Consistently aiming for outstanding designs and impeccable service, we pride ourselves on bringing our clients’ vision into reality. Our flexible, reliable team focuses on providing suitable solutions to cater to all niche preferences.
Schematic design is the first step of our process. During this initial stage, our architects and designers collectively communicate with the client to determine the project requirements and goals in proportion to the available space. The main purpose of the Schematic design is to convey how we intend to realize the client’s vision at a diagrammatic level, with realistic provisions for the building systems, equipment, structure, and furniture that would be designed and selected at a later stage. We extensively look into jurisdictional regulations and estimate our Initial costs based on the total project size and complicity. Our Schematic Design process produces rough drawings of a site plan, floor plans, and illustrative sketches along with computer renderings.
Our Design development process is merely the collection of results from the schematic design phase and taking them one step further. This is where our designers get the opportunity to add our stylish flair and artistic touch to the already agreed upon schematic and general concept. This is the phase that transforms the idea, the project and the collaboration into a piece of art. It includes finalizing the initial concept of the design and finally selecting such items as materials, window placements and locations, general structural details and the like. We, at Upmedio Design take it a step further by providing a 3D rendered display of the exact vision we have in mind, which in turn gives the client a better perspective to change, recommend or approve every little detail. At the end of our Design development process, we always yield a more detailed site plan as well as elevations, floor plans and section drawings with full dimensions.
Once our architect, designers and client are comfortable with the plans, drawings and 3D rendering produced from the design development process, we move on to the construction documents. The construction document creation process produces drawings with intricate and precise attention to detail, which are used for the construction of your project. The drawings in question typically contain the specific requirements and needs for construction details and materials. Once the Drawings are all set, we pass them down to our contractor for pricing estimation, our cost consultant for Bill of Quantity processing and to the Building department for required permit approvals. At the end of this process, we produce a set of architectural drawings that are combined with structural drawings that contain enough detail for our contractor to build your project.
At this point, all of the major design and component/Furniture selection decisions should have been made. Changes in design during this stage can be expected to have a significant impact on corresponding costs and schedules. We take charge at this point, and the construction process begins at the agreed upon date. Our contractor will keep you involved as the project progresses from floors, walls and ceilings to Electrical systems, plumbing and air conditioning. We take pride in the efficiency of our process simply because the construction phase is where everything comes together, from the very basic components of your new building, to furniture and artwork. By the end of this phase we produce your anticipated project with our signature style and flair. Your vision, our design.
