Event synopsis:

Payment disputes in the construction industry have become a common problem in Malaysia and in most countries, especially 
in developing countries. About 50% of Malaysia construction projects experience Under Payment, Late Payment and/or Non-
Payment issues which causes complication to the projects to the extent that some of the projects are abandoned wherein 
innocent third-party purchasers become victims of delayed and abandoned projects. 
 
One of the main elements for the complication is the client’s inadequate finance or main contractor’s poor cash flows for the 
project.  The  amount  of  money  involved  in  construction  industry  is  enormous  and  when  payments  from  the  clients  are 
delayed, most of the contractors/sub-contractor would not be able to bear the heavy day to day construction expenses by 
themselves  which  includes  the  cost  of  material,  labour  and  other  necessary  day  to  day  expenses.  The  issue  of  payment 
dispute would eventually result in time over-run, cost over-run and total abandonment of the project. 
 
Therefore, the construction payment dispute requires to be dealt with at worst, a cheaper, quicker, simpler, legal binding and 
enforceable  resolution  enabled  by  an  adjudication  proceeding,  which  is  what  The  Construction  Industry  Payment  and 
Adjudication Act (CIPAA) has specially drafted to resolve the issues with provisions such as PROHIBITION of Conditional 
Payment, to STREAMLINE payment procedures and provide REMEDIES for the recovery of payment. 
 
The Construction Industry Payment and Adjudication Act (CIPAA) 2012 has come into operation with effect since 15 April 
2014.  The talk will cover the definition and key features of CIPAA, construction culture and payment risks, as well as the 
adjudication process under CIPAA.  In addition, identification of construction payment problems, their impact and resolution 
and how to conduct payment recovery through CIPAA proceeding will also be discussed during the talk. 

In this day and age, it is increasingly common to find coastlines in Malaysia to be significantly affected by the higher undulation and tide from the sea, which are the resultant repercussions from climate change and the undeterred global warming. The elevation of the undulation and tide level from the sea will undoubtedly leave substancial impact on the stability, effectiveness, and designs of the coastal structure. Hence, it is imperative for engineers to comprehend the scale of the soaring sea level and the ballooning pressures which the structures will be exposed to as a means to make sure that the coastal structures are desgined to a degree of satisfaction and could function competently throughout their structural lifespan.

This course is intended for any professional engineers who are invoived in the design, management, and operation of coastal protection structures. The framework of this course is structured in accordance with the design standards and manual from the Department of Irrigation and Drainage Malaysia, which is a government agency accountable for the supervision of the coastal erosion protection structures in Malaysia. One of the outcome of this course is the comprehension of the basic concept of coastal engineering design and how it can be implemented.
