Today is the time of the modern age where we all set our priorities, complemented by our ambition to fulfill the same. Such demands have become strong by many people who work towards achieving their goal and one of the main aims that most of the people have is having one owner’s home.
Having a home is a big necessity as well as a luxury in today’s time. It falls in the category of what Indians rightly call “ roti, kapda aur makaan”. But what is kind of house does one look for. Well, it all depends on the individual, his needs, and his budget. All three work in sync to determine the final yield of a housing project. While it is certainly not as easy as black and white, it is also not a grey area. If there is one factor that will play a constant role in all kinds of works, projects, and the client’s need and deal is the time factor. Time is ought to be given to realize the potential of one space to turn into an envisioned reality.
By medium size projects, it means that there are still many building projects that are done less than bigger scale but above the lower scale projects whereas by individual projects, it means when a person takes the responsibility to undertake the renovation of his or her house or any other structure. There could be a lot of gaps in the working system in the medium projects for which he wishes to extend his technical expertise of Architectural Design, Building Information Modelling, Project Management, and Earned Value Management.
In the following paragraphs, we will be discussing the different architectural solutions to an individual, a company, an organization, or an institution that can use the services provided by architecture in Gurgaon:
Many firms will always be there to assist when it comes to designing all kinds of spaces. Generally, people are hesitant to approach architectural firms when the space is small but the need to transform the space into an exemplary one. They follow the philosophy of ‘form, follow, function’ by which they design catering to their client’s needs and demands without any compromise. Even at the smallest level, they are ever ready to deal with every aspect of the complexity of designing, construction, and architecture.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a process that involves a process of “generating, storing, managing, exchanging, and sharing building information in a reusable and interoperable manner” by using software that aids in building’s design, construction, and maintenance. According to architects, “BIM is not a technology, it is an environment. BIM is an environment where collaborators or different teams use a single software system to create, review, share and maintain the entire project. BIM allows better collaboration and communication between the clients and all the teams involved in the project.” BIM is a digital version of the blueprints that are designed by the architects in Gurgaon for their projects. It is skillful work that is performed by the various professionals formulating the whole structure or area along with the dimensions that are designed very precisely. It is pre-planning to enable the architects, professionals, and the client to understand how the structure will look like in its final stage where every detail about the building is shared. The client is also at an advantage to share his or her opinion on the same singular software from where all the other concerning numerous firms will be updated about the changes demanded by a client. Proper pre-planning can lead to a successful project with risks being foreseen and mitigated.
Completing the construction work is most of the time a challenge in India’s scenario where the construction process goes beyond the date and the construction cost often goes beyond the budget wherein the end the client loses patience and at times confidence too in the construction process.
The top architecture firms in Gurgaon ensures the project control of the work at every stage of the building process by tracking the performance against the approved and agreed plans by compiling the data of every stage, analyzing the whole construction process, and constructively influencing the time and cost outcomes of the project through the effective communication of information.
Earned Value Management (EVM)
EVM is the extension of the previous module of Project Management where it involves a fully integrated cost and schedule control system for the evaluation of the whole progress and the current status of the work. If there is any lapse on the schedule or exceeding budget expenses, EVM helps measure the same.
Some benefits are gained from adopting the EVM approach such as Verifiable Status Report, Trend Analysis, Decision Accountability, Current Status, Clear Objectives, Alternate Approaches, Visibility in Results.
Now presenting the process by which we work through our design phase. This is one of the most important stages because it is this stage that requires a lot of maneuvering of demands of the client and the skills of the architect together. There is a lot of thought process that is put behind every design and away is always worked out to implement the same.
There are multiple stages through which the designing process goes through before the outcome which will be discussed below to understand the detailed introspection that is required at every stage of designing
The Discussion Phase
This is the first phrase that comes up between the architect’s team and the client. It is like a formal conversation grabbing insights on what each side has to say. On one hand, the client states his or her requirement of the project, the location where a structure would be made, and lastly a broad idea of what the client desire to do with the design of the building or structure or space.
The Conceptual Stage – Creation
After finalizing to go ahead with the project and some rudimentary thoughts on the kind of designs preferred by the client, a very basic idea of design is formed which more or less serves as the foundation which can be improvised later as needed.
The Conceptual Stage – Discussion
At this stage, we start working on the design templates that we show to our clients. We provide some choices of design that are distinct numerous firms will, yet we are cautious that we do not end up over-showing too many designs. The client should not feel perplexed by seeing numerous designs.
Forming the Concept
This is the phase where the actual detailing starts with the design. It becomes more intricate as detailing is undertaken to the core of the planning. The studio prepares a 3D model of a building that encompasses all the preliminary building elements which throw light on the vision of the building that will be structured, hence making the idea of the building formation comprehensive to the client as well.
Formulating the Elevation of the Building
In this phase, the elevation of the building is discussed and designed according to the needs of the client. There are endless options for the element of elevation for the building and the client is taken through those options to choose the facade for each horizontal side of the building. They work with different kinds of architecture ensuring that the interiors and exteriors of the building complement each other.
Detailed Architectural 3D Model
Finally at this step, though not the end of the design process, a detailed architecture 3D model is formulated and all the necessary layouts, elevations, and sections are incorporated in the 3D model for better precision and details to work upon when it comes to the implementation phase.
Formulating Detailed Structural 3D Model
At this step, there is a strong collaboration between the top architects in Gurgaon and the structural engineers who work in sync when it comes to rendering structural 3D models where elements such as column beams, foundation, framing details are created with a lot of planning and accuracy. The objective of the detailed structural 3D model is to ensure that the design is not hundred by the structural faults of the building.
From the above approaches that are adopted by the multinational architecture firms, it is quite clear that they value professional accountability and efficiency which they implement in medium and individual projects. The visible advantage of implementing these modules is that proper planning along with updated technology in the work process can also be implemented in medium and individual-scale projects as well without any compromise in the quality and hence delivering the best that they deserve irrespective of the level and budget of the project.
