In embracing globalisation, it is necessary for all industries, including the AEC/FM industry, to be equipped with relevant technology.One such technology available for the sector is the industrialised building system (IBS).Since 1998, Construction lndustry Development Board (CIDB) in Malaysia has been actively promoting the use of IBS in the Malaysian construction industry by deploying large funds for research. developing standards in addition to implementing various training and promotional programmes.Previous studies have shown that using IBS can enhanced the management of project quality, thus reducing rectification work and lowering the total cost of construction.However, the trend of IBS usage in Malaysian construction industry is still far below expectation. Disintegration among stakeholders during the design stage has been identified as one major barrier for implementing IBS. As such, this paper explores the potential solutions to reduce disintegration.The research presented uses focus groups to obtain qualitative data. It was found that increased collaboration and team integration, such as team accountability, structural organisation and operation in terms of work processes and environment will enhance IBS implementation in the Malaysian construction industry.
