Starter Design Packages
starting with a Pre-Design Consultation
Every project collaboration with home & business owners begins with a Pre-Design Consultation.
This service is our foundation & we will get to know you and your project in detail. Prior to our meeting, we provide you with a detailed questionnaire to complete in a complementary copy of Corey's Project eBook. We want to understand the activities, spaces, site limitations, and the users of the space - whether it be family or customers - based off your inspiration, investment allocation, and timeline. Within 2 weeks, we outline a detailed Proposal for Design & Consultation Services that identifies a project brief, our menu of services, design fees, and design schedule.
A nominal fee of $650 incl. 5% GST applies to this first step & you can book below.
Our Creative Design Process
Each of our design phases contain 2 steps and there are 6 steps in total.
Phase I - Conceptual
The want a functional, beautiful home & this phase is where the all the heavy designing happens.
Step 1 - Create the Concepts. We first work along side you you to create the customized design solution based upon the information gathered. This step involves research, space planning, hand-sketching, and
Step 2 - Tender the Project. We then prepare a complete Schematic Package that is sent to Contractors to tender the project. Although the drawings we prepare are still conceptual at this stage, Contractors submit their tenders and the project budget is fully assessed.
Phase II - Execution
You hired a Contractor so it's time to get down to business and execute the details.
Step 3 - Prepare Working Drawings. We begin by developing the Working Drawings to review and approve, outlining all the details and 3D views, and this first step is free of notes and details.
Step 4 - Issue Contract Documents. Following your approval, we complete the 'Contract Documents' (legal documents) that contain the Construction Drawings and Product Specifications.
Phase III - Administration
A construction site is dynamic with many variables, we are your advocate while work commences.
Step 5 - Design Administration. During this step, we meet with the Contractor before work commences in a Pre-Construction Conference. Through the rest of the project, we answer inquiries, visit the project site to ensure conformance, and walk-thru with you to complete a Punch List.
Step 6 - Purchasing & Custom Orders. We order cabinetry, custom furnishings & drapery, lighting, and more. We manage our orders, schedule deliveries & installations. This step is often taken by our clients because we ensure a cohesive look.
