Suggestion and proposal
I decide our side to be a recreational area with an area of
50m x 70m (3500m2) inside a residential area.
Throughout the analysis of our site, I explored that this
area is lacking of more recreational area for residents. There is
an area of 9821m2 residential park with 1 football field and 3
tennis court but there isn’t provide any gymnasium and a
swimming pool. If residents of this area want to go gymnasium
or swimming pool they will take about 16 min for 8.3 km
journey to the nearest gymnasium and 21 min for 13.2 km. This
will waste a lot of time and money.
Apart from that, a restaurant so as people can have their
meals after exercise. There is a garden adjoin the badminton
stadium, gymnasium and restaurant.
In addition, there are 65 parking spaces provided for the
visitors surrounding the building so as people no need to park
their vehicles opposite the site and walk through 2 triple lane
roads or even facing lacking parking space problem.
There is an advertising sign on the top of the building. The
building is building in front a T-junction and this will be seen by
the drivers that using these roads.

After done our analysis of the area, I decide to build a
recreation building for the site.
According to the analysis of the site, there is commercial
area opposite the residential area and also 2 parks with a football
field and 3 tennis court. The only thing that is lacking in the site
is recreation area such as gymnasium and swimming pool.
Resident need to waste lot of their time and money to
gymnasium and swimming pool.
There isn’t any available parking space surrounding the
site except opposite of it. But visitors need to walk through 2
triple lane roads from the commercial area and it is very
dangerous way to pass the roads especially 2 triple lane roads.
i. Lack of recreational area: Residents need a nearly
gymnasium and swimming pool to exercise and relax
ii. Lack of parking space: Residents can park their vehicles
in the parking space provided which are located beside the
iii. Great spot to develop a sport center: Residents can go to
restaurant opposite the site to recover or the mini market to
buy daily supplies

1. Provide entertainment to the residents as there is no
gymnasium and swimming pool around this residential
2. Provide a healthier lifestyle for residents
3. There is an advertising sign on the top of the building to
introduce to the consumers about their products and gain
4. Resident come to the site and spend will increase the
economic growth of the site
7. Page | 5
1. This site will become a busy corner.
2. During public holiday, there will be a lot of people
coming to gym and swimming and 65 parking spaces
provided are totally not enough parking spaces at all for
a large amount of people. People will need to park at
commercial area which is located opposite of our site.
3. If the building is built and it will cause visual pollution ,
sound pollution and light pollution.

Project management task
Type of professioninvolvein this project
3. Quantity surveyor
4. Landscape architect
5. Civil and structural engineer
6. Mechanical and electrical engineer
18. Page | 16
Architect need to meet the client to discuss the concept
and design of the building and consult with other professionals.
He or she will leading a group of professionals such as
engineers, suppliers and etc. Architect needs to consider the
building and safety regulations, local planning regulations and
restrictions. Architect also advises the client on the project.
Architect produce detailed drawing and use computer-aided
design (CAD) to test feasibility of the building. He or she will
present feasibility reports and design proposals to clients
Architect need to keep within the budget that given by the client
and the deadline.
Architect will draw up tender document for contractors.
They will visit the site and meeting to ensure the project is
running on time and also the budget throughout the project and
they need to solve any problems that occur during construction.
Contractor are responsible for overseeing construction on
the building. Contractor will work with architect to ensure the
project is implemented as planned and solve any issues during
constructions with architect. Contractor also gathers and
evaluate bids of the site and also from the sub-contractors.
Contractors must complete the project in daily to ensure that the
construction is complete in time and correct manner. They
coordinate specialty contractors and also provide skilled labour.
In addition, contractor also responsible for obtaining material.
19. Page | 17
Quantity surveyor manage and control contract and cost
within construction project. They need to undertake the cost
analysis for repair and maintenance project work. Quantity
surveyor will use plans that drawn by architects to work out the
cost of constructing buildings and do a brief outline
specifications. They also prepare tender and contract documents.
As the development proceeds through many stages of design
phrase, the cost is always compared to the original construction
budget that was established at the feasibility stage. Quantity
surveyor prepare insurance replacement to estimate for building.
Apart from that, they need to identify, analysis and
develop responses to commercial risk. Lastly, they have to value
the completed work and arrange the payments.
Landscape architect need to research including urban
regeneration schemes, pedestrian schemes, road or retail
schemes, and maintaining the character of sites of natural beauty
before construction. He or she also need to meet the clients and
establish general landscape requirement with them. Beside that,
landscape architect need to match the client's wishes with your
knowledge of what will work best. Landscape architect need to
conduct preliminary studies of the site such as contours, soil,
ecology, buildings of the site.
They also carry out environment impact assessment. They
accurately preparing and presenting detailed plans and working
drawings, including applications, construction details and
specifications for the project using computer-aided design
(CAD) packages or similar design software . They also will
contact and coordinate manufacturers and suppliers.

Civil & structural engineer
Civil & structural engineer deal with the analysis and
design of structures that support loads. They undertake technical
and feasibility studies. They are responsible to design and plan
the hydraulic system and structure. They also advise architect
and client by using the most efficient method to provide in the
building. Apart from that, they prepare design calculations and
material specifications. They use software to calculate the load
and grade requirements, water flow rates, and also the material
stress factors. Before construction, they need to visit the site to
investigate and determine the suitability of the earth. Structural
engineer often take responsible in the organisation and delivery
of materials and equipment.
Electrical & mechanical engineer
Electrical & mechanical engineer carry out cost-effective
equipment modifications to ensure the safety of the building.
They develop, test and evaluate the design before the building is
used. They also discuss with the supplier, architect, contractor
and solve complex problems. They will use CAD to turn
research idea into technical plan before construction . After
construction, they need to take the responsible on maintenance
about 2-3 years.
Supplier is responsible to supply material to the site. They
also need to ensure the quality and quantity of the material so as
the project goes smoothly. Supplier need to transport the
material to the site in time to make sure the project is done in
time. They sometimes also recognized as subcontractor because
of their large contributions to the project.
