Future in Your Hands
The phrase ‘safe as houses’ means nothing without experts like you. A building and its surroundings are complex structures, the product of many trades. Architects, construction workers, plumbers, brokers, engineers, urban planners – they all bring their expertise together to ensure that constructions are safe for us, our friends, our family, our colleagues, and the rest of society. It is a highly interdisciplinary environment.
By joining TÜV SÜD in the area of Real Estate and Building Technology, you will become a part of that. From the drawing board to demolition, we look after buildings in every phase of their life cycle, checking and confirming safety measures and performing real estate surveys and evaluations.
Our employees provide professional support for investors, builders, planners, operators and manufacturers of plants, buildings and infrastructure facilities. We ensure safety, sustainability and energy efficiency on these projects, for example through BIM, project management services or the quality management of construction operations.
Inside the buildings, our experts test escalators, cooling and heating devices, and building fire safety both on-site and within our company-owned laboratories, making sure everything runs smoothly.
Join us with a degree in engineering, plus some background in the industry. We tend to promote employees with specialist knowledge and the necessary ability to think outside the box.
TÜV SÜD @ IBP will become an eight-storey integrated office and lab hub for 650 of our colleagues to work under one roof.
True to our core philosophies, TÜV SÜD @ IBP uses digitalisation to ensure the highest safety and sustainability in every square metre. As a leading global expert for testing, inspection and certification, our new Singapore headquarters are a live example for the digitalisation of a building life cycle, from design, to construction, to operation.
We wanted our new workplace to reduce cost factors such as energy consumption and to rework and empower project control and building management. To do that, we will create a digital twin as the basis for TÜV SÜD @ IBP and transform it into reality by using the reverse life cycle approach.
This digital twin allows us to optimise building operation and maintenance before hammering even a single nail. This tool is exemplary of our one-stop service: we can provide advice, testing, inspection, certification and management service through all stages of the building life cycle.
We wanted to help other companies through the corona pandemic by making it easier to protect their employees and help them better understand the spread of this virus.
The pandemic has made it clear how important the targeted removal of air and aerosols from enclosed spaces is for reducing the risk of infection, particularly in autumn and winter when most people stay indoors and have poorer ventilation. But the difficulty with indoor air distribution is, of course, that the situation is different in every room itself. Furthermore, the way the air spreads through the room is influenced by the people within it, and their type of exhalation like normal breathing, talking, coughing and sneezing.
So, we knew that calculating the airflow would be extremely complex, but thanks to our experts, not impossible.
To track the air breathed in and out by people in a room, we create a digital twin of the building and simulate the respiratory air by taking into account all important ventilation conditions, such as ventilation systems, windows and door openings, furniture, and the distribution of people (including their breathing).
We hope employers will use this approach to make sure their offices are well ventilated and healthy for their employees.
TÜV SÜD's innovative Lift Manager solution is an independent, predictive maintenance service for optimised lift operations and management. It leverages our lift domain and digital expertise to support lift operation and maintenance using industry monitoring sensors and an IoT platform. Our Lift Manager system can be used on lifts of any age, brand or model, including those already in service.
Drawing on our vast experience and expertise in lift operation, we carefully choose the perfect locations for our sensors on the lift car’s top without requiring any interface with the lift. The data that these sensors pick up during the lift operations are analysed in real time using our predictive model algorithms to predict and avert lift failures.
The high-accuracy predictive lift model was built based upon 80 years of lift inspection and certification experience, with more than 300,000 inspections performed every year.
Yannick Renaud, Project Engineer for Energy and Simulation, Germany
“My area of expertise is in complex building requirements. Since no two buildings are alike, our job is always detective work. We investigate how proper ventilation can contribute to better and healthier indoor air quality in large rooms and buildings, and analyse why certain pressure conditions in buildings lead to technical problems. Customers have enormous trust in and high expectations of the name `TÜV SÜD` – and rightly so; our work improves safety in buildings by optimising smoke and heat ventilation systems.”
Silvia Ugarte, Elevator Inspector, Spain
“I’m one of the youngest elevator inspectors TÜV SÜD has in Madrid. I travel to sites to check the suspension, electronics, drive system, whether safety mechanisms are in place when needed, and much more. As a young woman, convincing the (mostly male) staff I encounter to take me seriously is challenging. But I am the expert responsible for ensuring that all safety regulations are complied with. Knowing this provides me with the strength to be strict and emphasise that rules are rules, even in difficult situations. That’s how I’m leaving my mark not only on society, but within my industry and TÜV SÜD itself!”
Dr. Rolf M. Zöllner, Business Line Manager Smart Lifts, Germany
“I’m working at the business unit Lifts, Cranes and Conveyors, and let me tell you, I love what I do because it is essentially shaping our lift business proactively for the age of digitisation – coming up with strategies and projects for how to keep our business at the highest level. A project that will always stick with me is one in which the international project team with experts from Singapore, the UK and Germany created a new paradigm for predicting lift failures. This predictive maintenance model from TÜV SÜD is the first of its kind in the industry – and will be one of the game changers to digitalise lift testing, inspection and maintenance, resulting in smarter and safer lifts for the world!”
Gilbert Lau, Assistant Vice President of Lift, Crane and Conveyor Services, Singapore
“I head our lift advisory and inspection services in Singapore. A large part of my responsibility involves overseeing lift condition assessments and inspections, including investigating lift failures, where we advise building owners on how to achieve safer and better-performing lifts. Currently, together with my colleagues in the relocation project, I am working on the new TÜV SÜD ASEAN headquarters, TUV SUD @ IBP. Being able to significantly impact such an important project is certainly an honour, but what gets me out of bed every morning is the belief that TÜV SÜD, including myself, is contributing to a safer, secure and sustainable world.”
Our experts are our most valuable assets. They are the ones who turned the projects above into successes. BIM consultants, IT specialists, project engineers, and building inspectors alike do their part in bringing new buildings and technologies to life. They make sure we stay a part of progress and help shape the future.
We aim to shape the future by becoming one of the pioneers of the digital revolution through our comprehensive portfolio of safety, security and sustainability solutions. Academics, specialists, and practical-minded generalists alike will find many suitable areas of employment within TÜV SÜD.
Successful candidates usually join us with a degree in electrical, civil, mechanical or industrial engineering, architecture, real estate management or business with a focus on real estate. Depending on the role, an ardent and thorough knowledge in automation technology or building law may also be a plus. Several years of relevant work experience will also be expected.
We are passionate about technology, our careers, and contributing to a safer, more sustainable world – and our work ethic reflects that. We are looking for people who take a closer look, conducting their work thoroughly to come to informed decisions. We need people who love collaborating with our clients and colleagues, are always looking forward, and are firmly committed to our responsibilities for safety and sustainability.
