A key ingredient in the recipe for client satisfaction and profitability for all parties: Embracing technical elements of design, collaboratively at the right level of detail in each phase. This brings greater freedom for design expression, by not becoming ensnared during subsequent phases, documentation, and construction. According to the Construction Specifications Institute, "the information embodied in specifications can lead to better performing projects through reduced cost, fewer schedule delays, and decreased overall risk. This in turn creates value for the owner and other stakeholders in the construction project."
