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.

In any large-scale public or private housing developments, physical infrastructure such as earthworks, roads, drains, sewers and utilities, arecritically needed not only to enable the physical development of but also support modern community living in the new housing estates. Equip participants with the fundamental knowledge in infrastructure planning by introducing them to the key aspects in the planning processes.

The current pandemic has caused disruptions to work and life. To reduce the spread of virus, several safe management measures have been introduced by the authorities. Such measures are implemented by organisations to safeguard their workers and management in order to continue with their operations. To facilitate organisations to implement safe measurement measures during the current pandemic as well as any future similar pandemics, a Technical Reference (TR) has been developed which collates and introduces various measures into a single document which will provide a useful guideline in managing such pandemic for completed buildings and facilities. The TR focuses on the design and planning of the building and services, managing the cleaning and maintenance operations, and reoccupation of the building, and emergency preparedness to be taken as well as planning for business continuity. The use of technology to facilitate such operations is highlighted. This webinar will be of benefit to facility and property managers and other executives in organisations who are responsible for handling and managing such pandemic for the safety and welfare of the workers and occupants as well as visitors to the premises.Who Should Attend?Architects and designersProfessional engineersQualified persons (QPs)FM professionals Cleaning and disinfecting service providers

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

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.
