Programming

Programming is the opportunity to identify all of the physical and organizational issues to be solved in the design phase of a project. PDA acts as the initiator of ideas, providing you with creative alternatives to the issues presented. During programming we define the size, location, movement patterns and a basic configuration of the facility with attention paid to overall project costs.

The process includes:

  • Establishing a project schedule and budget
  • Gathering information such as existing conditions, furniture inventories, and staff, patients and families’ needs
  • Understanding the organization and their workflow processes
  • Identifying department representatives and conducting interviews
  • Developing a written space program with the needs relevant to each user group
