Techincal education partnering, tools partnering, partnering delivery method


Construction projects are developing very rapidly, the budget allocation from the Government of Indonesia is increasing every year, at least 10.79% is allocated for infrastructure development each year (BPS and the Indonesian Ministry of Industry). The high development of infrastructure must be balanced with various good management approaches, so that the project does not suffer losses. Construction projects are getting increasingly complex, problems such as schedule delays, material scarcity, and incompabilty in specifications cannot be avoided (Hamza, Shahid, Bin Hainin, & Nashwan, 2019). Various approaches to improve the process are continuously evaluated and implemented, including techincal education in partnering construction projects. The level of partnering in construction projects is very different depending on the project delivery system used, because each project delivery system carries consequences and the level of partnering Techincal education for the implementer. This study aims to reveal the Techincal education in partnering in construction projects for both project delivery systems in the form of Design Bid Build (DBB), Design and Build (DB) and Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC). Through Techincal education in partnering, a project can be assessed on its Techincal education level, so that weaknesses can be improved in partnering. The methodology used is a literature study and a comparison from previous research, the results of this study can be used to confirm the tools to be used in field data collection and Focus Discussion Group (FGD) to formulate partnering strategies in construction projects.
