Essential to successful design of any commercial development is to understand the goals and requirements of each proposed project. Whether office, factory, retail or institutional building, the architect’s design must respond to functional needs of both staff and public occupants. Budgets and schedules must be met and the building design must respect these realities. The approval process for commercial development tends to be complex and can vary enormously from one project to another. A broad range of inter-related code requirements must be resolved. The architect must apply utmost sensitivity and experience to make difficult legal processes proceed with efficiency.
Not only must all of the practical realities be work out. The artistry of the design concept must not be lost in doing so. Only then can a commercial building design be considered a success.
