NEW SPECIALIST DIPLOMA IN CONSTRUCTION PRODUCTIVITY (SDCP) REQUIREMENT FOR A1-B1 IN CW AND L6 IN SELECTED CR AND ME
(Posted on 14/10/2014)

Introduction

The Certificate on Construction Productivity Management (CCPM) course which was introduced in May 2011 was successful to equip project and construction managers with the relevant practical knowledge to enhance work productivity levels in their own construction projects. However, over the past few years, newer game-changing technologies with the significant potential to transform the construction industry into a more innovative and productive one have also emerged. These game-changing technologies include Building Information Modelling (BIM), Virtual Design & Construction, Pre-fabricated Bathroom Unit (PBU), Pre-fabricated and Prefinished Volumetric Construction (PPVC), and Cross Laminated Timber (CLT).

The new Specialist Diploma in Construction Productivity (“SDCP”) has been introduced to include the latest emerging game-changing technologies and trends to raise the bar for the construction industry in terms of attaining higher professional competency levels to achieve greater heights in construction productivity.
