Nima, Mekdam A. and Abdul Kadir, Mohd Razali and Jaafar, Mohd Saleh and Alghulami, Riadh G. (2004) Constructability Concepts in Kuala Selangor Cable-Stayed Bridge in Malaysia. Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, 130 (3). pp. 315-321. ISSN 0733-9364


The writers formulated a case study of the Kuala Selangor Cable Stayed Bridge to examine the application of the constructability concepts particularly during the conceptual planning and the design phases of the project. This paper presents the advantages of implementing the constructability concepts and the barriers that were encountered when applying these concepts during the planning and design phases of the cable stayed bridge project of Kuala Selangor in Malaysia. The writers concluded that barriers to constructability implementation that are related to the owner were the major impediments in the application of constructability concepts during the early conceptual planning phase. The opinion of the engineer was another factor behind nonapplication of some other concepts. At the same time, many others were implemented due to the awareness and opinion of the engineer and his ability to control their application.
