Crashing a project is a process of accelerating an activity or multiple activities in order to shorten the overall durations of a project. Project acceleration will increase the total cost of construction work. However, labour productivity decline with the use of crashing approach and it will give an impact to the quality of work at construction site. The purpose of this study is to obtain the impacts due to project crashing process application in construction. A total of 100 questionnaire forms were circulated to industrial personnel to obtain their reaction and opinion towards the purpose of this study. However, about 53% of the forms are returned. The data were analyzed by using Statistical Average Index Value Analysis. Series of structured interview with the 5 experts have been conducted to validate the finding and also to obtain more valuable information and explanation towards this study. The result reveals that majority of the respondents (>85%) are agreed with the purpose surveys questions related to the project crashing method. This indicates that project crashing is one of the effective techniques which can be implemented in construction project due to accelerate the project to give an impact through the route of a construction project. At the same time, this technique can be as one of the risks technique in the operational to construction project stages. Result from this findings gives better outlook for future study especially on the Project Crashing Impact to labour productivity and quality of work in construction project.
