Optimisation of sheltered walkways performance to mitigate wind-driven rain in Singapore

Abstract: Sheltered walkways are common urban features in Singapore as pedestrians utilise them as pathways to public transportation locations in Singapore. In a tropical environment like Singapore, with high solar intensity and frequent and heavy rains, the walkways provide essential benefits in reducing users’ thermal discomfort and wetness. Of particular concern in the design ofContinue reading “Optimisation of sheltered walkways performance to mitigate wind-driven rain in Singapore”

Development of a solution to optimise the process for consolidating asset information into asset information requirements (AIR) template

Abstract: The maintenance and operations of building to ensure suitable building performance require consolidation of complete and accurate building asset information. The consolidation of building asset information is done in the asset information requirement (AIR) template. The AIR template is designed according to the building owner’s requirements. The risk of consolidating inaccurate asset information intoContinue reading “Development of a solution to optimise the process for consolidating asset information into asset information requirements (AIR) template”

The use of dynamo to automate the process needed to prepare building information modelling (BIM) models for facility management and operations

Abstract: Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a process that allows multiple project stakeholders to collaborate from the planning and design stage to the construction of the building within a 3D model. In turn, the information can then be extended to be used for facility operations and management. However, the effective operational benefits inherent in BIMContinue reading “The use of dynamo to automate the process needed to prepare building information modelling (BIM) models for facility management and operations”
