We are decorient. We are building and civil engineers, known for leading on safety and quality implementation in construction industry since 1970. Our heritage is 50 years of international standardized construction services in the country as we were part of one of Europe’s largest contractors active in 30 countries across the globe.
Since May 2021, the new shareholders have completed a management buy-out of the Indonesian subsidiary of BAM International, who decided to refocus on their European home markets.

“Working for The Right Contractor was the tease from the recruiters when I joined Decorient. Being The Right Contractor is not an easy thing to achieve, since that also means doing everything properly, as how it should be, so eventually we can become our Clients’, Employees’ and Vendors’ Trusted Partner.”
Our purpose is creating values for our stakeholders:
Decorient was first established in 1970 by large Dutch contractors (a.o. Hollandsche Beton Group) who were entering Indonesian market to compete with other international contractors. The name Decorient stood for Dutch Engineers and Contractors in the Orient.
Interbeton, a subsidiary of Hollandsche Beton Groep (HBG) expanded into the global market and in 1977 acquired the majority shares of Decorient. With this acquisition, Interbeton brought into the company its vast expertise from marine and nearshore marine structures to buildings, airports, bridges and tunnels. The company name remained as PT Decorient Indonesia.
In 2002 the parent company of Interbeton, HBG was merged with BAM and eventually Interbeton (including Decorient) was rebranded as BAM International. The company name changed to PT BAM Decorient Indonesia.
In 2020, due to the change of strategy from BAM to refocus on its European home markets, BAM International decided to wind down its operation worldwide. This decision led to a management buy-out of the company which was completed in May 2021. The company name was changed to PT Decorient Partaya Indonesia. The name “Partaya” originated from Kawi (Old Javanese language) which means “trustworthy.”
For more than 50 years, our excellent track record of delivering consistent high-quality product is well-documented. We aim to continue to be the first-choice trusted partner for our stakeholders in construction industry.
We believe that building high performance team and maintaining good relationship with stakeholders need Trust as the foundation.
We value transparency because it’s what we expect from our vendors and suppliers – we don’t appreciate being kept in the dark. Our commitment to transparency affects how we communicate internally and how we communicate to our clients. We believe it’s incredibly important when companies are putting their faith in us.
It can often be tempting to bend the truth, or sugar coat it, often when things go wrong in embarrassing or harmful ways. But it’s precisely those situations where open and honest communication needs to be absolute. Our commitment to truth is deeper than stating the facts – it extends to situations such as searching the root causes of issues and highlighting them early, proactively. We value truth over comfort.
To establish a long and fruitful relationship, we must start with understanding each other better. Then by understanding the needs, we know how to achieve our stakeholders’ satisfaction. We aim to deliver what we promised, so we could become your reliable partner.
Being thoughtful in what we do
Work preparation is the most important in our project execution. All activities need to follow the procedures in our management system, where we define every minimum step required before executing the job.
We are guided by our values of being trustworthy and open communication is a big part of it. We encourage our employees to be proactive in communication. Our lean and flat organization emphasize on direct communication rather than communication within a bureaucratic structure.
We have invested in digital construction (BIM) and will continue to explore creative solutions for our stakeholders’ problems. We continually seek new ways to improve productivity, sustainability, and safety.
Unity in diversity
Our employees are people from different background. In the history of our company, we have proven to be able to work efficiently with people from different nationalities, understanding cultural differences better than a homogeneous company. We are embracing women into construction movement as we believe it can lead to improvements in communication and building relationships.
To help us achieving our purpose in creating values for our stakeholders, we base our business model on:
We are fully embracing digital ways of working to improve the safety, sustainability, and constructability of our projects. We’ve invested in trainings to ensure our people have the skills matching our ambition.
Our Digital Construction Methods include:
We have experiences in achieving BREEAM, GreenMark and Greenship certification in our Clients’ projects, managing the required processes during construction. We are also a member of Green Building Council Indonesia (GBCI).
