Bakti, Erman & Trigunarsyah, Bambang (2003) Constructability Implementation at Corporate Level. In Hoedajanto, D., Imran, I., & Abduh, M. (Eds.) 9th East Asia-Pacific Conference on Structural Engineering and Construction (EASEC9), 16-18 December 2003, Bali, Indonesia.


Increased competitiveness in construction industry requires the improvement of a construction companies capabilities, which combine quality of materials and construction works with economic and schedule aspects. Many studies and procedures in quality improvement focus on project quality improvement technique and efficiency such as total quality management, value engineering, designability, contractibility, constructability, operability, maintainability etc. This paper focuses the study on constructability, which is the optimum use of construction knowledge and experience in planning, engineering, procurement, and field operation to achieve overall project objectives. A case study was performed at one of Indonesian construction company, who applies the design and builds type of contract for industrial plant projects such as cement & mineral, petrochemical, power plant, oil & gas projects, etc. The case study is aimed to know and analyze the implementation of constructability in planning and design stage at corporate level, that focusing in understanding, advantage measurement, barrier, and effectiveness of the implementation and recommendation and its improvement. The case study shows that the implementation of constructability during planning and design stage increases the project performance with the most of influenced factor is construction sensitive schedule.
