What is Industrialized Building System?

The construction industry’s importance extends beyond physical structures. The effects are on economic growth, infrastructure development, job creation, and societal well-being. Thus, industry players are accountable for ensuring sustainable and cost-efficient structures. The Industrialized Building System (IBS) has offered an opportunity for transformation. The system involves the controlled production of components in factories or on-site. Minimal on-site labor for efficient transportation and seamless installation during the construction phase.
Companies can produce different building components based on their prefabrication level:
  • Pre-cast Concrete System.
Producing pre-cast components such as beams, columns, and panels. Afterward, transport to construction sites for assembly.
  • Steel Framing System.
Fabricate steel components off-site and assemble them on-site to form the building structure. The component used in steel buildings and lightweight models
  • Prefabricated Volumetric System
Unlike individual components, the production of entire modules occurs off-site. The production is complete with walls, floors, ceilings, and interior designs. The complete units were then transported to the construction site for final assembly. The final assembly takes place at the site, aligning with the well-established technique.
Our company, Scandinavian Industrialized Building System is a Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction (PPVC). We produce modular homes in a mass production setting using patented Parametric Modularisation. Producing entire modules including foundation and balcony, we construct 90% of an apartment at the factory.
Here’s why IBS construction is the way forward:

Speed: IBS construction accelerates projects compare to traditional construction. For reasons like off-site manufacturing, concurrent processes, reduced on-site labor, and enhanced coordination. This synergy results in quicker assembly and streamlined construction, reducing project timelines.

Cost-Effective: IBS construction minimizes costs through different strategies. Such as controlled material usage and factory conditions, reduced labor expenses, and quicker project completion. This efficient approach translates to notable savings throughout the construction process.

Quality: IBS construction ensures high quality by employing standardized processes in controlled environment. The purpose of this act is to reduce human error. Stringent quality checks at various stages and precise assembly lead to consistent and superior end products.

Safety: IBS construction prioritizes safety with fewer on-site activities, minimizing workers’ exposure to hazards. Factory-controlled environments, precise manufacturing, and reduced on-site labor contribute to a safer construction process and reduced occupational risks.

Sustainability: IBS construction promotes sustainability through efficient material use, reduced waste from controlled manufacturing, and decreased transportation needs. This approach aligns with eco-friendly practices, contributing to a greener and more environmentally conscious construction industry.

In conclusion, the construction industry’s significance reaches far beyond physical structures, encompassing economic growth, infrastructure development, job creation, and societal well-being. As industry players, it is our responsibility to contribute to the sector by making structures safer, quicker, and more cost-efficient. The Industrialized Building System (IBS), particularly in Malaysia, has presented a transformative opportunity to achieve this goal.

As we continue to embrace the Industrialized Building System, we pave the way for a more efficient, environmentally conscious, and prosperous construction industry. Together, we can build a better and brighter future for all.
