Event: Towards an Enhanced Thermal Comfort and Sustainable School Environment

The IBPSA-Singapore Chapter is holding a Seminar, with the title: “Towards an Enhanced Thermal Comfort and Sustainable School Environment”. 

Event Time:                             18 September, 2020 at 2.00pm – 4:30pm,

Venue:                                    Online Seminar (to be sent few days before the event date)

PEB – PDU Points:                   2 CPD Points

SGBC-GMAP CPD Points:       6 CPD Points

Brief Info:

Funded by Singapore Sustainable Blueprint (SSB) Programme, a R&D project entitled “Computer Assisted CFD Simulation to Promote Positive Energy School (PES) Project in Singapore” has been carried out by research team from IHPC and collaborators from BCA, since Dec 2017. This R&D project is well aligned with the PES campaign advocated by BCA recently.

In this seminar, Mr. Selvam VILLIAPAN from BERII of BCA, who is the key officer in charge of PES project, will be invited to give an overview of the PES Project and progress achieved so far. After that, Dr. GE Zhengwei and Dr. OOI Chin Chun from IHPC, ASTAR, who are the leading scientists for the SSB-funded project, will present their major CFD efforts and findings throughout their 3-year study. This seminar is targeted at all participants from building practitioners, policy makers, ESD consultants, architects and planners, as well as researchers and students who are interested in relevant topics.
