Apr 14, 2015 -- Buildings designed by architectural designers have a perceived value added factor as they are capable of producing distinctive and innovative design solutions. A lot of architects and architectural designers insist to have a substantial role in the management of the project, as they are interested to know whether their designs are faithfully followed by the builder and subcontractors – or not. They have successfully marked this decade, by a new era of BIM construction in Middle East, in-fact across the globe, as a series of Mega projects are announced.
Design for Ambitious £67BILLION KING Abdullah Economic City Project in Saudi Arabia Unveiled – sources said. One of the projects that stand out across a spate of new projects is the £67 billion megacity, which will rise from the desert, 60 miles away from Jeddah. The megacity - spread across 70 square miles land area, is a little larger than Washington DC. The city is named as KING Abdullah Economic city – KAEC (pronounced as cake), after the late king Abdullah who had envisioned this city. The desert is right now dotted with an array of cranes and machines, as foundation and construction work has started off in full swing. It is reported that nearly 15 percent work is done. Hopes are high, that the city will help diversify the country, and this metropolis will be home to two million residents.
Touted as the most ambitious project, KAEC aspires to house one of the largest ports of the world, with quick and automated offloading and customs. With this port the city will connect Riyadh to the world. The city will also become a popular destination with tourists and will be connected to the two Holy cities Mecca and Medina on a high speed train network.
The KING Abdullah Economic city project aims to include residential areas, commercial areas and public facilities including industrial complex, ports, a financial island, and beach facilities. The KAEC proposes to become a model city with great roadways, transport links, and great network of healthcare, education, housing and infrastructure. And all this was brought to life with help of Architectural designers.
The question for one and all is, what type of Architectural Designer will you choose and how?
How much money you want to spend; Yes COST is the obvious reason where the choice of an architectural designer will probably come down to. But it can prove to be really risky to shift focus in the design phase. You choose to go with a less experienced or qualified designer and it may cost you a fortune. A really creative architectural designer is the one who, through the skills, is able to accommodate ways to make your budget and ideas fit each other.
Select a designer you are confident about, who understands:
- Building Code needs
- Good materials and construction methods required to avoid issues such as leaky buildings
- Advice you on the type of design and materials most suited for your project and the site you have chosen
- It is strongly recommended that you take assistance from architectural design professionals with extensive experience of working on designing and detailing of buildings. They should be well equipped to offer you appropriate design, a detailed contract and navigate you through the consent process.
- Selecting licensed practitioner comes with an assurance that the architect portrays the skills, knowledge and experience to meet government-backed national standards.
- Internet also can be really helpful to you in getting a list of architects and design firms who have showcased their designs. Upon shortlisting the architects and designers, find out someone who has worked with them – and look out how they were like to work with.
- Most importantly it is necessary for you to find out someone you can communicate your ideas with and they understand it as well.
- Avoid designers who appear more interested in showcasing the latest design fad than designing to your needs.
Most of the architects and designers offer a free first meeting; where you can discuss the basics of the project including – your budget, type of building you are looking for, size of the building, and the features that you would want to include in the construction.
