Industrialised Building Systems and BIM Solution Seminar @ Kuala Lumpur

Industrialised Building Systems (IBS) solution for contractors have been used in Malaysia for almost half a century.  Early projects planned for Malaysia were largely affordable housing with a focus on function over form and first apartment blocks using pre-cast walls had been built in Kuala Lumpur’s city centre.  In the 1990s, new technology and approaches to IBS played an important role to South East Asia’s construction.  Big projects like Putrajaya ad Cyberjaya were heavily reliant on IBS, IBS steel beams and floor decking were used in the construction of the Petronas Twin Towers. Moreover, KL’s Sentral Station, LRT system and KL’s new international airport are all using prefabricated components in their construction.

For those construction companies which had adopted IBS, the main drivers are a) achievement of high quality, b) gaining speed of construction, c) minimizing on site duration, d) addressing skill shortage and ultimately meeting the client’s demand. The construction industry has started to embrace IBS as a method of attaining better construction quality and productivity, reducing risks related to occupational safety and health, alleviating issues for skilled workers and dependency on manual foreign labour, and achieving the ultimate goal of reducing the overall cost of construction and 50% of construction time.

While Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) is championing IBS, they are promoting modularisation and standardisation in building processes; recognizing the importance of computerisation and robots as well as enhancing the education and training for skilled worker in IBS knowledge.   In order to stay competitive in business, it is time to review organizational strategy for longer term.  By adopting the construction industrialisation and use the prefabrication of components in building construction will have great impact on winning more projects in a cost efficient manner. 

Trimble is collaborating with myBIM Centre to co-host a seminar with special speaker from Finnmap Latvia who has more than 14 years of experiences in structural engineering.   Finnmap Latvia focuses on new design technologies and optimal solution for construction and many big projects have been completed like Bismayah New City Projects in Iraq and Alvsjo Hotel in Sweden etc.   Mr. Jevgenijs Kolupajevs, Managing Director of Finnmap, will share some insights on Benefits and Affordability of IBS, IBS workflow and precast solution for automation etc.  He will also share cases from Ukrainian market of industrial housing construction involving the important stages of pre-project preparation and design.  The topics of market analysis, project team core creation, the setting of the correct technical tasks for designs are revealed.    And there will be examples of general planning and architecture of dense industrial construction.  We have also invited local well-known expert like Mr. Saiful Adli Abdul karim from NS Prefab Consultancy who is also a trainer to share his extensive experiences on precast concrete. 

Other topics share by Trimble experts are covering BIM design for automated production as well as how an integrated BIM workflow for Structural analysis and design will help companies in achieving accuracy and efficiency in construction projects.  As the seats are limited, we are opening up 2 seats per company.  Please register early to avoid disappointment. 

Who should attend:

CXO, Real Estate Developer, General Contractor, Precaster, Structural Consultants, Formwork supplier, Researchers and Industry professionals etc.

Why you should attend:

  • Gain insight from foreign experts on how IBS is feasible in an efficient and affordable manner

  • Learn the importance of Building information modelling (BIM) and how BIM-based processes help to achieve Predictability, Project KPI and Cost savings

  • Opportunities for active discussion between participants in an open setting and networking
