[2 SGBC-GMAP CPD Points awarded] Driven by challenges brought about by the pandemic, the 2 built environment megatrends of digitalisation and sustainability are set to transform the way we design, build and operate our buildings. Technological innovations can help to monitor, rectify and refine operational issues, but thought needs to be put into their actual implementation to ensure optimal efficiency and efficacy.At the JTC-SGBC Joint Webinar this year, we will illustrate the value that artificial intelligence, machine learning and robotics can bring to the built environment. JTC will share the latest on their operation optimisation journey, bringing in 2 partners H3 and Elid Tech to elaborate on innovations in the area of condition monitoring and robotic maintenance. SGBC Member Green Koncepts will round off the session with an overview of how sustainability and efficiency outcomes can be achieved with an AI-enabled building management system.

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.

The Code of Practice for Lightning Protection SS555: Parts 1 to 4, 2018 is a very comprehensive code of practice for the design, installation and maintenance of lightning protection systems. It is aligned to the IEC 62305: Parts 1 to 4, 2010 international standard on protection against lightning. Building and Construction Authority (BCA) has mandated that with effect from 1 May 2019, developments whose building plans are submitted on or after the date must comply with the relevant requirements in SS555:2018. In December 2020, an Amendment No. 1 was also issued for SS555:Part 3:2018

The course aims to provide participants with a thorough knowledge and understanding of how standby power generating systems operates through an automatic transfer switch monitors the AC voltage coming from the utility line for power failure conditions.Upon detection of an outage for a pre-determined period of time, the standby generator is started. After the generator is speed up to the rated speed, the load is transferred from the utility to the generator. Upon return of the utility feed, the load is switched back and the generator is stopped.Once this basic concept is understood, various standby power supply options will be examined and discussed. Thereafter, selection of a suitable generating set and determination of its output and input power and therefore the engine output in HP can be calculated and determined.Other topics of importance such as electrical equipment of diesel engine, engine cooling and engine room ventilation requirements, air requirements without engine cooling air, generators waste heat, combustion air, fuel oil supply to diesel engine, daily service tank, storage tank, fuel pumps, electrical switchgear and automatic control panel will be fully discussed.

This comprehensive 3 days preparation training course based on thenew issue of SS638(2018) - Requirements for Electrical Installations, isdesigned to help young and practicing electrical engineers who wants tohave a clear understanding of SS638 requirements. The scope of the course generally follows that of SS638 (2018), but it also contains materials not included in the new issue of SS638(2018) that are necessary to explain, expand upon and simplify the essential parts of the regulations, ensure high quality guidance that is simple, easy to follow and understanding of specific key topics.

While we are aware that it is not the responsibility of the architect/designer to maintain the facility upon its completion, this is not fully appreciated during the design process. When design decisions are made without regard to the maintenance perspective, it can often lead to a facility that incurs more cost to maintain or that has components that simply cannot be maintained. As facilities are completed, the owner's maintenance responsibilities begin and increase with the ageing of the facilities. The lack of maintainability is sometimes further aggravated by man power shortage and budget reductions.Given the maintenance issues that can arise, a fundamental understanding that facilities can be designed to be more maintainable will lead to lower cost of operation and higher safety during the entire building life.The objective of this course is to provide all stakeholders of a project the understanding and techniques when designing a facility to achieve high maintainability and productivity post construction.

The regulatory requirement for Design-for-Safety (DfS) was enforced since August 2016. It requires stakeholders to work together to address foreseeable risks right from the conceptual design to the construction of the project. During the construction stage, the DfS review meetings will involve the design & supervision team from the Consultants and construction team from the Contractor. They will participate in reviewing safety and health risks relating to design and propose mitigation measures for implementation.
