Complexity Variation:

“Low complexity projects” means simple buildings or groups of buildings in an uncomplicated grouping with low impact on the environment. These are structures with low-performance requirements. Structures of simple utilitarian character, design, and detail. The structures are constructed utilizing standard low-technology building methods. They require a minimum of mechanical and electrical services or equipment and basic civil works infrastructure. Examples of such projects are student accommodations or flats.

 

“Medium complexity projects” means buildings or groups of buildings in a relatively uncomplicated grouping with a medium impact on its environs. These are structures with medium performance requirements. The structures are of average character and design or detail. The structures require non-complex structural and civil works and an average level of mechanical or electrical equipment as could normally be handled by design-supply specialist contractors. Examples of such projects are residential homes.

 

“High complexity projects” means a building or buildings in a large or complicated grouping with a significant impact on its environs. These are structures with high-performance requirements and demanding a sophisticated level of design and detail content to respond to specialized requirements. Complex buildings will usually incorporate comparatively large or specialized mechanical, electrical and other specialist installations, or be of complex structural or civil design. Examples of such projects are commercial buildings, shopping centers, or complex residential homes.
