The government encourages the usage ofiBS thru an organization called Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB). The advantage of using IBS are (a) reducing rectification works (time factor) and lowering the total coast of construction, (b) less material wasting, (c) permitting hybrid applications, adaptable to standardization and Modular Coordination. (MC) and (d) reduce number of labour during prefabrication. There are several types of IBS available but this report specifically discuss on characteristic and advantage of system formwork. Formwork start to evolve from it conventional form that is from timber to steel, aluminum, plastic, PVC and glass fiber. Data collected via email, journal study, feedbacks from forum joined. The comparison between timber formwork with other system formwork has been tabulated in Table 5.3. These include company such as TAC System Formwork Sdn Bhd, Fuvi Form Sdn Bhd, Plastech Industrial Systems Sdn Bhd, Intellectual Builders Sdn Bhd, and PLAS Tech Sdn. Bhd. The general improvement of system formwork in comparison with the conventional formwork are (a) strength: to carry the concrete and working load, (b) lightness without strength reduction (c) Durability without prohibitive coasts: maximum usage of materials, (d) good and accurate finish straight from the formwork: reduce the costly labour element of making good and patching, (e) erection and dismantling times, and (f) ability to employ unskilled or semi-skilled labour. With all tbe improvement been made to the formwork, system formwork had been proven to be the ideal solution of time and cost reduction in construction especially to high rise building with repetitive design.
