    Design is that activity, largely executed by consultants and inhouse disciplines, which translates the aspirations of the Client, into a series of documents, both drawn and written, which in combination can be used to procure the manufacture, assembly, commissioning and operation of both building elements and the project as a whole. Management of the design process is planned to ensure that the project requirements have been correctly interpreted in an agreed brief, with a consistent format of technical verification reports and design analysis audit trail, as set out in the project plan. This paper, based on a literature review, examines traditional design management and design and construction as an integrated system. The paper is an introductory part of an ongoing project to map design and design management practices in architectural and civil engineering practices.
