Production rates have been an ambiguous data since the early era of construction. As there are many uncontrollable factors that affect the values of production rates, mathematical solution could not be fully applied in order to obtain the accurate values of the production rates. However, production rates can be categorized as verbal data, which could be obtained from experts' and practitioners' opinions. The objective of the study is to obtain, compile and develop reliable production rates database for civil & structural construction works. The small amount of studies devoted to this topic and the absence of formal database on Malaysian Civil & Structural construction production rates is one of the main reasons that motivate the study. Since the study involves collection of verbal data on people's opinion, Survey Research Methodology has been chosen to be the main methods used in the study. Questionnaires and interviews formats are some of the tools used in order to gather the information needed from various respondents. The information was then analyzed by using descriptive analysis method. The survey produced range of production rates for each activity. The results were then compared to some of the previous study's results which were conducted in Europe. No specific conclusion can be made from the comparison (due to different geological and social factors in Malaysia other countries).As the study is one of the pioneering studies to be conducted in Malaysia, the result of the study may not be universally accepted for construction use. However, it can provide as an indication of the values of production rates data for Malaysian construction industry
