The future of Singaporean construction will be progressive, productive, and professional. New trends in construction technology and sustainability will make construction management more demanding and complex.

Curated by SCAL, the CPAS Speaker Series brings together some of the leading voices and minds in the industry today to discuss key ideas, issues, challenges, and solutions faced by contractors today - from resolving problems, technicial proficiency, and promoting safety to engaging stakeholders, adopting new technologies, and mitigating contract risks.

The series will cover these important discussions by focusing on the seven competencies of the CPAS assessment framework: Project Execution, Technicial Proficiency, EHS Management, Problem Resolution, Contractual Management, People Management, and Stakeholder Engagement
