The construction industry in Malaysia is faced with lack of access. accuracy, breadth and depth of industry data. Information is an important element in the decision making process. Although cost information on the Malaysian construction industry is available through various organisations, most of it is available for that organisation usage and is not easily accessible by third parties.
The Building Cost Information Services Malaysia (BCISM Sdn. Bhd.), a collaborative effort between the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB Malaysia) and the Royal Institution of Surveyors Malaysia (RISM) is entrusted to operate the National Construction Cost Centre portal (myN3C) on behalf of CIDB Malaysia to provide the centralised data bank for construction cost.
