Scaled technical drawings and specifications will be created from the schematic Drawings that will be required for permitting and construction of the project.
Scaled interior drawings and specifications will be created using the technical drawings from the construction documents
STEP 3: PRE-CONSTRUCTION
Review of the architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing Drawings to ensure completeness of design and coordination of all disciplines With each other.
