Design Process & Project Management
Ideas through to completion
Design and planning are a critical part of your new patio, pergola, deck, alfresco or outdoor area. Our experienced team will work with you to ensure its success.
The first step requires contact from you. Call us and we will arrange an appointment for one of our Design Consultants to visit your home and discuss your needs and desires for your outdoor area. We'll listen and discuss the design elements, materials and show you samples from our range.
We then start putting pen to paper and prepare a concept drawing for you along with a quotation. This can all usually be done in one visit but with more complex jobs we may need to arrange a time for a follow up visit. Within 48 hours of your appointment, we will email you an appraisal on the work discussed with pictures attached to provide guidance.
If you’re happy with the direction of the project, a follow up meeting to fine tune the details can be organised or we can produce plans, CAD drawings or 3D drawings for a small charge.
Accepting the quotation
Once you're happy to proceed and we have the design details complete we ask you to pay a small deposit. At this point we will sign off on all of the details of the project, and then get started on the next step, which involves preparation of your documentation ready for shire application. You'll find that our process allows you to sit back and relax, knowing that we are doing everything to make sure every aspect of your project is executed to your exacting standards.
