Conceptual Designing
Academy of Hospital

• The primary objective of concept designing is to


Administration, Kolkata Chapter

– Arrive at a clearly defined, feasible concept, and


Hospital Architectural Planning and – Present it in a form that results in client understanding
and acceptance.
Designing – Part 3
• To achieve this objective,
– The architect must understand and verify the project
program,
– Explore alternative solutions, and
Prof (Col) Dr R N Basu – Provide a reasonable basis for analyzing the cost of the
Adviser, Quality and Academics project.

Conceptual Designing Conceptual Designing


• Concept design requires that the architect grapples • It is vital that the architect and the client agree the objectives and
outcomes in advance
with the real issues of bulk and form
• Concept design simply can be:
• The architect visualizes the scale and mass and the – A series of sketches, or
general appearance of the building – It can go into considerable depth
• Concept design implies • Concept design is usually an iterative process
– An idea or range of ideas – A series of design meetings takes place with the client
– Through this process,
– A development approach
• A more precise concept is developed
– A guiding concept and a design intent • The client better understands their own project and the architectural concept
• Concept design explores the resolution of the brief – During this time, the architect accommodates the evolving requests of
client
(programming)

Conceptual Designing Conceptual Designing


• The concept design is seldom an “Eureka” moment • The concept design incorporates:
– It is not that a single idea pops up into the head which – The plan form
resolves everything
– Volumetry (i.e., placing of blocks on the site plan)
• The iterative meetings tests ideas
– Architecture and overall shape of the building
• This results in satisfactory resolution of often
conflicting criteria • The concept design should encapsulate:
– These ideas could be aesthetic, organisational, – The spirit
technical, social or contextual – The form
• A successful concept design is one that fulfils most – Principal aesthetic and technical principles
of the criteria that the client, the architect and the
team considers to be important – The real constraints of its site and local legislation

Conceptual Designing
Design Development
• Deliverables at the end of schematic design:
• Design development (DD) phase of architectural design
– Conceptual site plan begins after the approved conceptual design
– Preliminary building plans with elevations and sections • The aspects of design depicted are:
– Perspective sketches – architectural,
– Study models – structural,
– Electronic visualizations, and – HVAC,
– Electrical,
– Statistical summary of the design area and other
characteristics in comparison to the programme – Plumbing and
requirements – Fire Protection Systems are essential

• Some other aspects are also integrated with the design • Design Development documents are often
depending on building type. These are:
– acoustic and vibration considerations,
similar to those in schematic design
– lighting concepts, – But contains more detail in the drawings and
– landscaping design, and other specialized factors specifications
• DD may rely on extensive three dimensional • Client reviews these documents
representations
• This is to communicate both the overall design and – Upon his written approval, the construction
details to the design team, the client, and the documentation begins

Working Drawing Working Drawing


• Definition of Working Drawings: • Working drawing provide:
– Set of drawings for the construction of a building – Dimensioned, graphical information
– This includes architectural, structural and service – This is used by the contractor to construct the
drawings works
– The working drawing usually include:
– This can also be used by suppliers to fabricate
• Site drawings, components of the works, or
• General location drawings (plans, sections, elevations ),
• To assemble or install components
• Assembly drawings and details completely dimensioned
and bearing all the indications required for construction.

Working Drawing Working Drawing


• Traditionally, working drawings consists of two- • Working drawings may include:
dimensional orthogonal projections of the building – Title blocks
– Dimensions
• These are prepared by using Computer Aided
– Notation, and
Design (CAD) software
– Symbols
• However, increasingly, Building Information
• These should be consistent with industry standards
Modeling (BIM) is being used to create 3
– This is necessary so that their meaning is clear
dimensional representations of building for the

Working Drawing
• The quality of production information is extremely important
• Unless it is prepared and coordinated properly, there will be TO BE CONTINUED
disputes and delays on site as well as cost escalation
• Common problems with working drawing are:
– Poor co-ordination of information
– Errors and omissions
– Information not going to right people
– Poor presentation
• Working Drawings may be updated when the works are
completed
– This reflects changes to the works that may have worked
