Sample Answer 1:
The plans illustrate the development of a health centre from 2005 to the present day. Overall, it is clear that some major changes have been taken place to the health centre.

First of all, the only room which remained unchanged in health centre since 2005 is physiotherapy room. There is an extra minor operations room being added next to it, thus the size of the garden has decreased. In present day, there are more seats available to the patients than that in 2005. In addition, there are 4 consulting rooms now compared to that in the year 2005 which had only 3 rooms. The main entrance is, noticeably, shifted to the bottom left corner of the health centre with additional children's play area. The reception desk is now placed near the entrance which is opposite of children's play area.

Lastly, the car park slots have been increased to 30 spaces in present day from only 12 spaces in the year 2005.

Sample Answer 2:
The two illustrations show the previous and the latest plans of a health centre in 2005 and in the present day. 

In 2005, the main entrance was located in front of the health centre with 12 car parking spaces outside. From the main entrance there were a number of seats where clients could sit and wait for consultation. Moreover, there were three large consulting rooms and an office where clients could be accommodated and a reception desk in the far corner from the entrance. From there, there was a physiotherapy room, located behind the reception desk where clients undergone musculo-skeletal rehabilitation. 
In the present day plan, the health centre is revised in this way. Both the entrance and reception desk are transferred in the left corner of the health centre and a playing area created opposite to the reception desk. They added another room for consulting purposes but not as large as the previous plan before. Likewise, spaces are expanded for car parking up to 30 slots. While the office and the physiotherapy room are in their original structure, a minor operating room is added beside the latter. To sum up, the present day plan is constructed with more rooms added although smaller in size compared in the past.

The figures compare the floor plan of a health centre before and after some developments, in 2005 and in present day. It is evident that significant modifications have been made in terms of usage of floor space. Overall, the health centre has been redeveloped from 5 rooms to 7 rooms.

In 2005, the health centre had 3 consultations rooms, an office and a physiotherapy rooms. Visitors could access main entrance from the 12 spaced car parking area, which led to reception desk and 11 seat area in the building.

In present day, the space of 3 consultation rooms have been replaced with main entrance that leads into adjacent reception desk and children's play area with 2 seats. Moreover, the central seating area has been modified from 11 to 14 seats and gives better access to all rooms. The space between office and physiotherapy room in the northern end is now replaced with minor operations room. Also, the old entrance and consultation room has been substituted with 3 smaller consultation rooms, giving a total of 4 consultation rooms. The parking space is now larger to contain 30 cars. However, no change has been made to the physiotherapy room.
