Executive Training Courses

23rd Run 1-DAY TRAINING COURSE

BUILDING LIFE CYCLE COST AND QUALITY MANAGEMENT
Performance Measures & Evaluation Methods

» Qualified for 7 PDUs by PE Board

COURSE BACKGROUND

Evaluation of building quality has hitherto been focussed more on measurement of ‘Initial Quality or Time Zero Quality’ rather than Quality Over Building Life’. The continual strive for higher quality and developments in the Total Quality Management paradigm has led to greater awareness of the need to adopt a life cycle approach in assessing building quality, reliability and costs when considering investments in new and existing buildings.

Building quality over time will depend on the performance of building systems and components with the aim to contain cost-in-use within the limits predicted at design and planning.  A building’s ‘Global Life’ is influenced by variables such as changing user needs and natural ageing of materials and components, the former may bring on the end of building ‘Functional Life’ and ‘Economic Life’ before the end of its ‘Physical Life’. The temporal horizons for projecting and planning building investments should thus be factored when defining a building’s useful life; this will involve procedures and tools to measure and evaluate building quality and costs over its life cycle.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

The course will provide knowledge on Building Life Cycle Quality and Cost Parameters and Tools to measure and evaluate these parameters and will cover:

  • The Concept of Building Performance
  • Definitions of Building Quality Performance Parameters
  • Building Life Cycle Design Management

COURSE LEADERS

Dr Quah Lee Kiang FRICS

Dr Quah is the Director of the Real Estate & Construction Centre and the Real Estate & Construction Academy in Singapore. She has extensive regional and international experience in Project and Facilities Management & Maintenance research, advice and academia.

Dr Quah led the EU funded project BE4213 Condition Assessment and Maintenance Strategies for Buildings and Building Components, which among other things, sought to develop an objective building condition assessment system. This project formed part of ongoing research over the last 20 years which culminated in Dutch Standard NEN 2767 on Condition Assessment of Buildings, believed to be a ‘world first’.

Dr Quah’s professional and research affiliations include being Coordinator of the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction (CIB) Working Commission 70 on Facilities Management and Maintenance for a decade and past President of the Chartered Institute of Building Singapore Centre.  She was also a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Asia Board, Singapore Board and Asia Pacific Sustainability Board.

Dr Quah was conferred an Honorary Fellow by Oxford Brookes University for her work in real estate and construction education and the unusual impact her career has had on this particular academic field in Asia.
