Projects vary in complexity orscalebased on the type of development or structure designedand its scope of works. Simple ones may not require the entire range of a contract documentation processlike tendering, bidding, conferences, pre-qualification, and etc. Proceeding with cost proposals for the construction to shorten thepre-construction phase canbe a very efficient approach forthis type of projectespecially when the required plans and drawings are already available.
Typically, a client decides to search for a contractorfrom referrals or othercredible sources once he opts for this service. After duediligence, he acquires all relevant information about the contractor or his company and sets a meeting with representatives to presenthisrequirements.

Interior Fit Out
One of the easy ways to go about the process of having your space designed beautifully is to get an Interior Designer. This professional will prepare for you plans, perspective renderings, and mood boards to illustrate and define the interior space before any actual fit-out is done. The layout shown on the plans expresses the relationship of the spaces with each of the elements that are placed in the room. For example, the tables and chairs are arranged in such a way that foot traffic remains unobstructed or a writing table is placed near a window to allow light during daytime. A space can be designed as simple or as complex as your ownpreferred design directionbut with limitless options. The Interior Designer provides you thesewithin legal parametersto fully enhance the potential of each space while articulating the room’s character and functionality.When the design process is complete and your selections are final, you can now get us to build the interior space for you.
Another way to go about having an Interior Fit-Out done is to have us send you a proposal both for the design and the fit-out works. Once we reach an agreement, we proceed with doing the designbased on your best optionwithin our agreed cost-effective parameters. Once you approve our design proposals, we proceed with the technical drawings, secure permits, and then start with the fit-out.
