The job of The AEC Associates Architectural CAD Services includes designing various types of buildings for their clients, for which they employ professionals having experience of designing certain architectural disciplines. Designing a primary school building can be a very challenging job for Architectural CAD Services as it involves dealing with several aspects including physical, mental and emotional well being of small children. We discussed in our previous post about taking care of the accessibility issue to make a primary school building useful and safe for even the specially abled students and teachers. The discussion is continued here. Following are some more design elements to be considered by the designers.
Making a school building functionally efficient is important no doubt, but Architectural CAD services just cannot undermine the importance of its physical appearance either. An attractive school building that is consistent with the design and context of the neighborhood, succeeds in building a sense of pride and belonging among the students, teachers, and in fact the entire community.
The façade of the building should be visually pleasing and should reflect the values of the community; while the interior spaces should be comfortable and welcoming, and be able to provide an environment that enhances the learning process.
- Cost effective
Cost plays an important role in making a public school building viable. The budgets for Architectural CAD services for such buildings are usually limited, but that doesn’t mean that there should be any compromise with the quality of education to be imparted here. It really becomes essential to balance the initial design and construction costs with the operating and maintenance cost to make it work. A life-cycle cost analysis can certainly help the cause. Using recyclable and recycled materials also helps making the project cost effective.
Primary schools play a major role in transforming today’s children into the responsible citizens of the future. Architectural CAD services must consider several design elements to provide a constructive learning environment to the students in their schools. We shall continue discussing more design elements for designing a primary school building in our next post.
