KUALA LUMPUR: Lim Seong Hai Capital Bhd's unit LSH Best Builders Sdn Bhd has entered into a collaboration with Gamuda Industrial Building System Sdn Bhd to boost construction efficiency through promoting the use of digital industrial building system (digital IBS).
"Using digital IBS, high-level digitalisation and automation are adopted from the design stage to the production stage," Lim Seong Hai said in a statement.
Design coordination is done virtually in 3D and real-time via cloud computing while the production process is all digitalised and interlinked with state-of-art robotic systems.,
Through this wide-scale digital ecosystem manufacturing, there will be less construction wastage, increased productivity, shorter construction period and reduced reliance on foreign labour, it added.
"Through this collaboration, we at LSHBB are playing our role in the digitalisation of the construction industry, where we see the potential for the adaptation of digital IBS solutions as a game changer.
"This is also one of our strategies to mitigate the risk of labour shortages in the market and to ensure the quality of work with more sustainable practices," said LSH Capital's non-executive chairman Tan Sri Lim Keng Cheng.
