What Is the Construction Document Phase?
Construction documents (CD) is the final stage of the design process and the beginning of the construction process. Put simply, construction drawings offer contractors a graphic representation of what to build and how to build it. It’s a key transitional segment of our work that can make or break the future work on the building site. That’s why our firm prioritizes the creation of sound and in-depth CDs. We ensure complete accuracy while simultaneously meeting strict time deadlines and maintaining tight budgets.
Some of the basic construction drawings involved in the CD phase are:
- Floor plans
- Roof plans
- Foundation plans
- Window/Door schedules
You can depend on our architectural staff to develop a coordinated set of construction drawings. Our CDs will function as the general contractor’s compass throughout construction and, ultimately, play an integral role in the compliant, safe erection of your new-build.
Drafting Construction Drawings
At this point in the design process, the four walls and everything in between is finalized. Design changes should be minimal, if there are any. Here, we take your complete designs and translate them into blueprints of the foundation, floors, and roof. We consult with engineers to denote every minute component’s details, including:
- Size and dimensions
- Shape and form
- Other details
With this information in hand, the contracting crew’s assembly task is clear and straightforward.

State-of-the-Art CAD Software
As a foremost architectural firm, we’ve invested in our software because we understand that the efficacy of our tools affects the efficiency of our work. All our in-house staff has access to state-of-the-art CAD software. Our CDs are created with leading 3D technology that makes documentation easier to visualize, edit, and transmit.
Experience-Based CD Development
Our architects have an unparalleled ability to craft on-point CDs because of our hands-on experience. We’ve worked in construction project management extensively. We’ve been on-site during construction. We understand the challenges and constraints of the construction field. With a long history of construction experience, we’re uniquely positioned to create CDs strategically. The detail we provide in the foundation and framing plans enables contractors to drive down costs and downtime across the board.
The Making of Construction Drawings
To develop sound CDs, our architects must collaborate with many other specialists, such as engineers, consultants, and HVAC and electrical professionals. At our firm, we believe we’re stronger together, which is why we emphasize superior communication with all external parties.
