Infrastructure development is very important for a nation and vital for its economic growth. Development of infrastructure of a country is generally led by the construction and manufacturing industry of that nation. Technological innovations which are leading the various segments of this industry towards progress and various new developments are changing the way the industry is growing. Changing home buyers’ preferences and reduced labor costs are bringing to light the enormous potential that the industry holds and the vast opportunities that are there to be exploited in this industry. Further, the growing trend of automation in the construction and manufacturing industry has resulted in the reduction of costs, thus contributing to the rise of the industry.
Office buildings are those which are constructed to be used by companies or organizations so that they are able to perform their business operations that are related to the office. This category also includes those buildings as well, in which more than half of the floor space is used by offices and rest is used for other purposes, thus they are being called mixed-use buildings. The Malaysian office buildings construction market has observed some fluctuations in the recent years in terms of value and average annual growth rate.
