  • Characteristics of Procurement Methods in Malaysia – Comparing
           Design-Bid-Build, Design-Build and Construction Management

    • Authors: Azeanita Suratkon, Riduan Yunus, Rafikullah Deraman
      Pages: 1 - 11
      Abstract: Design-Bid-Build (DBB) or commonly known as Traditional method is the earliest and most prevalent procurement method used in Malaysian construction industry. Design-Build (DB) and Construction Management (CM) procurement methods were later introduced in Malaysia as an endeavour to satisfy and accommodate the increase in project complexity and the need for avoiding drawbacks of the Traditional methods. Each procurement method has different nature and possesses certain characteristics. Therefore, this study was carried out to ascertain and compare the characteristics of these three procurement methods that are implemented in building construction projects in Malaysia. A questionnaire survey was conducted among architects, consultants, contractors and owners or developers to elicit their feedback on the characteristics which were categorised into time, cost, quality, complexity and flexibility, degree of involvement and responsibility allocation and technical expertise. The findings indicated that only DB method almost fulfils all the characteristics under the six categories, whereas, DBB methods garnered agreement only for certain characteristics under time, cost, complexity and flexibility and technical expertise categories. Meanwhile, the only CM method’s characteristics that satisfy agreement from the respondents are the often used of fast track approach and lack of certainty in price. This study concludes that when a procurement method is adopted for a construction project, not all the features or characteristics will turn out as expected. There are many factors that contribute and are influential on the success in procurement methods that are worth for further investigation.

  • Historical Building Inspection using the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

    • Authors: Hanita Yusof, Mustaffa Anjang Ahmad, Aadam Mohammed Taha Abdullah
      Pages: 12 - 20
      Abstract: Building inspection is very much required for all buildings especially those historical ones to maintain the structure condition and the safety of the people around. Visual inspection is commonly conducted using manual descriptive information carried out by the inspector personally. The problem with this technique of assessment is that the time needed to write all the defect description on site and to access difficult area can be hazardous. The aim of performing historical building inspection on Tan Swee Hoe’s historical mansion is to evaluate the overall condition of the building with Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) image assisted inspection and Condition Survey Protocol 1 (CSP1) method. From this drone assisted inspection, it shows that the time spent on site is less than half an hour and the data collected being evaluated with CSP1 method defined that the building is dilapidated. The overall building condition is in red class and require serious attention to avoid any injuries to the visitors. To prevent a possible failure of a building in the coming years, a suitable condition inspection has been carried out to identify the current existing defect so that it would be fixed before further damage to the building and visitors around it.

However, it’s failed to prevent the impact of accidents occur when involving the road furniture especially road barrier. This study purpose a new innovation design for the construction of road divider that more sustainable and greener which is eco-friendly. This study was conducted to modify the material used on the road divider, so that the suitability of the material can reduce the impact of the vehicle during road accident. Objective of this study is to test and design greener sustainable materials as a road median component. Besides, this study is to determine the suitability and characteristics of materials for road median. Materials used in this study are gunny sacks filled with sand, laterite soil, soft turfing (cow and pearl grass) and used tire as a cushion effect. Based on experiment testing, sieve analysis result showed that river sand is a good grade sand and suitable for road median. While, direct shear test showed sand and soil used for this study are suitable because there have a high shear strength. For grass observation, cow grass is suitable compare pearl grass in term of growth rate, maintenance cost, durability on sunlight exposure and weather in Malaysia. The load applied for conducting impact test on the sand sack were 14.08N 25.6N 44.8N. The initial damage occurred when a force reaches at 44.8N. However, the condition of the arrangement of sand sack is still stable. In conclusion, this new innovation of green and sustainable road divider has high potential in absorbing the impact of accidents.

      Pages: 51 - 58
      Abstract: Majority of UAE construction works were reported experiencing changes during execution process which exerts adverse effects to project success. Among the negative impacts is the failing in achieving satisfactory schedule performance. This poor schedule performance is also common issue faced by construction works globally. This paper addressed a study on various client related factors causing changes and parameters that affecting project schedule performance. The study was conducted through quantitative method. The data was gathered through questionnaire survey amongst the practitioners from contractor and consultant organization engaged in construction project of UAE and analysed statistically using significant index value. Results obtained in this study highlighted lack of coordination, replacement of key personnel by clients and inadequate understanding of clients need as three major issues related to client which are responsible for changes in construction works. While delay in completion schedule, slower project progress and dispute between owner & contractor are as major parameters affecting schedule performance. For correlation analysis, it was found that lack of coordination between the parties has significant correlation with delay in completion schedule, and dispute between owner & contractor. Also replacement of key personnel from client has significant correlation with schedule delay that are additional works and re-work/redesign. These finding will be helpful for practitioner in prioritizing the factors of change and schedule measuring parameters for improving schedule performance.

