THE DESIGN PROCESS
6 Architectural Work Stages
1 - Inception: Here the Project Brief and scope of work is defined in conjunction with a realistic project programme that outlines various construction milestones.
2 - Design Concept and Viability: Here various design proposals would be prepared for client approval in order to determine the viability of the project.
3 - Design Development: Here the design would start to be finalised in order to start detailed drawings and costings of the proposed project.
4.1 - Council Documentation: Here your registered Architect would obtain approved building plans of your project from the relevant local authourity.
4.2 - Construction Documentation:
Here your architect would prepare technical drawings and specifications for the contractor.
5 - Construction and Site Inspection:
At this milestone your construction building works and progress would be monitored to ensure compliance to the local authority requirements as well as to maintian quality.
6 - Close Out:
At this stage the construction work would be complete and the architect would obtain all your operating manuals as well as compile an as-built drawing. Futhermore, all COC's (certificates of complaince) and the OC (Occupation Certificate) would be ontained for the client.
