When reviewing the 5 phases (SD, DD, CD, Bidding, CA) of a Design-Bid-Build Project Delivery type, I keep getting caught up on what are considered the " Design Phases". Is the SD and DD phase considered the "Design Phases" because of high level design occurring during these stages of a project? Or does this group also include the CD phase due to detail development / design happening primarily during this phase?
Also, even though Pre-design services are considered an Additional Service, per AIA Contracts, if this was included as part of the Project Schedule, would this phase fall under the "Design Phases". I haven't came across any material that gives me a black and white answer for this so I am hoping that someone here can give me some insight!
Appreciate all the help!
