In Singapore’s building projects, the Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) services are usually installed in the last stage of building construction works. Thus, MEP installation faces tremendous pressure to complete the job within a very tight timeframe. To overcome such challenge, prior to installation and connections on-site, MEP services can actually be prefabricated and integrated in modules off-site.
In developed economies such as Japan, Korea, United Kingdom, and fast-developing Middle East region, many building projects have already adopted prefabricated modular MEP system and have achieved significant benefits in project delivery – reduced downtime and manpower needed on-site; improved quality of MEP works; and created a safer and more conducive environment for MEP trade workers.
The programme will be conducted through interactive discussions on case studies, facilitated by experienced local and overseas industry professionals. At the end of the programme, participants will be able to understand the prefabricated modular MEP system’s design considerations, collaboration framework, fabrication of prefab MEP modules, coordination on site, benefits of the system, and how to implement the system effectively.
