Our Project Steps

Initial Consultation

Everything starts with a consultation and meeting of minds. We need to know what you want to achieve, so we can come up with a design that tells your story.

Evaluate Site Condition & Essential Services

Evaluate the site to make sure the site/tenancy is suitable for your business. And assess the site condition & essential services to get fully prepared for future design.

Concept Design

With a clear vision, familiarity with the merits of a site, and your input, we are now ready to get more creative by drafting an initial series of concept sketches.

Permit Application

All permissions and approvals must be secured before any building work can begin to ensure everything is legal and the project can proceed unimpeded.

Documentation

It’s crucial to ensure all documentation are perfectly executed and in order for streamlined operations and project execution.

Design Development

We will use our unique ability to translate your vision, brand and culture into a design that truly represents your brand and story.

Contract Administration

After working out all the kinks, we can refine the details of the contract before signing on the dotted line.

Construction

Finally, building work commences. We oversee the project we have worked on together to ensure it is built according to your exact requirements.

Project Management

All factors affecting the construction of a project need to be managed effectively to ensure its completion on time and within budget.
