FULL BESPOKE SERVICE

Following an initial enquiry via a simple contact form outlining the basis of your project, you would book a Discovery Call so we can hear all about your vision, aspirations and the basic requirements for your sustainable project. After this, we would then suggest a site visit (this is chargeable but refunded on the studio’s appointment as your designer on your project),  to get a clear idea of the space. During this meeting, we would also aim to get an idea about your budget, timeframe and to discuss the scope of work in more detail. This would  then give us all the information we require to draw up a fee proposal for our full bespoke service.

1/ BRIEFING 

On the studio’s appointment, we will meet again with you to take a full, detailed brief. We will go through your preferences, likes & dislikes. With a residential project, how you  live your lives now, coupled with how you would like to live in your perfect world. With our commercial clients, we would go through the inner workings of your business, the overall space, who will be using it and what tasks will be carried out within it. This brief will be detailed, formalised and signed off by you, creating the basis of the full design scope for us to undertake. We can also carry out a site survey, to take accurate measurements and electrical & plumbing details to enable us to draw up plans for space planning and detailed CAD drawings.

2/ DESIGN CONCEPT

Working with the information gleaned at the briefing, we commence the design process giving considered, imaginative thought to the project. Firstly we consider the layout and plan the space - offering a number of options for space enhancing the structure, flow and layout of your space. We put together concept image boards to visually describe the overall scheme and feel for the project. Also including our design ideas for key areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and any architectural details. From these we select samples of materials for each surface; create initial furniture and lighting boards; draw up the layout plans and provide rendered perspective sketches where necessary. All of which we present to give an overview of how the proposed space will look at the presentation meeting. We often give 2 options from which the client can choose, depending on how specific the brief is. After the presentation, the clients will then receive a digital copy to keep for their reference & consideration in order to give detailed feedback on all aspects of the initial design, to enable us to move on to the next phase.

3/ DESIGN DEVELOPMENT

Once we have received your feedback, we develop each design idea and put these into place using computer aided design (CAD). We will also start to narrow down the fixtures, fittings and material finishes following your further feedback, to start finalising these. On presentation of this stage you will receive a full set of design drawings, plus an update of the visual concept, from which we will require detailed feedback on all aspects of the design from you. This will include: any changes to structural layout, elevations of each wall where necessary, lighting and electrical (M&E) plans, detailed drawings for any bespoke items and a full schedule of works on a spreadsheet, listing all the elements to be carried out by the contractor.

4/ TENDER PROCESS

Once we receive the full and final feedback ‘sign off’ from you on the development phase, we put any outstanding amendments into action,  to create the final ‘Tender Pack’. It is from this tender pack that we invite contractors to submit their quote  (ideally directly onto the itemised spreadsheet!), to be considered for appointment to your project.  We have a roster of tried and trusted contractors that we like to work with and can suggest in order for you to find the right match for your project. Whether you go for one of these or work with your preferred choice, we can help you with this process by giving guidance.

5/BUDGET

We can help you with your budget allocation for the procurement phase to give you a clearer idea of where to apportion the budget across the project

6/ SOURCING/PROCUREMENT

Through our ever growing, eclectic range of sustainable suppliers and knowledge of products, we provide a sourcing and procurement service, via a transparent procurement schedule; which will provide stylish, quality & considered items for your project. We receive trade discounts up to 40% which we pass on to you. We are here to obtain quotes, comparisons, process orders and organise deliveries to you. We cover our time for this by applying an admin fee to the trade price.

7/ CONSTRUCTION

We will always recommend an initial on site kick off meeting with the contractor and his team to go through all details on the design drawings and the full scope of works throughout the space.

8/ DESIGN MANAGEMENT

Throughout the project’s build, we can manage all the design elements for you, both on and off site, to ensure all the site works adhere to the final designs. We will monitor the quality of the work and check the materials and finishes used, including all purchased items are delivered safely on site . Also included in this part of the service is managing any after sales issues with suppliers, should there be any problems after the point of sale. This is quite useful for those who may be low on time or wish to have absolute peace of mind. 

If you choose to manage the build stage of the project yourself, we can be there for you on a consultation basis to assist if necessary.

9/ STYLING

To complete the project, we can help with adding those finishing touches, by accessorising any last details to complete the overall scheme or advise on the best ways to style your space, if required. We like to photograph all our finished projects for marketing purposes, as well as our website and portfolio. As a gesture of goodwill, we share the final images to our clients, as a parting gift in appreciation for facilitating this.

10/ FEES

Our fees for our bespoke full service, to cover all phases as laid out above, are based on the square meterage of the space, combined with our scope of work. To find out more about our services and how they might best serve your requirements, book a discovery call with myself, Timna Rose
