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.

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.

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.

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

The Workplace Safety and Health (Design for Safety) Regulations 2015 came into operation on 1st August 2016. Besides the employment of a Design for Safety Professional, other personnel such as architects, engineers, designers involve in various engineering professions in the project are also required to eliminate or mitigate all foreseeable design risks to as low as reasonably practicable to any person affected by the project under the Regulations.
