MBAM to propose guide on green construction

KUALA LUMPUR: The Master Builders Association Malaysia (MBAM) will suggest that the International Federation of Asian and Western Pacific Contractors’ Association (IFAWPCA) set up a working committee to produce a guide on “Construction for a Greener World”.

MBAM president Ng Kee Leen said the association would make the suggestion at the IFAWPCA convention that started yesterday in Bangladesh, and ends on Saturday.

“This will provide IFAWPCA members an advantage to move the green construction process by working together to ensure joint success in the future,” he said in a statement.

Ng said the MBAM would also raise the importance of having the Construction Industry Payment and Adjudication Act, whereby payment to main contractors were honoured and this, in turn, would assure sub-contractors and suppliers of their payments.

He said the association would raise the issue of the Industrial Building Systems and the efforts to promote and grow its use.

Ng is leading a five-man MBAM delegation to the convention.
