The purpose of this stage is to develop the initial schematic design into more detailed building documentation, which addresses specific building and regulatory requirements in preparation for later construction documentation. This stage is used to detail and develop the design.
Included in this stage are:
- Detailed floor plans (e.g. Concept lighting and power plans, structural and mechanical services layouts and landscaping master plans).
- Detailed internal and external elevations (e.g. Kitchen, bathroom and laundry areas, unique joinery units and outdoor structures).
- Preliminary building cross sections and detailed three-dimensional perspective views.
- Review of the Development Permit to ensure design is compliant with statutory requirements.
All drawings are produced at an appropriate scale to clearly communicate such things as the selection of all fittings, fixtures, hardware, material and finishes.
