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.

The Certicate in Faade Inspection course is designed to equip participants with essential knowledge and skills in faade inspection. On top of legislative framework and requirements on faade inspection, participants will gain an in-depth understanding of the fundamentals of various faade systems and materials, their particular maintenance needs and inspection methods.

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. This one day course will be ideal for professional engineers, construction engineers, project managers, Consultants and other project team members who may wish to expand their technical knowledge of this specialised contract and site safety element

Development projects are increasingly demanding as the clients becomes more sophisticated and requires their project to be built with better productivity and sustainability. These materials and method of construction may be considered as a means to achieve sustainability and improve productivity under the right conditions. Stakeholders (Designers, Resident Engineers, Resident Technical Officers, Site Supervisors, etc) would need to have some understanding of how these materials and method can be used as they might be handling projects involving them.

Safety in construction sites is of paramount importance not only to protect oneself but also to ensure safety for fellow personnel on site. This programme is for stakeholders in construction projects (Resident Engineers, Resident Technical Officers, Site Supervisor etc) and it explains the concepts related to risk management & control which can be applied to activities on construction site. The programme also discusses safety management systems and safely audits and how to report and investigate accidents related to site activities. The programme will include safety management systems as prescribed in the Singapore Standards SS 506 series on Occupational safety and health (OSH) and CP 79

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.
