SYNOPSIS

Water Efficiency (WE) generally underscores three main areas i.e minimise usage of potable water, reduce wastage and use of alternate source of water. Among these three areas, reduction of portable water has high impact on carbon reduction. Hence WE is set as one of criteria in MyCREST and stipulated in all the three stages of MyCREST certification.

 

OBJECTIVE

To provide the participants with some fundamental technical knowledge on WE related to MyCREST. The syllabus comprises of knowledge sharing on related regulatory requirements, fundamental design features in WE,basic principle of water management, alternative water sources understanding the calculation of carbon emission with respect to WE in MyCREST calculator , method of estimation of green cost in MyCREST WE and calculation of ROI for the project.

INTRODUCTION

 

The CIDB Act 520 (Amendment 2011) has authorised Lembaga Pembangunan Industri Pembinaan Malaysia (CIDB) to enforce and regulate the construction products as per Section 33C (1), Section 33D (1) and Section 33D (2). All construction materials/products listed in the Fourth Schedule of Act 520 (Amendment 2011) are required to obtain CIDB’s Certificate of Standards Compliance or “Perakuan Pematuhan Standard” (PPS). Ready-Mixed Concrete is already included in the Fourth Schedule.

As stated in the Fourth Schedule, ready-mixed concrete must comply with the Construction Industry Standard 21 (CIS 21) and the Malaysian Standards MS 523: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3. MS 523: Part 1 is now being replaced by MS EN 206:2016. The scope of CIS 21:2016 is for ready-mixed concrete produced by any ready-mixed concrete plants producing concrete for structural and non-structural use, including those used in casting of precast concrete products.

CREAM Certification Service (CCS) is already providing product certification for ready-mixed concrete. It was started as a pilot scheme during the development and drafting stage of CIS 21. CCS is recognized by CIDB and has successfully issued Product Certificate of Conformity to some successful ready-mixed concrete producers and concrete product pre-casters. With experience gained, CCS intends through this program to explain and highlights the requirements of the standards specified in Fourth Schedule for the better understanding by the ready-mixed concrete producers and concrete product pre-casters.

 

AIM & OBJECTIVES

 

The main objective of this program are : -

1. Understanding and appreciation of the requirements of CIS 21:2016, MS 523-2:2017, MS 523-3:2017 & MS EN 206:2016.

2. Focussing and fundamental requirements on production control, conformity control and conformity criteria to engineer, regulator, consultant, contractor, and producer.

3. For producer upon completing this program, the participants could proceed to establish the production control system manual, control procedures and to perform conformity control and to maintain them.

Greetings,

 

CIDB Malaysia and Construction Research Institute of Malaysia (CREAM) through its newly established Sustainable Construction Excellence Centre (MAMPAN) will organize a training session for MyCREST Qualified Professional (QP)

 

WHAT IS MYCREST?

 

MyCREST stands for Malaysian Carbon Reduction and Environmental Sustainability Tool, a tool that guides every stakeholder involved in the design, construction, operation & maintenance of building by adopting sustainable development practices. It also aims to quantify the actual carbon emission at every stage of the building life cycle. MyCREST aims to guide, assist, quantify and thereby reduce the built environment’s impact in terms of reduced carbon emissions and other environmental impact. It also aims to integrate socioeconomic considerations related to the built environment and urban development.

 

COURSE OBJECTIVE :

    • To expose on the general assessment structure of MyCREST
    • To impart the knowledge for correct interpretation of the pre-requisites and requirements stipulated in the MyCREST reference guides
    • To provide guidance in preparing objectively the required submittals
    • To assist in completing the scorecard and using carbon calculator
    • To share good practices in implementing MyCREST

The Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) has been encouraging private construction projects to adopt Industrialised Building System (IBS). The Prime Minister has announced in 2016 that in the near future, will be mandatory for government projects of RM10 million and above, and private sector ventures of RM50 million and above to hit an IBS score of 70. Despite a ‘purported initial heavier investment’, in the longer term and with economies of scale, it is believed that IBS will result in less wastage of materials, environmental sustainability, reduce dependence on unskilled workers in the country. Hear from industry experts, what are some of the key challenges that we need to overcome in promoting the adoption of IBS in Malaysia? What technologies are large scale players in the industry developing? How can medium and smaller sized players be part of the IBS landscape in Malaysia? Role players and participants in this event include those from Government (CIDB, MIDA) various associations, contractors and construction companies, property developers, architects and many others in the supply chain. Join us in this exclusive event.
