Project Design Specifications


What are Design Specifications?

Harrison details include the specifications for all material and finishes used in a scheme. These can be in the form of specifications included on drawings or as separate documents such as ‘specification books’.

Why are Design Specifications important?

These specifications are important as it controls the type and quality required for the finished project. Should alternatives be offered by contractors or the client for example, the original designer specification can be used as the reference point. Design specifications provide clarity for costing purposes too.

How Harrison manages Design Specifications?

The Harrison team will control specifications by giving responsibility to the designer generally for finishes and fixtures, and responsibility to the technical staff to control the technical and construction detail specifications.
