How We Work
1. Initial Meeting
The initial meeting is where we talk more about your project vision. Taking into account the site location, the basic needs and space requirements, the design direction. This is where you do the talking, we do the listening.
2. Proposal & Agreement
After we gather all the information needed, we will propose a proposal to let you know how we work, the timeline, along with our design fee. If agreeable, we can move forward to start our design.
3. Concept Design
The concept design stage is where we get personal. We will create the design according to the brief and have a lot of discussions with you on looks, feels, functionality, and etc. As we want to be collaborative, we would love to have your opinions on board and implement that into our design.
For commercials, we usually take into account the branding guidelines and implement them into the architectural and interior design.
4. Construction Drawing
The construction drawings stage is where we get technical. We will provide the drawings that can act as a guideline for the contractor to build your project.
Depending on the project, we would collaborate with other consultants, such as: structural engineers, MEP (Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing) engineers, and Eco / Sustainability design and engineers. These people will help engineer your project to let it function effectively and efficiently.
5. Choosing Contractor
After our Construction Drawings are finished, we will share them to several contractors and compare them. We will be there for you to advise in choosing of which contractors to choose, depending on the material specs and your budget.
6. Project Supervision
Building a project is not easy. We always want to deliver what we have put into design to reality. That’s why we usually cooperate with our contractors to visit the project during the important moments.
The period is usually vary from once every 2 weeks or twice per week, depending on the project’s progress.
