1) Create a list of rooms.
Architects use the term “Program” to define what goes into your house. This term indicates the
types of rooms and their numbers you want in your house. So before you start, always make a
list of the rooms you want. And a short tip for this is to always make decisions about this by
thinking about the future. So that you don’t have to pay extra money after few years and change
your interior
2) Budget
It is the most important thing that people miss out before starting the construction.
Always think about your budget which includes Construction costs(Materials, Labor, Contractor,
appliances etc.), Engineering costs, Government fees etc.
And the best way to do it is to add 15-20% of additional costs in the budget to keep things in
control in spite of surprises.
3) How big will your house be?
The size of your house has to be balanced with your program and your budget. Your architect
can play a big role in this. Always try to create a plan where you can fulfill the maximum of your
needs within your budget.
4) Hire a good team for your new house
Always remember when you’re choosing a team(Engineers, Architects, Contractors) for your
dream house. You’re giving your dream in the hand of that team. So always try to choose a
team whom you can trust the most. Don’t try to save money in that case. Always remember a
good team will take some more money for a reason. And that reason is they will fulfill your
dream in the best possible way.
5) Sustainability
Always try to look for sustainability(choosing good materials, piling etc) when you are building
your house. If you don’t focus on sustainability then it will cost you a huge amount of money and
energy in the long run. It may cost a little bit at the start. But you’ll feel it’s pleasure after few
years.

What is Structural Engineering???

Structural engineering is concerned with the structural #design and structural
analysis of buildings, bridges, towers, flyovers (overpasses), tunnels, offshore
structures like oil and gas fields in the sea, aerostructure and other structures.
This involves identifying the loads which act upon a structure and the forces and
stresses which arise within that #structure due to those loads, and then
designing the structure to successfully support and resist those loads. The loads
can be the self weight of the structures, other dead load, live loads, moving
(wheel) load, wind load, earthquake load, load from temperature change etc. The
structural engineer must design structures to be safe for their users and to
successfully fulfill the function they are designed for (to be serviceable). Due to
the nature of some loading conditions, sub-disciplines within structural
engineering have emerged, including wind engineering and earthquake
engineering. Design considerations will include strength, stiffness, and stability
of the structure when subjected to loads which may be static, such as furniture or
self-weight, or dynamic, such as wind, seismic, crowd or vehicle loads, or
transitory, such as temporary #construction loads or impact. Other
considerations include cost, constructability, safety, aesthetics and
sustainability.
