CIDB 1BINA.my is a global initiative of CIDB Malaysia. Aims to create a stable industry portal, 1BINA.my and developed speciﬁcally to facilitate electronic business directly (live) across borders. Among the collaborative support include business tools; knowledge sharing; links to aid and projects; as well as industry directories and community networks.
eQlassic system version 1.0 was ﬁrst developed in 2008 to present the statistical scores of each project in a single group. Users of this system are divided into two categories, namely public and CIDB admin. The industry community can see a chart on the total number of development projects that have been evaluated, the average score by year and the development category.
Through the eQlassic system, the 10 construction projects that recorded the highest score by construction category can apply for the “Benchmark Function” by entering the score to get the evaluation of their respective projects. CIDB admin users can include the total number of eQlassic scores of a project that have been manually evaluated for public viewing.
CIDB has made improvements to the old system of the eQlassic project version 1.1 by adding an assessment process, certiﬁcation printouts as well as additional statistical reports. This system of the development process is quite complicated as it involves additional statistical reporting. The system also involves additional functionality to admin users, assessment users, changes to the evaluation form ﬁlling guide in the electronic system, the accuracy of the scoring formula as well as the merging of a database from 2009 to 2011. Whatever eQlassic system version 1.1 was successfully completed in 2011.
DATABASE OF BIM CONTRACTORS AND CONSULTANTS (BIM RESOURCE NETWORK)
BIM Resource Network is one of the local reference platforms where CIDB Malaysia provides a data bank of construction industry participants who use BIM. This data bank can be accessed through the myBIM Center Portal.
The development of the BIM Resource Network was implemented in 2019 through an allocation provided by CIDB. The main goal of its implementation is to facilitate the search for consultants and contractors who have the skills and knowledge of the use of BIM by parties who need such expertise.

CIDBEC’s role in this project is to provide project management, coordination (PMC) services throughout the development of the NCIIC portal. The NCIIC portal development initiative aims to create a diverse database of information related to the construction industry for industry use, whether for policy formulation, strategic planning, investment, scientiﬁc research, industry development benchmarks and research related to the construction industry. PMC services for NCIIC portal projects were implemented from 2016 to 2017.
BIM INCENTIVE SCHEME
The BIM Incentive Scheme is a ﬁnancing program for companies that carry out construction projects using BIM in the form of BIM software offers and BIM Training programs for free. This program was introduced as one of CIDB’s initiatives to construction industry players (contractors or consultants) to promote the use of BIM in the Malaysian construction industry. The objective is to expand and strengthen the use of BIM in the construction industry.
In supporting the implementation of BIM for Government projects, from 2017 to 2019 CIDB has spent an allocation of RM2.9 million and has beneﬁted 69 companies.
To date, 69 companies have beneﬁted from the scheme. CIDBEC acts as the coordinator of the program, appointed by CIDB from 2017 to 2019.
IBS SCORE SMART CALCULATOR
- CIDBEC has created a user friendly software tool that can help program and speed up the calculation of IBS Scores. The formulas and methods used for the calculations are in accordance with the Malaysian Standard (MS1064) and IBS Center specifications. Users can check a summary of the details of the calculation report or print it themselves for documentation purposes. Operators can export and email computational data to other parties in their organization or external parties so that they can review, edit or perform verification tasks.
NBeS is a ﬁrst-in-the-world Auto Checker system for the review and approval of Building Plans at the Local Authority (PBT) approval level which involves the process of submitting and reviewing Building Plans digitally. In contrast to the conventional method that uses 2D drawing plans, 3D BIM models are used for Uniform Building By-Law (UBBL) compliance review and other related regulations.
The program which started in 2017 was conducted with 5 local authorities, namely, Putrajaya Corporation (PPj), Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ), Kangar Municipal Council (MPK), Historic Melaka City Council (MBMB) and North Kuching City Hall (DBKU). To date, the development of the system has involved 4 Purpose Groups namely Purpose Group I (Small Residential), Purpose Group III (Other Residential), Purpose Group IV (Ofﬁce) and also Purpose Group V (Shop).
In 2018, the NBeS has been expanded to take into account the requirements of UBBL for Safety and Fire Protection adopted by the Fire and Rescue Department of Malaysia (JBPM) for the purpose of automatically reviewing the approval of the Building Plan. This special task has been implemented and ready in December 2018.
