On Tuesday, 10th of October 2017 a group of students from the Department of Civil Engineering Technology, Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UNIMAP) came for an educational visit to Proven Holding’s IBS factory located in Kundang, Selangor. The purpose of the trip was to provide real-world exposure to students on the IBS as part of the Industrialised Building Construction Technology course offered by the Bachelors of Civil Engineering Technology (Construction).
Students are briefed by Proven’s Technical Director, Tn Hj Sufian Hashim on the IBS concept and the IBS products manufactured by Proven. They were given the opportunity to tour the factory and observe the different steps in producing P-slabs, beginning from the prestressing of cables and casting of P-slabs. Later on the students got to see the brick and blocks production area as well. The trip is considered a huge success as all 70 students had shown greater interest on IBS in general, and the application of IBS in the construction industry.
