Assessment

Construction Assessment Centre (CASC) is a unit under Centre for Quality Assurance and Certification (CQAC) mainly focuses on managing assessment program for both Quality Assessment System in Construction (QLASSIC) and Safety and Health Assessment System in Construction (SHASSIC) also for MyCREST and Sustainable INFRASTAR which are programs owned by the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB).
 
QLASSIC    

QLASSIC

 
An independent assessment tool to measure and evaluate the workmanship quality of a building construction work based on Construction Industry Building (CIS 7: 2014 Quality Assessment System for Building Construction Works). It enables quality of workmanship in that project to be objectively measured through a scoring system. 
 
National Housing Policy (2018-2025) under Focus No.2 which is to emphasize QLASSIC Certification for all new public and private housing projects.

Sustainable INFRASTAR    

Sustainable INFRASTAR

Sustainable INFRASTAR stand for Sustainable Infrastructure Rating Tool where it applies an objective and evidence-based rating system that assesses the following conditions: land use planning and management, resource management, energy and water management, biodiversity and other ecosystem services, social and cultural protection and stakeholder coordination.
 
 
Objectives
  • To create a continuous awareness on the importance of sustainability throughout the pre-commissioning stage of infrastructure projects.
  • To prioritise significant environment and social attributes for sustainable infrastructure as early as the conceptual stage. 
  • To convey an improved performance related to environmental and social through project design and construction.
  • To recognise and reward efforts made by projects towards achieving an exceptional level of sustainable infrastructure. 
  • To ensure the implementation of environmental and social best practices are in accordance with the standards adopted locally and globally.
  • To measure the level of sustainability of infrastructure projects. 
 

Which Projects Are Applicable?

Sustainable INFRASTAR can be applied to most type of infrastructure projects (except the building portion) including the following:
 
  • Toll Expressway 
  • Federal Road
  • State Road
  • Municipal Road
  • Tunnel Highway
  • Bridge
 
  • Heavy Rail (Commuter Rail)

MyCREST    

MyCREST

MyCREST, or the Malaysian Carbon Reduction and Environmental Sustainability Tool, aims to guide, assist, quantify, hence reduce, the built environment’s impact in terms of reduced carbon emissions and environmental impact, while considering a more holistic life cycle view of the built environment. It also aims to integrate socio-economic considerations relating to the built environment and urban development.
 
MyCREST Tools
MyCrest essentially combine three basic tools to construct a “scoring plan” which is then used to assess a building for certification. Each tool is the basis of rating for each phase of the project. MyCREST awards different star rating to the different phases of a project and awards an overall star rating. In this way, all three phases of the project namely the Design, Construction and Operation & Maintenance are being assessed. The tools are:
  • MyCREST Scorecard
  • MyCREST Carbon Calculator
  • MyCREST Reference Guideline
 
MyCREST Aims
  • To integrate carbon assessment criteria and reduction strategies into the matrix of sustainability resulting in a combined sustainable assessment rating system for the built environment
  • To provide a quantifiable carbon assessment within a holistic sustainable rating system by integrating and extending the present criteria into life-cycle-linked performances and parameters
  • To extend the present green building assessment into life cycle impacts and its quantification
  • To combine both carbon emission and sustainable performance factors into a combined criterion linked to the design, construction, commissioning, and operations of buildings
  • To be in line with the aims of Low Carbon City Framework (LCCF) by Ministry of Energy, Green Technology, and Water (KeTTHA) 
 
MyCREST Objectives
  • To quantify the environmental impacts of the built environment in both carbon reduction and sustainable impact terms
  • To ensure the best environmental practice according to global and local standards and targets
  • To maintain and improve a database of impacts and best practice case studies to reduce carbon emissions in design and life cycle impacts
  • To raise awareness of the life cycle impacts of the built environment and its components
  • To balance robustness with ‘durability’ and practicality and ease of use
  • To produce a tool flexible enough to be used by all stakeholders, consultants and contractors and for all building types and scenarios
  • To balance long and short-term targets
  • To balance environmental and 'human' socioeconomic issues
