Professional Activities

Member of Singapore's Eurocodes Advisory Committee which evaluated the suitability of the Eurocodes as the main Building Codes for Singapore. Member of SPRING Singapore's Technical Committee on Building Structure and Substructure, and the use of various concrete materials and high strength reinforcing steel bars in accordance with the new Eurocodes.

Consultant to various engineering companies for the analysis and design of concrete structures; high-rise condominium and office buildings, including: the 60-storey Orchard Residences and ION Orchard, Gramercy Park, Cliveden, Interlace, Boulevard Vue, etc; design and analysis of very large (approx. 1000 m x 200 m) fibre reinforced concrete floor for ship warehouse; large concrete shell for silo and dome structures; etc.

Advisor for Concrete Canoe student projects where Civil & Env Engineering students from several tertiary Institutions compete to make canoes made of floating concrete. The concrete material itself has to float on water.
