Simulation centre design comprises three core elements: building form, room usage (function), and technology. Each has a number of sub-components but the overriding theme in all elements is flexibility. The first phase of the design process is to establish the business model including defining who to train, what type of training, funding model, and budget. This will determine the building components. Other items to consider during the design process include: traffic flow, storage, interrelationships between training areas, breakout space, and technical and building services components. The success of the simulation centre starts with a clear understanding of each of these components and a clear vision of the training market to be served both now and in the future.
