The Construction Document Phase
Your design is complete—congratulations! Now our architects begin the technically rigorous work of crafting the design into construction drawings (CDs) that the contractors can use to build it. We employ a strategic document creation process to ensure complete accuracy alongside swift turnaround times. Our firm utilizes advanced, secure 3D computer software to edit, save, and transmit our documents securely to contractors, city authorities, and other relevant parties.
A project’s CDs are instrumental. They dictate the success or failure of the construction process—and we prioritize the work accordingly. Our firm works tirelessly to create a coordinated set of CDs for a smooth and error-free building process.
Our firm is renowned for our thoroughness, and the CD development phase poses no exception to our professional integrity. We strategically translate all components of our designs into clear specifications and exact drawings. By consulting with engineers, our designers carefully draft foundation, framing, and connection details for a stable and longstanding new-build. Together, this information will communicate the scope of work accurately to the contracting crews. The set of drawings we develop will be integrated into your building contract.
The working drawings will display all the building’s future components, both large and small, and their respective relationships. Our architects will denote the following elements:
- Size and dimensions
- Shape and form
- Other details
These drawings function as an assembly guideline for the builders. Component by component, your new-build will take shape into a timeless piece of architectural art.
Strategic Construction Documentation Creation
As an established architecture firm, we’ve worked alongside countless construction crews and engaged in construction project management time and time again. As a result, we’re intimately familiar with the challenges and obstacles faced on the construction site. We leverage our on-site knowledge to develop robust, comprehensive CDs. Our CDs’ detail and depth enable contractors to reduce downtime, avoid cost overruns, and eliminate redundancies.
Superior Communication from Your Architects
At our firm, communication never stops. We’re continually liaising with engineers, consultants, contractors, and other professionals. When we’re involved, discrepancies don’t exist. We prioritize superior communication with anyone and everyone involved in the design phase to prevent issues and avoid conflicts. While design changes are minimal in the construction documentation phase, we still maintain ongoing communication with you, the client, to inform you of our progress and keep you up-to-date.
