Institutional projects require an intensity whereby the designer working with the client’s focus team is able to drill down to the essential aspects and priorities that will inform the design and bring about solutions that meet or exceed expectations. The design of these projects is highly dependent on functional requirements and strategies for efficiency and effectiveness. In the health care field this includes measures for and sensitivity of infection control.

Recreational projects require strength in functional programming and space planning where the designer brings the assembly of spaces into a meaningful and functional whole. Public safety and security, hygiene and spatial relationships to achieve rational movement of the public through the facility are design factors that must be integral to the design.
