iS design has provided interior design services for corporate, retail and medical tenants as well as property managers and building owners since 1999. As such, the firm has a well-earned reputation for providing the highest quality design services to projects from less than 1,000 square feet to over 70,000. Our interiors expertise is also integrated into our buildings architectural services across numerous project types and sectors. The firm’s strength lies in understanding the markets we focus on and collaborating on solutions attuned to best meet our client’s specific needs and desires.
Our programming process begins with listening. It is a process through which a designer leads a client to identify and articulate what the project’s objectives and constraints are for initial occupancy as well as for the foreseeable future. At the end of this exercise, iS design establishes the project design objectives, a list of your needs, wants and priorities in written and numerical form. The result is a detailed work plan that guides the planning and design effort. A well-executed programming phase can be invaluable to a successful project.
Space planning is the analysis and synthesis of the functional and special requirements of the client's program to create a graphic planning solution. At iS design, our interiors specialists balance the practical constraints of available space and budget with desired solutions that maximize design style as well as value for the client.
Pricing Documents include a proposed space plan along with added project specific criteria such as recommended materials and desired finishes. These are added to the space plan in key-noted form to allow a general contractor to effectively estimate the anticipated construction cost for the project from an early stage of project development. The advantage of this approach for an owner is the knowledge of the budget implications of design decisions before design documentation has progressed too far to be easily modified.
Construction / Permit Documents
With thousands of successfully completed interiors projects, iS design has been able to refine our production of construction / permit documents to consistently match our clients’ schedules while maintaining a focus on quality throughout the process. We work in tandem with carefully selected engineering consultants who understand our firm philosophy and expectations. Such compatible collaboration provides for a seamless delivery of a quality project on time and on budget.
iS design provides custom finish and material selections to appoint and embellish the designs we produce. Our goal is not only to inform and involve our clients in the process, but to assure that the design work we create is ultimately a response to our client's vision.
Construction Phase Services
The goal of this phase of the work is to support the process of construction by responding to questions, facilitating shop drawing review, interpreting the documents and certifying pay applications all while maintaining an ongoing understanding of the status of the work in the field. This activity is oriented toward assuring the work is completed as designed and providing services to the owner, contractor or construction manager as needed to avoid delays or project misunderstandings.
Understanding and communicating a project’s design intent and potential impact is an informative service we provide through three-dimensional rendering and computer modeling. The insight and understanding this service offers provides a valuable mechanism for visualizing the proposed design solution which empowers our clients with another tool for imagining and achieving their goals.
