Underground and related structures are of great significance to the local construction industry. Many structures have to be built below ground and their design and construction are of importance to those in the civil engineering profession.Resident Engineers and Resident Technical Officers need to be familiar with the construction and supervision of underground and associated structures, as such foundations, basements, tunnels and earth-retaining structures.

This course covers topics rarely covered to any great extent at undergraduate level. The emphasis is on hand-based methods. They can be used directly for design or for the checking of computer-based designs. However, rather than just providing an alternate design method of equal difficulty to conventional procedures, it will be found that many problems can be tackled surprisingly easily using these powerful methods. The methods are an aid to understanding. Many worked examples are presented showing how the various methods can be used. The emphasis is on the use of the methods for practical problem solving, so little theory is presented. Appropriate reference will also be made to SS EN 1992 series on Design of Concrete Structures

This particular module will discuss the background of this Court of Appeal case and its direct impact on site supervisors as well as their employers. The course will also provide participants with an up-to-date essential knowledge of Singapores laws on negligence and the common law duty of RTO & RE (as well as engineers and other technical professional s) which are relevant to the engineering building construction (ECB) industries and are faced by or connected with ECB projects.

Terrorism has become a serious threat in the world. This threat cannot be ignored. The main terrorist weapon is a bomb made from high explosives, with civilian buildings being a common target. Terrorists usually want to create chaos and maximize casualties. A growing emphasis is therefore being placed on anti-terrorism protection of civilian buildings. In Singapore, it has been recognized that iconic structures as well as structures where mass congregation is likely, may be soft targets for attack. Thus blast provisions are now an integral part of the design of major civilian facilities, e.g. hospitals, large hotels, shopping centres, stadia etc. In addition, buildings housing critical infrastructure, e.g. electrical sub-stations, are other likely targets.

2 DAYS COURSE:This intensive course comprising lectures and case studies will enable participants to acquire sound technical knowledge of site risk management and appreciate how the construction insurance coverage is triggered. Technical aspects of the physical site work such as design and codes of practice will be addressed in relation to issues of dealing with the Contractor's All Risk (C.A.R) policy aspects during this session. Risk management on project sites will also be given adequate attention as these are essential to meet the policy conditions and clauses. Active learning concepts will be used to share the above subject matter with the participants.

Graduate Certificate program in Construction Productivity Enhancement is open to any Bachelor degree holders, in particular B.Eng. (Civil Engineering) degree and B.Eng. (Environmental Engineering with minor in Civil Infrastructure), or equivalent. It aims at providing knowledge and competitive edge in productivity enhancement as well as in virtual design and construction. Further value-added skills in evaluating economics feasibility and risks in projects will also become an essential part of the programme.
