Planning & Design:
During client's first meeting, we begin the process to establish the scope of the project. client requirements & preferences and client budget. Study of Architectural Plans and site verification of all dimensions. If no as-built plans exist, we will prepare necessary plans. Furniture Plans are drawn and presented to the client for approval. A Preliminary Budget Analysis is prepared for all fumishings. Conceptual Drawings are used to further develop the design concept. Design Scheme Presentation is inclusive of plans. sketches,samples,tear sheets and pictures of furnishings,and other visual aids to communicate the design concept.
Proposals are prepared and presented on all approved selections needing to be ordered. Upon approval of the proposal, clients are asked to sign and return a copy of the proposal with payment for the amount specified.
Purchase Orders are prepared for vendors to place client orders with specifications, attached cuttings or samples including scale drawings where necessary, for better understanding of custom orders.
Order Monitoring and Coordination includes designer's oversight of all merchandise orders. This may include workroom visits. progress checks,construction clarification and vendor inspections.
