Construction Quality Assessment System (CONQUAS 21) is a system to assess the quality of a building. It was developed by Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) Singapore (now known as Building and Construction Authority (BCA)). Resent years, Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) Malaysia has enforced the contractors and developers to undergo quality assurance and quality control (QAQC) in the projects. As a result, the contractors and developers are starting to implement the QAQC in the projects and CONQUAS 21 is one the choice. However, in Malaysia, the applying of CONQUAS 21 is limited at big companies with great financial and well understanding in CONQUAS 21. Therefore, postal questionnaire is conducted to gain the information from the contractors and developers around the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor area regarding the application of CONQUAS 21. The data collected are then being analyzed by using frequency distribution, measurement of central tendency and scoring method. From the data analysis, the main advantages of CONQUAS 21 are to benchmark the quality control of workmanship in the construction site and provide a standard quality assessment system to evaluate workmanship. Even though there are a lot of advantages from applying CONQUAS 21, but most of the respondents agree that CONQUAS 21 requires a lot of time and workforce for the inspection. As a summary, future research is suggested to compare the preference of the application between the CONQUAS 21 and the QLASSIC and to find out the improvement of the impacts from the implementing CONQUAS 21 in construction industry.
