In this phase the Architect expands upon the approved schematic design studies to develop more detailed drawings illustrating other aspects of the proposed design. Floor plans show all the rooms in correct size and shape. Outline specifications are prepared listing the major materials and room finishes. The Architect verifies that the design complies with building codes and works with engineers to design the structure, mechanical and electrical systems. The project proceeds to the next phase when the Owner approves the Design Development documents.
