The construction of the first large scale building in Singapore which adopted Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) and Glued Laminated Timber (Glulam), the NTU Sports Hall, will complete soon. The Sports Hall uses CLT for the finishes and flooring and Glulam for the beams, columns and the long span roof structure. The unique 72 m-long span roof structure provides eight times better thermal insulation than concrete, reducing the building energy consumption by about 40%. While reaping the benefits of improved productivity and sustainability, the project team has also overcame many challenges along the way. The experience which they have gone through would provide good learning points for the industry. In this workshop, representatives from the Project Developer, C&S Engineer, Subcontractor and Timber Suppliers will share their project experience and learning points throughout the design, manufacturing, transportation and construction stages. A time-lapse video illustrating the construction of the 72 m-long span timber roof structure will be shown. Short site visit will also be arranged for the participants to feel and experience for themselves this remarkable project.

The mandatory provision of civil defence (CD) shelters for all new residential developments started in 1998. Owners have the option of providing household shelter within the dwelling unit or storey shelter on each floor. The staircase shelter concept was later introduced to allow for alternative design for architects and designers with more design options in building development with respect to space planning, building configurations and apartment unit design layout.This workshop will provide participants with insights of good CD shelter design and construction practices in compliance with technical requirements. Salient changes and revisions made to the storey shelter technical requirements will also be covered in the workshop.

Smoke control systems are necessary in most buildings to provide the occupants safe evacuation passages in an unlikely but possible fire situation, and to clear the smoke after the fire incident. An effective smoke control system is one which is well-integrated with other fire protection features such as detection systems, compartmentation and evacuation, forming the integral parts of a comprehensive smoke management strategy. This 2-day workshop, jointly offered by BCA Academy and Protective Technology Research Centre (PTRC) of the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), aims to reinforce the concept of smoke management as part of comprehensive fire strategy development and the design strategy of smoke ventilation system. This knowledge will be useful for Fire Safety Engineers, Design Engineer and Architects.
