This seminar presents the theoretical background with practical considerations of the direct analysis method of design with examples given on its concept and practical application to complex structures beyond the applicability of the effective length method when the buckling load factor is less than 10 or 5. Experience in using the method for practical design of structures will also be shared

Since the launch of the BCA Green Mark Scheme in Jan 2005, several revisions were made to the Green Mark criteria. To ensure that the industry practitioners remains relevant and up-to-date, this half-day Green Mark Refresher Course is launched to keep industry practitioners abreast with the latest development and update of the Green Mark scheme and related initiatives.

International Conference on Soft Ground Engineering (ICSGE2015) is jointly organized by the Geotechnical Society of Singapore (GeoSS), the Centre for Soft Ground Engineering (CSGE) at National University of Singapore (NUS), and the Building and Construction Authority (BCA). The ICSGE2015 offers a platform for engineers and researchers to interact and share experience on geotechnical design and construction issues in soft ground.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) allows the building professionals of various disciplines to explore the building project digitally, before it is built. BIM can help to bring about greater integration and collaboration among the developers, designers, builders and fabricators across the construction value chain. BIM has been identified as one of the key technologies to be promoted under BCAs S$250-million Construction Productivity and Capability Fund (CPCF), which is part of the Governments efforts to help the construction industry improve productivity and enhance its capability. As such, BCA has drawn up a roadmap for the implementation of BIM on a large scale in the building and construction industry. Starting with architectural BIM e-submissions in 2013, BCA will mandate electronic submissions in BIM format for architectural, structural and M&E plans of building works for regulatory approval by 2015. This 2-Day BIM Planning Course is designed to address BIM uses and approaches for building developers and facility managers.

Singapore's 3rd Green Building Masterplan has identified the need to measure the environmental impact of buildings through its carbon footprint.The latest revision to BCA Green Mark 2015 will accord recognition for the reporting of embodied carbon of Building Materials as well as for the Building Project. SGBCs Singapore Green Building Product (SGBP) labelling scheme will also be supporting the BCA Green Mark scheme by including the carbon emissions of building products as a key criterion for assessing the environmental performance of products. Jointly organised by SGBC and BCAs Centre for Sustainable Buildings and Construction (CSBC), the course is specially designed for the Building Industry. It provides an in-depth understanding of the carbon footprint of buildings and the products and materials therein. The course will impart the skills to enable participants to assess the environmental impact of their buildings and products.Delivered through both classroom and hands-on practice, participants will learn robust and reliable methodologies in compliance with international standards to effectively communicate environmental performance of building projects and products.

Connections form a very important part of any steel structure and integrity of the structure depends on them. Accurate details and specifications are required for fabrication to ensure trouble-free erection. The workshop will focus on connection design specifications as per the new SS EN 1993 (Eurocode 3): Part 1-8: Design of joints. Results of recent research on steel connections detailing and fabrication will also be introduced. The course will be taught with practical examples of connection designs which are reliable as well as economical.

The global economic conditions remain uncertain. Economic headwinds in China, the worlds largest economy, is becoming increasingly challenging; USAs growth has been slow and sluggish; East Asia economies have also been experiencing deflationary pressure for years. All these developments in the world will have direct impact in Singapores economy and firms. Singapores Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) has recently revised our GDP growth forecast downward. Against a backdrop of economic uncertainties, what is next for Singapores built environment then? What are the opportunities and threats for the built environment in Singapore? What strategies should our industry stakeholders adopt for 2016 and beyond in order to sustain and expand their businesses? Beyond Singapore, where are the next hotspots for growth? These questions will be addressed by prominent experts at the seminar.
