An architect will create schematic design drawings before completing construction documents.
Schematic design drawings have a minimal amount of information on the drawings. Information such as the wall locations, room dimensions, room names, door sizes, window sizes, roofs, decks, porches, balconies, and fixtures, so the client can see exactly what the design will look like. This stage is where changes should occur before going to final drawings.
Once the schematic design is approved, the architect completes the construction documents.
The construction documents contain all the relevant building information necessary to build the project. The construction documents show all notes, construction details, dimensions, materials, and so much more. The construction documents are primarily for the owner to obtain building permits, contractors to build from and to obtain bids/estimates from the construction team members in order to see the total project cost..
