Aspects of  Full Interior Design Service include:

There are 2 major phases of an Interior Design project namely:

  • PHASE 1 – PLAN
  • PHASE 2 – EXECUTION.

PHASE 1 – PLAN

1. BRIEF

During this phase, we will sit down with our client and establish the Space that requires Design; Budget; What is required; What is not Required; The Look and Feel and what the timelines may be.

2. CONCEPT

Once we have established the outlines of the project, PCL will put together a concept. The objective at this stage is to establish Layout, Design and Look & Feel of the Project before any detailed drawings are put to hand. We will Measure up the space; Survey existing furniture and equipment; Capture all this info on CAD; Do Space Planning; Design options; Layout options; 3D drawings; Establish required Health & Safety requirements; Propose finishes & Samples; Put together Draft Budgets; Presentations and go back to the Drawing board with the changes as required.

3. DETAILED DRAWINGS

After the concept is approved, PCL will move into the Detailed drawing phase. The objective of this phase is to put together a pack of drawings of the project in order to obtain accurate quotes. These Drawings include the following: Demolition Layouts; Wall Layouts (drywall, brick wall, glass etc) Furniture Layouts (existing & new); Floor finishes layouts; Reflected ceiling plans; Lighting Layouts; Electrical Layouts; Air Conditioning Layouts; Sprinkler Layouts; Sections & Elevations; Joinery detail drawings for bespoke furniture; 3D drawings; Sections through specific details, e.g. bulkheads; Health and Safety Layouts and all Required Council submission Drawings.

4. BUDGETS

These detailed drawings are distributed to multiple contractors to obtain quotes, which PCL will collate into a Budget, outlining each component required to complete the project. We will get multiple quotes on each item as required.

5. PROJECT PLAN

Once the Budget is approved, PCL will put together a project plan including a detailed Installation Schedule; Timelines; Budget Control; Health & Safety Requirements and Project management requirements.

PHASE 2 – EXECUTION

1. INSTALLATION SCHEDULE

Each project requires an installation schedule detailing each contractor’s timeline, manufacture and installation time off and on site and the order that contractors will be on site to ensure that all elements of the project build are installed in a specific order. Installing the carpet while the ceiling is still being plastered and painted is generally not a good idea, for example. PCL includes the lead times required for Council submission, Health & Safety approvals; and for the insurance to be in place.

2. HEALTH AND SAFETY

Each site needs to comply with the local Health and Safety bylaws, this requires a safety plan. Regular Safety briefings need to be conducted; Emergency plans complied and the correct insurance is put in place for the scope of the project.

3. PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Project Management is the process of keeping an overall eye on the full scope of the project, this includes Timeline management; Budget Control; Health & Safety management; Site Variations; Site Inspections; Handover; snagging and overall quality of the installation.

4. HANDOVER

Once the project is completed to specification, PCL will conclude the project with a handover process. Handover incorporates all snagging; extras; quality control and a plan to maintain the installation.
