Since 1998, Malaysia Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) has been actively promoting the implementation of Industrialised Building System (IBS) in our country. The most popular IBS component implemented in Malaysia construction projects is precast components (IBS Type 1). Over the years, the total number of precast manufacturing has increased from 15 in 2009 to 36 factories in the year 2011 .This research project is to study the implementation of IBS in government and private residential project, to identify the most types of IBS implemented in residential project and to identify the obstacles in implementing IBS in the construction project. The data were collected by the prepared and distributed questionnaire also interview. It were being analysed using Microsoft Excel. Even though IBS was known as a systematic and mechanised method of construction compared to the conventional method in Malaysia Construction Industry but still there are still some obstacles faced by construction industry practitioners. Hence, some recommendation was identified and provided to improve IBS implementation in Malaysia.
