PART 1. PARAMETERS

1.1

Introduction

The Outward Bound Oman (OBO) currently rents a property in Al Hail but has been granted permission by the Ministry of Social Development to construct a purpose designed new head office/base camp at Al Khoud.

This Design Requirement is a guide to the design and gives the requirements and performance of the building but does not pretend to design the structure (this is the task for the architectural designer appointed on this project).

1.2

Project Goals & Objectives

OBO would like to be located in their own unique purpose designed head office facility.

The objective is that the building is the main point of entry/contact for many parties, other than OBO staff, such as:

Students

Trainers

Educational Establishments

Corporate

Journalists (Domestic & International)

Ministry of Social development

Ministry of Tourism

Any public taking an interest in these type of activities

The building must reflect the aspirations of the OBO to impart life experience and aims of Outward Bound for young people and older people fostering teamwork and problem solving all set in the beautiful surroundings of Oman’s nature (Mountains and Desert).

The design should reflect an environmentally friendly and sustainable approach to minimise future maintenance and running costs.

It should be designed in a modern contemporary way. A reflection of the local life in Oman is desirable but should not dominate the appearance. The design should be unique and not follow architectural norms in Muscat over last 30 years.

The Head Office/Base Camp will house the Reception, Staff BOH areas, Training Areas, Climbing wall, multi-hall use, changing rooms, Board level meeting rooms/lounges along with other facilities such as a café, retail for merchandising.

1.3

The Site

The plot size is 2022m², which has Local Authority permission to construct a ministry type property on the site. Design is to observe any local authority ‘setbacks/building lines’. There should be sufficient parking either underground or at ground level with shading and outside property line before road carriageway.

underground or at ground level with shading and outside property line before road carriageway. www.drivertrett.com 1

DRIVER TRETT

The site is located in Al Khoud on current MOSD land adjacent to a new local MOSD office, the land above sea level and not near a wadi run, this should avoid flooding, designer to check. It may endure heavy winds and exposure to sunshine with only a few high rise buildings in close proximity providing protection from these elements.

Due consideration should be given to glazing and general maintenance of the building and weekly routines such as cleaning the dust from facades & roof and high performance glazing/insulation against the sun’s heat.

1.4 The Design Programme

The design programme for the new Head Office building comprises departments and facilities as listed in Appendix. This will include staff areas, potential rental/retail space and parking.

The requirements regarding space, function, sustainability and symbolic value are set out through a study taking into consideration local and international trends in modern office/training design. A schedule of accommodation is also developed on the basis of a flexible Organisation structure, expected increase in staff strength and in response to urban design requirements. The design programme also sets out in broad terms symbolic requirements in keeping with Outward Bound Oman‘s vision of becoming a world class in its field and an inspiration to Omanis and the wider Middle East.

1.5 Background

The designers may wish to reflect the country of Oman which is unique for usual sunshine, blue sky, blue and warm sea water, fabulous beaches, wadis, mountains, desert and historical architecture based from an Islamic background such as mosques, or architecture based on occupiers reflected in look out posts and forts left by the Portuguese.

The local wildlife includes camels, donkeys, goats, oryx and Arabian leopard, wolves and hyenas. Along with sea animals such as turtles, dolphins, whales and hammer head sharks. There is the usual flora and fauna and underwater coral along with date palms.

Omani people have a naturally welcoming and tolerant nature and the culture follows the Islamic traditions.

The Architecture in Oman during the last 30 years has been predominantly taken the form of many commercial buildings with small windows, Islamic arches, mashrebia screens and no account for orientation of the solar or wind factors or environmental considerations. This has resulted in many similar looking buildings which are typically a level of functionality rather than aesthetically interesting. Most are not fit for purpose but designed to just make do rather than exceed expectations.

However there has been a very recent trend set by the Local Authorities to be more open with modern contemporary design if it can capture an essence of Oman. One example being the Bank Muscat Head Office at Seeb. This building has given local designers to consider “modernism” in a different way.

1.6 Uniqueness of Location

DRIVER TRETT

In order to ensure the building is unique and reflects the unique attributes of the function. It should not match appearance of neighbouring Ministry building or residential blocks but should have a personality all its own due to its unique function. As an educational establishment it is more akin to GU tech new facilities than conventional office type building.

Predominantly the staff are local (Omani) so you would expect facilities for praying, washing, areas for discreetness (especially in Ramadan). But Outward Bound is an International Organisation and there will percentage that will be expatriate and visitors also not from the region. The design should reflect the forward thinking and flexible and be environmentally sound. Hence the design must reflect the cosmopolitan nature and the international appeal that Outward Bound wishes to maintain.

