There is a need to take a holistic approach to reviewing the factors impacting the construction industry performance. Improvements need to be implemented by all parties along the entire construction flow for lastingtransformation to occur. Therefore, advance construction methods have to be considered for this new era indelivering project. Enhancement the speed of the construction process flow is the vital to build a sustainablelocal or foreign construction industry that is poised to compete with the global players. In 2007, ConstructionIndustry Development Board of Malaysia (CIDB) has identified one of the key failures of project deliverywhich is inefficient and ineffective methods and practices. CIDB also have stated the need of innovative throughresearch and 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 rapid construction. Inthis paper, survey was done among the construction players to get an overview of rapid construction to beimplementing in Malaysia. As a result, 100% respondent agreed that this method is an innovative way for modernizing construction in Malaysia, 94% of respondent think that rapid construction can reduce overall project time, 65% agreed that this method can increased quality of work and majority decline on term of cost.So, it is very significant to implement rapid construction in Malaysia as view by construction players.
