COMMERCIAL : INTERIOR DESIGN

Today’s commercial interiors demand thought and attention. My aim is to help you create an inspiring and functional environment to improve efficiency as well as attract and retain high calibre people.

Design process:

• space analysis
• design brief
• basic building survey
• space planning
• test fit solutions
• presentation boards
• 3D imaging
• furniture survey
• product research and specification
• tender documentation
• construction documentation
• as built documentation

I start the interior design process by undertaking a detailed design brief to determine your fitout scope, budget and level of finish. Based on this information I do a space analysis and planning of your business premises; develop the look and feel of the designed space and present the proposed concept(s) through computer generated drawings, images and sample finishes.  Should the proposed commercial works require building permission,  I may have to involve another professional depending on how complicated the sought permission is.

I also always try to design the interiors with a few key principles in mind, such as optimising natural light, selecting appropriate colour schemes, utilising correctly sized furniture and specifying artwork or finishing touches. In designing the workspaces, it is important to achieve a well resolved and bespoke design that adds value through:

• favourable impressions from clients and guests alike
• improved staff morale
• increased work efficiency

At the documentation stage, plans with specifications are drawn and prepared for tender and construction purposes and include electrical, voice, data and plumbing services.

Once contractors have been selected and appointed, I like to work closely with them, the suppliers and manufacturers – I strongly believe this collaborative approach delivers the best results.
