Recently construction sites had started using Prefabricated Prefi nished Volumetric Construction (PPVC) in building construction to improve productivity. The components used in PPVC are much heavier and bulky. To lift such components using cranes, the crane operators need to handle the components (loads) more carefully and position them accurately at specifi ed location points mostly with the help of signalmens walkie-talkie communications as the crane operators are unable to see the locations points due to large size of the PPVC components.

Precast concrete technology had been identified as one of the key areas of focus to improve productivity in the construction industry. It has been observed that there is more room for a greater adoption of this technology in Singapore. Good site management practices and planning of precast concrete construction activities such as on-site/off-site casting of precast members, transportation of the members to site, erection and construction considerations would contribute to more efficient, less labour intensive and faster construction. This would eventually lead to better construction productivity. This workshop provides construction managers with practical knowledge in the planning, execution and control of precast concrete construction. At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to plan and manage precast concrete construction site activities effectively.
