Due to the combination of problems and issues that arose in the current construction industry such as fragmentation, less of productivity and quality, lack of sustainability etc, the Malaysian Government proposed a new solution through industrialisation technology called lndustrialised Building System (IBS). Although IBS was introduced over 40 years ago, with well-documented benefits and strong support from the government, the pace of implementation and usage of IBS is still slow and below the government targets. Investigation by some researchers identified that one of the main barriers of IBS implementation in the Malaysian construction industry is related to poor integration and communication among stakeholders involved during the design stage.A number of reports challenged the construction industry to create a fully integrated process capable of delivering predictable results to clients through processes and team integration. Responding to the challenge, this research hopes to respond this problem and help towards the betterment of the IBS Malaysian construction industry using an integrated design team delivery approach.Therefore,this paper will review and define the concepts of team, teamwork and integration within scope of construction project.In the second part, this paper will discuss the main dimensions that describe a team that has been fully integrated, followed by discussion on how the delivery team a responsible for the design and construction of a project can be integrated to work together.
