Under the experienced direction of Wayne Farmilo, i.d. Projects has been helping companies design and plan their office space for over ten years. We closely follow the latest trends in office configurations to maximize efficiency, while providing a comfortable workspace that allows employees to collaborate and flourish.
As part of our space planning services, we work closely with you to understand what’s most important to you in creating your new environment. We conduct a number of interviews and analyses to ensure a thorough understanding of your requirements, from detailed operation flows to individual equipment and storage needs.
At the outset, we prepare a detailed brief based on our discussions and observations, complete a workflow analysis of your needs, and execute a site survey. Once you are satisfied with our proposed design and are ready to move forward, we prepare the final budget and schedule for your project. Throughout each phase of your project, we apply imaginative solutions that achieve your design objectives, while adhering to all BCA and other Australian codes.
During the design phase, the i.d. Projects team observes your business’s work flow to ensure a smooth operation that maximizes efficiency and productivity. Our team of professional designers works with you to develop creative solutions that meet your requirements, based on a complete requirements analysis and computer rendering of possible outcomes. We use 3D imaging and walkthrough animation showing furniture, lighting, and equipment location, to ensure that your vision is fully realized throughout the planning process.
Once you have decided on a layout that meets your requirements, we prepare a full set of technical drawings that contain detailed plans, sections and elevations. We work with you to choose materials and furniture that optimize your budget and enhance your overall business environment. Our team manages and prepares all relevant architectural drawings for formal plan approval, ensuring that your project moves into the build-out phase with minimal disruption.
Our project managers ensure that your project moves smoothly from the design phase into production, on time and on budget. We manage and integrate all elements of the fitout, leaving you free to concentrate primarily on running your business. Throughout the fitout process, we provide our clients with weekly reports that include progress updates, construction photos and cost summaries.
Our project management team collaborates with an active network of contractors and suppliers to ensure that we meet all deadlines and obligations, and avoid cost over-runs. We focus on maintaining close communication with our clients throughout the course of the build-out process. Our project managers can perform custom tasks to facilitate your office transformation, including managing your office re-fit and re-stack, DA approvals, and all elements of design and construction management.
