Plan and Program a Project - Meet with the client and discuss the scope of the project and create a list of needs and wants as well as a timeline for implementing the project.
This could be a joint meeting between architect, designer, builder and client.
Layout and Schematics - Measure, prepare or capture from other sources the required plans and develop choices of direction for the client. This could involve visual architectural direction.
Full Documentation AutoCAD and Hand Drawn - Once a direction is established we would then draw up specific plans laying out the space and review with the client the relationship of everything in the space, i.e. base plans, furniture, electrical furniture, and lighting.
Architectural Detailing - Develop plans for custom cabinetry, paneling, molding, doors & trim, etc. This could involve specific detailing of architectural elements collaborating with the architect and builder.
Full Specifications - Specifications of electrical fixtures, appliances, plumbing, HVAC grills etc. This could involve coordination with the architect, builder and related subcontractors
Interior Decorating and Expediting - Prepare floorcovering, paint, wallcovering and drapery plans, tile and stone specification and related details. This involves interaction between designer, subcontractors and workrooms.
Furnishings and Accessories - Selection of furnishings, fabrics, accessories, rugs, art, etc. This involves the selection, tracking, receiving, inspection and installation of all elements.
The process varies based on the size of the overall project. Something we always keep in mind is the quote "God is in the details", and documentation is our Bible.
