The Specialist Diploma in MEP Modularisation (SDMM) is a 9-month programme developed to be in line with Governments effort to increase overall construction productivity capabilities in the MEP sector. SDMM focuses on Off-site Prefabrication of Modular Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing Systems (MMS) aka MEP Modularisation. SDMMs first module introduces learners to the principles of MEP coordination. It provides an overview of the MEP system design and material selection; followed by installation and testing; and finally, operations and maintenance. The subsequent module covers good practices in MMS ranging from 3 broad modular frame designs: modular run, modular riser and modular platform. It also establishes guidelines on how different MEP services are allocated within the frame as well as recommended sizes, type of materials and minimum services needed for cost effectiveness. Advanced jointing services for MEP are also studied for their efficacy inenhancing productivity as well as their long-term impact based on cost-benefits analysis. BIM Modelling tools will be used for MEP systems design and analysis. Programming tools will also be introduced to enhance BIM MEP design. There will be practicum to address some of the potential challenges that could be faced by Designers, Consultants and Fabricators. External guest speakers specialising in components for MMS will also be invited to share their experiences. Finally, students will embark on a 4-month graded project based on designing a full range of MMS solutions for a specific building type.

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.

WHY CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT?Every construction project combines a variety of complex challenges. Managing a project requires a combination of technical understanding of construction processes and resource management, as well as managing their legal and financial aspects.WHY STUDY WITH US?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 conceptualized 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.
