Keywords:Movement Control Order (MCO), Construction Project Cost, Impact, Factor, Strategies
The cost of a construction project is a very important element in the construction industry especially for the project itself. This is because every construction company needs to have sufficient financial resources to achieve the set financial obligations. However, the MCO implemented to disconnect the COVID-19 network has led to the emergence of situations that affect the cost of construction projects and can cause losses to the contractor. Therefore, this study is implemented to identify the situational factors of MCO that affect the cost of construction projects and identify strategies used to deal with situations that affect the cost of construction projects in Selangor during MCO. This study was conducted at construction sites at Selangor. This study was also implemented by using literature review method and qualitative method by interview through the use of semi -structured interview questions. The respondents involved in the interview questions are the construction site project manager in Selangor. A total of three respondents were involved in the study representing each of the construction sites supervised respectively. The findings of the study found that the main factor of the MCO situation that affects the cost of construction projects is that there is no physical distancing at the construction site which ultimately leads to an increase in management costs and a limited number of employees. While the strategy used to deal with situations that affect the cost of construction projects during MCO is to apply for an extension of time for construction projects, provide complete supporting documents and ensure employees comply with SOPs. Therefore, this study is important in focusing on solving problems involving the cost of construction projects during MCO as well as to reduce losses to the contractors.
