After the programming requirements have been clearly defined, schematic design documents are created to establish the conceptual design of the project – illustrating the scale & relationship of the major project components.
Once the schematic design documents are approved, design development documents are produced to refine the design of the project; establishing the scope, relationships, forms, size and appearance of the project by means of plans, sections and elevations.
Finally, a set of complete construction documents is generated to provide the detailed requirements for the project’s construction. Construction documents include things such as: floor and roof plans, elevations, wall sections & details, and door & window schedules. Other typical design services include:
- Finish selection & specifications
- FF&E (furniture, fixtures & equipment) specification & procurement
- Artwork consultation
