How to Design OSD using MSMA2 (Sept 26, 2014 @ IEM PJ)

We would like to invite you to attend the seminar on On-Site Detention (OSD) to be held at the Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM), Petaling Jaya on 26 September, 2014.

As you are aware, the second edition of MSMA (MSMA2) was enforced on 1 July, 2012.

Based on our case studies for Kuala Lumpur, we found significant changes in major design parameters using MSMA2 as follows:

(1) Design storm increased by up to 126%,
(2) Design discharge using Rational Method increased by 131%,
(3) OSD storage volume increased by up to 235% and
(4) Storage volume for wet sediment basin increased by 165%.

The seminar covers the problems of applying MSMA2 in the design of OSD.

Case studies have shown that the storage (SSR) computed using MSMA2 is about 2.3 times higher than MSMA1 for Kuala Lumpur due to the approximation method used.

In this Seminar, we discuss alternative approach to the design of OSD using the Exact Swinburne’s Method which results in SSR of less than half the MSMA2 estimate.

We will show you how to do this using spreadsheet and software. We invite you to attend the seminar as follows:

Seminar Topic: Problems of Applying MSMA2 in the design of On-Site Detention (OSD)- Issues and Solutions.
Date: 26 September, 2014 (Friday) Time: 9:00 am to 5 pm.
Venue: C&S Lecture Room, Wisma IEM, Petaling Jaya
Fee: Discounted price of RM490 for early birds. Additional discount for company sending in more than 1 participant.

Benefits of our seminars:
1. Find out how you can design OSD more economically and yet complies with the requirements of MSMA2.
2. You will get free OSD design spreadsheets worth RM1,750 and free Lite version of MSMAware worth RM8,000.
3. You will gain invaluable insight on MSMA2 from an expert with nearly 3 decades of industry experience.
4. You will qualify for valuable CPD hours from BEM by attending the seminar.

Seminar on “How to Apply MSMA2 in Negeri Sembilan?” on 28 May, 2014

The seminar is jointly Organised with IEM Negeri Sembilan @ IEM NS Training Centre on 28th May 2014!

IEM NS Training Centre.
Address: No. 77-A-1, Lorong Haruan 5/3, Oakland Commerce Square, 70300 Seremban, Negeri Sembilan.
Tel: 06- 6311011, Fax: 06- 6314619
email: iemnsembilan@gmail.com
Website: http://www.iemns.org.my

This Seminar is designed specifically for engineers who do drainage design works in Negeri Sembilan.

It will reveal interesting findings from our research work concerning changes in MSMA2 that affect the design as follows (for Kuala Lumpur):

1. The design storm has increased by up to 126% for 10 out of the 14 stations in Kuala Lumpur.
2. The design discharge using the Rational Method has gone up by up to 131% for commercial and city area.
3. The peak discharge using the Time-Area Method has increased by 127%.
4. The Site Storage Requirement for OSD for a factory site has increased by 190%.
5. The volume of detention basin for a site has increased by up to 130%
6. The volume of a wet sediment basin has increased by 165%.
7. The requirement to provide rainwater harvesting according to the procedure outlined in MSMA2.

The benefits of attending the Seminar are as follows:

1. You will find out important changes and new requirements in MSMA2 that affect drainage design in Negeri Sembilan.
2. We will show you a different approach of computing OSD using MSMA2 that will reduce the storage significantly compared to the Approximate Swinburne’s Method in MSMA2.
3. We will show you a proposed system that combines both rainwater harvesting and OSD for typical houses which will optimise the total storage required.
4. You will get special tips from the expert and receive powerful tools that will make your design more cost effective.
5. You will get MSMA2 spreadsheets worth a total of RM2,380 for free!
6. You will gain 6 CPD hours by BEM while learning about MSMA2.

Workshop On "New Requirements on ESCP & Stormwater Management in the Second Edition of MSMA- Property Development in Environmentally Sensitive Areas."

We are pleased to announce the following workshop:

Workshop on "New Requirements on ESCP & Stormwater Management in the Second Edition of MSMA-Property Development in Environmentally Sensitive Areas."

Date: 18-20 November, 2013 (3 days)
Time: 8.30 AM - 6.00 PM
Venue: C & S Lecturer Room, IEM, Petaling Jaya.

Key Topics Covered:
1. Strategic Development Layout Planning and Land Conversion.
2. Geological Terrain Mapping.
3. Geotechnical and Soil Erosion Assessment.
4. Erosion Risk Mapping.
5. Erosion and Sediment Control Planning.
6. Landslide Hazard Zonation Mapping.
7. Environmental Impact Assessment.
8. Drainage and Stormwater Management.
9. Solid Waste and Wastewater Management.
10. Environmental Management Planning.
11. Early Warning System Application.

Synopsis:

Property development in environmentally sensitive areas (ESA), particularly in the highlands and hillslopes, has been mushrooming since 1980s in Malaysia.

However, Malaysia has bitter memories of the Highlands Tower landslide tragedy in 1993, and the latest landslide tragedies at Ulu Yam Perdana, Hulu Selangor and at Bukit Antarabangsa where many lives have been lost and property damaged.

Such tragedies will certainly persist and worsen unless proper planning and management of land utilization is adopted at the early stage of any proposed property development in these areas.

In these three days we will be looking at various approaches of development control in environmentally sensitive areas.

Based on the approaches adopted for development control in these areas, various challenges will be faced, such as limited usage of land due to the nature of the terrain, difficulties in construction and also the management of risks/hazards involved.

With specific approaches taken for development control, it would be beneficial to the industry in moving a step closer towards a better understanding of land development issues and its after-effects in this country, thus ensuring that a more sound and sustainable development could be carried out in future.

Key Benefits of Attending This Program:

1. Providing hands-on information on development planning and control in ESA.
2. Understanding of specific requirements so that budget allocation could be provided to secure planning approvals.
3. Equipping property investors with adequate knowledge in selection of the right piece of property for investment in ESA as well as development potential.
4. Equipping property developers with know-how techniques to manage and successfully undertake such developments.
5. Equipping other professionals (i.e. architects, planners, engineers, contractors, risk management insurers) involved in land and property development on development control practices in ESA.
6. Acquiring better planning knowledge in minimizing risks of landslides, soil erosion and flooding issues within ESA.
