The following is a documentation list of the core stages that will be involved in our architectural service relevant to the clients brief and project size. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Concept/ Predesign Phase Preliminary design documentation for Resource Consent Developed and Detailed design for Building Consent Detail Design Documentation for Construction Procurement Contract Administration

1. CONCEPT/ PREDESIGN PHASE After the initial consultation, agreeing on a design brief and an indicative budget we would organise a conceptual set of drawings which would include the following: C.T (Boundaries identified) Sketch Floor & Site plans Freehand Sketches 3D Perspectives L.I.M Defined Project Brief

A landscape sketch plan from the elected Landscape designer may also be provided to coincide with the conceptual phase Contractual Agreements and Preliminary Fee Indications

2. PRELIMINARY DESIGN/ RESOURCE CONSENT The concept design is then developed further with a higher level of detail eventually reaching to the required level of documentation for Resource Consent (RC). This would include the following: Scaled CAD format Site plans, Floor plans, Elevations and Sections indicating all relevant planning information required for RC (Existing and Proposed) Project information memorandum (Highlights required planning issues) A planning report (Organised by us or a nominated planning professional) Resource Consent Application Forms A project estimate (Organised by ourselves or a Quantity Surveyor)

3. DEVELOPED & DETAILED DESIGN/ BUILDING CONSENT The resource consent can still be processing as we move onto this next phase. Once we have agreed and finalised a design we can proceed with a full set of working drawings and specifications for the building consent submission. This would include the altered drawings from Stage 2 and the following: Building Consent Application and Checklist (Includes Certificate of Title and PIM) Site, Drainage, Floor, Foundation, Roof, Bracing, Electrical and Lighting Plans Elevations, Cross Sections, Schematics, Architectural & Civil Details Architectural Specifications Geotechnical Report, Calcs. and Producer Statement (By Elected Consultant) Structural Plans, Details, Calcs. and Producer Statement (By Elected Consultant)

After building consent submission, it would be a good time to confirm the project cost estimated in Stage 2.

4. DETAILED DESIGN DOCUMENTATION FOR CONSTRUCTION In addition to the drawings prepared at stage 3 we would include the following: Interior Elevations, Joinery, Cabinetry and Finishes Schedules Exterior Joinery and Finishes Schedule

At the completion of this stage you will receive a full set of architectural plans, specifications and the other consultants plans for the procurement of the construction phase. 5. PROCURMENT Establishing contractual matters for the purpose of construction and tendering. Documentation from Stage 3 and 4 Programme Schedule and Scope of works Registration of interest from Head Contractors (We can suggest our recommended contractors for this size project or you can nominate) Contract Documents (Head Contractor and Client) Tender Documents (These will be sent to the head contractor who will distribute them to elected subcontractors)

6. CONTRACT ADMINISTRATION If requested, this phase involves the contractual and financial administration of the above project. This would include regular site visits and contact with the contractor to aid in construction resolutions. Documentation for this phase would include: As builts Inspection and Site minutes Health and Safety Extension of time records Site instructions Variations Notice to contractors Record of Conversations Contractor Invoices Payment schedules Practical Completion Certificate Defects Notices Code of Compliance Warranties and Guarantees

Other administrative phases will need to be considered also post construction completion. This includes the Defects liability period and Post Construction phase where all accounts will be finalised, feedback and debriefing given.

5B. HOURLY CHARGE OUT RATE (COR) CALCULATIONS

5C. ACTUAL TIME REQUIRED TO DO THE PROJECT

5C-6. TIME DIFFERENCE EXPLANATION There is a difference of 53.43 hours between the actual time required and the provisional time budgeted. There are a number of variations that could generate this difference. The following are a selection of variations and factors that could have influenced the equated numbers: The amount of time per plan at the detailed design stage. If I had allowed more time then the difference would reduce The number of plans. This is an estimate number as the amount of architectural details required could vary and any additional plans that the council require could increase this figure. Or if I have overestimated then this figure would decrease The plan count doesnt allow for administration documentation and specifications. The time difference could be appropriate for this situation. The time difference could be a positive result and seen as a margin or contingency allowance for variations from the client, contractor, council or other unforeseen factors that increase the work load.
