Important aspects in the development of any construction

Introduction Designing, planning and constructions are important aspects in the development of any building, highways, airports, dams and railroads. Therefore, it is significant to first of all, clearly design, plan and construct what needs to be achieved and accomplished and then start working on the construction. If the designing and planning phase are not managed appropriately, then it could significantly hurt and damage the outcomes of the project. Moreover, such situations could also increase the cost, outcome and time of the project (Chan, Scott, & Chan, 2004). This has been one of the reasons why the project managers emphasize a lot on the initial designing and planning stage before moving to the actual construction phase of the project.
This report presents the case of a client that owns a two-storey building. The client wants to increase the available area of the building and therefore, he wants to add three more storeys to the same building. For this purpose, this report presents the conceptual design of adding three more storeys to the building. At the time of planning, designing and construction, there are some considerations that have been kept in mind. For instance, one of the major considerations is that the site is suited in open countryside and as a result, there will be high wind as well with an approximate speed of 1 kN/m2. Moreover, ground conditions have an important role in the construction and it is significant to understand the conditions. The ground level conditions therefore, are also analyzed in the report before presenting the conceptual design. This report presents the framing details, floor details, connection details, and foundation details for the construction of this building.
