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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
