Through our trusted partners, we are able to provide visual presentations with 3-D renderings, augmented reality and virtual reality, upon request.

PROGRAMMING

We engage our clients in the early design process by asking many questions and getting to know the project requirements, define goals, establish budgets, evaluate space and clarify and define the overall vision.

 

SCHEMATIC DESIGN

The schematic portion of the project focuses on creating conceptual design schemes that tell the story of the project. This may include inspirational images, inspired sketches, plan evaluation, space planning, furnishing layouts, preliminary material and finish selections, furnishing styles, and color palate options.

 

DESIGN DEVELOPMENT

During the design development phase, DTF Design meets with you and your team to discuss the feasibility of the vision.  Together, the conceptual design is refined.  These refinements may include plan alterations, material and equipment selections and/or furnishing and artwork options.  Interior drawings are further developed and fine-tuned which may include, quick hand sketches or fully detailed floor plans, elevations, sections, details, 2-D and 3-D renderings, augmented reality and virtual experiences.

CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTATION

The construction documentation phase entails the working drawings, details and written specifications necessary  for your construction team to build your project and bring the design vision to life. The drawings and specifications are delivered to you and your team to ensure a cohesive and coordinated design.
