An earthquake is the motion or trembling of the ground produced by sudden displacement of rock in the Earth's crust and has the potential for causing a number of actions that may be hazardous. One of the constructions methods that may be able to take into account of earthquake effects in the design considerations is Industrialised Building System (IBS) due to its flexibility at joints and lateral stiffeners at bracing that able to absorb the vibrations. IBS is a building system in which structural components are manufactured in a factory or at site factory and then transported, assembled into a structure with minimal site wet work and erected on the site properly joined to form the final units. Single storey housing was analyzed by using Multiframe 4D software in this study. The structural modeling consist of conventional and IBS model. The analyses were carried out with and without seismic loads. The results were interpreted in order to determine the behaviour of each construction method to withstand the design loads and seismic loads.
