OBJECTIVE 1.1 Determine location of building and site improvements based on site analysis (A/E) Based on views, wind, topography, adjacencies, program, planning concepts, and other factors, you will need to be able to locate a new built project on its site. This can include the orientation of one building, the arrangement of multiple buildings, or the configuration of site improvements. OBJECTIVE 1.2 Determine sustainable principles to apply to design (A/E) An architect must use sun, wind, temperature, precipitation, and other climatic data to select building orientation and shape, building envelope design, and active and/or passive building systems. Sustainable principles also include considering recycled content and identifying opportunities to minimize waste when selecting building materials. OBJECTIVE 1.3 Determine impact of neighborhood context on the project design (U/A) You will need to consider the character of a site’s neighborhood, including proximity to various modes of transit, nearby amenities, the scale of adjacent buildings, surrounding façade materials, historic precedent, and historic preservation requirements. Understanding how these impact a project is necessary OBJECTIVE 2.1 Apply zoning and environmental regulations to site and building design (U/A) It is important to understand the regulations that govern the outside of a building, including standard and accessible parking requirements, allowable building size based on FAR, site coverage, and property line setbacks. OBJECTIVE 2.2 Apply building codes to building design (U/A) It is also important to assess the building code requirements that impact a project. This includes building height and area limits, maximum occupant load, fire separation, required egress, and accessibility. Architects must be able to compile this information into a code analysis and incorporate it into the design. OBJECTIVE 2.3 Integrate multiple codes to a project design (A/E) Multiple codes may govern a project, depending on the jurisdiction, funding stream, or other factors. You will need to understand the use of related codes, like energy, mechanical, and universal design; determine how multiple codes are used together; and discern which code governs when a conflict arises. OBJECTIVE 3.1 Determine mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems (A/E) You will need to evaluate mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, and select the appropriate system for a building based on function, cost, size, availability, programmatic needs, or other factors. OBJECTIVE 3.2 Determine structural systems (A/E) You will need to evaluate different structural systems and select the appropriate system and layout for a building based on its size, function, and structural loads. System cost and availability must also be considered. OBJECTIVE 3.3 Determine special systems such as acoustics, communications, lighting, security, conveying, and fire suppression (A/E) You will need to evaluate specialty systems and select the appropriate systems for a building based on the building type, function, and programmatic requirements. OBJECTIVE 3.4 Determine materials and assemblies to meet programmatic, budgetary, and regulatory requirements (A/E) You will need to select a building’s envelope system, interior materials, and other assemblies based on cost, availability, program requirements, environmental conditions, or other factors. OBJECTIVE 4.1 Determine building configuration (A/E ) As an architect, you will need to resolve the building’s configuration based on program and code requirements, selected MEP and structural systems, site conditions, historic precedent, and principles of design logic. OBJECTIVE 4.2 Integrate building systems in the project design (A/E) Within this division is the beginning of systems coordination. You must consider how the selected systems fit together, both spatially and functionally, and how they are coordinated into the architectural design. OBJECTIVE 4.3 Integrate program requirements into a project design (A/E) Architects must be able to reconcile the relationships between various program requirements, evaluate the program’s impact on cost and building systems, and assess how the program is affected by environmental factors. OBJECTIVE 4.4 Integrate environmental and contextual conditions in the project design (A/E) You will need to incorporate various design strategies, including those assessed in Section 1, into the project. This may include elements like view corridors, shading elements, building materials, and landscape design. OBJECTIVE 5.1 Evaluate design alternatives based on the program (A/E) The first design is not necessarily the best, so analyzing design alternatives against the program requirements, project goals, and budget, as well as considering the various factors that affect costs is a critical part of the project. OBJECTIVE 5.2 Perform cost evaluation (A/E) It is important for you to evaluate various methods of estimating project costs, including those based on program type, square footage, or systems/assemblies. You must also be able to adjust the cost estimate as the design develops and reconcile the estimate with the project budget. OBJECTIVE 5.3 Evaluate cost considerations during the design process (A/E) Architects need to consider client priorities and life cycle costs when selecting materials and systems, and they must evaluate the cost effectiveness of various design decisions
