Constructability of IBS blockwork systems for bungalow houses

Industrialised Building Systems in Malaysia


The Malaysian construction industry faces unique challenges in transforming construction into a modern and efficient industry by using Industrialised Building Systems (IBS). This involves prefabrication and installation of components at the construction site. Currently the most popular type of precast manufacturing in Malaysia is off-site, which is often situated at a significant distance from the construction site. Modern methods of construction (MMC) is the term used by the UK government to describe a number of innovations in house building, most of which are offsite technologies, moving work from the construction site to the factory. The current system of IBS consists of precast component systems, formwork systems, steel framing systems, prefabricated timber framing systems, block systems and innovative systems, which have started to replace the wet construction (traditional method). The research discussed in this paper highlights the benefits of block work systems in the Malaysian construction industry, which contribute to the fast tracking of projects, increase the affordability of business, and improve the quality and durability of products.
