CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATIONS
5.1 Summary of the result
This research was completed to get a clearer understanding of the failure to comply a
standard specification in construction. Standard specifications of construction are the main
important thing to achieve successfully good result on construction. The aim of this study is to
investigate the types of problems due to the failure in construction and to examine the effects of
not applying the standard specifications in construction. It is important to investigate the types of
problems due to the failure in construction and to examine the effects of not applying the
standard specification in construction, because it shows us the important of applying the standard
specifications of construction can give a negative impact on the work produced in construction.
From this research, the data will be valuable to students, academic staff and non
academic staff of Civil Engineering of Ump. The findings may help UMP students in
understanding the important of applying the standard specifications of construction in
construction and the effects of not complying it. It is useful for them, when they worked as
engineer in the future. Furthermore, the data may help the academic staff and non academic staff
of Civil Engineering UMP to remind students about the important of standard specification in
There were some limitations that were found when completing this literature review.
From our research on survey, we only take a respondent from students, staff academics and non
staff academics of Faculty of Civil Engineering and Earth resources in University Malaysia
Pahang. This is because, the time given was too short and we had not enough time to do research
on others respondent outside UMP cause of other tasks likes assignments, test, and daily
activities of others courses. We also have difficulties in finding articles about our research which
is specification of constructions. Most of the articles we found on our researched are not
available and must be purchased first before we can read it, so it bring difficult on us on writing
literature review. However, all the tasks given are been completed by us on time.
There were a suggestions or recommendation that we can do which is we need to choose
the respondents randomly from all of parties involved in construction likes engineers, project
manager, site supervisor and others professional who play an important role in construction so
that we can get an accurate results on our findings. Other than that, we must choose the best
objectives related on our title and changed it into a small scope to get good results. This is
because with the small scope, we can support the objective and research question easily. The
findings of this study and recommendations also can be used in the future research and give
awareness on how important the specifications of construction in constructions.
This study is about to investigate the failure to comply with the standard specifications in
construction. In system engineering a specification is very important. Specifications help avoid
duplication and inconsistencies, allow for accurate estimates of necessary work and resources. In
order to get the good results on construction is to apply the right specifications of construction.
Nowadays, we heard a lot of damages on building, building collapse and failure of structure.
This is because the contractors did not follow the right specifications of constructions in their
work. Most of contractors rather to reduce their budgets to get more profit by using an old
material and none quality of materials that conflict with the specifications of construction
without thinking of the effects on building in the future. This dangerous situation must be
exposed to all of parties involved in constructions to give them awareness on constructions
It is harder for contractors to use the right specifications because it can reduce their profit
that was deal in contract with clients. Contractors should make changed on their attitudes
because construction damages are also involved people lives. In most of the cases that occurred
on building collapse, roof failure, workers dead are causes by the one of this factors that they
didn’t follow the right specifications of constructions. Regulations should be tightened more by
the authorities likes JKR, SPRM and others to make sure contractors will follow the
specifications given to avoid accident. This matter should be taken seriously by all of party
involved in constructions. The right way on applying the specifications of constructions also give
more benefit to workers on site, people, clients and others likes reduce an accident on site,
prevent building damage and produced high quality of construction.
In conclusion, all of parties involved in construction must play their own role and
responsible for ensuring the rights specifications of constructions can be apply in construction.
The severe punishment should be performed if there is still a contractor who failure to comply
with the right specifications of constructions. Failure to comply with the specifications of
construction should be avoid to preventing accident on site, building damages, roof failure and
others causes that damages the construction. All of parties involved in constructions have to
corporate on achieving the good future of construction.
