Clients often do not know what to do during the interior design process, so we put our guide into the 9 interior design work steps that we undertake in our residential, hospitality or commercial projects.
These core work steps are designed to wrap around the work plan of RIBA, the definitive Indian model for designing and building manufacturing processes. On small projects we adapt to the stages.
This initial phase of the project includes preliminary studies of the site or property. We will find out more about you and your design ambitions for the project, along with your timeschool and budget, we will work with you to create a detailed brief and identify your design preferences.
Concept design is the beginning of the creative process. As we begin investigating finishes, design styles and effects, we develop architectural layouts for your property. We will create render and early 3D models describing the volumetric aspects of the design.
During the design development phase we come into detail of the plan. We will refine the interior layout and specify the major finishes and materials for finals, walls, furniture, etc., while we define lighting concepts and M&E requirements for the final design.
With the design signed, we move on to the technical design phase, where we create a coordinated, fully detailed, technical build pack for the project, which includes downtechings on refurbs and all proposed new details for the build.
We’ve completed the construction details so next we will develop fully detailed finishes schedules and FF&E specifications for every area in the property, designing out joinery, sanitary and electrical requirements for the Tender process.
As the stages of detail design are completed, the tender process begins. We work with your design team to advise you on the best form of contract and suitable contractors. Together, we will issue tender packs and develop construction schedules.
Once the contractor is appointed, we will start workshops to review design proposals with them in detail and advise on any specialist sub-contracted elements of the project, helping them to raise resources as needed.
While the project is on site we will work closely with the contractors and FF&E supply chain to achieve the successful implementation of our design along with the installation and commissioning of all the associated FF&E.
As soon as the project ends, we will visit the site to inspect all the works and prepare a schedule of faults, if necessary, we will suggest remedies for the faults and the project manager in preparing and issuing practical completion certificates would help.
