Minister Receptive to Use of IBS for School Projects

The State Minister of Education and Innovation was receptive to the proposal of utilising Industrial Building System (IBS) to counter the urgent need of replacing dilapidated school building structures with new ones equipped with comfortable and conducive learning space.


During a courtesy call by The Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM) Sabah Branch and Association of Consulting Engineers Malaysia (ACEM) Sabah Branch recently, Datuk Dr Yusof Yakob said the ministry was eager to repair and upgrade run-down schools throughout the state in response to the many press articles on dilapidated schools needing immediate attention.

He looked forward to both the engineering institution and association to propose solutions and adding innovative features such as sustainable energy via solar system, stable internet connection and other technology advancement to bring up, especially the rural children to be at par with those in the urban areas which would boost the education level in the state with improved facilities.

Present at the courtesy call were Datuk Bruno Vun, permanent secretary of the Education and Innovation Ministry: Ir Hj Yahiya Ag Kahar, immediate past chairman of IEM Sabah: Ir James Yong Hon Min, chairman of IEM Sabah; and Ir Warrence Chan and Ir Wahn Kheng Haw, committee members of ACEM Sabah.
