Specialist Diploma in MEP Modularisation (SDMM)

Event code: 79019


The Specialist Diploma in MEP Modularisation (SDMM) is a 9-month
programme developed to be in line with Government’s effort to increase
overall construction productivity capabilities in the MEP sector. SDMM focuses
on Off-site Prefabrication of Modular Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing
Systems (MMS) aka MEP Modularisation. SDMM’s first module introduces
learners to the principles of MEP coordination. It provides an overview of
the MEP system design and material selection; followed by installation and
testing; and finally, operations and maintenance. The subsequent module
covers good practices in MMS ranging from 3 broad modular frame designs:
modular run, modular riser and modular platform. It also establishes
guidelines on how different MEP services are allocated within the frame as
well as recommended sizes, type of materials and minimum services needed
for cost effectiveness. Advanced jointing services for MEP are also studied
for their efficacy in enhancing productivity as well as their long-term impact
based on cost-benefits analysis. BIM Modelling tools will be used for MEP
systems design and analysis. Programming tools will also be introduced
to enhance BIM MEP design. There will be practicum to address some of
the potential challenges that could be faced by Designers, Consultants and
Fabricators. External guest speakers specialising in components for MMS will
also be invited to share their experiences. Finally, students will embark on a
4-month graded project based on designing a full range of MMS solutions for
a specific building type.
