Foo Chee Hung, et. al., conduct a study on Industrialised Building System (IBS) adoption in Malaysia. In 2013, the level of IBS adoption was 15.3%; with the adoption level of 61% and 14% for both government and private projects, respectively. The study points out that most targets set in the IBS Roadmap (2011 – 2015) were achieved, such as (i) to sustain the existing IBS score of 70% through to 2015 for government building projects; and (ii) to assist the private sector to attain an average IBS score of 50% by 2012. However, the number of foreign workers did not reduce as it was expected. The buy-in from the private sector is, hence, of necessary if the country’s construction industry is to move towards overall industrialisation.
