Dear PAM Member,

Greetings from Pertubuhan Akitek Malaysia (PAM).

With the Movement Control Order (“MCO”) and its extensions by our Government recently to tackle the Coronavirus or Covid-19 pandemic, life must go on under such difficult and uncertain times. Players and personnel in the construction industry must continue to developed/improved and adapt through acquiring commercial and contractual knowledge and skills, including experiential learning.

This specifically targeted training programme combines construction contract and technical knowledge with practical experience and skills with work-related discussions, including the Trainer sharing his experience through three past economic downturns/recession. This impending economic downturn/recession is likely to be the most severe, both locally and globally.

Under such unfortunate circumstances, PAM through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Committee & RISM in collaboration with BK Entrusty have decided to reorganise this series of training seminar via webinar due to the movement control restriction. There are fifteen (15) comprehensive training sessions in this programme, covering a comprehensive contract administration/management topics, including related case law updates with Q&A discussion relating each topic presented, after each session, which is between 2 – 3 hours session. This series is a continuation of the 15 sessions, launched in February 2020, of which only the first 2 sessions were conducted face-to-face at PAM Centre, before MCO commenced. Consequently, the first 2 sessions are repeated at the end of the remaining 13 sessions.

Each session is stand-alone, based on BK Entrusty construction contract and management articles published in MBAM Journal since 2002 to date and updated to incorporate primarily Malaysian standard forms of contract, in particular PAM 2006/2018 and JKR/PWD contracts.

These sessions will be different compared to the previous similar sessions conducted under MBAM and PAM as the emphasis will be on MCO and difficult uncertain times ahead.

Next session: Session 7 (15 August 2020, Saturday)
Topic: Instructions & Variations
Trainer: Sr. Ong Hock Teck
Time: 9.30 am -1.00 pm
Platform: Zoom Webinar

1.5 LAM CPD points for each session.


1) Upon registration, participants will receive a confirmation email with Zoom registration link.
2) Participants are required to access the LINK (which you will receive from the confirmation email sent by Zoom) 30 minutes before the training starts.

Moderators :

Date : 13th August 2020, Thursday
Time : 5.00pm – 6.00pm
Synopsis :
What does it mean to practice? Put in another way, how does an architect practice in the future? This forum collects a young group of architects to discuss on the possible trajectories of how future practice scenarios can unfold. From alternative business models to cross-collaborations with other disciplines, the architect no longer merely engages in “problem-solving” but is engaged at “problem-forming”. In times of economic crisis and with an uncertain future looming, new forms of adaptation will emerge that will offer a diverse spectrum of approach to design, each offering a potential future for architectural practice.
The forum title is loosely based around a book, “Future Practice: Conversations from the Edge of Architecture”, authored by Rory Hyde and published in 2012. In the book, Rory Hyde documents seventeen conversations with practitioners from the fields of architecture, policy, activism, design, education, research, history, community engagement and more, each representing an emergent role for designers to occupy.
