Haycox and Associates are Architectural Designers.
We carry out design from conception to completion.
The design process commences with concepts comprising several options based on the client’s brief. There can be many changes, revisions and fine tuning throughout the process until the client is satisfied with the resulting documentation. Typically produced during conceptual design are layouts, elevations and renderings of the work. Followed by design development and once that is approved by the client the design responsibilities continue. The next phase involves approvals by government authorities or private parties having jurisdiction. This may also involve initially for an EIA (environment impact assessment) that can take many months to complete and be approved, this is undertaken by a specialist company with much of the documentation supplied by the architect.
Once all approvals are received (and most often carried out in parallel) are the manufacture of the construction documents which comprise drawings, specifications and sometimes the bidding documents as well if there is not a specialist quantity surveying company employed by the client.
the design phase is completed once the contractor(s) have been selected.
