Consolidation settlement is a general geotechnical problem particularly found in the area where is composed of soft soil. It is caused by the discharge of pore water pressure induced by the increase of stress in the soil mass. Construction of runway above soft soil requires analysis for stability related to the reduction of consolidation settlement and the recovery. This study aims to analyze the settlement comprehensively using empirical methods of Prefabricated Vertical Drains (PVD) and preloading installation. Preloading is a technique by which consolidation of soil can be achieved to a substantial amount before the imposition of actual construction load. According to soil investigation, the characteristic of the soil layer is clay soil, which has the potential to consolidation settlement. The result of the settlement analysis of the taxiway in the research area is from 33 cm to 214 cm. It takes ten years for primary consolidation to reach a 90% degree of consolidation. However, in the Hansbo method of Prefabricated Vertical Drains (PVD) and preloading are applied, with triangular configurations in depth of 11 meters and duration for variation embankment spacing of 1 m is 79 days, 1.5 m is 202 days and 2 m is 390 days. The conclusion of efficient distance of PVD installation and preloading is spacing of 1 m with 79 days for primary consolidation.
