This unit builds upon the practice and industry knowledge gained in KDA712 Professional Studies. The relationships between design, performance, and economics are considered in detail, through an exploration of a local development scenario. Both design and development strategies are examined in the specific context of the architect's legal and moral responsibility to their client, the profession and broader society. The economics associated with construction cost, project viability for sale or lease, as well as the design and documentation service and associated fees, are explored in detail.
A range of documentation issues are considered from the perspective of 'suitability for purpose', with the broader consideration of overall project viability remaining the primary focus.
