Sustainability Performance Of Building Construction Projects In Indonesia

buildings, construction projects, performance map, sustainable construction.



This study aims to build a performance map of various sustainability criteria for building construction projects. The criteria related to the appropriate site development category; material resources and cycle; and indoor health and comfort category have high sustainability performance; while criteria related to water conservation, energy efficiency and conservation, and building environment management still have low performance. Criteria related to the use of wood materials from legal trade sources, the use of materials originating from regional areas, and restrictions on chemical pollutants at the project site have been well implemented at the project site. There are other criteria that still have low performance, which are related to the low efforts to reduce heat island effects, the absence of rainwater storage from building roofs, the absence of effort to use the used materials, the limited use of environmentally friendly materials, the limited use of prefabricated materials, and the absence of a construction waste management plan.
