For in-stream projects the Detailed Design and Design Development task typically follows permitting and revisions. For the pumped parks this phase follows preliminary design and, often, a value engineering process designed to establish project parameters. Detailed design elements are often the most time-consuming and/or expensive to undertake and are saved until this phase in order to avoid the need to redo them should the project parameters change.
Detailed design includes any physical modeling or computational fluid dynamics. It also includes the process of defining the specific geometries, details, and elevations of a project. S2o’s engineers will complete all required final analysis elements and will create detailed design documents and specifications.
