In a sample scenario, you have designed masses to explore a conceptual design for a building. (See Examples of Conceptual Design Analysis.) You want to analyze the most cost-effective or profitable mix of uses for each floor of the building.
To perform this analysis, you must do the following:
- Assign a usage to each mass floor.
- Calculate the area of each mass floor.
- Calculate the percentage of floor space devoted to each usage.
- Use this information to determine the best mix of uses for the design.
