Building construction services are key to all manner of building works and the church is no different. From the design period to the handover, different services are involved. These services are key and crucial to attaining the aim and goal of the project. Projections are usually met with the satisfaction of the different services being met while the work is under progress. Additionally, for the building to function well, some of key services must be in cooperate during the construction period (Hall & Greeno, 2015). The services involved in the design and construction period have for a long proved critical in meeting the needs of the building construction. The building services are critical in achieving the major objective of the projects. There are specific which will be associated with the certain projects. This is the same with the church construction, which will be the major focus in this paper. This paper will analyze different building services which need t be in cooperated in the construction of a church project. This paper will add details on the reasons which support the use if these services. Building and accommodating services are able to enhance the implementation of the projects. The church project under consideration as well will have key building services as well as accommodating services, which will enhance the meeting of different goals of the project. Design and construction period are critical when executing projects and they are able to accompany key services, which enhance project implementation (Tomioka & Kawai, 2012). The different services to any building must be able to conform to the laid rules and regulations. The National Construction Code and BCA are able to offer the guidelines and strategies on which these services will be provided (Australian Building Codes Board, 2016). This paper will analyze the need for these services and analyze them in accordance with the rules and regulations in Australian rules and regulations. Each regulation is able to define the different ways on which these services have to be delivered at different projects so that they meet the safety and health standards.
The church is under assembly classification of the building. This means that different people will be able to access the building. The classification means that design in both architectural and structural designs are able to depend on the building type. Architectural services are key for any project (Minkler, 2012). These are the first services, which are needed before the design, and construction of the project starts. The architectural services are able to outline the nature of the project and the final output of the project. These services are presented to the client to analyze the aesthetic factors of the building. The architectural services will be able to show the alignment of the church building and the final outlook of the church. This is a key factor for the design of the church to consider the output of the project (Allen & Iano, 2014). The architectural services will enhance the design team to have a clear understanding of the design boundaries and parameters for the design. The architectural services are critical in definition of the boundary and size of the church. The use of these services will define the aesthetic factors of the church and design like. Design team will use the architectural services output to design the different members of the church project. The new church location and boundaries, it size and design structure will be all defined in the architectural services. This makes the services important during the design period and therefore can be included as part of the design services to be offered. In addition, these services are critical during the construction period and they help to elaborate different ideas, which were presented before (Cowdery, 2007). The design team will rely on the architectural services to make key design designs (Australian Building Codes Board, 2016). This is because these services will guide them on the design looks of the church building. Different elements will be defined on the architectural services and there these will be key services to be included on this case study.
In addition, structural provisions must be met in accordance to part B1. This has to ensure that the structural elements are able to enhance the safety of the building. The buildings have to meet the elements to ensure that the buildings do not collapse (Australia. 1990). The structural service and provisions must be provided to ensure that the building meets the requirements to ensure the building is able to withstand the different needs. In addition, the structural elements are able to enhance the safety and risks against some key factors such as the fire resistance. Structural reliability must be met in the design and ensuring that the structural needs is met. This ensures that the services provided are able to ensure that the structural reliability and services are of high quality. Resistance to actions must be met in the process of provision of these structural services (Chudley & Greeno, 2013, Australian Building Codes Board, 2016). In addition, qualified design team must be able to meet the required standards and ensure that the structure meets the relevant needs. The services are able to include different services such as the masonry and concreting casting services. These must ensure that the building is able to meet the required standards in design stage.
Decoration services are other key services, which will be needed on the church project. The church decoration is essential to bring out the church message and aesthetic factor. The decoration of the church is usually different since they have to present a key message, which different people will have to associate with the church environment (Faber, 2016). The decoration in church environment is done to pass some key message to people and therefore the services are critical. The decoration team must present the decorations, which are associated with the church environment and bear the correct message to the people. The decoration services are therefore key to ensure the congregations are able to get the best message once the project is complete. The church decor services prove important due to the uniqueness of the decoration, which has to be carried out on the building (Mallory-Hill, Preiser & Watson, 2012). These services will align with the architectural services to ensure that the correct messages are placed on the designed location. In addition, these services are able to increase the aesthetic looks of the church. The decoration services will help people to define the church building. Outward decoration will be able to pass the message on the type of facility, which is on that location.
