ICW & Ecobuild SEA is the leading exhibition and conference for construction, design and energy in the built environment, attracting 12, 073 high calibre, senior level decision makers and influencers from architects, contractors, engineers and developers, to local government and major infrastructure clients.

This year Ecobuild SEA has a comprehensive showcase of Sustainable construction products and solutions. Themed “ Driving Productivity in Construction” Hosted by the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) Malaysia and held in conjunction with International Construction Week (ICW) 2016. Ecobuild SEA featured unrivalled conferences and technical seminars involving industry experts, innovators and practitioners. It connects the entire built environment supply chain, helping them to play their part on realising the vision of cleaner, greener and more efficient buildings. It continues to be the meeting place for everyone interested in delivering a sustainable built environment and a better world for us all.

Ecobuild SEA not only does exhibitions, but talks as well. Mr. Hong Kah Wai from Bubble Deck Constructions presented on how Bubble Deck is the Future of Green Construction Technology. BubbleDeck System is a revolutionary construction method by eliminating concrete from the neutral axis of a floor slab that is structurally not performing, as a result dramatically reducing dead weight.
Incorporation of recycled plastic bubbles as void formers allows wider space between columns. Combination of this with a flat slab construction approach spanning in two directions – the slab is connected directly to insitu concrete columns without any beams – produces a wide range of cost and construction benefits. This is just one of the hundreds of examples of green technology and innovation that was presented! There is a whole world of green technology for all of us to explore.
Ecobuild SEA 2016 was a gracious opportunity for our KAGC students to be able to interact with those in the industry and learn more about green technology. Students from the Diploma in Green Building and Diploma in Green Technology Management were involved in the trip and were chaperoned by lecturers Mrs Nurul Izzati Binti Mat Akhir, Ms Asyikin Bt Suratman and Ms Jivitra Balu.

Students studying for the Diploma in Green Building are often have to face the strong critical thinking and know the disciplines of green building. This includes knowing how to cater to the lucrative market demands from the perspective of architecture and engineering. Those in Diploma in Green Technology Management also have to incorporate environmental consideration into business management. An important factor is to be able to formulate strategic solutions in addressing sustainability issues when it comes to urban planning. It is important in DGTM students to be able to understand the functions of science and technology in an organizational role.

Tasked with finding the green technology in all the companies exhibited in the conference, the students displayed excellent communication skills as they interacted with the industry professionals.  Besides exploring for different innovations and ideas, students also scoped out which industry they want to get involved in for their internship in the final year. The EcoBuild SEA experience helps our students understand the elements that goes into green planning and being an energy efficient builder.

With over 700 exhibitors showcasing their newest products and innovations, this as an extremely informative and interesting trip for the students and lecturers alike.
