The construction industry is important to Singapores economic growth, contributing nearly 5% of GDP in 2015. During construction, however, projects could pose a significant risk to environmental health, potentially causing noise pollution or the spread of infectious vector-borne diseases such as dengue and malaria. Construction practices that inadequately address these issues can have damaging implications, such as adversely affecting the health and well-being of workers on-site and neighbouring communities. A balance between operational and environmental concerns is therefore crucial to ensure that timely completion of projects does not come at the cost of endangering our health and environment. The scope of this course will cover foundational concepts relating to noise and vector-borne diseases, as well as key sources and health impacts relating to noise pollution and vector-borne diseases from construction sites. Management and control measures to address these concerns will also be discussed.

The new 43km Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) is part of Singapore Land Transport Authority's (LTA) vision to double the length of the island's railways system by 2030. The project will be opened in five phases from 2019 to 2024. The TEL will be completely underground, comprising of 31 stations connecting Gardens by the Bay in central Singapore with Woodlands in the north and Bedok in the east. The TEL will interchange with five existing metro lines at seven stations strategically located to help alleviate crowding. One of the key challenges with the project is that the Marina Bay area, through which the line will pass, is already densely populated with two pre-existing railway lines, the North-South Line and Circle Line, already in place.

The 30-km long Thomson Line will enhance rail connectivity in the north-south corridors to the Central Business District (CBD) and developments in the Marina Bay area. Fully underground, Thomson Line comprises 22 stations, including six interchange stations: Woodlands, Caldecott, Stevens, Orchard, Outram Park and Marina Bay. These interchange stations will link to the North-South-East-West Line (NSEWL), Downtown Line (DTL), North-East Line (NEL) and Circle Line (CCL), providing greater accessibility and significantly improve travel time for commuters.

Singapore and the South East Asia are developing infrastructure in a big way. There are many underground and tunnelling projects on going in this region. In Singapore, there are underground rail and road projects, underground commercial projects as well as underground services such as cable, water and sewer projects on going. Some of the major underground and tunnelling projects are such as MRT projects Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL), LTA North-South Expressway (NSE), PUB Deep Tunnel Sewerage System (DTSS) Projects. There are many risk factors in the underground and tunnelling projects in various aspects of design and construction. It is important to constantly remind ourselves the existence of many risk factors and what are the good practice to avoid and eliminate such risks. It is also important to constantly be reminded of the lesson learnt from past incidents and case histories, as well as all some good experience to learn from.

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.

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

Lifting plan is a set of plans which is created for use in any crane lifting operations and it consists of all the important information that must be considered in a lifting operation thus ensuring that the lifting operation is carried out safely. It aims to facilitate consensus amongst all relevant stakeholders including the lifting crew for a safe outcome. Under the WSH legal requirements, all lifting operations shall be accompanied by a lifting plan. This BCA Academys practical course will enable construction site personnel to prepare a proper lifting plan for crane lifting operations and implement the lifting plan in a crane lifting activity. At the end of the training, participants would be able to prepare a lifting plan with good understanding of legal requirements, load charts, crane safety and lifting requirements,and be able to apply the lifting plan at a simulated crane location.
