Building Services engineering brings a building to life, have a profound impact on different aspects of building performance such as end-user satisfaction, environmental impact, maintenance and utilities cost, as well as business continuity. In the modern built environment, clients require their projects to be delivered on time and within budget. Clients also want assets to be operationally-ready at handover, facilities that perform to suit their required function and buildings with high levels of performance over the long-term. A correctly executed commissioning process for Building Services is crucial to achieving these outcomes. This course will discuss the different Building Services in projects, what the commissioning process is, why it is important and how the commissioning process could be executed at each stage of project delivery. Prefabricated Building Services elements for improved productivity will also be shared.

With effect from 1 October 2010, for Ready-Mixed Concrete (RMC) Certification, Building and Construction Authority (BCA) will require batching plants to be certified by certification bodies accredited under Singapore Accreditation Councils Accreditation Scheme. This RMC certification will be based on the new Singapore Standards SS EN 206-1 (Concrete Specification, performance, production and conformity) and SS 544 (Concrete Complementary Singapore Standard to SS EN 206-1). This certificate course in concrete technology is jointly organised by the BCA Academy, the Singapore Concrete Institute (SCI) and the American Concrete Institute-Singapore Chapter (ACI-SC) to familiarize technical personnel in the concrete industry with the certification scheme.

The learning points, observations and recommendations from the study trips will be useful as we embark on the next phase of work to encourage our industry to use more GR600 rebars and rebar systems to improve construction productivity. This seminar is organised specifically to share these learning lessons, to discuss the issues confronting our industry and key stakeholders in trying to use GR600 rebars and how we can overcome these issues and move forward together in the same direction.

Way-finding and signage design should be considered holistically as part of the building and facilities planning process. This is to ensure that people can have safe and easy access to amenities and facilities provided in a building. Through this course, the participants will have a good appreciation of how way-finding plays a vital role in Universal Design (UD), especially in supporting the ageing population; learn of the principles, design considerations and communication strategies of way-finding and signage; and be familiar with the design requirements set out in SS 599:2014 Guide for Wayfinding Signage in Public Areas. The Instructor will also share his experiences through the use of positive and negative case-studies.

This seminar aims to raise the safety standards of our industry and shape a safe built environment for Singapore. This year, we will be partnering with GeoSS and our industry partners to share on issue related to Building Control and safety of Geotechnical Building Work as we anticipate more upcoming civil engineering projects.

Advancing, Networking and Creating Vast Opportunities for Singapore's Engineering Sectors. Safety First. Safety Always. For Future-Ready Singapore.

The "Key Elements of Safety Case" provides participants with insights into recent challenges confronting Singapore's process industry, namely safety case implementation. For safety case implementation, experts will share selected key elements of safety case, notably process hazard analysis, quantitative risk assessment and emergency response planning.

The "Energy Efficiency Improvements" provides participants with professional insights into challenges confronting Singapore's process industry, namely Energy Efficiency Improvements. For energy efficiency improvements, experts will firstly share the role and challenges of Singapore Certified Energy Manager (SCEM) and experiences in real-time energy management; followed by selected case studies.

BCA strongly encourages the use of new and innovative technology for improved productivity. To accelerate adoption of such technology, there is an urgent need to get the industry to be familiarised with some of the productive construction methodologies adopted overseas. One such example is the Innovative Prestressed Support (IPS) system. IPS system has been successfully developed by adopting prestressing technology, which expands the length of wale more than 20 times. It significantly improves main structure and excavation efficiency that reduces the cost and construction time. IPS system has also received many national awards such as Korea 10 Best New Technology. This workshop is to educate and share with the industry on the use of this new technology method so that its applications can be better understood.
