The detailed engineering design stage is a crucial phase for projects, primarily industrial projects. Therefore, at this stage,designers develop all the details to provide an integrated industrial design
The FEED (Front End Engineering Design) and Basic Engineering is followed by detailed engineering. So, designers develop integrated industrial design to include every detail in the diagrams and drawings. Therefore, designers complete detailing for all disciplines like civil works, instrumentation, control system, electrical facilities, etc.in this stage. Invariably, the procurement support runs parallelly alongside this stage.
The detailed engineering solutions for various disciplines are provided in a staggered manner depending on the delivery time and requirement in each project. Therefore, maintaining targets is essential for keeping up with fixed project deadlines. Hence, the need for proper coordination, constant communication between all parties involved.
A few of the major deliverables of this detailed engineering design stage are
Good For Construction (GFC) drawings for each discipline.
It is essential to provide all the drawings in one go so that the contractor/ vendor can plan his work, his workforce scheduling, etc.So this ensures the completion of the industrial project as per schedule.The project planning by the contractor also helps the client work out the cash flow for the project.
The cost estimate provided at this stage is of the accuracy of +/- 5%
Bill of Quantities:
The Bill of Quantities delivers all the information of the items required for the project along with the complete specification and benchmarked product.

In this detailed engineering design stage, it is the responsibility of the designer to check whether an integrated industrial design has the inputs of clients. The parameters of various building components and equipment are frozen. So, they workout all critical aspects including piping design and utility designs.
The output could be in 2D or 3D depending on the requirements of the project and client.
