Rusdi Usman Latief, Daisy Pangemanan


In the development of modern construction, the sustainable construction approach has grown in importance. Economic, environmental, and social factors have been identified as influencing its implementation. The use of the sustainable construction method is affected by several additional factors. This study aimed to determine how the Likupang SEZ’s local cultural factors affected sustainable construction methods. The method used is a quantitative study with a sample of the Likupang SEZ in North Sulawesi. The results of this study indicate an influence of local cultural factors of 0.264 on the implementation of the sustainable construction approach in the Likupang SEZ. The results of this study also indicate that local cultural factors are important to consider in implementing sustainable construction. Things that focus on local culture in planting trees as materials for construction, local heritage, Work Culture, and the migrant community environment should be of particular concern in implementing a sustainable construction approach in the Likupang SEZ area. Cultural factors have an important role in ensuring development with this sustainable construction approach considering environmental, social, and economic factors as well as cultural factors as new factors identified as having an influence. This study concludes that it is very important to pay attention to local cultural factors that influence the implementation of a sustainable construction approach in the Likupang SEZ project in North Minahasa Regency, North Sulawesi, Indonesia.
