First Singapore Construction Productivity Week aims at entrenching productivity culture

Friday, April 29, 2011

I had just completed the participation of Singapore's First Construction Productivity Week. A fruitful learning and participating process of 2days' Live BIM competition in BCA Academy, 2days conference in Singapore Expo and half a days' site visit to The Interlace by OMA, constructing under Woh Hup and a tunnel construction project by Sato Kogyo.

Image featuring my facade design done through adaptive component and curtain wall panel pattern based families in Autodesk Revit architecture. My design rational: There are higher light intensity at top portion, to cut down solar heat, we introduce with more "solid" area, to block the solar radiation. However, to harvest the solar energy, photovoltaics cells can be applied to capture solar radiation while reducing light penetration in contrast with lower facade portion with bigger openings allowing more light penetration into internal area."

Mutual recognition on degrees between Malaysia and China

Saturday, April 23, 2011

This is very significant to me. Hopefully, Tongji University can be recognised in Malaysia and Singapore.
"BEIJING: Malaysia and China are to sign a Mutual Recognition Agreement on higher education that will become a catalyst in increasing student exchange between the two countries, said Malaysian Ambassador to China Datuk Iskandar Sarudin.
He added that ministry officers of both countries had recently discussed the proposal, which was expected to be finalised soon.
"Both countries had agreed to the proposed matter during Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's visit to China in 2009 and the Chinese premier Hu Jintao's visit to Malaysia later," he told reporters here Sunday night.
He added that issues related the proposal had been ironed out and the agreement was just waiting to be signed." to find out more...
