QUALITY AND PRODUCTIVITY SEMINAR 2017
With the raising quality expectations and tightening of manpower supply, there is a need to continuously improve the overall quality and productivity within the built environment sector.
Jointly organised by BCA and REDAS, this annual event aims to showcase the latest construction materials and technologies. Speakers will also share their experience and best practices adopted in achieving higher construction quality and productivity.
Good Industry Practices Guide on Agglomerated Stone Tiling will also be launched during the seminar.
TOPICS AND SPEAKERS
1. LAUNCH OF GOOD INDUSTRY PRACTICES GUIDE ON AGGLOMERATED STONE TILING
Mr Ken Ho, Senior Manager, Quality and Certification Department, BCA
Due to its favourable properties of consistency in tonality and wider choices of finishes, agglomerated stones has become a popular alternate choice of tiling in Singapore. The Good Industry Practices Guide on Agglomerated Stones Tiling was developed to provide guidance to the industry on the design considerations, quality checks and proper installation methods of such tiling system.
2. GOOD PRACTICES IN THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF PREFABRICATED BATHROOM UNITS
Er Rose Nguan, Director, Mechanisation and Productivity Measurement Department, BCA
As one of the possible construction systems of integrated components along the DfMA continuum, the use of the Prefabricated Bathroom Unit (PBU) system has significantly contributed to productivity gains at trade levels for many projects. This session aims to bring awareness to the good practices in the design and construction of PBU, and the productivity benefits created when these practices are implemented from the start of the design stage.
3. ACHIEVING CONQUAS STAR FOR SEA ESTA AND KOVAN REGENCY
Mr Benjamin Cheuk Yan Kin, Senior Manager (Projects), Straits Construction Singapore Pte Ltd
Straits Construction Singapore had opted to adopt the requirements in the 8th edition of CONQUAS for the Sea Esta and Kovan Regency private residential developments to better meet the expectations of the residents and to boost the productivity of the site. Mr Cheuk will be sharing the experience gained from the process of adopting and meeting the CONQUAS requirements as well as presenting the tangible benefits observed at the conclusion of the defects liability periods for the two projects.
4. ACHIEVING PRODUCTIVITY AND QUALITY IN PPVC
Mr Allan Tan, Executive Director, Dragages Singapore Pte Ltd
In the construction industry, often the gain in quality would be at the expense of productivity, or vice versa. By adopting Prefabricated Pre-finished Volumetric Construction (PPVC) approach for the Crowne Plaza Hotel and Woodlands Nursing Home projects, Dragages managed to mitigate the constraints. Mr Tan believes PPVC is still an evolving technique with many challenges to be addressed. In his presentation, he will share the experiences and lessons learned from these 2 projects.
5. PRODUCTIVITY, QUALITY AND SAFETY IN INTEGRATED FIRE-RATED WALL CLADDING SYSTEM
Mr Gregor Novak, Regional Sales Director, Industrial Links International Pte Ltd
Mr Novak will present how pre-fabricated insulated façade system is able to reduce building energy consumption, lower insurance premium with approved fire-rating as well as reduction or elimination of additional structure support and pre-finished interior. In addition, he will also highlight how the simple and high speed erection of such pre-fabricated insulated façade system enables a low reliance or skilled labours to deliver quality finish.
6. CAPITAGREEN: A COLLABORATIVE EFFORTS AND SYNERGY OF GOOD DESIGN AND PROJECT EXECUTION
Mr Alan Chew, AVP. Project Management, CapitaLand Singapore Limited & Mr Leslie Teng, Project Manager, Takenaka Corporation
Mr Chew and Mr Teng will jointly present the construction productivity and universal design undertaken by Takenaka and CapitaLand in the award winning CapitaGreen project. Both companies have played a significant role in shaping and influencing the built environment through their collaborative efforts. CapitaGreen is a good example of using precast elements and a structural steel system, which allowed for faster installation on site, better quality control, as well as lesser noise and dust pollution. The development also adopted several construction technologies that were used in Singapore for the first time, including the use of 3.5-metre bored piles so as to reduce the number of piles needed, increasing the efficiency of installation works. In addition, the development’s Universal Design Mark Platinum Award recognised the clever use of seamless design to assist the hearing, visually & mobility-impaired occupants within the building.
