This dedicated profile will be showcased in the newly expanded Hall 6.

INDUSTRIALISED BUILDING SYSTEM (IBS)

Building smarter, leaner and cleaner is the buzzword as an Industrialised Building System or IBS is gaining momentum in the Malaysian construction sector. IBS offers speed and efficiency across all areas of the construction process including sustainability and structural integrity.

IBS is simply a method of pre-fabricated construction or also known as off-site construction, where various components are manufactured on-site or off-site. It offers a host of benefits and solutions that are fast and reliable especially as compared to conventional construction methods.

The Malaysian government has also called for a compulsory application of IBS into various construction projects taking place.

In view of this, ARCHIDEX 2018 features a dedicated section on the various components of IBS itself so that you can have a thorough understanding. Various solutions, technologies, applications, innovations, software programmes and equipment including tools and machineries, will be featured in Hall 6.
