It all begins with our team listening to your aspirations for the project.
We will assess existing conditions, identify risks and provide a detailed proposal outlining a scope and the estimated cost. You will get a proposal that will help you better understand the required commitments to provide a solid foundation for your project.
Our design approach balances creativity and clarity for a well-defined scope of work and schedule.
After taking the time to learn what you love and by working closely with our design team, we’ll help you identify your aesthetic preferences and desired levels of finish. We can make product/material recommendations and show you elevation or millwork drawings that will help you see what’s possible for your home.
Through the use of technical drawings, we provide you with scenarios depicting physical layouts and associated structural/mechanical requirements. This gives you a more comprehensive picture of the scope of work required.
Disciplined planning secures all required approvals and permits, lines up the resources and establishes the Fixed Price, Fixed Schedule.
By conducting interior design work in parallel with municipal permitting, the potential impact of delays is minimized. Preparation and review of final project documents follow the completion of interior design.
As project scope, specifications, costs and scheduling information evolve over the course of the planning process, we provide you with full transparency by allowing you access to these documents at any time. Final documents – which define the fixed price and schedule commitments – are reviewed and approved.
We know these types of projects can be disruptive so – to help you navigate the process – we’ll provide you with a full briefing on construction logistics including work hours, temporary living requirements, neighbour notifications, movement of belongings, bin locations, temporary washroom locations, site safety and security, site access, handling of pets, etc.
