    Abstract

    Kebelakangan ini, projek persisiran air kian diterima konsepnya di dalam industri pembinaan Malaysia. Dengan mensintesiskan penyelidikan sedia ada terhadap projek persisiran air, didapati bahawa isu-isu berkaitan modenisasi dan pemulihan telah dikaji secara mendalam. Walau bagaimanapun, masih terdapat kajian yang tidak menyeluruh berkaitan faktor-faktor penyumbang dan kesan-kesannya. Kajian ini adalah penting kerana ia akan mempengaruhi prestasi dan pembangunan projek persisiran air di Malaysia. Kajian ini bermatlamatkan untuk mengenalpasti faktor-faktor yang menyumbang kepada perlaksanaan projek persisiran air di Malaysia. Kajian ini juga bertujuan untuk mengenalpasti kesan-kesan daripada perlaksanaan projek persisiran air di Malaysia. Di samping itu, kajian juga berobjektifkan untuk mengenalpasti hubungan di antara faktor-faktor penyumbang dan kesan-kesan daripada perlakasanaan projek persisiran air di Malaysia. Kajian ini menggunakan pendekatan mod campuran. Di dalam pendekatan kaedah kuantitatif, kertas soal selidik telah diedarkan kepada kontraktor-kontraktor yang berpendaftaran G7 di negeri Pulau Pinang, Johor, Selangor and Kuala Lumpur (Wilayah Persekutuan). Jumlah soal selidik dari semua negeri adalah berdasarkan populasi kontraktor atau pemaju G7 yang berdaftar dengan Lembaga Pembangunan Industri Pembinaan Malaysia (CIDB) pada bulan Januari 2015 di mana Pulau Pinang, Johor, Kuala Lumpur dan Selangor mempunyai jumlah pendaftaran 308, 363, 1259 dan 1168, masing-masing. The waterfront projects are momentously gaining its concept of development in the Malaysian construction industry recently. By critically synthesizing the existing research on the waterfront projects, it can be seen that issues related to modernization, revitalization and rehabilitation have been studied rigorously. However, there is still insufficient study on the contributing factors and resulting impacts. This study is imperative as it will influent the performance and the growth of the waterfront projects in Malaysia. This research aims to identify the factors contributing to the implementation of waterfront projects in Malaysia. It also intends to identify the impacts resulting from the implementation of waterfront projects in Malaysia. Besides, the other objective of the research is to identify the relationship between the contributing factors and the resulting impacts from the implementation of waterfront projects in Malaysia. The mixed method approach has been used in carrying out this research. In the quantitative approach, questionnaire surveys have been distributed among the G7 contractors within the state of Penang, Johor, Selangor and Kuala Lumpur (Wilayah Persekutuan). The total questionnaire varies from all the states based on the population of the contractors or the developer of G7 who were registered with Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) as in January 2015 in which Penang, Johor, Kuala Lumpur and Selangor has a total registration of 308, 363, 1259 and 1168, respectively.
