Construction Documents

At Foxley Design, the primary focus is to create a design that reflects the vision you have in mind while taking into consideration the parameters of your site and/ or existing structure. Once we create a concept that works for your vision, the next step to take the design concepts and translate it into 3-d renderings. After the rough layout of the floor plan and elevations are complete, a 3-D rendering is created to help visualize the building once it is built. This is an invaluable tool which helps to leave as little to the imagination as possible – which is a good thing!

Foxley Design uses 3-d Rendering Software in order to help the client visualize the building once it is actually built. From creating a floor plan layout, to choosing finish materials and colors to the building envelope and window locations, this is a powerful tool in the design process. It is also a step toward putting together a set of construction documents, so the time used in creating the 3-d model is a step toward completing the construction documents as well.

From the 3-D model, construction documents are generated. This is the next project phase toward acquiring a building permit. These project sheets will clearly indicate the current building codes and structural information so that you as the homeowner or contractor can properly bid out projects. Along with creating permit drawings, a lot of collaboration is involved in the construction preparation phase. FoxleyDesign works with energy designers, structural and if necessary civil engineers. Also, many projects today require fire protection and roof truss companies to be involved. Foxley Design has experience working in collaboration with consultants in  order to facilitate the flow of the project development so that it is efficient and as painless as possible.

Below are some construction documents samples which are necessary in order to obtain a building permit.
