Industrialized Building System (IBS)
Forest city building industrialization of the most
- A modern industrial prefabrication plant has been completed
- A factory design annual output of 260,000 m³ concrete, equivalent to 100 million square meters of building area required components. Has achieved the world’s first monomer plant production capacity
- A pre-built plant for the integrated factory, the main products include various types of structures, non-structural building components, prefabricated rate of more than 75%
Industrialized Building System, or IBS, refers to the new production mode, where construction parts are manufactured in a modernized factory, then delivered to the construction site to be assembled.
Compared to the conventional construction methods, IBS standardizes the design process, while digitizing, automating and modernizing the processes of construction and building parts production. This improves the products’ quality while making the best use of resources, presenting a more efficient, safer and cleaner alternative to the conventional method. Not only is this a more environmentally-friendly option, it would also provide training and employment opportunities in the evolving construction industry, promoting productivity and economic development in the region.
Through continual exploration and innovation, China’s IBS has improved by leaps and bounds. At the same time, China’s government has been actively promoting IBS as it presents the potential to solve the issues of urbanization, employment, resources, environmental protection, improving production and efficiency.
To advance the construction industry and realize the sustainable development of its economy, Malaysia’s government is also actively promoting the use of IBS. Through the eco-system approach, the Malaysian Investment Development Authority has begun upgrading the entire production chain to elevate the overall usage of IBS, starting with material design, construction and supply chain. As of 2014, almost 1,700 buildings, mostly government ones, had used IBS in Malaysia.
Responding to the nation’s call for promoting a green construction industry, Forest City made the full use of its technological resources to build an IBS base spanning 417 acres. The base will become one of the top in Asia, or even the world, integrating the entire industry chain into a modern production base of construction products. It will fuse construction design, precast concrete production, transportation, processing of accessories, assembly construction, research and development. This aligns with Malaysia’s strategy of becoming a developed country through automation and modernization. Currently, Phase 1 precast concrete factory has commenced production. This factory is designed to produce 260,000 cubic meters of concrete, equivalent to the required parts of a 1 million square meters of built area, making it the biggest in Asia. After visiting Forest City IBS Base, Malaysia’s International Trade and Industry Minister praised it for embracing an environmentally-friendly, efficient and safe construction concept.
Forest City IBS Base has proceeded to Phase 2 construction in 2017, which will add two factories of similar production capacity as that of Phase 1. When completed, the extra capacity will propel Forest City IBS Base to be the world’s biggest. Succeeding factories will similarly be in strategic partnerships with top-notch companies in the sector to ensure Forest City’s leadership in the industry on a global level.