Drainage works and services will be key to ensure that different wastes and unwanted water wastes are directed in the proper direction. These services will define the location where these wastes will be directed such as the storm water from the roof location (Kotter, 2014). Additionally, these services will define the line location of the pipe to ensure that people do not interfere with its flow and damage (Australian Building Codes Board, 2016). Considering the kitchen and toilet locations within the church building, it is important to have a sewer line, which will connect with the main sewer or have a place where the sewage will be deposited. The storm water from the roof and the wastewater from the kitchen and bathroom need to be collected and directed to a location for either treatment or disposal. These services will ensure that the health of the environment is maintained at a high level and thus enhancing cleanness (Haddad, 2012). The line for the server need to be maintained out of the pathways and this is a decision, which the drainage team will make while providing the services. Additionally, these services have to be superior to ensure blockage does not happen. The services have to ensure foul smell does not move back to the building location and therefore proper design of the drainage system is needed.
The services will therefore be able ensure the comfortability of the people within the location is achieved with proper drainage services. The services will ensure that different wastes are able to move in a better line and disposal is maintained well. Therefore, these services will be essential at this environment and ensure that they enhance the environment (Building services handbook, 2001). Manholes will be enhanced to ensure inspection of the sewer line is enhance at different times to ensure blockages are solved at the right time. In cooperating these services will ensure that the cleanness of the church are is well maintained and thus sewage does not spill anyhow on the church location. Disposal pit will be necessary and these services will be able to provide such area considering wind flow and safety measures for the disposal. The Building Constructed Code is able to define that these services will be able to enhance the health and safety of the environment considering the smell and safety.
Termite risk management services must be provided on this project. This will ensure that the building is safe against the termite attack. The attacks are able to weakness the building stability and therefore they should be able to withstand these attacks. Part B1.4 is able to give the specification on when the services need to be provided and the stage at which they need to provided (Tri Harso Karyono, Vale & Vale, 2017). This clause is able to enhance the building stability at the different levels. Different structure components must be able to be safe against the termite attack. This will ensure that the elements are met and the level of termite management services is well provided. The services will enhance the durability of the structure and enhance the safety of the building. The termite management services are able to enhance the safety of the structure (Preiser, Hardy & Wilhelm, 2017). This gives the occupants confident that the building will stay for long and meet the design life. This will key services, which will be needed on the building to enhance it operation. In addition, these services will be able to reduce the cost factor of the buildings. The cost management will be enhanced and therefore management of the building.
Fire resistance services are also required on the section. Any building which people are required require strategies on the way people will be safer in terms of fire strategy (Curtin, 2002). These services will be able to provide an exit plan in case of fire in the building. According to part C of the NCC part one, Protection opening need to be provided on the buildings. This will enhance the proper mechanism to fight fire in case of it happening. Construction exits are always required on the building to enhance an exist plan (Australian Building Codes Board, 2016). Considering different access to people, a well planned exist plan with exit places need to be provided. This need to be provided on different sections to enhance the exit of the people. The section D of the NCC requires that the exit plan to enhance the exit of the people from the building (Washington & Mealiff, 2013). Escape plan has to enhance the people exit from the building under these conditions. Section D part D2 is able to offer the requirement for the services on exit to be provided. It requires exit parts to be provided on the building on different parts. This will enhance the people to leave the building when different incidents happen and enhance their safety. In addition, as part of building which the building has access to many people, different people must be enhanced to access the building. People with disability access must be provided with different access avenues to the building. This means a rump may be created to enhance their access where several staircase landings may be available in front of the church. Fire fighting to the building should also be included (Wilkinson, Remøy & Langston, 2014). These services have to be included to ensure control on the damage on the properties in the church building. Part E of the section 1 of the NCC is able to provide the provision under which these utilities and services to the buildings. The church requires a strategy on which the fire will be dealt with in case it happens. Fire fighting equipment need to be strategically located at different locations on the church to enhance the safety of the occupants.
