Abstract

It has been evident that societal culture/personal behaviour factors have relationships with the usage of buildings and the design processes. This becomes more important for special buildings such as mental healthcare facilities due to the approved linkage between building properties and patients treatment approaches. For such buildings, new ways are needed to evaluate building performance and ensure building compliance. However, one limitation of conventional Code Checking Systems is that they operate with conventional design code compliance logic that lacks the capability to inform the designer of the patients psychological requirements. This paper reviews the patients psychological requirements and their relevant Architectural design parameters in order to develop a framework for a Psychological-Based Code Compliance Checking BIM System for Healthcare facilities (with focus on Thailand as a case study). The paper will discuss the methodology based on the covered relevant literature. The main findings are about the identification of the key psychological factors, the architectural design parameters of healthcare facilities.
