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.

This Executive Development Programme will address the importance of striking a balance between the sustainability of our physical environment as well as the conservation of our cultural and built heritage. It will provide a balanced understanding of the green agenda that goes beyond the triple bottom line to also address the cultural, spatial and technological issues that beset our built environment. In particular, this course will: demonstrate how the principles of sustainability can be applied in the conservation, restoration and adaptation of historic structures, focus on integrating the conservation of the built heritage into urban and regional planning as a means of enhancing heritage tourism, explore ways in which tested building and conservation techniques still meet emerging standards for sustainability and energy conservation and provide an insight into how indigenous building materials and passive design techniques help in retaining local cultural identity. The 5-day programme comprises lectures, walking tours and a workshop to provide participants with a deep understanding on sustainability issues such as reducing carbon footprint in both micro and macro scales, as well as issues on heritage conservation and restoration. In addition, the lateral lectures in the evenings will provide inspiring insights into the parallel between some other industries, such as haircutting, with the built environment sector.

Singapore has embarked on the journey towards becoming the worlds first Smart Nation, seeking to support better living and stronger communities, and create more opportunities. To co-create this future of Singapore, the built environment sector could play a crucial role in turning Singapore into a Smart City.Similar to Singapore, Denmark has an ambitious goal for the country: to be the first carbon-neutral country in the world by 2050. Smart City projects have been carried out in many Danish towns and cities, and Denmark has been identified to have the opportunity to become a world leader in smart cities. In the European Smart Cities ranking, three Danish cities, namely Aarhus, Aalborg and Odense, are ranked within the top 10 smartest cities.To leapfrog Singapores smart city development, the DTU-BCA Executive Development Programme 2016 on Smart and Sustainable Cities will allow the delegates to be immersed in the Danish cities and the smart solutions implemented in the living labs, so as to have a deeper understanding on the various aspects of a Smart City, such as smart energy, smart building and smart technology.The 5-day programme comprises lectures conducted by the Academia from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), as well as visits to remarkable sites such as the UN City Complex, Energinet, Danish Industry and Carlsberg Byen in Copenhagen and Fyn.
