The objective of the course is to impart knowledge to the participant on the causes, prevention, inspection and rectification of cracks in concrete. In particular, cracking in concrete is explained and the allowance of its formation in design is covered. Cracks formed arising from workmanship issues are also covered. Appropriate references will be made to the Singapore Standard SS EN 1992 series on Eurocode 2 Design of concrete structures that allow cracks to form and possible ways of preventing cracking is also covered. Emphasis on how to assess the severity of the crack through a methodological approach is covered. Finally, various methods of rectification of the crack lines are covered including the appropriateness of the method to the type and nature of the crack being considered.

Building envelopes have repeatedly been in the limelight over the past few months as a result of multiple failure events involving material defects, fire performance issue or poor workmanship. The Institution of Engineers, Singapore is organising a seminar on faade engineering. The intention of this seminar is to raise the awareness of participants in the various facets of faade engineering. This seminar is addressed to professional engineers, IES members and any other engineers with an interest in gaining a greater understanding of faade engineering. Topics covered will include the engineering of aluminium, glass, fire performance, and anchoring technology.

To provide individuals, from introverts to polished speakers, with the tools and techniques needed to become more influential communicators. By applying Pinnacles innovative, three-step process (Intention-Based Communication), it shows how focusing on your message's objective and delivery will allow you to achieve specific audience reactions, captivate your audience and communicate like a true leader.

SS 631 specifies minimum performance requirements for unpainted and prepainted metal products intended to be fabricated for use in the building industry in exterior applications such as roofing, wall cladding, soffits and awnings. It covers the use of galvanized, zinc/aluminium, prepainted profile in steel and aluminium. It is intended to be read in conjunction with manufacturers technical product literature. It provides guidelines, information and recommendations to the specifier and end user on the design, performance, installation, transportation and handling of metalroofing material.SS 637 covers systems commonly used for waterproofing of reinforcedconcrete buildings. It contains sections of waterproofing of basement, floor,wall, roof and precast concrete elements. It provides guidance on waterproofing against with or without hydrostatic pressure and against moisture from the ground.

This course aims to present an overview of the indoor air quality health hazards that may be encountered by personnel on a construction site environment, addressing questions such as: What are some indoor air contaminants and where do they come from? How do these contaminants get into the body, and what are the health effects they can cause? Finally, what are some measures and good work practices that can be taken to address these indoor air quality concerns?

Collapse is every engineers worst nightmare. Fortunately, not every engineer must go through the experience of a collapse first-hand as we can all learn from the mistakes of others. This course aims to impart knowledge by way of sharing examples of structural engineering failures so engineers can learn how not to repeat such mistakes. It will also cover the relevant areas of SS EN 1992 series on Design of Concrete Structures, with reference to structural engineering failures

Construction industries in Singapore are highly regulated especially in relation to safety health and environment. It is therefore very essential that the key stakeholders including site supervisors (REs & RTOs) in the engineering building construction (ECB) industries are equipped and acquainted with up-to-date knowledge of the legal aspects of Workplace Safety, Health and Environment and are fully aware and conscious of their legal responsibilities and liabilities in order to carry out their work & duties diligently, carefully and effectively.This particular module will provide participants with an up-to-date essential knowledge of Singapore's laws and regulations on site safety, health & environmental requirements relevant to the EBC industries and the legal responsibilities and possible of site supervisors.

The aim of the event is to keep engineers in the process industries (Oil, Petrochemical, Fine Chemicals, Utilities, Pharmaceuticals, Food Processing) informed of the new Skills framework for these industries and how they can get peer recognition through the IES Chartered Engineer scheme.For CAPE/ OPEC Chartered Engineer, disciplines include Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Instrumentation & Control, HSE, EPC and Consultancy.
