Phase 1 – Pre Concept
Post appointment, we conduct a high-level project briefing to establish the project requirements and our clients’ inclusions wish-list. We undertake a site visit and site measure, depending on location, capturing interior and exterior existing conditions while liaising with established or potential consultants. On occasion, we’re able to attain original Floor Plans from past site works, we can utilize the provided to create our GMD preliminary Floor Plans.
We begin to explore concept directions through an imagery look and feel package evoking design motives and theories for a rich and considered palette assisting our future concept designs.
Phase 2 – Concept
Our proposed Floor Plans are complimented by a three dimensional generated Concept Model which animates our proposed designs. The Modelled outcome prescribes forms, finishes, fixtures, fittings and importantly, conjures a sense of the human scale. The interactive process closely relates to the proposed selection of finishes.
Phase 3 – Documentation
Our approved Concept design is realized in a complete documented suite of Floor Plans and detailed Joinery drawings. We establish and populate project Schedules inclusive of Fixtures, Fittings, Finishes, Lighting, Door Hardware, Window Furnishing, or as required.
Phase 4 – Construction Detail Documentation

Our services during construction period are liaising with builder and consultants, assessing shop drawings and attending site and defects inspections as requested.
