02: Design Development

Design development (DD) services use the initial design documents from the schematic phase and take them one step further.

This phase lays out mechanical, electrical, plumbing, structural, and architectural details.

Typically referred to as DD, this phase results in drawings that often specify design elements such as material types and location of windows and doors.

The level of detail provided in the DD phase is determined by the owner’s request and the project requirements.

The DD phase often ends with a formal presentation to, and approval by, the owner.
