Phase 1 - Consultation + Assessment
The first step is to visit your commercial space for a consultation and site assessment to help determine your needs for the project. No two spaces are alike and the assessment is a very important step to uncover what is important to you, any hot button issues, and your style and functional needs. This is a working appointment that lasts up to two hours, where we provide you with ideas, recommendations and guidance for the project. We will talk about layouts, materials, budgets, timeline, trade resources, priorities, our letter of agreement, and how we work and communicate with you during the design process.
Phase 2 - Conceptual + Schematics
Our design team develops conceptual 2D layouts to strategize and resolve any known issues, as well as to address your style and functional needs based on your budget and time-frame for completion. We present these ideas to you in person onsite; walking through all the features and options. One revision is included. We deliver a full set of schematics that you can present to your qualified contractors for bids.This phase is billed at a flat rate based on the project size and type.
We are happy to work directly with your General Contractors or recommend our trusted trade resources. Permits are not included in your flat fee
Phase 3 - Materials Selection + Interior Detailing
The next step is to select the materials and finishes for your project based on your style, company's brand and functional needs. We have relationships with some of Atlanta's, as well as the nation's finest suppliers of cabinetry, hardware, countertops, flooring, lighting, plumbing, appliances and wallcoverings. We will schedule meetings at our trade showrooms or bring samples to your site. To make the best use of your time, and streamline the process, we pre-select all finish materials for your approval. You can share this information with your General Contractor for materials ordering. One revision is included. This phase is billed at a flat fee depending on your project needs
Phase 4 - Project Oversight + Site Visits
This is an optional part of the process if you would like for us to oversee trades, liaise with your General Contractor to maintain the integrity of the project, and ensure that the right materials are being installed. Construction projects are very involved, and it helps to have a checks and balance system to keep the project on track. The idea is for everyone involved to work together for the common goal of producing a beautiful, and high quality product that you will love, and enjoy for years to come.
We will make regular site visits and walk throughs - either weekly or twice per week and provide you with a written report of site conditions, and any communications with the General Contractor. We can also meet with you on site if there are change orders or other decisions that need to be made.
This phase is billed in time blocks in advance based on your project needs
Phase 5 - Furniture Specifications + Interior Styling
In this phase we work to get your Commercial space to become part of your branding.
All furnishings, window coverings, accents, accessories and art are selected for your approval.
We bring our design expertise and project management skills as needed on your project. We work with your chosen general contractor, or we are happy to recommend our trusted design/build professionals and skilled artisans and trades to ensure a successful completion of your project.
