Commercial architecture differs from other types by concentrating on the needs of the client’s business. The overall plan must be engineered to support the sort of business conducted within the facility and facilitate the achievement of the client’s corporate objectives.
This is where commercial architects must face greater difficulty. For instance, in residential construction, the design is limited to meeting the requirements of the dwelling household, a relatively small number of individuals. But, in commercial architecture, the plan must be acceptable to the occupying company, its personnel, and all clients (or patients, clients, and any other people the business may serve).
