Civil Defence Shelter Seminar 2017 - Design, Construction and Commissioning of Household and Storey Shelters

Event code: 79099


INTRODUCTION
Under the ambit of Total Defence, the Civil Defence (CD) Shelter Programme is part of government’s plan to build up Civil Defence preparedness in Singapore. To meet the changing needs and developments in the built environment sector, the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) and Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) have been working closely to continuously review the technical requirements of the CD shelters.


OBJECTIVE
This seminar will update industry practitioners on revisions to the household shelter technical requirements. To support the continuous drive for better construction productivity, participants will also be updated on the new initiative on precast staircase storey shelters, especially for residential projects using Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction (PPVC) concept.


CONTENTS

1. COMMON SHELTER WAIVER APPLICATIONS
MAJ Andy Tan, Senior Staff Officer (Shelter Development), SCDF
The introduction of permissible variations to household shelters and 2015 edition of storey shelters technical requirements resulted in about 60% reduction in the number of shelter waiver applications over the last 3 years. However, there is scope to reduce waiver application further. This presentation will address common waiver issues, intent of various clauses of non-compliant shelter technical requirements, and rationale to waiver decisions.

2. REVISIONS TO TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS FOR HOUSEHOLD SHELTERS
Mr Victor Lian, Principal Engineer, BCA
The current household shelter (HS) technical requirements were issued in 2012. As part of the continuing efforts from BCA and SCDF to further enhance HS design flexibility, both agencies had recently concluded the review of HS technical requirements and incorporated new initiatives. This presentation will cover the salient revisions to the technical requirements governing the planning, design and construction of HS.

3. NEW INITIATIVE - PRECAST STAIRCASE STOREY SHELTERS (SSS)
Er. Neo Seng Hai, Senior Principal Engineer, BCA
To help improve construction productivity further, BCA has developed a set of technical requirements governing the design, details and construction of precast SSS. This presentation aims to share the design concept and details of precast SSS initiative, taking into consideration the ease of its production and construction.

4. CONSTRUCTION QUALITY CONTROL - THE KEY TO COMMISSIONING APPROVAL OF HOUSEHOLD AND STAIRCASE SHELTERS
Mr Ong Teck Soon, Principal Engineer, BCA
Construction quality control in household and storey shelters is essential to achieving building it right the first time. The quality control standard must attune to changing construction method, such as PPVC. Any lapses in construction quality control would lead to abortive works, time consuming and costly rectification works, and delay in obtaining approval of shelter commissioning. This presentation aims to highlight commonly-encountered non-compliances that can be avoided, and underline good practices to adopt.

5. CLEMENT CANOPY - DESIGN OF SCISSOR STAIRCASE SHELTERS AND CONSTRUCTION CHALLENGES IN PROJECT ADOPTING PPVC
Mr Sonny Pasion Tayag, Design Manager, Dragages Singapore Pte Ltd
The adoption of PPVC for residential developments demands precise integration of PPVC modules with staircase shelters. This presentation will cover principal considerations of incorporating scissor staircase shelters in the project, connection details between shelter walls and abutting PPVC modules, and the sequence of staircase shelters construction and abutting PPVC modules. Advancement in staircase shelters construction methodology will also be presented.
