Abstract

The environmental impact from the concrete construction industry is quite alarming. The industry is embarking into improving the concrete performance and exploring into alternative materials to reduce such impact. An area which is lacking is improvement in the quality of concrete practice itself. By having good concrete practice, a good quality concrete can be achieved. This paper proposed a performance measurement of concrete practice and applies the measurement to assess the quality of concrete practice for a concrete structure project in Malaysia. © 2010 IEEE.
