We look forward to meeting you!
Having been briefed, we will prepare a design concept in a broad outline enabling you to see, feel and understand the space we are looking to create with you. We present space planning options and initial interior concepts, layered with preliminary selections showing proposed finishes and fittings, samples of materials intended to be used and design direction for joinery, etc. All in sufficient detail to enable you to approve the design direction.
At this stage, we will prepare working drawings, specifications and other technical documents necessary for the execution of the project, liaise with other consultants and integrate their documentation
After final sign off of the documentation and costing, our drawings and schedules are issued for construction.
APPRAISAL + PROJECT BRIEFING
This is an initial consultation, where we establish your brief, requirements and aspirations, the scope of work and your budget – this guides the design process.
After approval of the design, we will develop the concept sufficiently to co-ordinate the work and services of consultants and specialists who have been appointed.
We will advise you on the feasibility of the project as designed, the estimated cost, the budget and time schedule.
CONSTRUCTION + CO-ORDINATION
This is the stage where the design starts to take shape and becomes a reality. We manage all aspects of the project, ensuring it is successfully executed- we attend site, consultant and client meetings, procure furniture and smalls and facilitate with the installation and final styling before handing over the completed project to you.
