This seminar is part of a series of seminars by the Building and Construction Standards Committee to keep the local industry informed of changes and new standards. The Eurocodes have been implemented in Singapore since Apr 2015. It has been a learning journey for the local industry. In 2017, BSI has revised the Eurocodes and Singapore has followed up with the revisions. The revisions in Eurocode 7 Geotechnical Design will be shared with the local industry in this seminar. More importantly, some revisions that depart from BSI need to be made based on local experience.

Vital topics that will benefit plant designers and operators to achieve optimum pumping solutions in water and wastewater applications. With KSBs vast experience in this field, comprehensive research was conducted at Technical University of Berlin in Germany to establish guidelines on several aspects of pump station design and piping works. These guidelines will serve to equip the participants with good engineering practices and provide recommendations for building new pump stations or refurbishing the existing structures.

Most disputes between contracting parties of construction contracts mainly concern two basic issues, namely: (1) Does an order given by the contract administrator constitute ordering the contractor to perform works which are beyond the scope of works initially stated in the contract at the time when it was signed? and (2) Should the Date of Completion initially stated in the contract at the time it was entered into be postponed without penalising the contractor? It is because of different answers are given to these two question by different contracting parties that gives rise to these disputes. The real cause is the lack of true and thorough understanding or complete misunderstanding of the terms and conditions of the contract the contracting parties have entered into. Resulting from the aforesaid, considerable time and money have been unnecessarily spent in resolve these disputes; and in the course of doing so, lawyers have been enriched. This short course is organized with the view to help participants to establish such understanding

The new 43km Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) is part of Singapore Land Transport Authority's (LTA) vision to double the length of the island's railways system by 2030. The project will be opened in five phases from 2019 to 2024. The TEL will be completely underground, comprising of 31 stations connecting Gardens by the Bay in central Singapore with Woodlands in the north and Bedok in the east. The TEL will interchange with five existing metro lines at seven stations strategically located to help alleviate crowding. One of the key challenges with the project is that the Marina Bay area, through which the line will pass, is already densely populated with two pre-existing railway lines, the North-South Line and Circle Line, already in place.

The 30-km long Thomson Line will enhance rail connectivity in the north-south corridors to the Central Business District (CBD) and developments in the Marina Bay area. Fully underground, Thomson Line comprises 22 stations, including six interchange stations: Woodlands, Caldecott, Stevens, Orchard, Outram Park and Marina Bay. These interchange stations will link to the North-South-East-West Line (NSEWL), Downtown Line (DTL), North-East Line (NEL) and Circle Line (CCL), providing greater accessibility and significantly improve travel time for commuters.

Singapore and the South East Asia are developing infrastructure in a big way. There are many underground and tunnelling projects on going in this region. In Singapore, there are underground rail and road projects, underground commercial projects as well as underground services such as cable, water and sewer projects on going. Some of the major underground and tunnelling projects are such as MRT projects Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL), LTA North-South Expressway (NSE), PUB Deep Tunnel Sewerage System (DTSS) Projects. There are many risk factors in the underground and tunnelling projects in various aspects of design and construction. It is important to constantly remind ourselves the existence of many risk factors and what are the good practice to avoid and eliminate such risks. It is also important to constantly be reminded of the lesson learnt from past incidents and case histories, as well as all some good experience to learn from.

Glass has come to be a ubiquitous material, present in virtually all areas of buildings. As a construction material, glass is unique in many aspects, including its brittle nature, extreme longevity when handled correctly, and its unicity as a transparent material. This exceptional visit to a glass processing plant offers the opportunity for a small group of interested engineers to learn more about this unique material, its production method, its many different varieties, its uncommon structural behaviour, as well as specific production techniques.
