The lack of adequate number of affordable housing projects in Malaysia has been an acute problem for a very long time. It’s a positive notion that new projects on developing affordable hous-es are being undertaken in the recent times, but the number of affordable houses is still way low compared to the massive public demand. In order to construct huge number of housings in a short time and at a cheaper cost, an industrialised method of construction has been proposed and adopted in projects. The presentation will look at current cutting edge technology to construct affordable housing, a combination between innovative building material and lightweight formwork, where the system has been effectively use to construct an inexpensive, high quality house in nine days.
