The SLEEK design service covers the following stages.
- The free consultation visit
- The design stage
- The presentation meeting
- Selection of finishes / final detailing.
- Site visits and signing off.
The free consultation visit; is an opportunity for us to meet you at the salon and discuss your requirements and budget while offering our own initial ideas and advice. During this meeting we will show you through our ranges of specialist salon furniture & equipment and take all relevant information for the design stage including a full site survey.
The design stage; allows us to combine your brief with our own input and experience to produce several alternative CAD design concepts. From these proposals we prepare 3D visualisation images of the finished scheme and itemised quotations including detailed shopfitting costings (if required).
If the design includes items of bespoke furniture we produce 2D and 3D images that clearly show the product from several angles.
The presentation meeting; is where we all sit down and consider the design concepts and quotations in detail. This usually results in a preferred concept being selected or alternatively we will note any alterations you wish to add and revise the drawings to suit until a final package is agreed.
Selection of finishes / final detailing; Is the point where you can choose from a full range of finishes and samples for; furniture, upholstery, decoration, flooring and lighting etc. (This is sometimes covered in the design meeting.) The final detailing stage involves the preparation of electrical, lighting, plumbing and furniture assembly drawings for the use of the installation team. This service is also available as an assistance to your own fitters.
Site visits and signing off; Occurs during and after the installation process and involves regular site visits (or a daily presence if we carry out the shopfitting works) by our project manager. This also includes the final ‘signing off’ meeting that will take place on the completion of your new salon.
