supervision of piling works for building foundation is therefore essential and critical in ensuring the quality of construction works and safety of building structures. This short course imparts to participants the essential knowledge of good construction practices, supervision of piling works, regulatory requirements and testing of pile foundation works.

Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) is an integrated approach thatcombines Building Information Modelling (BIM) and advanced management methods to improve productivity. The programme will provide insights into VDC methodologies such asIntegrated Concurrent Engineering, and Process and Production Management, where participants will be able to apply these VDC methodologies to streamline project workflow and improve business performances . VDC will benefit both consultants and contractors to achieve productivity gains in upstream and downstream of both design and construction phases.

The Specialist Diploma Computational BIM Building (SDCBB) programme aims to equip Built Environment professionals and contractors with knowledge in the different computational BIM tools for automation, optimization and validation. Learners will undergo an intensive course where they will acquire knowledge on basic programming syntax and proceed to learn how to script across various types of computational BIM software for customisation of the BIM programmes. With data generated from BIM models, learners would also be able to manage and manipulate such data for construction use, which enables further application to their respective disciplines. The programme devotes 60% of the total contact hours to the use of computer labs for hands-on learning. Finally, students will embark on a 4-month graded project based on application of the computational skills they have learnt into their current projects. *Please be informed that the indicated start and end dates of this course are currently tentative.

The Specialist Diploma in MEP Modularisation (SDMM) is a 9-month programme developed to be in line with Governments effort to increase overall construction productivity capabilities in the MEP sector. SDMM focuses on Off-site Prefabrication of Modular Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing Systems (MMS) aka MEP Modularisation. SDMMs first module introduces learners to the principles of MEP coordination. It provides an overview of the MEP system design and material selection; followed by installation and testing; and finally, operations and maintenance. The subsequent module covers good practices in MMS ranging from 3 broad modular frame designs: modular run, modular riser and modular platform. It also establishes guidelines on how different MEP services are allocated within the frame as well as recommended sizes, type of materials and minimum services needed for cost effectiveness. Advanced jointing services for MEP are also studied for their efficacy inenhancing productivity as well as their long-term impact based on cost-benefits analysis. BIM Modelling tools will be used for MEP systems design and analysis. Programming tools will also be introduced to enhance BIM MEP design. There will be practicum to address some of the potential challenges that could be faced by Designers, Consultants and Fabricators. External guest speakers specialising in components for MMS will also be invited to share their experiences. Finally, students will embark on a 4-month graded project based on designing a full range of MMS solutions for a specific building type.

Learners of this course will gain the knowledge and skills for fulfilling the roles of the construction Design for Safety Professional (DfS Professional) in accordance with the WSH (DfS) Regulations effective from 1 August 2016. Upon completion of this unit, Learners will have the skills and knowledge to function as a DfS Professional which purposes to: (1) Assist the Developer to identify and address means to eliminate or mitigate the risks inherent in the design of a construction project through conducting DfS review meetings and maintaining a DfS register so as to reduce the safety and health risks during the construction, maintenance / repair phase, and demolition of the building and structure; and (2)Coordinate the flow of the construction project safety and health risks information among the stakeholders from the design stage, to construction stage until the handover to the Developer for occupation and maintenance.The skill and knowledge learnt during this course are likely to be applied in the following activities: (1) Facilitate DfS Review Meeting that involves the relevant stakeholders to identify and address safety and health risks associated with construction project. (2) Maintain records of safety and health issues arising from the DfS Review Meeting and actions taken. (3) Coordinate the flow of relevant safety and health information among all stakeholders of a construction project at appropriate time.

Recognizing that disputes may arise even out of the most carefully drafted contracts, it is important to understand the processes and key skills that are necessary in common dispute resolution mechanisms. Understanding how each dispute resolution mechanism works before selecting the appropriate mechanism to govern the disputes will also provide better management of contract downstream.This course is designed for practitioners in the construction industry who wish to learn the basic principles of construction contract drafting and appropriate dispute resolution. The objective of the course is to provide a proper training platform to impart the necessary technical skills and requisite legal knowledge in contract drafting.

Windows are major components of buildings allowing for transmission of light, providing view for the occupants and giving a pleasing facade. However, poorly designed and installed windows pose a problem of water seepage. As aluminium frame windows are commonly used in the local industry, the Good Industry Practices Aluminium Window was developed to share with the industry good work practices adopted by practitioners and contractors who have consistently delivered high quality work.This Good Industry Practices highlights the benefits and practical tips on how quality fabrication and site installation can be achieved.
