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 lasting transformation to occur. Therefore, new concept has to be considered for this new era in delivering project. Enhancement the speed of the construction process flow is the vital to build a sustainable local or foreign construction industry that is poised to compete with the global players. CIDB (2007) have stated the need of innovative through research and development to be adopted in new construction methods as their strategic thrust to improve the delivering method. Simultaneously with the requirements and specification will drive for rapid construction. Survey was done to get the overview among civil engineers, project managers, project planners, quality system managers, quantity surveyor and construction researchers. The construction players found the problems faced by construction industry related to conventional construction method are because of its nature, management process, site production efficiency and resource related. Because of these problem faced by conventional construction, rapid construction concept should be practiced as a modernizing construction in the industry and provides a significant opportunity to reduce the congestion associated with the construction phase.
