Description

RICS is pleased to invite you to attend the half-day seminar on Wednesday 18 July 2018.

In Singapore, improving productivity has become an important aspect for the construction industry. Higher productivity would strengthen its social standing and long-term development, and within the construction company itself, it would mean greater efficiency, lower costs and increased competitiveness.

Using technologies have become essential in improving construction productivity and there is more than just one type of technology in the construction today. This upcoming RICS half- day seminar invites local experts to share and discuss on how Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction (PPVC) and Integrated Digital Delivery (IDD) improve construction productivity.

More information on PPVC and IDD

Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction (PPVC)

  • A technology that supports the DfMA concept to significantly speed up construction.

  • Not new in Singapore, but builders are still resistant to use PPVC in their construction despite of the government land sale sites mandate.

  • According to BCA, PPVC can potentially achieve a productivity improvement of up to 40% in manpower and time savings.

Integrated Digital Delivery (IDD)

  • One of the Singapore government strategies in the Construction Industry Transformation.

  • An integrated process of the stakeholders in the construction value chain through Information Communication Technology (ICT) and smart technologies.

  • Its Construction-Led-Design (CLD) move towards construction productivity and collaborative contracts.
