PHASE Four:
Design development
Refining the design requires knowledge, craft, and feedback.
In this phase, we refine the Schematic Design to ensure that it meets the “real world” test. The design is further clarified: drawings are computerized, rooms are given dimensions, roofs are given pitches, and all essential building components are fully integrated. A final analysis of all regulatory and code requirements is completed and incorporated into the design. We carefully review all modifications together to ensure that the final design is in keeping with the clients’ original goals. When this phase is complete, the client will have an accurate picture of the final design to be constructed, with plans and elevations drawn to scale.
