HOW WE WORK

DISCOVERY MEETING

Each project starts with a consultation charge then a scheduled initial meeting with the client at the property. This is an initial opportunity to discuss the project in detail and take the brief. During the discovery meeting, we learn about the client’s personality, their style and their individual lifestyle, tastes, and aspirations – in essence, to learn what is important to them in creating the new scheme so that the finished project is a true reflection of them. This is also an opportunity to ensure that any issues are identified and discussed before work commences on the project. We’d also discuss outline budgets and time scale so that the project can progress smoothly. This meeting is followed up with a mood board and 2d layout to the client. We believe that it is very important to engage and work together with our clients as the project evolves.

 

CONCEPT DESIGN

In response to the client’s brief, a concept scheme is created for discussion. This will be presented in the form of draft layouts showing space utilization, any structural modifications, and furniture layouts. We produce mood boards to demonstrate color schemes, wall, and window treatments along with options for fabrics and finishes. At this stage, we produce a draft Cost Plan that includes provisional sums for any works along with an outline program.

 

DETAIL DESIGN

Once all elements in the concept design are agreed with the client, the project moves to the Detail Design and Specification and 3d visualization stage. Every element of the scheme is designed and specified for the client to sign-off. Samples are presented for discussion and client approval. We can arrange for the client to see/feel all specified items as relevant. At this stage, we also can propose, curate, and install accessories as required.

 

PROCUREMENT OR EXECUTION

Once the detailed design has been agreed a detailed cost plan is presented and shared privately online. This sets out the cost of each individual element per room and a summarised project total. To give our clients the best value, within the procurement service, all items are supplied with the benefit of discounts as available. A procurement fee is charged to manage every stage of the procurement process from price/delivery negotiation through production/delivery/quality management, in order to maintain the program and to deal with any post-delivery issues that may arise.

 

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

The overall program is drawn up and agreed with the client. Progress of the project is managed and monitored on-site on a regular basis and any issues arising in the course of the project are resolved in a timely and pragmatic manner in order to maintain quality and program. Any snagging issues are resolved quickly and efficiently to the client’s satisfaction.

 

HANDOVER

With construction and decoration completed we arrange for a full site clean before installing and setting up other interior pieces. We then coordinate the delivery and positioning of all furniture and furnishings. We often curate artwork and accessories at this stage as well, to create the finished look, or we can dress your new interior with your existing treasures, to give each space your own personal stamp.
