Constructability Issues in Indonesian Construction
Trigunarsyah, Bambang & Young, David M. (2001) Constructability Issues in Indonesian Construction. In Singh, Amarjit (Ed.)

Many construction projects in Indonesia are awarded by competitive bid where professional designers and constructors are engaged in separate contracts. The contractors usually would not be involved until the designs have been completed. This division has been suggested as being responsible for the lack of constructability in construction projects that leads to projects exceeding budgets and schedule deadline. The studies in the US and Australia have demonstrated that improved constructability has lead to significant savings in both cost and time required for completing construction projects. However, in implementing constructability improvement, it is important to consider the uniqueness of the construction industry in a specific country. This paper will present the study performed on the construction contractors in Indonesia in regard to their current constructability practices and its impact on the project performance.
