Seminar Brief:While structural safety of buildings in Singapore has been enhanced over the years, building failure during construction do occur from time to time. With land use being intensified, the structural system of buildings are becoming more complex, often involving multi-level of load transfer. The publication Buildings: What can go wrong is a compilation of past failures in projects within Singapore, some of which resulted in loss of life and property damage. A curated list of local cases from this book and some overseas cases will be shared during the seminar. As mistakes in design and construction are being repeated, it is imperative that we continuously learn from past events; and for these lessons to serve as a reminder to the industry as we strive for a safe Built Environment.

Design risk can be managed effectively by identifying the hazard and controlling the risk through Design for Safety (DfS) reviews during project development.Designing for safety should start at the early stage of a project whereby key stakeholders will review the design progressively to identify hazards on the building layout, materials used and construction methods etc. so as to enhance the safety of the project for construction as well as operation and maintenance.
