The Housing and Local Government Ministry (KPKT) wants all affordable housing projects under KPKT to be built using the Industrialised Building System (IBS) by 2024, said Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin.
She said the 100,000 affordable houses to be built this year under KPKT’s plan are of a combination of conventional and IBS methods, of which IBS adoption is about 30-40% now.
“As we progress, by the third or fourth year we should be able to do 50-60% and by the fifth year onwards (2024) we should be able to go 100% on IBS for the affordable homes under the national affordable homes project,” she told a press conference after opening MGB Bhd’s IBS precast concrete plant last Saturday.
