Service that stands out — From preplanning through construction support, Claycomb is there for you every step of the way.

All the Service You Need from a School Architect you can Trust

We provide a range of comprehensive services that are available to you at no additional charge no matter where you are in the facility planning process. Our offerings include pre-design, design, and construction support services.

Pre-Design Services

Pre-design is critical to generating community support for your district’s building program. We have the technical information you need to make informed decisions on key issues, such as facility utilization, enrollment triggers, and cost estimates. We also have extensive experience facilitating stakeholder planning meetings, ensuring input and buy-in from key community members.

We staff a team of bond issue support specialists that can help pass your bond. They are supplemented by our in-house graphics department to create all the print and digital campaign materials you need to inform your voting community.

Our pre-design services include:

  • District-Wide Master Planning
  • Facility Master Planning
  • Facility Assessments
  • Feasibility Studies
  • Budget Analysis
  • Bond Planning
  • Stakeholder Engagement Committees
  • Bond Election Assistance
  • Bond Passage Support
  • Community Relations Assistance

Design Services

Our design service starts with gaining an understanding your instructional program and your student goals.  We do not bring pre-conceived design ideas to you.  Instead, we work with you to create a design that is unique to your district.  This ensures that your facility will meet the needs of your students and reflect the values of your community.

We supplement our design service with concept renderings for Board approval every step of the way.

Once your design is approved, we produce detailed drawings and assist you with selecting a contractor and securing bids for your project.

Our design services include:

  • Educational Programming
  • Educational Specifications
  • Schematic Design
  • Design Development
  • Construction Documents
  • Bidding and Negotiation

Construction Support Services

During construction, we believe hands-on oversight is the only way to ensure your interests are met. We do not delegate construction administration responsibilities.  As a result, our projects consistently stay within budget and are built to your specifications.

Our construction support services include:

  • Jobsite Presence and Project Coordination
  • Owner/Architect/Construction Manager Meetings
  • Monthly Board Updates
  • Online Project Documentation
