Factors to consider:


The first and foremost thing to consider is practicality of the project. The user-friendly constructed project would have more impact in comparison to just “beauty” based one. Ultimately, it is always the value that should be considered rather than what can be seen.
It all comes down to the purpose for which the construction is taking place. The idea and “why” behind that construction is everything. The meaningful impact is when the expectations are met with usability side by side.


The construction should be about sustainability. It should not leave your pockets dry. The mindful usage of resources should be kept in mind. No amount of money, water, human resource should go to waste in crafting an idea to the point where things get depleted.


It is one of the basic need for a human being to seek safety. One can have all the riches in the world and still if they feel the lack of security, it’s not worth it. No construction should cost anyone any harm be it mental, physical, emotional or otherwise. Safety along with the purpose of the construction should be kept in mind. This goes for both the project executor as well as for the team hired.


The project under construction should be easily available to meet the needs for every individual. It should be diversified, age-less and time-less. It should be easily available if the need is there for an individual to go.


The construction project must be flexible enough to cater to all the needs of the individual that could vary from human to human. Not every side fit all. Keep in mind the preferences and inclusion of special need people for a progressive society.


Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but sometimes it takes one look to form the idea, given the kind of construction hat has been done. A good construction project should include this aspect alongside the usage. What doesn’t appeal the eye, doesn’t appeal the heart at times. The construction project should reflect the ultimate goal and must also hold the aspect of one’s personality in it.
