Nanta says 1,913 affordable housing projects using IBS developed as of last year

KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 8): A total of 91.5% or 1,913 affordable housing projects using the Industrialised Building System (IBS) had been developed by government-appointed developers as of last year.
Works Minister Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi said the figure showed an increase in affordable housing construction projects using the technology, compared with 84% or 1,180 in 2021.
“The government is targeting the construction of affordable houses for government projects using the IBS as many as one million units in the period of 2018 to 2028. So, based on the achievements so far, which showed an increase, it is very encouraging.
“The government is committed to maximising the use of the IBS to increase construction productivity, and reduce our industry’s dependence on foreign workers, and it is also cost-efficient,” he said.
He told reporters this after the launch of the IBS Homes and IBS Home Catalogue in conjunction with Build. Innovate. Network. Accelerate. (BUILD) 2023 on Tuesday (Aug 8).
Nanta also encouraged those who own private land to build houses using the IBS system. as it can reduce labour and save construction time.
Earlier, Nanta in his speech said to support and implement the IBS in housing initiatives, standard IBS designs had been developed and used in government projects by the Public Works Department.
“The CIDB (Construction Industry Development Board) has adapted this concept for private and commercial projects.
“The initial version focuses on affordable housing and comprises four concepts, namely MyIOS (the open system concept), DeLIGHT Homes, IHSAN Homes and D3. These designs meet the Ministry of Local Government Development’s affordable housing requirements and the National Housing Standard CIS 26:201,” he said.
The two-day event, themed “IBS Through Digital Commercialisation”, is co-hosted by the CIDB and CIDB IBS Sdn Bhd.
