At every stage, we enjoy helping you articulate the spirit of your project through excellence in design and expert project management. The steps below provide you with an overview of how we work with our clients as a project progresses.
An obligation free design consultation is an initial discussion helping us to understand your project and your business. It is the opportunity to get to know you and your desires for your design brief, and give initial response.
We provide you with a detailed quotation based on your brief. The quotation includes a summary of the design brief, listing all aspects and extent of the works we will undertake.
Quotation may be a fixed price per project, a percentage of total project cost or an hourly rate based fee structure, depending on the type of project, and involvement required from our team. We clearly outline our terms of trade and payment structure in this document.
We are always conscious of your budget, and consider this from an early stage, engaging quantity surveyors, builders and joiners where necessary.
A collaborative idea-generating discussion of your brief takes place among our team where imagery and other references become inspirational elements to drive the continuation of the project. Design conceptions may include considering the experience and social implications of the project, overall space planning, and examples of detail. Consequently your project is assigned to one of our experienced designers to produce concept plans.
The concept design may include preliminary sketches, 3D drawings giving a feel of the space, colour and finish selections considering budget constrains and all elements required for function and space planning.
At this stage we begin to liaise with all other consultants and technical service providers, e.g. graphic designer, structural engineer etc, as a team approach to ensuring all areas of the design are covered in this initial stage. Initial concept will also take into account the landlord, local body requirements, and any other parties involved in the project.
