Collapse is every engineers worst nightmare. Fortunately, not every engineer must go through the experience of a collapse first- hand as we can all learn from the mistakes of others. This course aims to impart knowledge by way of sharing examples of structural engineering failures so engineers can learn how not to repeat such mistakes. It will also cover the relevant areas of SS EN 1992 series on Design of Concrete Structures, with reference to structural engineering failures

Supervision plays a crucial role in building and civil engineering works. The Eurocodes for structural design have been implemented on 1st April 2015 as the prescribed structural standard for meeting compliance with the Building Regulations in Singapore. Eurocodes are different from the past Codes of Practices. This course is organised to prepare stake-holders including building owners, developers, builders, specialist builders, architects, engineers, project managers and such supervisory personnel as Qualified Persons, Site Supervisors, Resident Engineers and Resident Technical Officers on the understanding of supervision of building and civil engineering works in accordance to Eurocodes.

This course is to give a broad view and the purposeful meaning of the Practice of Professional Engineering Examination; to identify the common mistake and weakness in the candidates who responded to the exam questions.

The course will equip the participants with the knowledge of causes and mitigations of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) issues, conduct of an IAQ investigation and procedures to execute appropriate remediation measures. This course will cover IAQ management for non-residential buildings where air conditioning is commonly used. It will emphasis on the air quality control in air conditioning & mechanical ventilation system for tropical climate. The participants will also be introduced to the SS 554 standards in indoor air quality for air conditioned buildings.

Timber flooring is widely used in building works. Having good understanding and knowledge on the types of timber flooring, their components, the right ways to handle, install and maintain them would enable the stakeholders to improve the workmanship standards of such flooring.With the emergence of engineered wood flooring due to its superior quality, environmental friendliness and ease of handling, this course has been enhanced to cover topics on engineered wood flooring. With the revamped content, this course, which covers the salient points of two Good Industry Practices (GIP) guidebooks, namely, Timber Flooring and Engineered Wood Flooring, will further align the industry towards quality and productivity improvements.
