the Design Development Phase (previously referred to as Preliminary Design) follows the approval of the schematic
design by CPDC / Board of Trustees and the campus. The phase cannot begin until Schematic Design has been approved
and written authorization to proceed has been issued by the campus.
The emphasis of the phase is on developing the more technical issues of the project such as actual products,
assembly of systems, and further coordination of disciplines while addressing any items brought forward during the
schematic design approval process. The documents confirm or adjust, as required, all aspects of the schematic
plans and revise cost information to reflect the more detailed development.
Information presented in various deliverables need to be organized and easily followed. Refer to Exhibit D,
California State University Procedure Manual for Capital Projects, for the minimum requirements for Design
Campus designated staff shall attend all meetings to insure campus representation and provide guidance to Design
team per previsions of the contract.
The construction manager (CM) shall check the documents for completeness, coordination, ambiguities, ability to
bid, and make recommendations to the Architect and the Trustees. in addition to providing constructability reviews
continuously, at 100% DDs, the CM shall issue a constructability report and a complete construction cost estimate.
