Creating a building that is functional and that you enjoy spending time in requires you to look at so much more than the elements that make it beautiful. While most of us do fall for a home because of the layout and the welcoming paint on the walls that greets us as we come home from work, it’s not always what makes a house a home.
The same goes for a commercial building. You could have the most beautiful building in the world, but if you didn’t have the HVAC system to manage temperature, no electrical wiring to see in the dark, and no plumbing to use the restroom or get a drink of water, chances are you wouldn’t be drawn to the building quite as much.
In today’s blog post, the team at Drafter Max is going to cover a few of the applications and systems that need to be worked into the design of your building. Sure, they’re not nearly as fun as picking out a stain color — but you’ll be so incredibly thankful to have these various systems installed in the long run.
As we mentioned earlier, your HVAC system ensures that you are cool when it’s at an all-time high outdoors and that you’re warm when icicles are forming outdoors. Your HVAC system also increases the quality of air in your space.
This particular system is made up of the central air unit, furnace, thermostat, and ducts throughout the house that allows for this air to travel throughout the property.
All of us have grown up in homes that had electricity, so it’s become something that we’ve simply taken for granted. When designing a building, you are absolutely going to want to consider the type of electrical power that you need. In regards to the design, figuring out the wiring to the various places that you’d like to have outlets is one thing, but there are still various ways that your electrical wiring will need to be incorporated into the draft of your building.
Another significant system within every building is the plumbing. In regards to cost, plumbing is one of the most expensive systems that you’ll have to invest in, and it really doesn’t provide you with very much flexibility. With that being said, working with a professional drafter on your building to figure plumbing out is a great idea. Not only will this provide you with some guidance on what makes the most sense for your space, but it can save you some serious time and money in the long run of a building design and project.
