This paper documented the rationale, risks and recommendation based on the collaborative design-build process and experiences. The data derived from the quantitative and qualitative method in which was recorded through meetings, pictures, newspaper and surveys.  All data were analysed descriptively through comparative tables, images and graphs.  The outcome will present the benchmark in designing and engaging with the community through motivating community interaction, minimising living costs and improving the quality of life.
