Produce a set of design intent drawings including site plans, general arrangements, floor finishes, reflected ceiling and lighting plans, interior and exterior elevations plus furniture and finishes schedules.
Once the dealer has translated these detailed requirements into construction drawings, work with the dealer and their architect to provide feedback on the drawings produced through to final approval.
Liaise with our preferred suppliers on their specific requirements (e.g. lighting).
