We make interior spaces functional, safe, and beautiful by determining space requirements and selecting decorative items, such as colors, lighting, and materials. We are reading blueprints, being aware of building codes and inspection regulations.
Our interior designers work closely with architects, structural engineers, mechanical engineers, and builders, to determine how interior spaces will function, look, and be furnished.
We design new buildings, extensions or alterations to existing buildings and advise on the restoration and conservation of old properties. We can work on individual buildings or on large redevelopment schemes, and can be responsible for the design of the surrounding landscape and spaces.
Our team is working closely with clients and users, we make sure that projected designs match requirements and are functional, safe and economical. We usually control a project from start to finish and work with a number of construction professionals, including surveyors and engineers, producing drawings and specifications that the construction team works to.
We work on new products or improve existing ones, and use their understanding of technology, materials and manufacturing methods to improve the design and usability of an item. The work involves: designing, modelling, testing, producing prototypes.
Working alongside engineers and model-makers, industrial/product designers conduct research and devise a design proposal for projects. We also work on the budget of the designed item to make sure it's cost effective.
