The final stage of the Design Process involves material specification. Johnson Design Group will evaluate and select materials, taking into account factors which include code compliance, building standards, sustainability guidelines and human needs. JDG will also evaluate tradeoffs of the different materials. All of this information will be compiled on material boards that will be presented to the client. Once the materials have been specified, JDG will create a Finish/Materials Manual that will be used for reference by all for the entirety of the project.
