WORKING STRUCTURE AND
NO OBLIGATION FIRST MEETING
For maximum flexibility we incorporate break points in our fee
structure, to allow you to choose the level of involvement our company
has in your project.
The fee structure sets out the stages usually required for a residential
interior design project. Commercial projects are quoted according
to the nature of the project.
DESIGN & PLANNING STAGE
INITIAL MEETING // free of charge
DESIGN FEE // This will vary according to the size of the project
and the scope of works, and is set out in detail in our Letter of
Agreement following the initial meeting. The Design Fee covers the
sourcing of materials and finishes, supply of samples, initial conceptual
drawings, and meetings to finalise the designs.
BREAK POINT // you may choose to implement the designs yourself
at this stage. The design materials and drawings supplied will provide
the basis for this.
BUILDING AND DECORATION SPECIFICATIONS // Once our design proposals
are approved, you have the option to commission full working drawings
and decoration specifications for each room. These documents detail
the work required for contractors to quote, and are suitable for
obtaining Council planning consents.
