Ir Wong Chee Fui is a specialist at Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR). He has been involved in the design, project management and implementation of major construction projects both locally and internationally, and thus has extensive knowledge of the construction industry. His experiences include highway infrastructure design, water supply management, water resources and dam construction, sewerages, landfills and waste management.

The webinar aimed to share Malaysia’s experience in the digital transformation in the construction industry towards the adoption of Industry 4.0.

The presentation coveredanthe introduction on Industry 4.0, Malaysia’s policy in the implementation of Industry 4.0 and the emerging technology in the construction industry such as building information modelling (BIM), industrialised building system (IBS), drone technology and other emerging technologies.

The recommendations on how the construction industry can move towards the adoption of Industry 4.0 were also discussed.
