Whatever your vision for your office renovation, we’re here to help you achieve it. As interior designers, we see the potential for your space and we have the knowledge to understand all of the underlying structural considerations and planning required to make it everything you want and need it to be. Learn more about the difference between interior design and interior decorating.
Your office may need to be rethought to better accommodate your growing team and refreshed to better reflect your brand, but you may not need to replace all of your furniture and fixtures. Our Design Only Package gives you all of the premium start-to-finish service of our Complete Package, but we work with any existing furniture and fixtures that you want to keep.
Studio Forma’s process allows us to manage the design and oversee its implementation until the project is complete. The key steps we’ll take to make this happen are:
1) Getting to Know What You and Your Business Need from Your Workspace
You talk, we listen. Together, we’ll walk through your space and discuss the challenges you’re struggling to solve, plans for future growth, and the look you want. We consider how everything relates to each other, including:
- Structural and logistical realities — building codes, plumbing, communications, wiring, etc.
- The human element — the needs and workflow of your team and their health and safety
- Aesthetics and how we can infuse your brand and culture into the decor
2) Planning Your Space & Technical Drawings
We’ll measure your space and begin the design. Once you approve the layout concept, we create a 3D image so you can visualize how it will look with the new colours, furniture, wall placement, and the overall flow and flexibility. We then generate the technical drawings that the contractor needs to quote and complete the work. Typically this includes: the base building plan, demolition plan, partition and millwork plan, reflected ceiling plan, power and communications plan, furniture plan, and finishes plan.
3) Coordinate with the Contractor
We do site visits throughout the project and resolve any issues, questions, or discrepancies, and when the time is right, we coordinate the installation of your new furniture and any other elements that require specialized service such as some types of flooring.
4) Final Inspection
We make sure the vision has been realized and your new office is as expected based on the design. We’ll also assemble the specification package that you keep for future reference, a veritable guidebook to your new office and everything in it.
