In order to get a true understanding of the clients needs, we generally like to engage with the client through an on-site consultation.
This first step in the process is the most critical in terms of understanding the clients’ requirements and expectations from the design. At this stage, the budget for the overall project is discussed. Once we have a firm grasp of what is required, we set about creating a 2D plan which takes environmental and site conditions into consideration. This is presented along with an estimate for the works.
Any changes to the plan, or cost related issues are raised and changes made before the finished plan and quotation are presented to the client.
