The elemental PPD serves as a checklist for everyone that reviews and comments on the project. Having a manual or database in an elemental format helps you perform economic analysis early in the design stage and at reasonable cost. Realistic elemental budget and design program estimates can be prepared from historical and published elemental cost data, using cost modelling techniques outlined in the text “Project Budgeting for Buildings” that is listed in the UNIFORMAT references 9.

Newton Centre, MA Tel.: This is possible because baseline systems have been well defined and estimated in the Schematic Design Phase and changes can still be made to lower the project life cycle cost without incurring major design costs.

It is more comprehensive than the original, particularly with respect to the mechanical and sitework elements. The classification serves as a consistent reference for analysis, evaluation, and monitoring during the feasibility, planning, and design stages of buildings.

Life Cycle costing can now be effectively initiated during the Design Development Phase to evaluate alternatives. ASTM E Active view current version of standard.

As a result of improved team communications and coordination, the project manager can have more time to address other important issues, and manage the project to a successful completion with less effort than normally required. The project benefits from their expertise at a time when design decisions are not frozen and suggestions can be seriously considered in a constructive exchange of views, without the confrontation that would occur if they were proposed in the final stages of design.


This approach provides the technical and cost information necessary to initiate life cycle costing, energy analysis, and value engineering studies during the initial phase of the design process, i. It facilitates the description of the scope of the project for the client in a clear, concise, and logical sequence; it provides the basis for the preparation of more detailed elemental estimates during the early concept and preliminary design phases, and it enhances communications among designers and other building professionals by providing a clear statement of the designer’s intent.

There is a need in North America to improve communications and coordination during the design of buildings. This means fewer subsequent changes and a ast, efficient building design management process. These can change as design progresses, but within the total budget established.

American Institute of Architects. As a result of the above, communications and coordination amongst the client, project manager and designers can be improved significantly, and the design process managed more efficiently. Building design management team members at this time are receptive e157 alternatives that provide better value because design changes can be made at little or no cost, and potential savings are greater than at the following design development phase.

The cost manager can prepare more detailed Schematic Phase estimates for all disciplines with a higher degree of accuracy than usual, based on the PPD provided by each consultant; if the project is within budget, there should be no major concern as to the final project cost other than for major scope changes initiated by the client and for which additional funding should be provided.

Furthermore, it allows input, at the schematic phase, from: Elements usually perform a given function, regardless of the design specification, construction method, or ashm used. National Institute of Standards and Technology. Earlier, more productive VE workshops can now be held at completion of the Schematic Design Phase in lieu of the Design Development Phase because suitable project descriptions and estimates are available for all disciplines.

Each discipline must think through the project as the Schematic Phase progresses, select baseline concepts and construction systems that are judged most appropriate, and propose alternatives. The partition density the ratio of the quantity of partitions per square foot GFA is 1.

Redesigning can be minimized, adding to the profitability for designers, and creating a good environment that e1557 teamwork.

The classification is the common thread linking activities and participants in a building project from initial planning through operations, maintenance, and disposal. To implement UNIFORMAT II effectively for building design management, written directives or guidelines must be issued to each team member; a briefing session for the team should be held prior to the start of design to ensure that everyone clearly understands the procedures to be followed and the resulting benefits for all participants.

Charette, Robert and Anik Shooner The author is Robert P. Each design discipline is obliged to think through the project during the Schematic Phase and propose tentative baseline solutions as well as alternatives for the concept and building systems that meet design program requirements.

From these distributions, build up probability distributions of total project costs to establish acceptable project contingencies or to serve as inputs to an economic analysis. Information is also more easily understood by clients and others who do not have a technical background. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
