OUR PROCESS

Process

Every project, regardless of size,

follows five basic phases:

These have been thoughtfully developed to guide both the client and designer through each project in a precise organized manner, ensuring successful and complete outcomes. We are happy to provide our clients with an estimated project range of fees and services once the project has been thoroughly discussed.

  • Programming: We listen and collect all pertinent information allowing us to design to our client’s specific needs-functionally, aesthetically, within budget and on time.

  • Schematic Design: In this phase preliminary layouts and an overall interior design concept is presented featuring space plans, products and materials along with any unique observations.

  • Design Development: As the design progresses layouts are finalized for bidding, specific furnishings and finishes are determined and overall budgets are developed so final decisions may be made. Contractors and project schedules are solicited during this phase as well.

  • Construction Documents: Detailed drawings, specifications and budgets based on the approved design are finalized. A project schedule and budget is agreed upon by all parties so the project may commence. 

  • Contract Administration: We stay closely involved with the project through site visits, contractor meetings, order tracking and coordinating various deliveries and installations. A punch list shall be completed prior to completion.
