Hospitality Design Process
STAGE I - PROGRAMMING
During the initial phase of development, our team will assist with establishing an optimal project program. This systematic process involves review of the functional, operational and equipment requirements, as well as the brand image and project objectives. We look at market analyses, materials, the competitive set, as well as guest and staff concerns. This reveals true conditions and defines clear project direction.
STAGE II - SCHEMATIC DESIGN
The Schematic Design phase is where the ideation for your project is realized and direction for design is established. The FF&E, interior architecture, and the space and operational relationship of the components of the project are established. This phase also includes the development of a preliminary FF&E budget.
STAGE III - DESIGN DEVELOPMENT
It is during this phase that the process of refining and translating the vision into functional and aesthetic reality takes place. We continue to develop the character of the project, including plans and elevations, FF&E, custom product development, millwork design and details. Refined FF&E budget is provided and if applicable, Model Room documentation is prepared.
STAGE IV - CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS
Construction Documents are created in the highest detail necessary to communicate the final design and construction requirements of the project. This stage consists of all interior design drawings, GC manual and final budgets, as well as product and material specifications. These documents allow the general contractor to finalize the budget of the project and for the selected FF&E procurement team to bid.
STAGE V - CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION
The Construction Administration Phase is where we monitor, review and consult with the client and project teams on the progress of the project. We focus on the reviewing the schedule of procurement, specification delivery and interior construction for compliance within the scope of work and documented design. FF&E installation is completed within this phase including artwork and accessories and concludes with a review of a detailed deficiencies list.
