Improvising Industrialised Building System Through The Adoption Of Building Information Modeling


The implementation of Industrialised Building System (IBS) is highly challenged with fragmentation problems in traditional construction process. The adoption of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in integrated practice is distinguished as an alternative solution that could minimize the problem associated with fragmentation in construction. This research study the impacts of fragmentation issue in IBS projects and assess the awareness and current usage of IBS towards BIM. The study was carried out through the interview session and distribution of questionnaires to contractors listed under the G7, G6 and G5 within Penang region. The main conclusion drawn from the study are that the high rate of fragmentation issue in Malaysian construction industry has resulted in poor quality and low productivity of IBS construction projects and the adoption rate of BIM is still very low in the construction industry due to unawareness of potential benefit of BIM application in construction projects. Hence, these potential factors have been identified which could encourage the acceptance of BIM in integrated practice in order to minimize the fragmentation issue in IBS projects.
