Design is what brings your ideas to life. Listening, learning, probing, asking questions of you and your employees and observing how you use your space all feed into creating your unique office space design. An essential middle part of our renowned 3d process.
Tailored to each brief, the Design process can differ for each project, as each client will take the initial Define stage, to different levels of detail, ultimately effecting how the Design, itself, develops.

In the majority of cases, each project works through an eight-step design process, and depending on each project’s unique objectives, every element can be lightly touched or dived into in greater depth.
These eight steps are almost like sub-phases of the Design element, and include:
This would usually take place first and foremost, once the Define stage has been completed. It allows for the creation of office space solutions that will work for your company, in order for you to get the most out of your fit-out and solving your current business needs.
This helps to identify what different zones you may be needing/wanting in your space, and could include meeting spaces, private offices, breakout areas and reception areas. Included in this stage too, are bubble diagrams which demonstrate how the space will be moved around by staff and visitors. This helps to make sure that the space is fully maximised to get the best solution.
Once the zones have been identified and planned out, a plan can be produced which shows the general arrangement so that everyone can start to get a vision of what the end product will look like.
Mood boards are then produced showing initial concept ideas and possible finishes so that your brand colours can be incorporated into the design, to make sure that your office blends cohesively with your brand.
This is an essential part, as the client needs to love the space and be able to visualise it working for their business. This gives you a chance, as a client, to voice any concerns or general thoughts about the design, which helps create a seamless outcome.
This is where the magic happens, and your design starts coming to life. Having it in a 3d format makes it easier to visual your new space, and picture the different aspects. It also helps to make sure that the colours and furniture work together practically, as well as looking good.
This is optional, as you may want to push on with the next fit-out stage and Deliver the created Design. However, it acts as a great engagement tool for the staff, to introduce them to what their new space could look like. This allows them to voice any feedback and start maximising enthusiasm for the new space.
This is the final step of the Design process, and is the start of initiating the Deliver stage. This means that the design has been finalised at this point, and that the furniture will start to be ordered so that the Design can start to come to life.
