Abstract

In Malaysia, high demand for refurbishment projects mainly contributed by increase the number of building obsolescence. However, refurbishment projects are difficult to manage compared to new-built due to uncertainty factors inherent in the projects. One of the factors that contribute to the uncertainty of refurbishment project is different types of procurement system used for the projects. The uncertainty mainly contributed by lack of communication and involvement amongst the project stakeholders in all stages in the project process. As a result, most of refurbishment project end up with poor project performance. The main objectives of this paper are to present how procurement system could contribute to the uncertainty and show how they affect the overall performance of refurbishment projects. Triangulation technique was used for research methodology, which involved semi-structured interviews with 15 architects and postal questionnaire survey that involved 234 respondents. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used in data analysis. The result concludes that there is no wide gap between the traditional and design-and-build procurement systems because the designers come from different organizations. High involvement recorded by the contractor for design-and-build procurement method during pre-construction stage. However, there is no significant correlation detected by different types of procurement towards project performance.
