Why leave anything to chance? Our start to finish process helps us work to a plan, making our outcomes predictable and helps our clients know exactly what is happening when, allowing them to plan for the business to open or reopen. As business owners ourselves, we understand that communication is key and planning is super important. You will be issued with a construction program that outlines timelines and significant stages in the build, so you can plan on operating your business as soon as possible. 



At this stage we get to know you, your business and what you are after in a design. Gathering information such as: customer requirements, functionality requirements, design and feel, potential materials and timelines required for the project.




Taking a deeper look at the existing building or shop, shop front or new premises, so we can measure up and start to build the concept.  




A consultative design process, we provide our clients with a conceptual design and have open discussions about the design before we finalise a design.




Taking into consideration all of our consultations and site visits, we are then ready to create the designs and have them submitted to you, the client for approval.




You will be issued a construction program, once the contract is signed, this will include, timelines, handover date and any significant stages in the build.




We are set to go, works begin.
