Commercial Design Process

Our design process is where we turn your needs and wishes into a functional and practical space that services those needs. Developing the design is critical to ensure the long and short term usability of the space as well as giving you design features that are individual and exciting.

The stages below give you an indication of the process

Stage 1 – Initial Brief

Gathering of your needs and wishes to develop a brief that allows us to develop a design suitable for your needs. We will ascertain the requirements for spaces and uses of those spaces, specific materials or furniture you may wish to use. We also investigate for future growth and development of the site or building.


Stage 2 – Proposal

A detailed proposal will be submitted outlining our services and fees and timing. Optional services that may suit your project are also included so you have the option of choosing the services you require.


Stage 3 – Concept Development

Layout drawings are prepared based on the initial brief for comment. Additional information may be added at this stage such as security considerations, services, consultants required, technology integration. the layout is developed into a scaled 3D design to ensure practical flow through spaces, efficient space use, use of natural light and amenities and a sure fit with the companies workplace culture.

Photo realistic images and 3D walkthroughs are available for marketing, management approvals and visualization of the project.


┬áStage 4 – Documentation
