What Is Design Development?
Design development (DD) takes the schematic design (SD) one step further. Our architects take your input from the SD phase and translate it into a more detailed building plan. Within design development, we make final selections on specific products and furnishings, while preliminary engineering begins on the building’s various systems.
By the end of the design development stage, you will have a fully-fleshed blueprint ready to submit for permits and begin the bidding process.
Architect-Directed Product Selection
A significant portion of design development is working with the client to make product selections. Our architects offer a pragmatic perspective during this task, and our guidance ensures that the project budget stays on track.
Allow us to assist you in exploring all the amenities available to you. More than that, allow us to help you analyze each one’s longevity, energy efficiency, value, and beauty. In design development, you can expect to give the final say on:
- And more
This is an exciting time where you have free reign to add your personal flair to all these features. We’ll work closely with you to make sure every choice is judicious and will serve your best interests well into the future.
Interior Design Development
Bringing Details into Focus
Whatever details were lacking in the schematic design will be thoroughly addressed during design development. We go over our interior design with you to make sure everything from the entryway to the guest powder room gets your full stamp of approval.
At our firm, we like to think of design development as a focusing lens on a camera. At this stage, vague concepts are pulled into focus to reveal the details within. In DD, you work closely with the architect to identify and weed out potential flaws until only a robust design remains.
Upon DD completion, you’ll have a perfected:
- Floor plan
- Elevation plan
- Section drawings with dimensions
With these documents solidified and in place, we shift our focus to the exciting task of construction.
