    what our client should expect with restaurant interior design and hotel interior design.

    What should our clients expect for our complete interior design service

    Our Interior Design Process is based on small to medium-sized projects:

    Detailed client brief

    Assess the situation – have preliminary talks with planning authority if required

    Site Survey - measure and analysis (information gathered to produce floor plans)

    Concepts / initial design work for client approval (visualisation, hand-drawn sketches, 3D models and CGI rendering)

    Design development - draw up floor plans, space planning & furniture layout

    Branding design - for hotel and restaurant interior designs, we work closely with graphic designers to develop your brand that works seamlessly with your new interior design scheme

    Lighting design - produce a reflected ceiling plan layout

    Sourcing materials gather samples for relevant presentation boards

    Preparing supporting visuals such as sections, elevations & sketches if required

    Furniture sourcing vital at this stage, check stock levels, availability and delivery times

    Budget costing

    Production of working drawings, specifications, schedule of works & tender documents for all trades if using individual companies.

    Firm up estimates

    Order building materials, hard floorings, sanitary ware - everything necessary for the structural stage

    Order lighting, decorating materials, furniture (could take up to 12 weeks, depending on suppliers stock levels), fabrics (could take up to 2 weeks) and accessories • Formal application made to Planning authorities if required

    Appointment of contractors/letters of agreement/contract acceptance

    Produce job programme and time-table

    Regular site supervision

    Structural work: demolition and building, first installation plumbing, first fix electrics, hard flooring installed, sanitary ware and so on at this stage, which will be followed by preparation and redecoration.

    Supervision of redecoration; preparation followed by decoration. Starting with the top floor and work down and to begin with ceilings within a room.

    Built-in furniture installation or floor sanding should be done between preparation and final decoration.

    Flooring contractors, curtain makers and other specialist makers may have to return for final measurements at this stage. Second fix electrics.

    Installation of furniture and furnishings if required – for example, flooring/ carpet laying

    Decorating: delivery and positioning of furniture, hanging and dressing of window treatments (includes the fitting of poles and tracks etc). Hanging artwork and accessorising and dressing the room with plants, mirrors, decorative objects
