Mat Noor, Noorsidi Aizuddin, Eves, Chris, Abdul Mutalib, Noor Faizah, & Wahl, Peter (2012) Current speculation in costing approach for Malaysian residential construction. In International Conference On Real Estate 2012 (INTEREC 2012), 9-11 June 2012, Kuala Lumpur. (In Press)


The construction industry has been under pressure for many years to produce economical buildings which offer value for money, not only during the construction phase, but more importantly, during the full life of the building. Whole Life Cycle Costing (WLCC) is a relatively new concept for the construction industry especially on residential development and particularly for Malaysia. Discussing the speculation in using WLCC for the Malaysian residential constructions is the aim for this paper and it is one of the research questions on my research. This paper also wants to gather more speculation that may involve through others experienced. Basically, this paper is written to facilitate the current or future individual which will involve in residential property development sector with a new sensible approach to what at times seems impressively confusing especially in simplifying the operations and maintenance services and rehabilitation as well.
