going to meet. The architect may provide

design that include different options. At this

2. Design Development (DD)
During this stage, the design is
refined into a set of drawings that encompass all
aspects. These drawings become the foundation
for the construction drawings that are submitted to
the government for approval. DD drawings are
similar to construction drawings, but may not
contain as many details, dimensions and notes.

architectural team works to incorporate these
changes. CDs must include all details required by
the city, county and federal guidelines. These are
the documents to which a contractor is held

receive a Certificate of Substantial Completion, certifying that the architect’s responsibility on
this project is complete.
