Abstract

Almatab Sdn. Bhd is one of the construction companies available in Malaysia. Located in SS15 Subang Jaya, Selangor, Almatab is a Class A (Bumiputra) company that has 31 years of experience in building construction and an ISO certified company. This is important for a company like Almatab to stay competitive and maintaining their good track in this industry since the competition in getting jobs in this area are stiff. Almatab is also a registered member of the body of authority such as CIDB, Pusat Khidmat Kontraktor(PKK), Pertubuhan Arkitek Malaysia (PAM), SIRIM and Construction Labour Exchange Centre Berhad (CLAB). Registration with some of the authorize body like CIDB is part of the requirement needed for a Class A contractor like Almatab to abide when operating in this industry and in gaining customers trust on their credibility in safety matters especially at the construction site. However with the changing trend in technology and demand is the evident that's happening in both the private and government sectors right now. In the past, the latter has been criticized for their lack of initiative in testing new products but has taken the lead role to be pro-active. This is manifested in some of the government projects seen around Malaysia, where we see state-of-the-art designs epitomizing the hi-tech look of the millennium. Therefore in this paper will discuss all the possible actions might be taken to improve the construction industry in Malaysia to a new higher level along with the possible innovative technology in the construction management.
