Abstract

The Malaysian government has taken the initiative of implementing Industrialized Building System (IBS) in which components are manufactured in mass production under a controlled environment (on or off site), transported, positioned and assembled into a structure with minimal additional site works.It is hope that IBS can improve the performance of construction industry.However, the main barriers in IBS implementation is project delivery process.In order to overcome this barrier, ‘Integrated Project Delivery (IPD)’ as a project delivery system using a multi-party contract (more than two parties selected) was introduced.Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is defined as a project delivery approach that integrates people, systems, business structures and practices into a process that collaboratively harnesses the talents and insights of all project participants to optimize the results, increase value to the owner, reduce waste, and maximize efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication and construction.Although, many researchers have argue the importance of IPD in project delivery process, but the readiness of construction industries must be established. This research will use a quantitative study.This quantitative research process will involve a few phases including literature review stage, data collection stage, framework development stage, validation and recommendation stage.As the aim of this research is to obtain data based on multidisciplinary IBS stakeholders’ perspectives, respondent include project managers, resident engineers, and architects, contractors etc. are among the potential candidates. At the end of the process, this research will develops the readiness assessment model to implement IPD in IBS construction projects.
