Site Measure and Assessment
This on- site meeting generally occurs within two weeks after the letter of agreement and retainer is received. We will take detailed measurements and photographs of all the spaces involved in your project.
Carefully considered space planning is crucial to a well-designed space. After all the measurements have been taken we will develop floor plans for each room. Floor plans allow us to determine what pieces will best fit into the space, how it is arranged, and the scale of each piece. We will then schedule a meeting to review each floor plan and discuss the pros and cons of each.
Once we have decided on a floor plan, the next step is to create the design scheme. This starts with developing a colour scheme and sourcing fabrics, furniture, fixtures and materials. Custom furniture and built-ins are designed and finishes chosen. Materials for flooring, counters and cabinetry are selected. Wall and floor coverings are considered. The material collections you can choose from our website. Window treatments are designed and fabrics, trims and hardware are chosen. A lighting plan is developed. Drawings, samples and pictures are gathered. Quotes and pricing are researched. Every detail is considered. Throughout this step there will be a fair amount of communication and there may be intermediate meetings to discuss certain elements of the design. Creating the design concept is a multi-faceted process and generally requires several weeks, depending on the scope of your project.
Concept Presentation and Approval
Once the design concept is ready to present, we will scheduled a meeting. You will be presented with carefully edited selections that represent the best choices for your space. We will go through the design in detail and you will be presented with fabrics, drawings, photos and samples for each element in the design. For some elements you'll be presented with a few options. During the meeting you'll provide feedback and we'll narrow down the options to the best one for each element. If there are items that need to be re-sourced we'll discuss the steps involved with that. By the end of the meeting we should have a complete design concept that meets your approval. Furniture we specifically choose from our website or we custom-made from our factory. Timely approval of the design concept is crucial for maintaining accurate pricing and ensuring the availability of some design elements (fabrics or antiques, for example). If the design is not approved in a timely manner there may be additional costs associated with replacing items that are no longer available. Once the design has been approved and all elements are finalized we can begin executing on the design.
After the completion of design stage all the document submit for authority approval for décor renovation or modifying works from SEWA, DEWA, DCD.
After getting the approval from Authority start to schedule the projects. A detailed Constructions Program (CPM)is developed for purchasing and ordering, work to be done by trades, and final installation. This schedule will be adjusted along the way to accommodate unforeseen circumstances. Please be aware that most projects take several months to complete.
Before any trades are hired or items are purchased on your behalf you will receive a proposal for approval that details the work to be done or item to be purchased along with all known associated costs. Nothing will be purchased without your approval.
You will receive two copies of each proposal; one for your records, and one that you will sign and return to our office with a 50% deposit. The balance on each order will be due when the merchandise is ready for delivery or when services provided by trades are substantially completed.
Design and Trades Implementation
If there is work to be done by our trades dept. We schedule this as soon as possible. We manage the scheduling and oversee the work to make sure the design is executed properly and with the highest quality workmanship. Throughout the design process, we manage all the details. We make sure work by trades is underway or has been satisfactorily completed, all concerns have been addressed, furniture ordered, payments made, schedule on track, and no detail overlooked. We'll schedule a brief meeting to review anything left outstanding or any changes that need to be made.
Execution & Accessorizing
We will hold your hand throughout the entire process and coordinate every aspect of the project. The site execution Construction program will submit for the client approval and according to the CPM the work will monitored and progress will done from team Aniq side.
This is where the vision becomes reality. All work by trades has been completed. Now the furniture is delivered, window treatments are installed, rugs laid, accessories placed and art hung. If it can be arranged, we have it all done on the same day so you get that "wow" effect when you come to your place.
Refinement Punch List
Once the installation is complete, we'll walk through the space and review each room together. We'll compile a punch list of all the little things that are left outstanding or need attention (such as paint touch-ups or a needed item). We will have each item on the list addressed as quickly as possible. If there's something that's not right, don't worry. We'll make sure it gets taken care of. Once all the items on the punch list are completed, the project will have come to a close. We will then discuss plans for photographing the space.
