While BCA has made significant progress in leading the building industry towards Universal Design (UD) adoption through funding and seminars, the industry is still lacking in their knowledge and application of UD. There is a need to build the industrys capability and capacity in adopting UD so as to create an inclusive and age friendly built environment for all ages. The 4-day programme aims to provide an overview of the various aspects of adopting an inclusive approach to design. The course will adopt a multidisciplinary approach to gain an appreciation of UD through the direct contact with varied user groups in a focused context; the pragmatics of UD supported by an understanding of the theoretical framework; and the ability to source for and apply qualitative & quantitative information regarding the fit between human and the built environment.

The specific objective of Module 1 on Piling & Foundations is to familiarize participants with piling methods adopted in Singapore and the region and how to supervise the installation of piles. The sub-topic on foundations will provide participants with knowledge on various types of foundations and their construction and supervision.

Singapore University of Social Sciences

16 May 2019 to 23 May 2019

This talk will focus on the Design for Safety (DfS) process, and how the Project Managers can incorporate this process into the project schedule, without affecting the project delivery date. We also discuss on the criteria and attributes ofthe DfS Professional, so that the GUIDE workshops are effective

Institution of Engineers, Singapore

To prepare site personnel to become aware of the importance of details during scaffold erection, use and dismantling, in relation to proper documentation of SWPs, incidents, etc. and direct and continuous monitoring of scaffolds and workers on them

Association of Consulting Engineers, Singapore

24 May 2019 to 24 May 2019

PART 1: MECHANICAL GROOVED PIPING SYSTEMSThis seminar provides a comprehensive knowledge of mechanical grooved piping systems. Upon completion of this seminar, each participant will understand the history and anatomy of a grooved joint, and installation process from pipe and grooves inspection all the way through to visual verification of installation.PART 2: FLEXIBLE SPRINKLER FITTINGS SYSTEMSUpon completion of this seminar, each participant will understand the history and the anatomy of the flexible drops, how modern innovation is revolutionizing this Flexible Sprinkler Fitting Systems with new technology, and all the way through to visual verification of installation.

Comprehensive and well-coordinated Infrastructure planning is a prerequisite in developing a new town or housing estate and is carried out in tandem with the master town planning and well in advance of any physical developments. It serves to establish the full infrastructure requirements and guide their timely implementation thereby ensuring quality, efficiency and cost-effectiveness in the infrastructure provisions for the proposed development. Equip participants with the fundamental knowledge in infrastructure planning by introducing them to the key aspects in the planning processes.

Institution of Engineers, Singapore

25 May 2019 to 25 May 2019

Underground and related structures are of great significance to the local construction industry. Many structures have to be built below ground and their design and construction are of importance to those in the civil engineering profession.Resident Engineers and Resident Technical Officers need to be familiar with the construction and supervision of underground and associated structures, as such foundations, basements, tunnels and earth-retaining structures.

Institution of Engineers, Singapore

30 May 2019 to 30 May 2019

This course covers topics rarely covered to any great extent at undergraduate level. The emphasis is on hand-based methods. They can be used directly for design or for the checking of computer-based designs. However, rather than just providing an alternate design method of equal difficulty to conventional procedures, it will be found that many problems can be tackled surprisingly easily using these powerful methods. The methods are an aid to understanding. Many worked examples are presented showing how the various methods can be used. The emphasis is on the use of the methods for practical problem solving, so little theory is presented. Appropriate reference will also be made to SS EN 1992 series on Design of Concrete Structures
