Step 1 – Design Brief Stage

The consultation phase starts with identifying the client's requirements and objectives. A Questionnaire is given to the client to understand the specific function(s) of the space, user profiles and furniture & equipment requirements. Measurements, plans and photographs are also requested. Based on the above, a design brief is created which forms the basis for further working.


Step 2 - Schematic Design Stage

Taking the design brief as the base; in the schematic design stage, preliminary space planning and furniture layouts are designed. Circulation patterns and minimum clearances are considered and applied to the floor plan accordingly. Rough sketches, elevations & 3D views are created; finishes are also suggested and the whole scheme and various options are presented to the client for first review.


Step 3 - Design Development

After final approval of the schematic design from the various options presented to the client, floor plans, elevations and other related items are developed in greater detail. Colours and finishes are refined, furniture, fabrics and equipment are selected and Bill of Quantity(BOQ) is prepared. The entire set of documents are again presented to the client for review, revision and final approval.


Step 4 – ‘Good for construction’ (GFC) documents

At the start of this stage, a detailed set of Good for construction’ (GFC) drawings are created. These include details  like electrical, plumbing, HVAC, Reflected Ceiling plans (RCP) finishes schedule etc. A total scope of work is defined along with the final BOQ. These documents are then floated to receive bids from contractors. These are the same documents that are issued to the contractors for execution.


Step 5 - Execution

In this stage based on the GFC’s issued, constructions is carried out by the contractor. Site supervison is carried out at regular intervals to ensure complete adherence to the GFC.
