This webinar will provide an introduction to new Singapore Standard on Ceramic wall and floor tiling (SS 665: 2020).This standard provides requirements for the design and installation of ceramic and mosaic floor and wall tiling in normal internal and external conditions. This standard also deals with classes and types of backgrounds and their suitability to receive tiling using the different fixing methods. This webinar also highlights the different types of tiles and common installationfailures, the different adhesive types and tips on installation as well as CONQUAS standards on tiling.

This program focuses on Artificial Intelligence or Fuzzy framework on Strategic FM services and Asset management in the form of data analytic, facilities cost management, green and smart building technologies that will produce voluminous amount of data, integration of active and passive designs for energy conservation management, and the realization of real time sustainability in building design for maintenance; as well as coordination and cooperation between disciplines in design, construction, project close out, project life cycle and whole life cost of Asset Management which is the essence of strategic Asset management and in collaboration with BIM and CAFM software application.In the digital age of creating a better building and facilities management team, a difference has grown between creating smart buildings and truly intelligent facilities management strategies. These strategies differ by being intuitive versus smart and self-managed versus manual activities. If you are not sure about your facilitys use of smart or intelligent facilities management practices, you need to ask yourself these questions.

Association of Consulting Engineers, Singapore

15 Sep 2021 to 15 Sep 2021

Continuing our series of seminars to help the industry appreciate the benefits of digitising the work processes. We are delighted to invite contractors from our industry to share the up-and-downs of their journey in digital delivery. The seminar hopes to hear from the contractors on what the consultants can adjust or improve on in order to streamline processes and avoid abortive design or construction work.CPD: 2 PDU

Building-based prevention and control measures have become one of the most important methods of fighting against disease and epidemic. The buildings heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are of particular importance as they directly contribute to a safe and healthy indoor environment for occupants. However, it is equally important that energy efficiency is not compromised and therefore, paramount that HVAC systems be optimised for both energy efficiency and health outcomes.In this SGBC Webinar supported by SGBC Member Armstrong Fluid Technology, learn about how HVAC efficiency can be enhanced and ensured in our buildings as the country moves towards greater reopening. SGBC Members Squire Mech and Keppel DHCS will also share insights and case studies on implementing HVAC strategies for the new normal.

Contractors and builders would have to face the Authorities and even the media when such incidents take place. On site, project owners and contractors look to the contract and particularly the insurance coverage for compensation.However, construction contracts are normally left to the specialists Consultants, Quantity Surveyors and even Lawyers to advise. The need for insurance and indemnity for the Client is specified in the Contract but engineers do not pay much attention to this contractual issue. Building codes and specifications have to meet in order for the insurance policy to respond. Often when something goes wrong on site, these insurance documents are sought upon to look for financial compensation.

The Workplace Safety and Health (Design for Safety) Regulations 2015 came into operation on 1st August 2016. Besides the employment of a Design for Safety Professional, other personnel such as architects, engineers, designers involve in various engineering professions in the project are also required to eliminate or mitigate all foreseeable design risks to as low as reasonably practicable to any person affected by the project under the Regulations.

The regulatory requirement for Design-for-Safety (DfS) was enforced since August 2016. It requires stakeholders to work together to address foreseeable risks right from the conceptual design to the construction of the project. During the construction stage, the DfS review meetings will involve the design & supervision team from the Consultants and construction team from the Contractor. They will participate in reviewing safety and health risks relating to design and propose mitigation measures for implementation.

While we are aware that it is not the responsibility of the architect/designer to maintain the facility upon its completion, this is not fully appreciated during the design process. When design decisions are made without regard to the maintenance perspective, it can often lead to a facility that incurs more cost to maintain or that has components that simply cannot be maintained. As facilities are completed, the owner's maintenance responsibilities begin and increase with the ageing of the facilities. The lack of maintainability is sometimes further aggravated by man power shortage and budget reductions.Given the maintenance issues that can arise, a fundamental understanding that facilities can be designed to be more maintainable will lead to lower cost of operation and higher safety during the entire building life.The objective of this course is to provide all stakeholders of a project the understanding and techniques when designing a facility to achieve high maintainability and productivity post construction.

It is quite common that large companies and government organizations house all their servers, storage devices, and info-communication systems in a wall-developed infrastructure setup called a Data Centre. In the recent times, data centres have taken on an increasingly central role in the progress of two parallel areas of rapidly growing global societal interest. Internet delivered information technology (IT) systems and telecommunications systems. In an energy efficiency point of view, data centres are highly energy intensive especially when they have to be operated round the clock. As a result, for the sustainable operation of data centres, the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) has setup the Green Data Centre Technology Roadmap. The Roadmap aims to reduce energy consumption of the constituent systems of a data centre. Most existing data centres in Singapore were designed and constructed without sustainability and energy conservation in mind. In future, it is expected that the Singapore data centre industry would experience strong and sustained growth. Therefore, it is very much imperative to develop a better understanding of the data centre system in an energy efficiency point of view. This course aims to help the Singapore Certified Energy Manager (SCEMs) to have a basic understanding of the data centres and their energy efficiency.
