The tight competition in the construction sector in Indonesia’s infrastructure projects presents a challenge to construction service companies, especially in the power plant infrastructure industry. To improve the competitiveness of construction service companies, customer satisfaction guarantees must be created, as follows: 1) Products must be in accordance with the requirements, the project done is completed on time, the costs incurred are relatively cheap and collateral for Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) should be realized. In creating customer satisfaction, the concept of Quality Culture needs to be applied. By using the Deming Cycle method in building a quality culture, it is expected that power plant construction service companies could increase competitiveness. This study aims to determine the effect of developing a quality culture on power plant construction service companies, data obtained through archival analysis, interviews and questionnaire surveys. Data processing concludes the activities needed on developing a quality culture for risk-based organizational functions in power plant construction service companies as a way to increase competitiveness. The results of this study are the concept of building a PDCA-based quality culture in the Quality Management System in a power plant construction services company.
