WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR USING IBS?
  1. Higher quality products with minimum wastages due to factory-controlled prefabrication environment;
  2. Elimination the usage of timber formwork and great reduction of props through the usage of prefabricated elements or formwork system for site casting;
  3. Faster completion due to the introduction of prefabricated components replacing in-situ construction;
  4. Sturdy and sage work platforms provided by the prefabricated elements;
  5. Minimum labour usage as bricklaying and plastering work is no longer used;
  6. Less cost in overall construction budget due to all of the above.
