process: Design Development Phase
Advancing design, budget, schedule; design approval
We will further develop the approved schematic design and bring life and detail to our ideas. The design takes on shape. Additionally, we collaborate with the team of consultants to make the project real by addressing solar orientation, mechanical, plumbing & electrical systems, analyze the energy efficiency and material selections.
We will further develop drawings and 3-d models, generate building elevations to study each side of your new home and draw building sections to show shapes at rooms and ceilings. Reflected ceiling plans will show the ceiling; a roof plan will be produced in addition to all the remaining floor plans. We will start discussing interior spaces, come up with fun and unique ideas for the inside and begin selecting interior finishes and materials.
During this phase, we will also start the review and approval process with the local planning department and any design review boards.
At the end of this phase, we will provide the contractor with a DD Pricing Package and get updated budget numbers. We ill then know that your home can be built within the budget and per schedule.
