11).What do you mean by accessibility in whole building design process??

Accessible: Pertains to building elements, heights and clearances implemented to address the specific needs of disabled people. 12).Explain the role of inception phase in facilities programming.?? 13).Explain NASF/GSF?? NASFareas that are assigned to a function GSFtotal area to the outside walls Building efficiency is the ratio of NASF to gross square feet (GSF), the total area including the NASF and tare areas. Building efficiency equals NASF/GSF 14).Explain Tare space in relevance to office building.?? A percentage for "tare" space is added to the total NASF. Tare space is the area needed for circulation, walls, mechanical, electrical and telephone equipment, wall thickness, and public toilets. 15).What is facility performance evaluation? -Facility performance evaluation (FPE) is an extension of what had been called "post-occupancy evaluation." FPE is a continuous process of systematically evaluating the performance and/or effectiveness of one or more aspects of buildings in relation to issues such as accessibility, aesthetics, cost-effectiveness, functionality, productivity, safety and security, and sustainability. -FPEs are generally intended to convey the characteristics of buildings that work well and best, and focus on the ones that should not be repeated in future designs of buildings. -Facility performance evaluators try to describe rather than manipulate a setting. -The data-collection for FPEs is usually done in actual settings rather than in the laboratory. 16).What are form and image goals with respect to a Hotel Program? 17).What are the risk factors in facility program? Refer qstn 57 (12 marks) 18).What do you understand by sustainability in whole building design concept? Sustainable: Pertains to environmental performance of building elements and strategies 19).Explain Integrated Team Process? Refr qstn 55 (12 mrks) 20).Mention the five fundamental principles of productive building designs?? There are five fundamental principles of productive building designs: Promote Health and Well-Being Indoor environments strongly affect human health. An effective environment should be designed to support and enhance the health and well-being of its occupants. Sustainable design principles help achieve this objective. Provide Comfortable Environments An environment designed and operated to provide the highest achievable levels of visual, acoustic, and thermal comforts for its occupants is the underpinning of worker effectiveness. Design for the Changing Workplace Providing spaces with flexibility, social support, and technology to promote new ways of working, learning and engaging in a number of activities is a cornerstone of change and innovation. Integrate Technological Tools

Effectively integrating technological tools and distribution networks required in today's environments to enable occupants to perform activities or their duties starts first and foremost with properly designed pathways and spaces. Assure Reliable Systems and Spaces Reliability is one of the greatest concerns for building occupantsit directly affects their safety, health, and comfort. Occupants must be able to rely on building systems, equipment, and tools that function consistently and are properly maintained.