4 pilot projects were implemented in 2019, together with PPj, MBPJ, MPK and MBMB. Overall, these four local authorities have provided positive feedback on the development of NBeS through the implementation of the pilot project. CIDB also received feedback on the proposal to add system functions to the implementation of Act 133: Roads, Drains and Buildings Act 1974 from the local authorities involved and its implementation was successfully made in 2020.
Three more pilot projects were implemented in 2021 to simulate the usability of this system at the local authority level. The implementation of the apprenticeship project for Purpose Group IV and V (Ofﬁce Buildings & Shops) was implemented with DBKU and 2 local authorities that have been involved in the implementation of this system since 2017, namely PPj and MBPJ to replace 2 more city-level local authorities that could not be implemented during the project this.
Improving BIM technology skills is very critical at this time so that the Malaysian government’s intention to adopt the use of BIM processes in construction projects can be realized to help increase the productivity of the construction industry.
Recently, the spread of the Covid-19 epidemic has triggered the practice of new norms, socially and economically. The Construction Industry is the most affected area and needs serious attention to address this critical scenario. In addition, the Malaysian construction industry is often plagued with problems such as low productivity and quality, unsatisfactory compliance with laws and regulations at construction sites, high accident rates at construction sites and also unsatisfactory site management.
The use of the latest application systems and technologies can improve construction site management to address related issues.
The system uses OpenBIM technology and every process is online. Several types of engines have been developed in this system to produce reports, 3D rendering for 3D display and ruleset management (UBBL, MS, UUK) for local government use. The uploaded 3D model can be displayed directly from the web browser along with the review results on the 3D model.
CONVINCE Portal Maintenance and Improvement Services
The Construction Information for Your Convenience (CONVINCE) portal is branded from the National Construction Industry Information Center (NCIIC). It is one of the initiatives under the Construction Industry Transformation Program (CITP) aimed at increasing the availability of construction information. CONVINCE was developed to create Malaysia’s main construction information collection and reference centre, as well as to function as a data warehouse.
The CONVINCE portal has been developed to channel construction-related information interactively and up-to-date in the form of statistics and data related to the country’s construction industry. CIDBEC has been appointed to manage and regulate the CONVINCE Portal.
In addition to the operation and maintenance of the portal, CIDBEC also implemented improvements to the CONVINCE portal in version 2.0 from 2020 to 2021 to ensure that the portal is maintained and operates well in providing complete, uniform and up-to-date information before being displayed to the public.
The portal uses SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) for statistical display and there are more than 100 types of comprehensive reports involving a list of data from CIDB such as project lists, contractors, construction personnel, Certiﬁed Construction Product and Material (CCPM) and other sector data construction. Users can download all reports available on the portal in PDF, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word. In addition, CIDBEC also provides various types of reports for the use of CIDB.
Disaster Recovery Center Preparation and Maintenance Services For CIDB
CIDB in line with the development of information and communication technology (ICT) has developed various systems to support and improve the quality of service of its delivery systems to their customers. The ICT transformation of CIDB’s core business took place in 2017 and customer dealings with CIDB were conducted only online.
This implementation has had an impact on the data transactions received by the CIDB database. To ensure that the accessibility to the system network is at an optimal level, the CIDB Data Center has been located in a location that has facilities and security features that have been set for the speciﬁcations of the Data Center.
In order to continue daily operations in the event of a disaster on the Data Center, CIDB needs to provide a Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) which serves as a storage centre (backup) for data / CIDB applications.
The Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) is a physical infrastructure to replace the main operations centre in the event of a disaster. The DRC is equipped with hardware, software, application systems and network systems that resemble a main operating centre or data centre.
The provision of this DRC involves the allocation of space to house server racks and other related hardware as well as a direct connection to the network to enable automatic data transfer.
Starting September 2020, CIDB Malaysia has appointed CIDBEC for DRC preparation and maintenance services for 2 years to CIDBEC to ensure that the service objectives can be achieved:
- Ensure the continuity of services in the event of a disaster to the ICT application system that disables CIDB Malaysia’s services.
- Ensure the conﬁdentiality, integrity and availability of CIDB Malaysia data and information through DRC facilities by minimizing the impact of ICT security incidents.
- Protect CIDB Malaysia’s ofﬁcial conﬁdential data and information from
- Ensure the availability of data and information when required by users.
- Ensure access only to legitimate users or receipt of data and information from legitimate sources only.
- Warn possible malicious threats (e.g.viruses and system hackers) and provide advice and provide appropriate protection measures.
- Work with all relevant parties to identify the source of ICT security threats or
