Existing Building Assessments Survey

Introduction The purpose of this Existing Building Assessment Survey is to evaluate the state of buildings and architectural features within the High Level Design areas of Package 27. This report will be used to gauge land acquisition needs for roadway improvements and will also be used as a tool to augment the roadway design constraints plan. The process in which this survey was prepared consisted of a visual field survey identifying buildings, building condition and occupation. The findings were then translated in to a graphic format where a building assessment color coding system was used to graphically depict actual building conditions. During the months of investigation and survey, numerous buildings had undergone remodeling, demolition with new construction taking place. The survey team, then went back out to update the findings and modified the building assessment graphics. The graphic survey within this report illustrates current land uses and zoning, building assessments and a photographic inventory of the assessments. The building rating methodology is a generalized approach taking in to account several factors including curb appeal, occupancy, land use and future potential. This survey was conducted based on exterior visual assessments and does not include the assessments of: Roofing HVAC Systems Structural Conditions Electrical Fire Protection Accessibility Planning Area The High Design Level planning area lies within Package 27. Package 27 is located in the urban area in Doha South, near to the Doha International Airport. The High Design Level areas, indicated in red below, indicated the limit of work for the Existing Building Conditions Assessment, while the remaining areas have been photographically recorded and documented. The yellow highlighted areas indicate the primary vehicular network in Doha South and how the High Design Level areas are a vital link between Doha South and links to north destinations such as West Bay.

Overall Project Process The Urban Design/Landscape tasks for the project consist of three (3) major milestones and deliverables stages (see Figure below). Following Project Commencement, a Study Audit was performed with a detailed study of the immediate project area including an expanded area. The expanded area study consisted of studying how the adjacent areas could possibly impact the project study area and how interlinking land uses, vehicular and pedestrian circulation systems and greenspace improvements. Various tasks were performed in the Study Area Audit where a photographic inventory consisting of photos and videos of all roadway corridors. The inventory also captured neighboring areas and how the relationships of land uses impact the project study area. For example, numerous conflicts in land use were found where light industrial or heavy commercial uses where located adjacent to multi-family housing in the more heavily urbanized areas.

Part 2 – Analysis of Survey The Existing Building Assessment Survey was conducted based on a strategy of building condition heirarchy. These buildings consist of the following conditions and their relative color coding on the assessment plans: The principles of the survey conducted is subjective in nature and relative to surrounding land uses, building heights in comparison to adjacent properties, incompatibility, heritage or cultural landmarks, materials and scale, future rights-of-way and encroachments, curbing and pedestrian sidewalk access to each property. The largest category of properties falls within the Acceptable building condition. These properties contain acceptable structural conditions of buildings and land use compatibility, but are available for land acquisition during the roadway improvement design stage. The acquisition of these parcels may assist in relevant geometric improvement solutions for surrounding links, interchanges and intersections and provide a continuance of proposed urban design solutions. Analysis Highlights Summary: 1. Identify buildings that cannot be acquired due to cultural or economic restrictions; 2. Identify buildings where their conditions are substandard and acquisition is most likely; 3. Identify buildings where land use compatibilities conflict with surrounding uses; 4. Identify buildings and/or parcels where acquisition assists in reaching project goals of an improved vehicular and pedestrian circulation network to meet future demands.
