Phases

 

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

A completed Construction Package is prepared including detailed final Floor Plans, Joinery drawings and an elevated Schedule procurement in readiness for Builder or Developer tendering.

Phase 5 – Construction Period

During the projects Tendering process GMD can facilitate Tender reviews with yourselves and the potential appointed builders. GMD can assist the clients in ensuring the designed outcome is realized onsite. Our services during construction period are liaising with builder and consultants, assessing shop drawings and attending site and defects inspections as requested.

Phase 6 – Furniture Lighting and Styling Procurement

While not all projects require the full transformation, we enjoy welcoming a procured and curated selection of styled furniture items to compliment your enhanced environment. We take the stress out of assembling the collection producing detailed schedules for potential selections. Beyond presenting, shop items you at your request. We issue our GMD trade discounts to our clients.
