Time: 12PM – 1PM
Programme: 30 Minutes Sharing + 30 Minutes Q&A

The unprecedented deadly COVID-19 outbreak that spreads like wildfire globally has impacted Spore society and economy rapidly and adversely. Architecture practices are not spared from sudden onslaughts of economic downturn and consequential disruptions due to lockdowns, suspension of projects, stoppage of construction works, cash flow woes, safe distancing
ruling etc. As a result, architects are facing new and unprecedented contractual, legal and operational challenges in their practices and projects due to stop work order, shortage of manpower, supply chain materials delay, delay in completion, payment delay, extension of time claim, variation claim, working from home etc.

As part of SIA’s continuous efforts to stand together with its members to weather through this trying time, SIA is organising a series of short 30-minute webinars focusing on various current, topical and critical issues confronting SIA members and members’ firms.

In this first session, SIA President Ar. Seah Chee Huang will be introducing to our members the “SIA United” movement and the upcoming sessions that the institute has planned. SIA President will also be sharing the activities and efforts of the institute and the council. The session also aims to understand the members’ woes amid this tough time and allow the institute to better help our members.
