Formwork structures have always been a highly hazardous item inthe construction industry. Continuing failures of formworks inSingapore have raised considerable alarm in the industry, thegovernment and the public.To address these concerns, and to update an outdated Code ofPractice for formwork, a Workgroup was formed in 2012 to developa new Code of Practice, SS580.This one-day course on formwork design and safety to revisedstandards and EuroCode aims to accomplish the following: Provide background material to and useful information onimproved standards in this area for this critical topic inworkplace safety; Present the basics of safe design of formwork structures andessential design requirements of SS580; Describe significant parts of the new Code of Practice forFormwork SS580:2012 to facilitate its use by designers andconstructors; Review a number of failure of formworks in Singapore andabroad to convey an understanding of causes; Discuss techniques to identify and evaluate the hazards, andmanage the risks; and, Offer practical guidelines for good practice in formworkdesign, erection, use, dismantling, inspection, andsupervision.The focus will be on basic concepts and procedures currently in usefor formwork in the construction industry.Objectives will include identification of principal contributory factors to formwork failures and their underlying rootcauses, and discussing how the new Code can eliminate or alleviate the problems.

The Bachelor of Construction Management (Building)(Honours) will equip you with the skills and knowledge to manage complexities in construction projects both in Singapore and across the world. The programme incorporates substantial Building Information Modelling (BIM) teaching and projects which offer a niche specialty beyond the construction management discipline. This would give the graduates a solid foundation to pursue wide career choice as BIM Managers, Project Managers, Quantity Surveyors and Facility Managers. The degree programme is conceptualised to be a problem-based learning pedagogy to train students to solve real world challenges, develop holistic understanding of construction project environment and portable life-long learning skills. To offer an accelerated pathway, an advanced standing articulation would be eligible for students with relevant diploma qualifications.

Civil Engineers are highly demanded in Singapore. In fact, Civil engineering is vital to Singapores drive to creating a better built environment and liveable city. The development of mega infrastructure projects as well as re-shaping Singapores city landscape will require highly qualified engineers trained in civil discipline. As we build higher and dig deeper underground, there is high prospects for Civil Engineers^ to design, plan, build, manage and oversee the development of infrastructure/building projects.This degree programme is designed to allow both GCE 'A' level and diploma graduates a pathway to pursue a rewarding career in the built environment.

Gas pipelines play an integral support role in the transmission of power. Similarly, electricity cables serve as an important link in supplying reliable transmission and quality power to consumers. Hence, adhering to good practices in cable and gas pipe damage prevention during earthwork, is critical to prevention of disruption to power supply, potential financial loss and delay in project delivery. The Registered Earthworks Supervisor course aims to provide an overview of the relevant earthworks legislation and code of practice relating to construction earthworks carried out in the vicinity of the electricity cables/ gas pipes. Participants will learn about the key requirements of the relevant legislation, control measures and good practices to prevent damage to the underground cables, gas pipes and services. Case studies will also be discussed.
