1. Design Brief & Survey
A meeting with you to discuss your requirements, lifestyle and ideas. This along with our site analysis forms the backbone of the concept designs. A complete survey and photographic record is commissioned from our surveyors for most projects.
2. Concept Design
Arior as a team will bring together ideas and points from the brief where we produce drawings and a concept booklet with several options for layouts, moods, colour schemes and design features. Depending on the type of project, we also produce hand sketches and 3D images of the proposed design. We present the options to you and note your feedback to form the next stage.
3. Concept Design – Developed
This stage is where we pull together the feedback from your preferred option and explore design features in more detail. Following a meeting with you and once signed off it will form the core design for the next stage.
4. Construction & Fit Out
During the construction stage to ensure what has been agreed by you and drawn by us, we schedule regular site meetings to monitor the build and advise contractors accordingly. We will take care of the contracts and cost reviews with the chosen contractor. At the end of this stage we will fit out the finished property and handover to you (this is where the champagne cork gets popped!).
5. Snagging & Aftercare
This is where we make final inspections post practical completion and pre final certificate. After care is important to us, so we will also schedule a few extra meetings to ensure you know how everything works and check we and you are happy with the final results.
