Purpose of design and construct

The design and construct of a piece of engineering work - be it a building, an airport, a ship, a dam, etc. - is always related to the purpose the user of it has in mind. The user can be a group of users or stakeholders such as the population of the province of Zeeland in the case of the Delta works. That purpose can be described in functional requirements, in this case:

1. Safety against storm flooding;

2. Maintenance friendliness.

These requirements are referred to by the word functionality. The object should function according to the purpose the user had in mind. Defining the purpose - explicitly or implicitly - and translating it into required functionality is the first step in any construction project.
