Stages of design


FEASIBILTYANALYSIS

Feasibility analysis is the first stage of the design process. Owing to it, real options of using the existing arrangement of the premises are determined or the scope of work necessary to carry out is identified so that – in technical and practical terms – it can be adapted to the needs of the veterinary, dental, medical office, etc.
Carrying out the feasibility analysis is a process requiring professional knowledge and perceptiveness, because it does not follow only the established check list. Each time, specific investor requirements should be taken into account, especially if they are unusual and require designing the premises in a way that differs from the most commonly used principles.

CONCEPTUAL DESIGN

The conceptual design is the most general technical sketch. It does not include detailed information about a specific arrangement, but it is a comprehensive development of the functional concept of the space of the future office. This concept is based on design assumptions defined by the investor and formulated in a technical manner by the architect, as well as a thorough feasibility analysis that already allows some of the assumptions to be positively or negatively verified.

ARCHITECTURAL AND BUILDING DESIGN

The architectural and building design is a special type of document that is created when it is necessary to build a new facility. This is a procedure that provides the investor with greater freedom than in the case of adaptation of the existing property, although also in this case obtaining the maximum ergonomics of the building requires adjusting its design to the requirements of the local development plan, as well as the specificity of the building plot. These factors determine the need to prepare a design of a different nature than in the case of the adaptation of the premises.

INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECT

The interior design, due to the role it plays in ensuring the comfort and ergonomics of the facility, is the subject of very detailed planning. The interior design project determines not only the look of the dental surgery or the doctor’s office, but also the extent to which this facility can be considered as ergonomic. An important factor in the creation of this type of project is also the ability to adapt it to the budget constraints set by the investor – in many cases, the purpose of the interior design project is to indicate the economically optimal finish that will meet the highest functional standards.

DETAILED DESIGN

The detailed design is a form of presentation necessary to carry out the works. It is a highly formalized, fully standardized form of the design, on the basis of which cost estimates are created and building works are performed. The detailed design is also the basis for stating the conformity of the adaptations made to the design prepared by the design studio: this can not be done in relation to even the most realistic visualization, let alone the conceptual design. The detailed design is characterized by maximum detailedness and complexity – it describes each element of the interior finish and equipment, and contains technical information valuable for the renovation team, which must execute it.

WORKPLACE LIGHTING DESIGN

Lighting in doctor’s offices and dental surgeries is one of the factors that determine functionality. The description of lighting conditions is included in dedicated standards, while they leave the investors and installers some freedom as to the choice of the type of light sources or their nature and method of turning them on, and these factors largely affect the ergonomics of the office.

DESIGNS OF FIXED GUARDS

Designs of fixed guards are special documents that are prepared to ensure safety and compliance with regulations in surgeries and laboratories in which imaging equipment is set. Ionizing radiation, due to its harmfulness, must exert its effect only in the limited space possible, and fixed guards are to protect the remaining places. Characteristics of fixed guards is included in the regulations of the Sanitary Inspectorate and the so-called Atomic law, as well as selected standards that impose quite high technical requirements. It is often the problem to implement the guards in the design in such a way that they do not violate the concept of artistic arrangement.

DESIGN OF TECHNOLOGICAL INSTALLATIONS

Medical offices must meet not only strict hygienic and aesthetic standards, but above all, in order to be practical, they must be equipped with all necessary technological installations. Their failure-free operation and full safety depend on the correct preparation of the design. Planning the route of ventilation, air-conditioning, energy and ICT networks, electrical alarms and technical installations specific to medical offices, e.g. compressors, guarantees the possibility of efficient operation and, if necessary, also of installation repairs.

VISUAL IDENTITY DESIGN

The visual identity design includes the preparation of a coherent image concept. It can be prepared for newly built, adapted buildings, and the existing ones, also if the arrangement of the interior of the medical office does not change. The aim of the design is to create a coherent image of the office and to develop aesthetic additional elements – from stationery, business cards, to logotypes and graphic templates of websites.

CONSULTING SERVICES

Talking to an expert, showing them your doubts and finding possible solutions is the first step on the way to improving the way the medical office works. Consulting services may concern the design of offices, as well as visual identity designs or purely technical changes, for example in the field of modernization of an ICT system or installation of imaging diagnostics equipment.
