Detail Design Intent, Documentation & Coordination.

During Detail Design, we develop the design scheme significantly based on the design and planning that was approved in the previous phase.

The first priority of this phase is to produce a set of drawings and outline specifications to show potential contractors for preliminary cost estimating. We are then well-positioned to make adjustments if necessary to bring the project scope in line with the construction budget and can then resolve the final dimensions and material specifications. The final deliverable will be a detailed set of drawings that communicates the overall layout and volume of the space, all fixtures, and the material or finish for every surface of the project.

Key Expertise

  • Create a buildable solution
  • Develop a design that is within budget

  • Key interior details (I.e. doors, interfaces and material junctions)
  • Joinery details (I.e. reception desk, built-in furniture & cabinetry)
  • Material schedule of key materials & physical materials board - to an agreed client budget
  • Furniture selection and outline specification for public areas only
  • Coordination with sub-consultants, such as M&E, AV, RSE, QS, Lighting & Acoustic consultants & local architect/architect of record
  • Design Team workshop attendance
  • Formal presentations with the Client upon key milestone submissions
  • Formal issue of presentation in PDF format & drawings in both CAD and PDF format

Site Surveys

Using our specialist 4K Matterport Pro2 3D camera we can produce accurate site surveys to use as the basis for our design drawings.

The use of this state of this art technology ensures we have a record of the buildings data in 3D and assists us in mitigating against unique site constraints which causes less problems during the fit-out phase.

Production of Drawing Packages

We produce comprehensive drawing packages to document our designs. Our packages include clearly articulating the overall design via a series of drawings which contain essential information such as setting out, dimensions, material codes, lighting and furniture specifications etc. as well as drilling down into all the key details and junctions.

Production of Materials Boards

We curate a set of materials unique to each project and we produce rich physical materials boards using our extensive materials supply chain.
