What is it?
The Document phase involves completing the final design and plan set so that your Contractor can apply for building permit in order to carry out construction, including adding any revisions required by Building Department..
This is where I create a detail set of plans that identify the design intent and how things are to be installed and constructed. These might be bigs things like locations of sinks, appliances, windows, doors but they are also small things that make a huge difference. Reveals of Cabinetry, countertops, backsplashes are details that can make or break a kitchen. Having working for a design build firm in the past I understand what a contractor needs and wants. My plans will have details and your contractor will be smiling. I want him to look at these plans and completely understand the intent.. Elevations, sections, and detail drawings are key in making sure that the design is built, installed and implemented as designed.