1.7 The Height of Building

The height restriction by Ministry of Housing for this plot of land is not known but neighbouring residential towers are not exceeding six storeys. It is close to but not directly under the Civil Aviation flight path. The building is on level ground and unlikely to be subjected to any significant local flooding when there is a storm. As a guide only the floor heights could be:

Basement (semi recessed) ?

4.0m

Ground floor

6.0m

Could be parking/storage/reception

1st floor

4.2m

Could be reception, training, offices

2nd floor

4.2m

Any other floors to be same height (if budget and design permits)

Roof/Plant

3.0m

(depends on design significance of roof).

[NB. Avoid such terms as lower ground, upper ground and mezzanine which only lead to confusion at design stage and in actual use].

The slab to slab included floor thickness raised flooring, suspended ceiling with Air Conditioning ducting etc hidden between ceiling and underside of slab/beams. This would give 2.8m floor to ceiling height which was comfortable Class A workplace environment. The floor layouts for the offices must give as much column free space as possible to allow for flexible office interior changes in the future.

1.8 Symmetry & Shape

DRIVER TRETT

The building does not have to be symmetrical. It has to be ‘fit for purpose’ and make best use of the available land including building up to the boundary if local authority ‘building lines’ permit.

The shape may include curves if deemed architecturally interesting. Curved or slanted walls/glazing and/or curtain walling can be considered if the designer justifies the design as architecturally interesting and integral to the overall design form.

The entrance

height curtain walling and/or spider glass system which would allow in plenty of natural daylight but the excessive heat of the sun must not be allowed to superheat the internal

spaces.

is expected to be grand and possibly covered/canopy especially if its full

Consider access through revolving door or other grand entrances to reduce dust, rain and insect/pest control.

1.9 Style & Use of materials

The style should be modern contemporary with an understated account of local attributes. The design should be ‘iconic’ and ‘unique’. Old world architecture does not fit with the training of predominantly youthful students. It is not going to be a museum, historical reverence or be of religious significance.

The design can use any of the following materials as there is no limit to the imaginative use of any combination:

Concrete

Metals: Steel, aluminium, copper, tin

Glazing: double/triple glazing, feature walls, spider glazing

Timber: Glulam structures, boarding, shingles

Stone: local or international

Marble: local or international

Porcelain: for use possibly internally

Ceramic: tiles

Earth: external or internal

Plastics: If used externally should be able to withstand severe heat and resist ‘bleaching’.

Indeed due to the sustainable objective of this facility it could lend itself to innovative design for Glulam or similar systems rather than standard un eco-friendly concrete structure.

Preference would be for locally sourced materials or skills in Oman, then the Gulf area and finally Internationally.

The design may be L.E.E.D. or B.R.E.E.A.M accredited (but only if it is contained within the limited budget constraints), if it can be proven that this saves energy and costs over time. Any sustainable consideration is welcome.

3.4

Symbolic Requirements

3.4.1

The design shall represent the Outward Bound Oman’s aspirations to be at the forefront of training for teamwork and problem solving utilising life skills in the real and natural world, in Oman, the Gulf region and internationally, in a manner that portrays teamwork and avoid being eclectic and overworked.

3.4.2

The design shall represent the Outward Bound Oman in a modern and progressive contemporary way. Therefore local inferences, Omani and Arabic culture may be reflected but the adopted design should not match any other building in Oman. The use of overworked motifs, mashrebia and Islamic arches should be avoided or used sparingly otherwise it will not be modern contemporary in design. Modern materials such as glass, steel, glulam, metals can be used as opposed to standard concrete if the design dictates and potentially mixed with traditional stone and tiling, weatherboarding. The shape does not have to be rigid with straight walls or roofs; however the design should be practical for maintenance and internal furniture layouts. Consider window cleaning and roof maintenance at all times.

3.4.3

The design does not have to be symmetrical (left and right vista from the entrance road) but it should give a sense of order and works with the overall master plan.

3.4.4

The Outward Bound Oman logo shall feature in a prominent place on the front elevation facing both roads in proximity to the site. This should be in state of the art practice in signage design and ideally would allow for future changes without leaving visible fixing bolts after any changes. All signage and way-finding must be in ‘Arabic’ and ‘English’.

3.4.5

The height of the building shall be such that it shall have an imposing presence as it will the focus of the area. In no case should it be higher than the permitted height of the plot.

3.4.7

Provisions shall be made for sculpture and other works of Art or photographs. This can be internally in the Reception area, along corridors, landings for lifts and stairs and externally spaces shall be particularly designated in the design for this purpose
