Dear Ms Gwee,
RE: Proposal to implement seat occupancy detection mobile application
I am Poh Cheron, a first year student from the Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering programme at Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT). I am tasked to do a problem solution project along with two other students to develop Singapore in a manner that benefits its citizens as by our lecturer, Mr. Brad Blackstone. As current students, we do realize that many students face the problem of circling among 2 canteens, namely Canopy and iEat, in search of a vacant seat during lunch time.
Attached to this email is a detailed report which consists of a description of the current situation, the rationale behind the proposed solution, an evaluation of the benefits and a summary of all related primary and secondary research involved. If you have further queries, you may wish to contact me at 9756-3378 or my fellow colleagues Cai Ju…

Technical Report (Draft 1)

As students of Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT), we have noticed that the Canopy canteen at the Dover campus is often packed with students and staff between 12 p.m. till 2p.m. daily. Given that student’s lunch breaks are mostly an hour, it is often a struggle to enjoy a meal without the pressure of time before the next lesson begins. A survey was conducted among 27 students showed that60% of the respondents indicated that they spend approximately 5 to 10 minutes every day circling within the canteen of their choice looking for seats. These results are not inclusive of time taken to walk between crowded canteens searching for available seats as well as time taken queueing up for food. As such,it has become A-Team’s interest to develop a solution to help reduce unnecessary wastage of time.

The 3 canteens Canopy CafĂ©, iEat and the Crown Coffee at SIT Dover campus offer a total seating capacity of ____. Canopy canteen has proven to be the preferred lunch venue for students as stati…

Reader Response (Final)

In the article “3D building models help bring sustainability into construction”, Jenkins (2015) claims that Building Information Modelling (BIM) has adverse possibilities in replacing traditional 2D drawings. BIM creates a three-dimensional (3D) model of the actual building and runs computer stimulation that is capable of countering imminent errors and calculations before the construction of a building which minimizes construction defects and reduces building cost. This is supported by Sutton (as cited from Jenkins,2015) who mentioned that the innovation of BIM has brought the building industry to a new height due to the innovative approach of calculating design data before the building is physically built. This process significantly shortened the time of construction as well as reducing building materials. BIM has become an essential design tool due to the demand of more complex building and the emphasize of reducing building’s environmental impact by improving energy efficiency and …

Summary Draft 1: 3D Modelling

In the article “3D building models help bring sustainability into construction”, Jenkins (2015) claims that Building information modelling (BIM) has adverse possibilities in replacing traditional 2D drawings. BIM creates a 3D model of the actual building and runs computer stimulation that is capable of countering imminent errors and calculations before the construction of building. However, BIM is still not globally used due to the preference of traditional approaches of building construction over the use of advance technology.

Self-introduction.

Dear Professor Blackstone,

My name is Cai Junhe. I graduated from Temasek Polytechnic with a diploma in green building and sustainability. During my tertiary education, I designed an energy efficient building model which further interests me to pursue a degree in sustainable infrastructure engineering (building services) in Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT). It was not a tough decision in choosing a suitable course as it has always been my passion to promote an eco-friendly environment in Singapore.In the future, I would like to continue in this industry as an energy consultant. Hopefully, I am able to contribute to the efforts in making Singapore a more green and sustainable environment for our next generation.

Initiating a conversation to an individual or a group has always been a challenge. Due to my introverted personality, I would tend to shiver and stutter on my words which cause me to face difficulty in delivering the clarity of the message and loses my confident. which c…
