PHASE I : CONCEPT DESIGN

Is a collaborative process with the owner to design and establish a tree dimensional concept of the client’s desires and development goals. Some optional of 3 dimension images and a study maket ( if needed ) will be shown, to be chosen and continue to the next process.

 

PHASE II : SCHEMATIC DESIGN

During this stage, the  firmed concept will be  in a set of preliminary schematic design drawings, which portrays the idea in its three-dimensional form and space. When complete it will present its approximate built area,  its spatial lay outs, intended construction materials, textures, color and the general feel and form of the building.

The stage will show site plans, interior lay outs, elevation and sections as well as preliminary building plans sections and elevations, which also has already including the provision of permit code from the local government.

 

PHASE III : DESIGN DEVELOPMENT

Based on an approved set of schematic design, and preliminary consultation, IDD will work with other design consultants to coordinate all design disciplines into a set of design development drawings. Design development drawings will clearly identify built areas, engineering requirements and the inclusion of all the architectural and other design and engineering disciplines.

Building permit submission uses these design development drawings. This process involves the combined submissions from architects, structural and civil engineers and mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineers.

IDD will also be working with the Quantity Surveyors to accurately estimate cost of construction, measuring built areas, evaluating construction methods and materials, performance of equipment and the building itself.

 

PHASE IV : CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENT, DETAIL PLANS, CONSTRUCTION DETAILS AND SPECIFICATIONS

This stage marks the preparation of all design and technical specifications for a construction contract documentation. Final coordination between design and project consultants is documented. Discussions with contractors and suppliers to evaluate various detail issues of the project are carried out and included in the final documentation.

In this stage IDD will produce a complete design, details drawings and specifications for construction including the selection and schedules of building materials, components, equipment, paint and material color, hardware and so on, are included in this phase of work.

 

PHASE V : CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION

Project pro-active participation in the interpretation of design intent during construction, will assist to achieve a safe, quality and high standard of design. Complex projects with professional competence.

 

 

INTERIOR DESIGN SERVICES

 

PHASE I : PLANNING AND CONCEPT

During this phase, an initial visit to the site should be undertaken. IDD will meet with the Client to establish design criteria, design program and progress schedule. It is also during this phase that IDD with the client to discuss the project in detail, including design concepts, desired atmosphere, and any special requirement. Through collaboration with the Client, (the Construction Manager, the Quantity Surveyor and other Design Consultants) we will assist in establishing the budget estimate for the work.

Planning and concept will start with a schematic space planning in coordination with Client.

After approval of schematic space plans an initial presentation of design will be prepared. Initial layout plans for the interior spaces as outlined in the Scope of Work, probably hand drawn rather than CAD will be done with “mood boards” photographs and sketches indicating probable design styles. Loose presentation of proposed materials, and finishes for the Fixed Décor (floor, wall and ceiling) interior finishes may be included.

Coordination with other Consultants i.e. Acoustic, Lighting, Mechanical and Electrical, will be already an ongoing exercise during this phase. They prepare preliminary information of space requirement and propose plant location to the designer.

 

PHASE II : DESIGN DEVELOPMENT

During this phase, IDD will review the approved Phase I drawings, layouts and material with the Client, Architect and other consultant to assure all existing conditions are accounted for and to explain any aspects as required.

Refined Layout plans will be prepared as well as elevations to best convey the approved design concepts. In addition, developed FFE (Furniture, Fitting & Equipment), Joinery finishes as well as Fixed Décor (floor wall and ceiling treatments) finishes will be presented on material and colour boards to further characterize the project. These may be A2 or A1 size.

Preliminary quotations for FF&E items, will be sourced by IDD based on design directions agreed on during Phase I. The budget shall be reviewed with the Client, (Client's Quantity Surveyor and other Consultants) to assure conformance between the Phase I concepts, Phase II design development and original budget.

 

PHASE III : CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTATION (WORKING DRAWINGS AND SPECIFICATIONS)

This phase encompasses the preparation of FF&E Final Selections, Joinery Design, Fixed Décor Design Drawings and Specifications.

Floor and ceiling plans, elevations, sections and details are produced as Cad Scale Drawings. Design Drawings meant to be read in coordination with Structural, Mechanical & Electrical drawings.

Freehand or hardline sketches will be done for FF&E and Joinery. All shop drawings for furniture and furnishing will be provided by the nominated supplier/manufacturer.

Furniture schedule and specification for finishes are produced that correspond to the architectural drawings.

 

PHASE IV : RECOMMENDATION AND ASSISTANCE TO BIDDING AND NEGOTIATION

During this phase IDD will work with the Client, the Quantity Surveyor and other Consultants to conform to the approved and established budget. At the Client's request IDD will assist in the negotiations and will make reasonable adjustments to documents in order to meet budgets.

The timing for this Phase would be determined by the Clients method of tender and would need to be determined at a future date to co-ordinate with the project schedule.

 

PHASE V : HOME OFFICE COORDINATION AND LIAISON

During the course of construction, IDD will provide home office co-ordination to ensure continuity of design intent and maintenance of quality standards. Also included is the approval and documentation of substitutions and changes due to non-availability or obsolescence of any specified item. IDD will review shop drawings and samples and indicate approval or necessity for revision.

During this phase, IDD will visit the project site periodically as needed to review FFE prototypes and the progress of ongoing Fixed Décor Construction. This is to ensure that work is being carried out in accordance with the drawings, specification and design intent.

Regular visits to the site do not construe full time Site Supervision, which may be addressed as a separate service upon request of the Client.
