Steps of our Creative Design Methodology

Design Methodology

The first step is to set up an initial design meeting with client to assess projects goals and expectations. Additionally we make a head start on gathering all the necessary information.
With a multidisciplinary team of professionals we brainstorm contemporary museum ideas that form a cohesive, tailored design style.

Our concept designs display an accurate reflection of individual spaces where stories unfold, ensuring all principle content of the project are giving outlined locations and descriptions. A clear vision of what will be displayed in the finished museum design project is presented.

We produce a comprehensive breakdown of design in an Excel spread sheet format to check that these are in line with client’s budgetary requirements.
Full detail designs are provided as a comprehensive package that includes detail of the total museum design, overall layout design drawings (plans, elevations and cross-sections) and associated database files; including production & project schedules, construction methodology and location of each element.
The next step is to evaluate and analyse which contractor provides “best value” for the project. Best value equates to the compromise between time, quality and cost, this does not always mean the cheapest price.
From concept to completion, our team project manage the design project from concept stage, supervision of manufacture to the final flourish of completion We successfully ensure exceptional quality and best value museum design solutions.
Installation is one of the most import parts of the of the design process. Our attention to detail, construction experience and know-how assists in getting the very highest quality from each of the projects contractors.

Prior to the start of any works on site, we visit each of the fit out contractors and specialist consultants to check that designs are being strictly adhered to or if there is a problem to resolve it at this early stage rather than leaving a nasty surprise for once installation is underway.

This hands on approach allows our clients to relax. When the museum or exhibition opens, the project is delivered on time, budget and to the highest quality .

Finally, after quality snagging, the museum design project or visitor experience is completed. Excellence in design, client satisfaction and audience engagement is assured.
