Project Design Specifications
What are Design Specifications?
Harrison details include the specifications for all material and finishes used in a scheme as identified in the concept.
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.
Ensuring that the design specifications are well-constructed is a big part of why our project management services excel.
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.
Harrison provides details of custom features such as specialist joinery, panelling and lighting which may have longer lead times which may possibly need to be pre-ordered prior to construction.
Our strategic partnerships mean we have access to expert insight into so many industries.
