Listening before designing.
The design stages follow from a thorough understanding of my client’s brief and I like to spend as much time as needed on assisting my clients in developing their brief by asking the right questions as this can be of great assistance in unfolding the options available to them.
Cost estimates based on recent projects of a similar nature accompany the early design stages to maintain a reality check and may lead to a re-evaluation of requirements before proceeding to design development. My attention to detail in the construction documentation stage and my comprehensive specification of works ensures a smooth running construction program on site. Construction documentation also involves the selection of internal products and finishes and I enjoy guiding my clients through this process and helping them maintain a style consistency.
Not everyone requires the contract administration stage but it can be a security blanket for clients who live away from the region and who want to ensure that the highest standards are maintained during construction.
