    Abstract

    Dewasa ini, kos bangunan semakin meningkat dan hal ini menunjukkan bahawa perkadaran yang signifikan daripada kos tersebut mungkin disebabkan perbelanjaan bagi keselamatan bangunan yang semakin meningkat. Keselamatan bangunan memerlukan sesuatu lebih baik bagi menentang peningkatan aktiviti jenayah. Peruntukan langkah keselamatan bangunan diserahkan mengikut budi bicara individu. Minat arkitek dalam merekabentuk bangunan terlindung adalah minima disebabkan kekurangan polisi kerajaan dan kriteria tertentu ke atas keselamatan bangunan. Oleh itu, kajian ini bertujuan mengenal pasti penentu kos keselamatan berdasarkan perspektif pakar binaan dalam pembinaan alam sekitar tentang kos keselamatan bangunan dan memeriksa kebolehan ramalan penentu kos keselamatan dalam persekitaran pembinaan. Pendekatan penyelidikan eksplotari jujukan kaedah bercampur digunakan dalam kajian ini. Dalam fasa kualitatif kajian ini, objektif pertama diperoleh melalui penggunaan reka bentuk penyelidikan fenomenologi dan analisis deskriptif masing-masing. Buildings cost more nowadays, and it is an assertion that significant proportions of such cost might be as a result of increased expenditure on building security. Building security is acquiring greater importance against this backdrop of rise in criminal activities. Provision of security measures in buildings are left to the discretion of private individuals. Architects’ interest in designing protective building is minimal due to inadequate government policy and specific criteria on building security. Therefore, this study aims at exploring the security cost determinants based on built environment professionals’ perceptiveness on building security cost as well as examining the predictive capability of the security cost determinants within the built environment. Mixed methods sequential exploratory research approach was employed in the study. The qualitative phase of this study adopts phenomenological research design and descriptive analysis respectively.
