Detailed steps in the construction design process

To construct a project, you must have a methodical construction design process. So what are the detailed steps in the construction design process? Let’s find out with DBMC in the article below!

1. Detailed sequence of steps in the construction design process

To ensure the construction process, construction units must go through the construction design process according to the following basic steps:

  • Step 1: The investor provides information to the construction unit and this unit will receive those requests.

  • Step 2: The construction unit will prepare a basic design plan and activities to deploy the architectural layout.

  • Step 3: When designing a construction project, you cannot skip the step of adjusting the plan according to the investor’s requirements and signing a design contract.

  • Step 4: The construction unit prepares a 3D design plan for both the interior and exterior of the construction project. Then, if necessary, this design plan will be adjusted according to the investor’s requirements.

  • Step 5: Deploy detailed technical documents, structures of the project as well as a number of other factors such as electricity, water, and fire protection.

  • Step 6: Submit to the customer for approval and hand over the design drawings as agreed between the investor and the construction unit.

2. Requirements for construction design process

According to Article 52 of Decree CP on quality management of construction works. The design must ensure the following general requirements:

  • The project must be in accordance with construction planning, landscape, natural conditions and architectural regulations; approved construction investment project;

  • Suitable for technological design in case of investment and construction projects with technological design;

  • The foundation of the project must ensure sustainability, not sink, crack or deform beyond the allowable limit, affecting the life of the project and neighboring structures;

  • The content of the construction design must be consistent with the requirements of each design step and satisfy the functional requirements; Ensuring aesthetics and reasonable price;

  • Ensuring safety, savings, and compliance with applicable construction regulations and standards; standards on fire and explosion prevention, environmental protection and related standards; For public works, they must ensure design according to standards for disabled people;

  • Synchronize in each project, meeting the requirements for operation and use of the project; synchronized with related projects.

  • Construction architecture must be consistent with the customs, practices, culture and society of each region and locality;

  • Safety for users when an incident occurs; Safe, favorable and effective conditions for firefighting and rescue activities; ensure distance between works, use fireproof materials and equipment to limit the harmful effects of fire on neighboring works and the surrounding environment;

  • Comfort, hygiene and health conditions for users

  • Projects maximize the advantages and limit the disadvantages of nature to ensure energy savings during use.


The information that DBMC’s article has compiled above has certainly helped you gain necessary knowledge about the current construction design process. Hopefully through this article, you will have some ideas to apply to your own projects.