  • Potential Implementation of Lightweight Steel Panel System in Affordable
           Housing Project: Developers Perspective

    • Authors: Misriyanti Saikah, Narimah Binti Kasim, Rozilah Kasim
      Pages: 59 - 75
      Abstract: Utilization of Industrialized Building System (IBS) becomes increasingly dominant in the construction of affordable housing in Malaysia.  Theoretically, utilization of IBS system can benefit to reduce the affordable housing price due to the less labor involvement and short constructions time.  However, current IBS usage in housing construction still cannot fulfill the affordable housing demand especially in term of price and housing quality.  Recent study reveals the lack adoption of IBS component in construction industry mainly caused by poor perception among stakeholder toward the system.  Hence, some alterations in the supply of the IBS component essential to being prepared in order to reach the price target to permit all middle-income groups to own the quality house.   Construction industry also can explore the other types of IBS system focusing on lightweight types such as wood or steel system which clearly could give benefit to the housing industry on faster works and high housing quality.  Due to strong and durable characteristic of lightweight steel panel, it can be seen as an alternative component to be explored to enhance construction practices of affordable housing project.  Therefore, the main purpose of this study is to identify the potential of lightweight steel panel system to be implemented for affordable housing project.  Accordingly, for the highlight in reducing affordable housing price integrate with provision of good quality housing this research focus on feedback from developer about the proposed lightweight steel panel system. This research conducted an interview with six project managers with more than three years working experience in housing construction project at South of Peninsular Malaysia.  Developer’s experience in affordable housing project mainly for landed house is coinciding because of lightweight steel panel system suitability for not more than two stories house.  The result reveals that, respondent prefer to the advantages of lightweight steel panel system in term of faster installation works, low maintenance work, flexibility and smart construction.  In conclusion, the ability of the system to decrease housing price at the same time sustain the desired quality of housing will increase ability and satisfaction for middle-income earner to own the house.

  • Integrating Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Sustainability to

    • Authors: Nur Syamimi Zulkefli, Faizul Azli Mohd-Rahim, Nurshuhada Zainon
      Pages: 76 - 83
      Abstract: Apropos to numerous environmental issues highlighted globally and locally, Malaysia has now moving forward towards new agenda of greening the cities. A positive movement trend of new green building in the country can be seen as number of projects going into green rating application are increasing yearly. Nevertheless, sustainability impact is considered as significantly small since newly developed green building represent small percentage as compared to the existing non-green building. Therefore, the idea of greening the existing building through refurbishment emerged in order to achieve wider sustainability objectives. Apart from that, supported with recent evolvement of technology and digitalization in construction industry, in lieu with governments’ strategies to adopt Industry 4.0, Building Information Modelling (BIM) has also been acknowledged and used broadly as a solution to integrate and facilitate management of information throughout building lifecycles. Considering these two areas; sustainability and BIM are continuously gaining momentum these days, this paper attempts to explore BIM’s potentials as an enabler to help greening the existing non-green building. Literature review is conducted focus on reviewing BIM and sustainability present status in Malaysian construction industry, also their relationship including examining potential areas where BIM may contribute to enhance the buildings’ sustainability performances. Based on the reviews, there is a potential of bridging the two areas considering both has becoming a national construction industry agenda since the government released CITP2016-2020. To further concur the ideas, literature reviews has also proven that the ability of BIM to facilitate various functions has enable it to support several sustainability analyses such as energy, carbon emission, lighting, water, materials and waste, building and site, and costing analysis.

    • Authors: Abdul Qadir Memon, Aftab Hameed Memon, Mohsin Ali Soomro
      Pages: 84 - 92
      Abstract: This paper assessed the occurrence and severity level of various factors causing time and cost overrun in construction projects of Pakistan. Investigation was carried out through questionnaire form prepared based on 55 common factors identified from literature. Survey was done amongst the representatives of the contractors involved in handling construction activities in Pakistan. A total of 46 responses gathered against 100 distributed forms were analysed statistically. The results obtained from the analyses based on Average Index values revealed that delay in obtaining permits from the governmental agencies, financial difficulties are common issue faced in construction works of Pakistan. The study also revealed that high cost of machinery & its maintenance, inadequate planning & scheduling and slow information flow between parties have significant effect on time overrun cost while critical factors affecting cost overrun are high cost of machinery & its maintenance, unsuitable construction methods and lack of experience of contractors in affecting project cost. The findings of this study will be helpful for the practitioner in planning for achieving timely completion of the projects and also within the estimated cost.
