This report basically discusses the preliminary research done on Industrialized Building System (IBS): Applicability of Industrialized Floor Systems in Malaysia. Industrialized Building System (IBS) may be defined as building systems in which structural components are manufactured in a factory, or on site, transported and assembled into a structure with minimal additional site works. The factors which contribute to the low of usage of IBS are lack of market share, lack of knowledge and lack of marketing. The objective of the project is to study IBS, explore IBS and to develop a chart which will summarize the applicability of different types of floor systems with respect to the span. To accomplish the objectives above, structured and well-planed methodology has been done. This is accomplished by referring to books, articles, journals and previous publications. Surveys and interviews have been conducted to know the level of application of IBS in the building construction industry in Malaysia. There are 7 types of precast floor systems currently available in Malaysia which are Hollow Core Slabs, Prestressed Solid Planks, M-Beam Floors, Double Tee Slabs, Composite Planks, Beam and Block Floors and Bubble Floors. Based on the data retrieved, 5 of these floor systems have been applied in Malaysia's construction industry. The floor systems that has never been applied are Beam and Block Floors and Bubble Floors. An applicability chart of floor system with regard to span was produced as the outcome of this study.
