There is a need to take a holistic approach to reviewing the factors impacting theconstruction industry performance. Improvements need to be implemented by all parties along theentire construction flow for lasting transformation to occur. Therefore, advance construction methodshave to be considered for this new era in delivering project. Enhancement the speed of theconstruction process flow is the vital to build a sustainable local or foreign construction industry that ispoised to compete with the global players. In 2007, Construction Industry Development Board of Malaysia (CIDB) has identified one of the key failures of project delivery which is inefficient andineffective methods and practices. CIDB also have stated the need of innovative through researchand development to be adopted in new construction methods as their strategic thrust to improve thedelivering method. Simultaneously with the requirements and specification will drive for rapidconstruction . This methodology in construction sector can give a change in project delivery methodswithin the contract period. With the basic definition of enhance the speed of construction, this paper introduce four criteria of rapid construction and nine effective way to achieve it.
