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.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