Electric supply system services are key to ensure that the different electric connections are done to the standards. The electric service will key to ensure that different devices on the church location are connected. The operation of the church building will need services since the audibility of the church will be enhanced (Cremers, 2016). This will ensure operations of the church are well maintained. Part C2.13 of the NCC is able to offer the guidelines which will ensure that the services are well provided. The electric line near the church will be key area which the services can be retrieved from. In addition, the old church electric line can also be used to provide the electric services to the new building to enhance the lighting and operation. The services will be key to ensure security of the environment as well (Australian Building Codes Board, 2016). The services will be able to enhance the operation of the elements and supporting the operations of the church building.
Lighting and ventilation services are key to the church premises. This is a structure which will have access to many people and different activities which may raise the room temperature may be expected. This means that the room should be well ventilated and enough light be able to access the location (Mccabe & Kennedy, 2003). Under section F, part F4, the room should be ventilated according to use. In this case, the church should be able to enhance well ventilated area to boost their temperature. Under the same section F, sound systems need to provide equality in sound transmission on the room. Part J5 also offer provisions on the ventilation of the room sections. This offers the good light to the area as well as the air access in the area. The church environment is likely to provide the sounding systems to enhance the audibility on the area. The transmission should ensure the sound is audible to the users and does not become disturbances to others outside the room. This will require proper insulation to ensure noise to outside is prevented and the section F part F5 is able to provide provisions on the insulation and sound transmission. In addition, fire safety is also addressed on Volume 2 of the NCC part 3.7 (Australian Building Codes Board, 2016). Under this section, smoke alarms should be provided to ensure that the alerting mechanism is enhanced. This ensures that warnings on the sections are provided on the section to enhance the escaping root (Carey & Barr, 2015). The fire evacuation services therefore need to be enhanced and the smoke alarms are key part of the services. Air conditioning is also key to the building. These services has to be provided according to AS/NZS 1668.1. The provision guidelines are defined on part C3.15 of the NCC. This part gives the guidelines on the way the ventilation should be provided. This enhances the operation of the room and ensure that air circulation is maintained at a higher level. The air conditioning will ensure that the room temperature is maintained on the room section. This will be a key parameter which is needs on a gathering location like the church.
Water services to any building are key. In this project, the washroom, kitchen and the bathroom will need to be connected to the water services to enhance their functionality. The use of water on this church project will be essential and therefore the building will need to be connected to such services (Moran, 2017). Volume three section B stipulated on different categories of water which should be connected to the building. The bathroom section may require connection to hot water and cold water systems. In addition, non-drinking water may be connected to the toilet and the bathroom sections. This may not happen to the section which will require clean water for the kitchen services (Victoria, 2008). The church considering the presence of the different people accessing will require a water point where people can access clean water to quencher their thirst. Therefore use of water on this project and case study will be inevitable and therefore increasing the need for these services. Therefore proper analysis shows that the water services under the NCC Volume three will be essential and crucial (Moran, 2017). The congregation, which will be able to meet on this environment, will require water and therefore increasing the need of such services. In addition, firefighting water equipment can also be used to enhance the security of the location from incidents such as fire. Water points under pressure may therefore be provided to enhance the fire fighting (Australian Building Codes Board, 2016). The water team will therefore need to provide such services to the location. The high-pressure water point will be able to enhance the firefighting mechanisms on the location. Therefore, it will be key to ensure that these services are provided on this case study. It will help to provide water for usage and other services on the location.
In conclusion, building services and accommodating service are critical in any king of building structure. These services are able to enhance the operation of the building. The NCC and BCA are able to give key guidelines on the way these services will be provided. In addition, these services are required to meet specific levels of test so that they can be able to be installed on such building. In the church structure case study, it is clear that different services must be installed and provided to ensure proper operations. For instance, the sewage and storm water disposal must be enhance in the area to maintain safety and proper health. In addition, electric services and air-conditioning must be as well be provided on such locations. Moreover, access services have to be enhanced in some locations to enhance access to all people. Additionally water services are also required on this building structure. Different amenities on this building will required enhancing their operation. Fire amenities and services as well as exit plan for the fire will also be critical services, which will be required on this building structure. These amenities and services will have different effects when they are not provided and therefore will be critical to be provided on this structure.
