This is the first stage of the design process and is the initial consultation of the Interior designer and client. We prefer to meet the client to discuss the project, goals, priorities, ideas, needs and time constraint. We will then start with an initial site survey which will allow us to create project proposals. We use this time to clarify the budget and also discuss our payment terms with the client.Conceptualise
From the brief, we develop sketches, mood boards, scale drawings in 2d & 3D and renderings with design solutions for clients consideration. From our initial consultation, we then gather all the information we have discussed with the client we provide technical drawings include furniture layouts, lighting arrangements, plumbing drawings, and electrical drawings. We also provide the client with detailed selections of the furniture, fixtures, and fittings based on individual project sourcing as well as samples of the proposed materials and finishes.Design Presentation
We use this time to prepare our initial style concept boards that we use as a visual tool to clarify the style and confirm the brief discussion that happened between the designer and the client. The concepts are then visualized through rendered graphics with 2D & 3D design specifics and the same is presented to the clients with rough estimates of costs.Design Finalization
We then welcome any feedback from our clients in regards to our initial concepts and amend any ideas accordingly. We work with the client until he is happy with the final concept. After the finalization of rendered concept, we would like to proceed to specify, sourcing products and materials.Cost & Budgeting
Detailed cost sheets are prepared from the information tabulated in the previous exercise and matched with the budgetary constraints given by the clients.
If the cost overrun then a special exercise is undertaken in re-negotiating deals, using cost-effective substitutes etc., to fit the requirements within budget without compromising on schedule material. In inevitable cases, the material requirements are modified to fit the budgetary constraints.
Sourcing, Specifying products and Materials that we believe will work best in your space and most importantly clients budget. MI has an extensive databank of materials and their suppliers complete with specifications which is constantly updated. In close coordination with clients and vendors, material requirements are tabulated in terms of quantity, texture, colour, technical specifications, suppliers, price and delivery lead times.Project Management
We work with our employees to ensure an efficient, quality and safe installation of all items and are happy to liaise with trades and suppliers on the clients behalf.
The ability to do a good design alone will not make one a good or successful designer. One has to be a good manager, Thus a well-organized individual task supervision clubbed with an overall project management procedure is built-in to our MI services, This ensures quality implementation of the project and problems become foreseen events rather than surprises. Corrective actions can be taken in time to assure timely completion, thus curbing cost overruns and wastage.
The final stage of our design process involves us coming for a final inspection of the project, to ensure that both the company and client are happy with the final outcome. This will be final styling which can include sourcing an assortment of materials to place around the home or rearranging the sources to ensure space is working its best and Mentoring during execution to ensure desired output on site. This involves following the completion of the project and working closely with relevant craftsman, suppliers and contractors to ensure that each stage of the project is carried out to the highest possible standards. We stay with the client throughout this phase to ensure that the space is working the way clients want it to.Project Completion & Handover
This is the significant and existing stage that sets into motion the handover of the concluded project, the steps that pull together all the required elements to create the visualized look. This stage encompasses installation, delivery of furnishings, accessories, and styling etc. The client can voice any snags or minor adjustments, which will be attended to without delay.
Our aim is to complete the works within time and make the whole experience pleasant and exciting. We carry out final snagging to ensure we deliver the best possible result. After we perform final quality checks after completion and we handover the project to the client.
