Singapore Green Building Council

2 Jul 2020 to 30 Jul 2020

The built environment, responsible for more than a third of global carbon emissions, is in a prime position to address climate challenges through low-carbon and net-zero building principles. The World Green Building Council (WorldGBC)s Advancing Net Zero (ANZ) project aims to consolidate and catalyse action across the globe, and highlight leadership action in total sector decarbonisation. Through a combination of thought leadership and direct intervention action, the global project aims for buildings to be Net Zero Energy by 2030 and for all buildings to be Net Zero Carbon by 2050.In this 3-part webinar series, hear perspectives on going net zero from different stakeholders in the built environment value chain, the possible pathways towards net zero and how challenges can be addressed.A roundtable discussion with the WorldGBC ANZ team will be held after the 3rd webinar session to help translate notion into action and for the WorldGBC to share about the Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment. Registration for the roundtable is complimentary, and separate from the webinar registration and will be shared once finalised.

The adoption of Building Information Modelling (BIM) during the design and construction stages has transformed our construction industry significantly. However, there are more from BIM that the industry could benefit from, especially in the areas of building operation and asset information management.This 2-day course will enable participants to appreciate how the convergence of BIM and Internet of Things (IoT) could change the way buildings are designed, built, operated and maintained. The lecturer will also demonstrate how BIM and IoT could automate the integration of various building systems and enable smart operation and maintenance.

The World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) announced a bold vision to address climate change - by 2030, all new buildings, infrastructure and renovations will have at least 40% less embodied carbon with significant upfront carbon reduction, and all new buildings are net zero operational carbon. Come 2050, new buildings, infrastructure and renovations will have net zero embodied carbon, and all buildings, including existing buildings, must be net zero operational carbon.Through the Balancing the Net Zero Equation SGBC Webinar series held in July 2020, industry experts have covered decarbonisation efforts in the Asia Pacific and shared crucial perspectives from the built environment's key stakeholders. In this special SGBC virtual roundtable, gather deep insights and actionable knowledge to begin your own net zero journey.

With the rapid global infrastructure development, there is a new focus on sustainable usage of concrete. Using supplementary cementitious materials (SCM) like silica fume, pulverized fuel ash or ground granulated blast furnace slag to replace or compliment cement is one practical area to achieve sustainability which is gaining importance. Stakeholders in construction industry (Owners, Architects, Engineers, Resident Technical Officers, Site Supervisors etc) are handling more demanding and complex projects in current development projects and may involve working with SCM. This programme aims to provide information on the nature of these SCM and the resulting properties of concrete batched using such materials to participants to allow them to better execute their projects.

Institution of Engineers, Singapore

1 Sep 2020 to 16 Oct 2020

The professional course on erosion control will lead to accreditation of professional engineers as Qualified Erosion Control Professionals (QECPs).The duties and responsibilities of a QECP include designing erosion and sedimentation control measures in construction sites and preparing plans. Submission plans to PUB shall be submitted by a registered QECP.
