This webinar will provide an introduction to new Singapore Standards on Glazing in buildings Safety related to human impact (SS 653: 2020) and Curtain walls (SS 654 : 2020). Glazed elements in and around buildings may be subject to human impact, which could result in injury to the public and/or damage to finishes or other parts of the building. SS 653 provides the requirements to designers and installers of such glazed components on the materials and techniques to adopt in order to minimise the risk of injury to the public. This standard serves as a reference for the specification of glazed elements that may be subject to human impact. SS 654 specifies the materials and performance standards for metal-framed curtain walls and requirements for good practices in the design and installation of a curtain wall system. The performance standard includes tests for air permeability, water-tightness and structural performance. This webinar also highlights the major changes that are incorporated into this new standard compared with the previous SS 381 and CP 96.

Every startup needs an experienced hand and the right people to help them on the right path to growth. This aim of the course is to develop a pool of mentors and technopreneurs who are able to fulfil this function. This course is a workshop designed as a crash course for those who are interested to mentor or be involved in startups to be knowledgeable about startups. They will be introduced to the Singapore startup ecosystem, the concept and execution of an Acceleration program (introduction to the startup life cycle), the development of a Business Model, the roles and responsibilities of a Mentor, early-stage Investment, and understanding the importance and mechanics of Pitching.

[2 SGBC-GMAP CPD Points awarded] Driven by challenges brought about by the pandemic, the 2 built environment megatrends of digitalisation and sustainability are set to transform the way we design, build and operate our buildings. Technological innovations can help to monitor, rectify and refine operational issues, but thought needs to be put into their actual implementation to ensure optimal efficiency and efficacy.At the JTC-SGBC Joint Webinar this year, we will illustrate the value that artificial intelligence, machine learning and robotics can bring to the built environment. JTC will share the latest on their operation optimisation journey, bringing in 2 partners H3 and Elid Tech to elaborate on innovations in the area of condition monitoring and robotic maintenance. SGBC Member Green Koncepts will round off the session with an overview of how sustainability and efficiency outcomes can be achieved with an AI-enabled building management system.

The Code of Practice for Lightning Protection SS555: Parts 1 to 4, 2018 is a very comprehensive code of practice for the design, installation and maintenance of lightning protection systems. It is aligned to the IEC 62305: Parts 1 to 4, 2010 international standard on protection against lightning. Building and Construction Authority (BCA) has mandated that with effect from 1 May 2019, developments whose building plans are submitted on or after the date must comply with the relevant requirements in SS555:2018. In December 2020, an Amendment No. 1 was also issued for SS555:Part 3:2018

The course aims to provide participants with a thorough knowledge and understanding of how standby power generating systems operates through an automatic transfer switch monitors the AC voltage coming from the utility line for power failure conditions.Upon detection of an outage for a pre-determined period of time, the standby generator is started. After the generator is speed up to the rated speed, the load is transferred from the utility to the generator. Upon return of the utility feed, the load is switched back and the generator is stopped.Once this basic concept is understood, various standby power supply options will be examined and discussed. Thereafter, selection of a suitable generating set and determination of its output and input power and therefore the engine output in HP can be calculated and determined.Other topics of importance such as electrical equipment of diesel engine, engine cooling and engine room ventilation requirements, air requirements without engine cooling air, generators waste heat, combustion air, fuel oil supply to diesel engine, daily service tank, storage tank, fuel pumps, electrical switchgear and automatic control panel will be fully discussed.

This comprehensive 3 days preparation training course based on thenew issue of SS638(2018) - Requirements for Electrical Installations, isdesigned to help young and practicing electrical engineers who wants tohave a clear understanding of SS638 requirements. The scope of the course generally follows that of SS638 (2018), but it also contains materials not included in the new issue of SS638(2018) that are necessary to explain, expand upon and simplify the essential parts of the regulations, ensure high quality guidance that is simple, easy to follow and understanding of specific key topics.

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.
