1

List 7 types of programming analyses

1. Reviewing technical analysis
2. Evaluate existing structures
3. Evaluate historic structures
4. Determine functional requirements
5. Create a Program
6. Create a budget
7. Create a schedule

2

Electromagnetic Distance Measurement (EDM)

Type of field measurement / survey using laser based instrument with onboard computer to measure distance, horizontal & vertical angles of laser beam to reflective prism target. High level of accuracy.

3

Reflectorless Electromagnetic Distance Measurement (REDM)

Type of field measuring / survey similar to EDM but relies on return signal bounced from object being measured. Less precise accuracy.

4

Laser Scanning

Type of field measuring / survey uses medium range pulsing laser beams that sweep over object or space to obtain 3D coordinates of points on surface being scanned. Plans, sections, elevations can be generated from the 3D image.

5

List 3 methods of field measuring

1. Electromagnetic distance measuring
2. Reflectorless electromagnetic distance measuring
3. Laser scanning

6

List 4 types of treatment approaches for historic structures from the most historically accurate to the least.

1. Preservation
2. Rehabilitation
3. Restoration
4. Reconstruction

7

Preservation

Attempts to retain all historic fabric thru conservation, maintenance & repair

8

Rehabilitation

Emphasizes retention & repair of historic materials but gives more latitude to replacement (property was most likely deteriorated before work began)

9

Restoration

Focuses on retention of materials from buildings most significant time in history. Permits removal of materials from other periods.

10

Reconstruction

Recreate non-surviving site with new materials, landscape, structure, etc.

11

List the 6 categories for treatment of historic masonry outlined by the NPS

1. Identify, retain, preserve
2. Protect & maintain
3. Repair
4. Replace (if a feature is too deteriorated to repair)
5. Remove existing features from other historic periods
6. Recreate missing features

12

What are the 5 steps in the programming process?

1. Establish Goals (client’s objectives)
2. Collect Facts (existing conditions & requirements for meeting client’s objectives)
3. Programming Concepts (abstract solutions for client’s problems)
4. Determine needs (balance clients needs with budget)
5. State problem (bridge between concept & design)

13

List the 4 elements of cost

1. Quantity
2. Quality
3. Budget
4. Time

14

List the 4 major problem statements that should be addressed during the 5th stage of programming

1. Form
2. Function
3. Economy
4. Time

15

What are 3 considerations for evaluating space needs when programming?

1. Number of people to be accommodated
2. Objects/equipment located in the space
3. Activity to take place

16

Continental seating

Continuous rows of seats accessed by two side aisles

17

Multiple aisle seating

Non-continuous rows of seating, accessed by intermediate and side aisles

18

What type of seating arrangement requires larger row to row seating?

Continental seating

19

Benchmarking

Establishing common standards for rooms, spaces, activities based on measurement of similar facilities

20

Individual area, not including circulation, mechanical rooms, stairs, elevators, etc.

Net or net assignable area

21

What are secondary spaces when determining net area?

Mechanical rooms, elevator shafts, stairs, circulation paths

Also referred to as non assignable area

22

How do you determine space needs?

# of people x area needed

23

How do you determine gross area?

gross area = net area / efficiency

Net + non assignable area adds up to equal gross area

24

What is efficiency?

A ratio of net area to gross area

Commonly ranges from 60%-80%

25

What two things is rentable area based on the sum of?

1. Occupant area (area used exclusively by tenant’s own business / function

2. Prorated share of common areas used by all tenants

26

What is the calculation for rentable area?

Rentable area = Gross area x LF

LF = load factor

27

What are two methods of measuring rentable area according to ANSI / BOMA Z65.1?

1. Legacy method
2. Single load factor method

28

Legacy method

Method to measure rentable area. Uses different load factors for each floor. Uses R/U ratio (rentable area / usable area) for each floor

29

Single load factor method

Method to measure rentable area. Uses single load factor for all floors. Uses R/O ratio (net fl area/usable area)

30

What are 3 types of adjacency needs to consider when creating bubble / stacking concept diagrams?

1. People
2. Products
3. Information
