In this phase we develop the Design Drawings into a in-depth and precise set of Construction Documents. These architectural drawings and specifications have all of the details, dimensions, and notes necessary to communicate the entire design to the builder. We show all the building components, specify all of the materials, finishes, fixtures, equipment, and appliances to be installed. We also coordinate our drawings with the structural engineer’s and any other consultant drawings, when necessary.
The Construction Documents phase often requires the most time because of all of the detail that goes into it. So don’t be surprised when it takes longer than Design Development. However, this is a essential step in the process to accurately and successfully accomplish the design you have invested your time in. At this point clients make decisions early during this phase before things get finalized. It is our job as your architect to make recommendations and guide you about the options. Ultimately you will be the one occupying and maintaining the home or building and you have the final say.
