The Floor Plan Development Process Once the site plan is roughed out, a building footprint will emerge. However, the building footprint cannot be complete without knowing something about what goes on inside the building. The list of functional spaces in the building is termed the building program , and it is an essential part of the process that provides specific, detailed information to guide the design of the building and its layout. The client, engineer, and any other decision makers must be in agreement on the building program as it relates to issues like location of parking spaces, impervious area, disabled (accessible) parking requirements, emergency vehicle access, and the like. 10.1 Building Program Based on the building program, the allocation of spaces, the layout of functions, the circulation between them, and the access and egress points will constitute the building floor plan. However, much thought is required to minimize wasted space and maximize utility. Certain functions need to be located in close proximity to each other. For example, quiet areas should be located away from the front entrance and public rest rooms. Bathroom facilities normally are stacked in buildings with multiple stories to minimize plumbing runs and to be proximal to utility chases. Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) and other mechanical and electrical systems need to be incorporated into the floor plan to maximize efficiency. Staircases are needed to allow people to exit
