Production rates have been an ambiguous data since the early era of construction. 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 investigate the method of determining
construction period and production rates practiced in the industry, to collect information and
data on external work's production rates from Malaysia's construction industry and to
compile and analyze the data obtained. 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. As the study is one
of the pioneering studies to be conducted in Malaysia, the result of the study may not be
generally accepted for construction use. However, it can provide as an indication of the
values of production rates data for Malaysian construction industry
