Glass has come to be a ubiquitous material, present in virtually all areas of buildings. As a construction material, glass is unique in many aspects, including its brittle nature, extreme longevity when handled correctly, and its unicity as a transparent material. This exceptional visit to a glass processing plant offers the opportunity for a small group of interested engineers to learn more about this unique material, its production method, its many different varieties, its uncommon structural behaviour, as well as specific production techniques.

LAST CALL FOR ENTRIES : The Build Smart Conference provides a platform for practitioners from different disciplines to gain insights of overseas and local advancement towards construction productivity, its technologies, processes and concepts, business case, as well as exemplary projects. Launched in 2011, the Build Smart Conference has been a key event, which is an industry-wide campaign to raise awareness in enhancing construction productivity. The theme for this year revolves around Unlocking Innovation through Digital Transformation focusing on technological advancement and best practices in Integrated Digital Delivery (IDD). The international and local experts will share on their experiences on topics such as application of digitisation through exemplary international and local IDD projects that enhance our construction productivity.

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

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.

Singapore has designated 2018 as the Year of Climate Action. In recognition of this important initiative, the seminar will address the challenges and technological solutions related to the sustainable functioning of cooling towers in buildings. These technologies seek to minimise the use of water, energy, and chemicals (and by extension, toxicity levels), while still eliminating microbial contamination in order to ensure high indoor air quality.

The Green and Gracious Builder Scheme (GGBS) was launched in February 2009 to raise the environmental consciousness and professionalism in builders. The GGBS small and medium construction (SMC) was introduced in April 2014 to encourage SMC firms to work in a smart and responsible manner. GGBS is also a benchmark of a builders corporate social responsibility to the environment and the general public. Apart from setting standards for green and gracious practices, it also helps to improve the image of the builders and the built environment sector.

The BCA Design and Engineering Safety Award was launched in May 2008 to give recognition to the Qualified Person for Structural Works [QP(ST)], QP(ST)s firm and the project team for ingenious design processes and solutions in overcoming project challenges to ensure safety in design, construction and maintenance of building and civil engineering projects locally and overseas.

A strategic decision normally entails trade-off in multiple factors, e.g. human resource, equipment, cost, and risk. In a rapidly changing environment, decisions have to be made with incomplete and imperfect information. Knowledge extracted from data, either small or big, using artificial intelligence and related methodologies provides useful insights such that informed decisions could be made in complex and dynamic environments.In this talk, the speaker will share his experience in designing and developing computational intelligence models, primarily neural, fuzzy, and evolutionary algorithms for data analytics anddecision support. He will also elucidate the capability of using intelligent learning models for extracting useful information and knowledge from small to big data to support human decisionmaking processes. Real-world case studies in healthcare and manufacturing domains will be demonstrated.

IntroductionThe foundation of our healthcare system is primary healthcare services which will continue to increase as we face an increasing prevalence of chronic diseases in tandem with an ageing population, changing lifestyles and longer life expectancies. As such, polyclinics which are defined as one-stop healthcare centres, independent of a hospital, will provide subsided primary care which includes primary medical treatment and examination, preventive healthcare and health education for patients of different age groups.By 2030, one in four Singaporeans is aged 65 or above. The Government will continue to build capacity, including that of nursing homes beds to be sited within senior-friendly neighbourhoods and to locate aged care residential and support facilities within the community to support new care models that will enable the seniors to receive better care, closer to their homes and familiar surroundings.The new Technical Reference (TR 65) for Facility Design for Polyclinics and (TR 66) for Facility Design for Nursing Homes are part of MOH Holdings standardisation plans for healthcare infrastructure.These two Technical References specify the general guidelines for the planning and design of polyclinics and nursing homes in Singapore. They provide guidance on the specific technical requirements of related facilities sited within a polyclinic and nursing home to consultants and personnel who may be involved in the design, construction, operation and maintenance of polyclinics and nursing homes.Who Should Attend Architects Engineers Facilities managers Healthcare operators Medical / healthcare personnel Project consultants and contractors Relevant government agenciesWhat You Will Learn Overview of the new TR 65 for Facility Design for Polyclinics and TR 66 for Facility Design for Nursing Homes Planning, functional and design considerations Insights from industry experts involved in the planning and design of polyclinics and nursing homes
