Malaysia, like any other developing country, considers the construction industry as one of the main contributors to its Gross domestic product (GDP).It is currently facing the housing shortfall crisis.Due to the combination of infamous problems associated with the construction industry, such a fragmentation, lack of productivity and quality, cost and time overrun etc, the Malaysian government proposed industrialised technology 40 years ago as a solution, more commonly referred to as Industrial Building System (IBS).However, the level of implementation of IBS is still below government target.Lack integration among IBS stakeholders during the design stage has been identified as one of the main contributory barrier.Many industry-led reports suggested that the transformation process of the traditional modus operandi toward an integrated approach is pertinent.A number of reports challenged the construction industry to create a fully integrated process capable of delivering predictable results to client through processes and the team integration.As a response to this challenges, and consistent with the needs of the construction industry to be capable of delivering predictable and quality project, therefore, this research hopes to answer this problem and help towards betterment of the IBS Malaysian construction industry using an integrated project team delivery approach. In doing so, a series of interview with multidisciplinary Malaysian IBS experts will be conducted purposely for data collection and validation process guide by the research design and methodology approach of this research. The analysis of data from interviews will be combined with information identified in the literature review in order to develop a framework for effective integrated design team delivery in Malaysian IBS project.Finally, the framework will be validated by further Malaysian IBS industrialists during a Validation Workshop. The final framework can be used as a term of reference for both Malaysian IBS practitioners and academics toward achieving integrated IBS design team practice.
