Since the 1960s, Malaysia has used the Industrialized Building System (IBS), which is not a new concept. Even now, though, this construction technique is not very popular.

IBS is the future and, according to many in the industry, is the way to go in the building sector. The future, however, has been a reality at Gamuda Bhd from the day we established our first digital IBS plant in Sepang and our second one in Banting, respectively, seven years ago, according to Lim Hui Yan, executive director of Gamuda Engineering.

It made an effort to provide cutting-edge digital IBS solutions by utilising robotic constructions and cloud-based digital design tools.

The goods of digital IBS will no longer be constrained by rigid design and won’t need a minimum order to reach economies of scale thanks to robotic building technologies.

“Back in the day, the initial cost of moulding was high; as a result, a minimum order, which may be thousands of pieces, was required to realise economies of scale. How many developers are constructing thousands of identical homes in Malaysia?

“You won’t have the economies of scale and, as a result, you won’t get the savings in construction costs from IBS, more specifically the sustainable advantages of an IBS solution,” says Lim. “When you don’t have the [minimum order] quantity because you want a new design for every phase.”
