Identifying and Classifying Architectural Design Barriers and Measuring Their Impact.

Auther : Dr. Abdulsalam Bin A. Al-Sudairi - Ms. Elham Bent A. Al-Mohaimeed

     The barriers encountered in any process have a negative impact on its efficiency. This is more apparent in design processes as it will negatively affect the quality of design and consequently the construction later on. The aim of this study is to investigate and analyze the barriers of design processes and measure their impact. Through extensive literature review, 52 design barriers were identified.  In addition, this study has identified 39 barriers after conducting field surveys on design offices located in Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia leading to a total of 91 barriers.  These barriers were classified under six categories according to their sources which are: monitoring system, duties, design, design team, client and technology. The first five categories were adapted from other related work while the last one, technology, was identified by this study.  The barriers associated with the client had the most negative impact on design process then those associated with the design team and the least ones are those associated with the project manager. The barriers are: vagueness of

client's vision and purpose of design, weak project definition, weak clarification of design scope, changes of client's opinions during every phase of the design process, multiple design

iterations especially through the conceptual design phase, changing client's representative, multiple client's representatives, weak monitoring system and late client's changes after

completing design.
