การศึกษาความเป็นไปได้ในการก่อสร้างอาคารสำนักงานเทศบาลต้นแบบ (กรณีศึกษาเทศบาลตำบล บางคูวัด) / พสิษฐ์ มะลิ = The Feasibility Study for the Construction of Municipal Building prototype (Case Study Bang-Ku-Wat Municipal)
The Bang-Ku-Wat municipality would like to expand its facilities to better serve the public. At present, a 16-1-88 rai plot of land has been acquired for new construction; however, construction has not yet been started because of insufficient funds. Due to the potential of the land, respect for the community, and to aid the future growth of the city, the researcher is interested in studying a method of construction feasibility of office buildings so that the Bang-Ku-Wat municipality can fund its new facilities, which may serve as a prototype for other municipal buildings. This study focused on how the municipality could construct its office buildings with a limited budget and how these buildings could be a prototype that will serve the needs of the public over time. The study examined a new construction method to reduce the period of construction, and the cost and energy consumption. As a result, some of the finished functional areas of the buildings could be used to generate extra revenue which could be used to complete the construction. Construction materials were selected including energy-saving insulated panels, safety glass, and uPVC frames. The case study covered an area of 25,000 square meters, which was building space with no decoration or public utilities (electricity, water, air-conditioning, etc.). The period of construction based on the research calculation of 240 days while the original period of construction was 360 days. The difference was 120 days or 33.33% of the construction cost. According to the research, the actual construction cost was 4,800 baht per square meter while the original cost was 7,000 baht per square meter, the difference being 2,200 baht per square meter or 31.43%. The area was managed to be of 100% optimum use and it could be used to generate supplemental income. In conclusion, this study examines the feasibility of investment for municipal construction that involves funding from the private sector, which is a new dimension for municipal organizations. The research results can be applied to the construction of future buildings whose period of construction is shortened, has lower construction cost and energy consumption, and makes maximum use of building space.
