Summary of SCEM Programme

The façade together with the rest of the building envelope and roof contribute most to the solar heat gain of a building. Energy managers should be well-equipped with knowledge and technical skills to minimise these loads. These skills and ideas will be highlighted and taught at our Singapore Certified Energy Manager (SCEM) programme. Possession of a good knowledge of lighting products, systems, design & methods of integrating supplementary daylight will help energy managers to save on lighting and thermal loads.

Objectives of SCEM Course

Participants will be equipped with a better understanding of:

  1. Develop a ‘single skin’ concept for façade design to satisfy different issues arising from various types of curtain walls and their components
  2. Evaluate inputs of Façade specialists and manage critical events during planning & installation
  3. Define and calculate the ETTV and RETV of Wall, Roof and Fenestration of a building
  4. Introduce Daylighting design via physical and computer simulations to meet requirements of Singapore Standards, Green Mark & LEED
  5. Survey the existing lighting of a building with the use of a pre-designed template
  6. Analyse the current lighting components and devise possible changes & retrofits with state-of-the-art lighting products for greater energy-efficiency
  7. Evaluate the most appropriate new or retrofit solution based on initial cost as well as life-cycle economics
  8. Integrate the above management practice into the business practice of clients and their own organisations
