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:
Topic: Professional Practice & Ethics – Code, Ethics and Practice
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.

Today, 5th October 2020, architects around the world celebrate World Architecture Day. The theme for this year is ‘Toward a better urban future’. WAD is celebrated concurrent with UN World Habitat Day which carries a similar theme ‘Housing for All: A better Urban Future’.
The glaring keywords that are hard to miss are ‘better urban future’. From the themes, it is quite telling that architects are in the position to realise this ‘better future’. With the pandemic prompting revolutionary ways in running day to day living and working, we are hard pressed to respond to the changes. But why the importance on urban living when urbanity is the very evil that gave rise to the pandemic? The answer lies in the simple human needs to connect.
The United Nations’ World Urbanization Prospects report has advised on the importance of a well-managed urban growth to achieve sustainable development in three key areas which are economic, societal and environmental.
Covid-19 is not the first, nor will it be the last pandemic in the world. Humans are agile and highly adaptive beings. Despite being faced with several pandemics over the last decade, the numbers are showing increased human adaptability to tackle the problems compared to the biggest and worst pandemic in the early 20th century during the Spanish Flu pandemic which claimed almost 50 million lives.
In a nutshell, when designing for future development, focus on human and mother Earth need to be prioritised to reduce the impact to the environment. The pandemic helps to remind us on the fragility of our planet, but it is not all there is to it. The pandemic will not be the deciding factor.
The creation of urban centres will continue to draw people to cities as they look for vibrant cultural and social surroundings that can foster creativity, offer more opportunities and spur innovation. Designing a space for a better urban future should capitalise on the benefits of urban living such as better infrastructure, high speed connectivity and transportation linkages.
Thus, when designing for a better urban future, be mindful of that lurking virus but keep in mind the bigger picture of human needs to connect and socialise. Happy World Architecture Day!
