Insurance

Is your company insured?

Yes, we carry full Professional Indemnity Insurance.

Project Process

What is the project process?

1. Initial Contact
At the time of the initial phone or email query, general information about the project will be gathered and an appointment made for a consultation meeting.

2. During the Design Consultation
A visit to the customers home to meet and establish relations with the client, to be given a detailed brief and to have a first-hand chance to walk through the home.

This provides me with a general feel for how best a client brief might be met. An innovative design solution starts from identifying the best layout and use of new and existing space, working around obstacles, working around issues like poor orientation to deliver the best come. Using creative, innovative thinking combined with many years of design experience, I will advise on an optimal solution for you.

3. After the Design Consultation
Detailed fixed price quote will be prepared awaiting client questions and or approval.

4. Project initiation – Measurement Survey
Once the quote is accepted, an appointment will be made to visit the property and collect the necessary data on site (measurement survey) for the project. After the survey, a survey plan (base) is produced and then followed with design solution options.

5. Option Exploration
In this phase, the client will provide feedback on the various design solutions options.

6. Finalising the design plan
After a design solution is reached, if it is a planning permission project, submission pack will be prepared and sent to the local council for the planning process.

7. Preparation of detailed electrical, heating layouts, general fit out specifications to suit the client and the intended build environment

A meeting will take place to walk through the client requirements and details will be added to the construction plan.

Preparation of detailed heating and electrical layouts schedule of internal finishes, floor, wall and ceiling, detailed schedule/inventory of contractors works tasks and client works tasks. Providing this level of detail on the construction drawings at the tender stage greatly reduces the risk of unbudgeted variations, extras and ultimately additional costs arising at the end of the project.

During what hours are you available to meet customers?

I am available to meet customers during business hours (daytime) and evening hours (on special request).

Cleanup

Do you remove rubbish arising from project?

N/A

Is cost of rubbish removal included in the quotation?

N/A

Aftercare

Can you provide ongoing maintenance and support?

Yes, we are always here to answer any post-project queries if they should arise.
