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.

LAST CALL FOR ENTRIES : The Build Smart Conference provides a platform for practitioners from different disciplines to gain insights of overseas and local advancement towards construction productivity, its technologies, processes and concepts, business case, as well as exemplary projects. Launched in 2011, the Build Smart Conference has been a key event, which is an industry-wide campaign to raise awareness in enhancing construction productivity. The theme for this year revolves around Unlocking Innovation through Digital Transformation focusing on technological advancement and best practices in Integrated Digital Delivery (IDD). The international and local experts will share on their experiences on topics such as application of digitisation through exemplary international and local IDD projects that enhance our construction productivity.

Singapore has designated 2018 as the Year of Climate Action. In recognition of this important initiative, the seminar will address the challenges and technological solutions related to the sustainable functioning of cooling towers in buildings. These technologies seek to minimise the use of water, energy, and chemicals (and by extension, toxicity levels), while still eliminating microbial contamination in order to ensure high indoor air quality.

The Green and Gracious Builder Scheme (GGBS) was launched in February 2009 to raise the environmental consciousness and professionalism in builders. The GGBS small and medium construction (SMC) was introduced in April 2014 to encourage SMC firms to work in a smart and responsible manner. GGBS is also a benchmark of a builders corporate social responsibility to the environment and the general public. Apart from setting standards for green and gracious practices, it also helps to improve the image of the builders and the built environment sector.

The BCA Design and Engineering Safety Award was launched in May 2008 to give recognition to the Qualified Person for Structural Works [QP(ST)], QP(ST)s firm and the project team for ingenious design processes and solutions in overcoming project challenges to ensure safety in design, construction and maintenance of building and civil engineering projects locally and overseas.

A strategic decision normally entails trade-off in multiple factors, e.g. human resource, equipment, cost, and risk. In a rapidly changing environment, decisions have to be made with incomplete and imperfect information. Knowledge extracted from data, either small or big, using artificial intelligence and related methodologies provides useful insights such that informed decisions could be made in complex and dynamic environments.In this talk, the speaker will share his experience in designing and developing computational intelligence models, primarily neural, fuzzy, and evolutionary algorithms for data analytics anddecision support. He will also elucidate the capability of using intelligent learning models for extracting useful information and knowledge from small to big data to support human decisionmaking processes. Real-world case studies in healthcare and manufacturing domains will be demonstrated.
