Under the Green Mark criteria, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation is required and encompasses 4 segments namely, ventilation simulation, thermal comfort, indoor air quality simulation and wind driven rain. As CFD simulation software for commercial projects and outsourcing of simulation can be costly, it would be beneficia for companies and professionals to equip themselves with knowledge on CFDs open source software, OpenFOAM.In the course on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Simulation Using Open Source Software, participants will acquire the knowledge on CFD, OpenFOAM as an open source software as well as the experience needed to start their own CFD projects using OpenFOAM. There will be planned tutorials to guide participants through all aspect of the software.

2-Day Practical Course on Safety Data Analytics to Improve Workplace Safety & Health Performance | INTRODUCTIONData Analytics is one of the emerging frontier technologies that our workforce needs training in to acquire skills to analyse available data. Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) works involve enormous data in the form of inspection reports, incident reports, safety behaviours indicators, procurement data, etc., that can be analysed with suitable data analytics tools to arrive at outcomes that can be used to improve work productivity and WSH performance at workplaces. Safety analytics can predict and prevent workplace safety incidents, thus saving lives, money and organisations reputation which goes beyond the conventional dashboards and safety reports of past incidents or accidents.

By 2030, the United Nations predicts that cities will house 60% of people globally*, and one in every three people will live in cities with at least half a million inhabitants. As Asian cities continues to experience growth at a rapid rate, indeed there is a significant opportunity to build infrastructure needed to accommodate this growth. Yet, we are seeing surmounting economic challenges as well as tensions between major trade relationships around the world. Closer to home, how will the built environment in Singapore perform in 2019? What are the opportunities, challenges and prospects for the Singapore built environment? How should companies prepare themselves during such unpredictable times? What should built environment firms look out for locally and beyond Singapore? Once again, we bring together prominent economist, policy makers and industry experts to address these burning questions at this annual flagship event.*World Urbanisation Prospects 2018, United Nations, Department of Economic and Social Affairs.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) has become one of the most exciting developments in the building and construction industry in recent years. As an integrated design and documentation tool used to enhance communication and collaboration among all the project stakeholders, BIM has already begun changing the way architects, engineers, contractors and building owners work together. With strategic implementation, BIM will significantly improve the design and construction process through more integrated project coordination. BIM has also been identified as one of the key technologies to be adopted under BCAs S$250-million Construction Productivity and Capability Fund (CPCF) to help the local construction industry improve productivity and enhance its capability.The Specialist Diploma in Building Information Modeling (BIM) aims to impart in-depth knowledge on BIM fundamentals and develop strategic skills for BIM project planning and implementation. It will focus on BIM applications for effective design analysis, productive design and construction coordination and holistic facility management. BIM standards and guidelines as well as BIM project case studies will also be included in this course.Upon graduation, participants can look forward to career opportunities as BIM Project Coordinators, BIM Modelers/Operators, BIM Consultants/ Specialists, and BIM Managers.

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.

Learners of this course will gain the knowledge and skills for fulfilling the roles of the construction Design for Safety Professional (DfS Professional) in accordance with the WSH (DfS) Regulations effective from 1 August 2016. Upon completion of this unit, Learners will have the skills and knowledge to function as a DfS Professional which purposes to: (1) Assist the Developer to identify and address means to eliminate or mitigate the risks inherent in the design of a construction project through conducting DfS review meetings and maintaining a DfS register so as to reduce the safety and health risks during the construction, maintenance / repair phase, and demolition of the building and structure; and (2)Coordinate the flow of the construction project safety and health risks information among the stakeholders from the design stage, to construction stage until the handover to the Developer for occupation and maintenance.The skill and knowledge learnt during this course are likely to be applied in the following activities: (1) Facilitate DfS Review Meeting that involves the relevant stakeholders to identify and address safety and health risks associated with construction project. (2) Maintain records of safety and health issues arising from the DfS Review Meeting and actions taken. (3) Coordinate the flow of relevant safety and health information among all stakeholders of a construction project at appropriate time.

The Bachelor of Construction Management (Building)(Honours) will equip you with the skills and knowledge to manage complexities in construction projects both in Singapore and across the world. The programme incorporates substantial Building Information Modelling (BIM) teaching and projects which offer a niche specialty beyond the construction management discipline. This would give the graduates a solid foundation to pursue wide career choice as BIM Managers, Project Managers, Quantity Surveyors and Facility Managers. The degree programme is conceptualised to be a problem-based learning pedagogy to train students to solve real world challenges, develop holistic understanding of construction project environment and portable life-long learning skills. To offer an accelerated pathway, an advanced standing articulation would be eligible for students with relevant diploma qualifications.
