Commercial Design Tips

by Kevin and Sharon Kennedy 11/06/2019

Design is a way of life, a point of view. It involves a complex mixture of visual communication: talent, creative ability, manual skill, and technical knowledge. Beauty and economics, technology, and psychology are intrinsically related to the process. Great design is in total harmony, and there is no truer designer than Nature – if you look at a branch or a leaf, it's perfectly complex and beautiful. Successful designs are not the achievement of perfection, but the minimization and accommodation of imperfection.

Commercial Building Design Tips

Nature's design is the gold standard against which our built environments should be measured. On its own, nature has a finely tuned balance, but problems occur for both people and the environment when introducing synthetic or human-made materials. The essential balance is lost. Ecological, sustainable building means not just sustaining our ecosystems, but human health as well. Mind, body, and soul are affected in myriad ways by a home. And it is clear that the once finely-tuned relationship between humankind and nature is out of balance.

A construction project has specific purposes in mind. This purpose is why the plan and design of a residential and commercial buildings is substantially different. What are the commercial building design considerations? Let's explore some of them here:

Productivity: An organized working environment is dependent on the exterior and interior design of the building. This balance must be kept in mind while creating the layout. For example, an office with adequate natural lighting, proper acoustic, adequate ventilation, temperature control, and separate working space creates the right setting. Pay attention to the flow: when employees must push past each other to complete a task, or dance around each other to reach equipment, your flow is inefficient. A commercial design professional knows how to create for productive movement.

Cost-effectiveness: These structures need to be cost-effective, i.e., the building performance requires optimization. To have quality long-term operations and less maintenance work it is necessary to opt for the best possible design now. That means utilizing sustainable building materials, cutting edge environmental controls, and energy-efficient power supplies. 

Safety and Security: Preparation for the worst is always a wise idea. Design entrances in such a way that they are safe from any external disturbance; choose methods to screen individuals and packages entering the building; install blast resistance and perimeter barriers; select fire-resistant materials for commercial interior design. 

It is quite a tough task to create a design with all these specifications in mind. This difficulty is the reason you need to opt for a professional to design your commercial space.
