Design Phases

Ah, the joys of knowing what to expect. Although the steps may vary, the guide below outlines the general flow of how we achieve a successful kitchen or bath project. Typically we like to meet with you in two-week increments, unless time requirements dictate otherwise.

 

PRE-WORK: The Agreement

Once you’ve decided to work with us, we’ll enter into a written agreement that reserves our time to complete a comprehensive set of plans for your kitchen or bath. In exchange for investing our time, experience and talents, you agree to compensate us for those services by making a design retainer deposit. Of course your deposit is appropriately credited toward your final contract.

 

PHASE ONE: Preliminary Design

  • Confirm project goals and scope of work


  • Refine project budget


  • Brainstorm general layout options


  • Conduct job site inspection and field measurements


  • Draft initial floor plans/layouts and other project considerations

PHASE TWO: Design Development

    Get ready for frequent meetings during this phase so we can finalize a more detailed plan of action.

  • Present conceptual floor plans: (schematics, spatial relationships, scale and placement), discussing the merits of each


  • Coordinate aesthetics: includes selection of cabinetry, finishes and materials; discuss options; related costs decisions are made


  • Provide technical drafting and project refinement: includes detailed drawings, elevations and/or sketches that focus on the technical or functional aspects of the project


  • Prepare detailed cost analysis: includes detailed cost proposal and project specifications summarizing project goals


  • Most design issues will be resolved here, though some refining may occur in the final phases

PHASE THREE: Final Contract

  • Confirm final agreement: includes review of responsibilities and estimated construction plan


  • Begin ordering materials

PHASE FOUR: The Installation

  • Provide final construction documents to trade partners


  • Demolition and installation


  • Coordinate materials and aid the contractor’s efforts to build the project as specified

PHASE FIVE: Project Completion

  • Complete final walk-through conference


  • Create punch list including documentation of any warranty items


  • Complete project to client satisfaction


  • Receive warranty statement


  • Review client care and maintenance kit
