Designers and Design Process

Latest trend in designing a physical environment has aimed at customer satisfaction, well-being, and increase work efficiency and productivity; prevent accidents, injuries and falls. Keen insight into design issues have been used by architects, interior designers, engineers (electrical, sanitation, HVAC etc) who have experience incorporating energy features into their building designs. facility managers, and others in the planning, design, and construction of commercial buildings. Designing often necessitates considering the aesthetic, functional, economic and sociopolitical dimensions of both the design object and design process.

Critical thinking is necessary to develop an appropriate solution to the design problem; the pool of information will rarely offer a precise fit with a client's unique situation and therefore research that is specific to the project's objectives is almost always required.

Designing methodology may involve considerable research, thought, modeling, interactive adjustment, and re-design; reviewing existing research literature to select significant findings and recommendations; matching referenced findings with data gathered from site visits, surveys results, subject matter experts; predicating the outcomes of design decisions; tracking the positive outcomes for design implementation.

This approach differs from the traditional design process, as the design team examines the integration of all building components and systems and determines how they best work together to save energy and reduce environmental impact. The quality of the design team will largely determine the success of a building project.
