© Maxwell Scientific Organization, 2014. The aim of this study is investigating IBS potential solution for achieving its prospective in the area of green construction and sustainability. Malaysia has embarked on initiatives for sustainable development consistent with global concerns on the environment and sustaining the world resources for the future generations. The issues of sustainability and green construction have been duly highlighted in the Construction Industry Master Plan (2005-2015) as being of significant importance for the Malaysian construction industry. In this regard, industrialized construction has the unique characteristics to respond well to the sustainability challenge facing the construction industry. Industrialized construction assist adopters in term of cost and time certainty, attaining better construction quality and productivity, reducing risk related to occupational safety and health. But, despite all those capabilities most of the construction work in Malaysia is still applying conventional methods which are not often sustainable. Thus, this study tries to explore obstacles and drivers in steering IBS towards the agenda of green and sustainability.
