Design Services – In most instances, SDA initially engages Design Consultants to perform Predesign Phase services, which are intended to investigate and document existing conditions and project requirements; identify and evaluate potential design solutions; and establish a project scope for further development. Upon successful completion of Predesign Phase services, Design Consultants are then typically engaged for Design and Construction Phase services based upon that established project scope.
