Survey and sketch scheme
Firstly we’ll compose a brief from our initial meeting, which we’ll send you for your approval. We’ll then visit your site and draw up a survey of your space(s) to create a set of existing plans, which we’ll use as a basis to create your plan proposal.
We'll then create an initial sketch scheme design with options if relevant. This will vary depending on the project but will typically include sketch plan ideas, sketches, mood boards, sample and colour ideas, furniture ideas, and graphic proposals as appropriate. We'll then meet with you to talk you through our proposal.
Full scheme design
At this stage we would take your feedback from the sketch scheme, and develop it into a final scheme. We'll produce more detailed plans, elevations if relevant, visuals, sample boards & a furniture scheme.
If your project necessitates we can produce drawings for your local planning authority, in order to obtain the relevant planning permission. We'll also create any drawings required to gain building control approval. We'll submit the drawings, and liaise with the officers on any matters that need attention/ revision.
Once planning approval is granted, we’ll create a set of drawings and information documents for the people who are going to build your project. This will include a CAD drawing package for the contractors & shop fitters, and documents detailing the furniture, finishes etc for suppliers.
At this point, we'll meet and interview potential contractors and sub contractors, such as mechanical, electrical & shop fitters etc. who'd like to tender for your project. We'll send out tender packs, check tender submissions, and negotiate any alterations to achieve the savings you need to appoint your contractor.
Project management/ site supervision
We'll be your eyes and ears on site as the project is built. We'll liaise with the contractors and subcontractors on site to make sure they are creating the scheme you want. We’ll also liaise with the building control officer to ensure they are happy with the project's development.
Graphics / signage
As part of the package we can offer you a graphic identity. Designing and overseeing the production of any graphic elements in your scheme, from your signage to letterheads and menus.
