Despite the complexities involved in measuring culture of the construction industry, this culture is regarded as being worthy of research, especially in relation to the organisational culture needed to improve organisational performance. Questionnaire surveys were distributed to selected representative G-7 Indonesian civil engineering contractors in order to assess the organizational culture profiles of the construction companies adopting the Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument (OCAI), which is based on the Competing Values Framework. The findings from the study indicates that different culture types are emphasized in the six cultural dimensions of OCAI, reflecting various elements of cultural values that exist in an organization's operating activities. A comparison between the dominant characteristics of the organizational culture type within Indonesian construction companies, possessing a cultural type similar to that of other global construction companies, shows the differences that exist with construction industries elsewhere in the world. Having different pictures of the culture profiles in the construction industries suggests that the culture profiles within the construction industry might reflect the construction market demand and business environment, in each country, and the goals of each construction company.
