Sustainable construction practices in the execution of infrastructure projects

What is it about?

The study was to test the perceived existence of the gap between the government regulations’ indicators of sustainable construction and its practice in the execution of infrastructure projects as identified in the gap.

Why is it important?

This research looks into the existing gaps between sustainable construction principles and their practical implementation in Indonesian infrastructure projects. This will foster a holistic approach in the practice of undertaking sustainable procurement processes, thus reinforcing project management techniques in the phase of sustainable construction project execution. This also strengthens the interrelated roles and responsibilities of project stakeholders by taking into account principles of safety, balance and the harmony of infrastructure and the environment.
