A brief is formed by outlining key objectives, assessing design and construction programs, and setting the intention for the project ahead. This phase includes our Design Session, where we do all the listening – we need (and want!) to understand everything about how you live, and how you want to live if its your home, for commercial projects we need to understand everything about your business, your plan for the future, your target market and your inspirations.
Schematic design is designer-speak for gathering and refining ideas to develop a unique design concept (scheme) for your home and your business. We deployed the latest 3D software so you can visualize the project before its built.
Design + development
Here you’ll see the schematic ideas translated into a visual design solution. Basically, sh*t’s getting real. We create a preliminary drawing package that clearly communicates the design intent across joinery, finishes, fittings and lighting
Here we resolve exactly how our plans will be built, through detailed drawings and digital 3D models. These become the comprehensive instructions that builders and manufacturers need. Everything’s to code, of course, and sufficient for building permits and certification.
This is when we find the right builder to suit your project’s needs. We have the tough conversations on your behalf and analyse prices alongside budget and project objectives. Changes may be made to the design to ensure we’re sticking to the initial budget.
CONSTRUCTION & PROJECT MANAGEMENT
We liaise directly with builders, trades. We’ll solve any issues that might crop up as construction takes place, but we’ll be on site often to keep an eye on developments and to ensure our design issue is resolved.
