Abstract

The construction industry is one of the main contributors to global warming. The long, fragmented, and complexed process in the construction industry may inevitably increase the energy consumption of a construction project. The aim of this research is to identify the influencing factors of energy consumption in construction projects based on the perception of contractors in Indonesia. The qualitative research approach was adopted through literature studies resulting in 28 factors classified into factors related to material planning, management, and construction method. Data was collected through 1-5 Likert questionnaires distributed to 50 contractors with a response rate of 72%. This research found the top five influencing factors of energy consumption in construction projects, i.e. the construction methods, the adoption of Building Information Modelling (BIM), heavy equipment planning,the certification of material suppliers and distributors, and the workforce management. These results may help the construction stakeholders in formulating the comprehensive strategies to reduce the energy consumption in construction projects.
