CON­STRUC­TION DRAW­INGS

Timber Home Living - - Architech, Design, & Engineers -

Ar­chi­tects typ­i­cally use four dis­tinct terms to break down the de­sign phase of a project. These are:

Con­cep­tual de­sign: loose, pos­si­bly free­hand, sketches of a de­sign ap­proach

De­sign de­vel­op­ment: se­lect­ing ma­te­ri­als, in­te­grat­ing sys­tems and de­scrib­ing de­tails

Schematic de­sign: more pre­cise sketches of a pre­ferred de­sign

Con­struc­tion draw­ings: the draw­ings that com­pletely de­scribe what’s needed to build

Keep in mind that ev­ery­thing up to con­struc­tion draw­ings is pre­lim­i­nary de­sign, while the con­struc­tion draw­ings rep­re­sent the fi­nal de­sign.
