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.

The Construction industry has unfortunately seen 10 workplace fatalities from January to October 2021. This accounts for more than 30% of all workplace fatalities this year.The WSH Council, supported by the Ministry of Manpower, is organising the Construction WSH Leadership Dialogue 2021 to emphasize on the importance of prioritising WSH practices and tightening WSH measures for the upcoming festive period and into 2022.The Dialogue will provide thought provoking WSH leadership insights as we navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Webinar code: 80080Computational design approach enables built environment practitioners to explore wider design options and automate complex solutions efficiently for optimised project delivery. It has also been identified as one of the in-demand key skillsets for the sector towards digitalisation. In this webinar, you will hear from both local and international practitioners covering global trends of computational approach towards design and construction, real case studies of computational approach in integrated design including practical adoption of computational BIM at various levels of complexities, as well as to showcase various possibilities as a collaborative tool. Fees (incl. of GST): S$65.00 / S$10.33 (with WTU funding)

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.

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.
