The Construction industry in Malaysia is always progressively moved ahead with the full support from the Malaysian government through the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB). As report by CIDB, “there were 34,172 projects valued at RM 407 Billion for the 2006-2010 (9th Malaysia Plan) period, compared to 30,717 projects valued at RM 507 Billion for the 2011-2014 periods. Infrastructure projects such as road, major bridges, railways, ports/airports and other major civil works are avenues for major capital influx into the areas where work will be undertaken. The impact to downstream economy can be immediate at the start of the construction and can continue during the operations itself. It is for this reason that local residents get excited when new major infrastructures are established in their locality. Coupled with the promised economic and financial benefits of the construction industry, the activities themselves generate considerable waste materials at the worksites, workers’ campsites, and ancillary facilities. The aim of this research is to investigate the use of BIM as a platform and IBS construction to aid construction waste minimisation, and to develop and validate a BIM-IBS aided waste minimisation Framework in design. Reducing construction waste has been driven by economic and environmental consideration due to the cost of waste, which is about 15 times that of disposal. Thus, the construction industry has been exploring and developing effective and efficient approaches to minimise waste generation In the context of this research, construction waste minimisation (CWM) is a process for preventing, eliminating or reducing waste at its source during design.
