Singapore's Institute of Technical Education Expands Curriculum for Integrated Digital Construction with Trimble Technologies
A Trimble technology lab will be established—The Integrated Digital Delivery Centre @ ITE, Powered by Trimble—in the new Engineering Design Hub,
ITE will incorporate Trimble's solutions into a variety of courses including Civil and Structural Engineering Design, Facility Systems Design, Interior & Exhibition Design, and Mechanical and Electrical Services Supervision. In addition to courses, access to the solutions is expected to enable secondary school students to better understand the technology with the intent to increase interest in construction industry careers.
IDD for Construction Projects
IDD allows digital information to be shared between the many stakeholders, such as designers, builders, subcontractors and facility managers, involved in a construction project so they can work together to improve the accuracy of plans, reduce waste, enhance productivity and improve overall work quality. IDD integrates the entire lifecycle process from design, fabrication, and on-site assembly right through to operations and maintenance after a building is completed. Increasing the use of IDD is a key component of the Singapore Government's Construction Industry Transformation Map (ITM). One of the goals of the ITM is to train 80,000 people in new construction technologies by 2025, up from 32,600 currently.
The official opening of the IDD Centre was hosted by Dr.
"I'm very excited to work with Trimble and I commend the company for its very strong commitment to education, research and public service," said Dr. Ang. "The IDD Centre will provide students with training opportunities in the latest digital technologies and practices in building design and construction, enhancing their skills set, competency and knowledge in BIM. It will also ready them to meet the new challenges and demands of the built environment sector."
"Trimble is proud to partner with ITE on its new IDD Centre," said Dr. Buick. "Digital technology is the future of
