Since every project is unique and has its own set of requirements and challenges, Silver Dragon has developed a
process to ensure the best and most professional service hrough all the stages of the design process – from inception
to completion of the final details.
Our project manager will pay a visit to your property to walk through it to establish focal points, scale, proportions of each room, light quality, which belongings need to be incorporated into the new schemes and so on. This establishes crucial issues such as the scope of work and required materials.
You would have a conversation with our manager to share your ideas, lifestyles, dreams, requirements, needs, likes, dislikes, budgets, time lines. Our project manager would also take room and wall measurements, as well as photos and dimensions of existing furniture you would like to use.
We will follow up with a brief and fee proposal detailing your requirement and our recommendations along with a proposed timeline and outline of project costs. When you decide to move forward, and the brief and the fees are agreed upon, we would require a deposit and we will commence with the project.
Our design team will conduct a measured site survey. We will produce 2D scaled drawings of your property's existing plans and elevations. At this stage we will investigate the feasibility of the proposals with any necessary third parties such as local authority planning departments.
We will begin implementing the design brief in the form of realistic photo like 3D-renderings. At this stage we will also transform our design into highly detailed drawings and specifications, along with a schedule or works, lighting and electrical layouts and FF&E schedules. Once you approve of the final design, it would signify the end of the design development phase.
We will at this stage send the specifications out to our panel of contractors for quotations and bids and will manage their responses. Together with you our design team will select the best candidate for the project. Once you have appointed a contractor, the realisation of the project begins.
We will direct and manage the building works, builders, sub contractors and all suppliers involved with the project. Our project manager will visit the site regularly to coordinate the trades, supply, delivery and installation of all the furnishings in line with the design and oversee finishing touches such as the placement of furniture, art works etc. The project is concluded when the building works detailed on the specification documents and design brief has been completed and lighting, furniture and fixtures have been installed as per design brief.
As part of our after-care service, after letting you settle in for a while we will schedule a check in to make sure that your property is as it should be. In the unlikely case there are any outstanding defects or issues, we will get them resolved as soon as possible. We like to make sure that all of our clients are completely satisfied with their new home designed by Silver Dragon.
