Computational Design or Parametric Design enables architects and designers to explore more design options and variations leading to desired solution. This design approach also makes the creation of complex geometry possible and accurate. Exemplary projects adopting computational design approach will also be shared in this workshop.This 2-day workshop covers the practical applications, modelling workflow and integration of model with BIM software to enhance the design process. Participants will be equipped with practical computational design skills and technical knowledge through the hands-on sessions.

The Rapid Load Test (RLT) is gaining popularity in Asia as an alternative to the conventional Kentledge method for load testing of piles. RLT has advantages such as faster speed of testing, and requires smaller space and reaction loads to perform the test. This seminar covers the relevant codes and regulations, the principles, limitations, performance and reliability on RLT. The objective of this seminar is to provide industry with a better understanding on how the RLT can be used to improve site processes thereby increasing site productivity. The seminar also aims to educate industry on RTLs applications and its limitations.

Lean construction employs lean optimizations to the construction process to improve project performance and productivity. Lean means utilizing less resources, effort, cost, manpower, to achieve more value through optimizing processes by reducing wastes and uncertainty while maximizing customer satisfaction, In that way, it makes processes more stable, predictable and efficient. Studies have shown that the application of Lean construction methods in project delivery process has resulted in reduction of completion time by almost 30% and up to 15% reduction in costs. The Lean Construction Management Workshop Series aims to introduce to the industry the different Lean Construction approaches and methodologies through a series of bespoke workshops. Through this knowledge transfer, it is hoped that the industry practitioners would be able make more informed decision when choosing the suitable approaches for the company or project so as to enhance project delivery. In this workshop, participants will learn about the principles and tools which cover advance project planning practices involving short-term collective planning, pull scheduling, constraint management techniques and workflow optimization using cloud based real-time planning tools. Utilizing lean methodology and cloud based tool results in smoother production flow of construction activities and reduction of uncertainty across the project personnel and the different subcontractors involved in the project. Possibilities of combining Lean, cloud and mobile technologies and BIM are also covered which ultimately helps to boost the construction productivity in projects.

Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) is an integrated approach that combines Building Information Modelling (BIM) and advanced management methods to improve productivity. Speci?cally, it has been proven to increase pro?tability, improve reliability and predictability before project execution, hence enhancing project efficiency. The VDC certificate program was first introduced in 2008 by the Stanford Universitys Center for Integrated Facility Engineering (CIFE). The intended outcome of the program is to enable industry professionals to effectively apply VDC to obtain higher return for their businesses and capital projects. To date, hundreds of participants in North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia including Singapore have benefited from the program, many of whom have successfully implemented VDC in their projects.
