Abstract

Green building has now become a flagship of sustainable development in Malaysia that takes the responsibility for balancing long-term economic, environmental and social health. High total load green house gas emissions and inefficient energy consumption are the issues that the building sector in Malaysia is struggling with. To cope with these issues, Malaysian construction industry has been urged to use more innovative construction techniques like industrialized Building System and Building Information Modeling. This paper aims at evaluating the efficiency of various types of prefabricated wall components with regard to resource consumption and environmental impact and consequently, draws an analogy between them and the conventional types.
