Construction Document Creation in Delray Beach, Wellington, Lighthouse Point, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and surrounding South Florida areas
Once the Schematic Designs have been fully developed and approved, and the client is satisfied with how things are progressing, Barretta & Associates moves on to the next phase, the creation of Design Development designs defining systems and materials, until we have your approval. The next phase is commonly called construction documents. Actually, the technically correct phase name is Construction Contract Documents, as they become an integral part of your Construction Contract.
Our experience creating construction documents that are fully representative of our client's wishes has made us a Delray Beach, Wellington , Lighthouse Point, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and surrounding South Florida areas leader in the field of Architecture & Engineering. Detailed, accurate construction documents save our clients time and money by giving the construction company a clear portrait of what the project is intended to look like and how it is to be built. Of course, since the prepared, Construction Contract Documents set forth legal requirements, terms and conditions for the construction activities and results, you will get what you want.
What are Construction Documents and Why Do They Matter?
Construction Documents are detailed drawings, and specifications thoroughly describing your building so that the Contractors know what and how to build your building. They cover everything that the construction team needs to know in order to successfully build the structure. These documents are highly detailed and include everything needed for building permits, bidding, and construction.
In a nutshell, construction documents are the first key piece of information that is passed along to the construction company, and contains essential information that allows them to start putting everything together. These documents are extremely important because of this; they are crucial directives instructing the Contractors/ Builders regarding all of their work on your project.
Building Documentation Increases Accuracy
Accuracy is always a significant concern with any documents produced during the design process, but because these documents are interpreted by a company other than Barretta & Associates (the Bidders), it is particularly important during this phase that they are clear, detailed, and concise.
We strive to provide work that is within your budget, and we understand that any misrepresentations/misinterpretations in the construction documents can lead to a quote that does not match your financial intended results. As a result, we are fully committed to producing the most detailed, accurate construction documents possible.Book an Appointment
Building Documentation Improves Communication
With every step leading up to this, we emphasize the importance of communication, and with construction documents it becomes clearer than ever why this is so essential. What may seem like a small change at this stage actually tends to require massive restructuring, because of how linked everything becomes in various drawings.
For example, if you want to move a window to another area of the room, what implications does that have for where the pipes will run? Was there something else planned for that section of wall? Changes are then required on the structural columns and beams for that opening wanted to be moved. That aﬀects the floor plan, foundation plan, the floor or roof framing plans, as well as electrical plans, plumbing plans, air conditioning plans etc. Client communication is central to our business model, and by thorough communication throughout the design process we are able to make any necessary changes before passing the project on to your builders. Remember making that simple example change becomes much more complicated and expensive in the field than in the oﬃce.
