PROCESS - 5D Engagement Goals

This “Five D” methodology facilitates a true team approach to both final design and deployment, by closely integrating input from end user, architect, and other trades during all phases of the project. By assembling the team (Owner, Architect, ESI) at the onset of the project, each team member has the opportunity to interface closely, communicate, and work together toward a common goal during the entire process. Consequently, it becomes a simple matter to explore all of the viable options and the associated cost ramifications, with immediate feedback from the perspectives of Owner, Architect and ESI.

The net result is value engineered solutions, with the needs, desires and budgets continually incorporated. At the same time, all of the associated costs are precisely pinpointed, and the scope of work refined. With this program there should be no cost surprises after the design is completed. When the design concept and accepted drawing package has been finalized, it has the implicit agreement from all team members that it is the optimal and most cost effective design solution.

PROCESS - 5D Steps

Discover - Project requirements, client desires and timeline

Define- Project scope, research, schematic design and initial budgets

Design- Design Development, refine design, scope and budget

Develop- Engineering, Construction design documents and Spec book 

Deploy- Construction ready deliverables, final scope of BOM


PROCESS - Our Commitment to You

  •  Focus on your experience, not the gadgets. 
  • No misaligned expectations, we listen carefully
  • Technology that is cohesive to the interior design
  • Brainstorm creative ideas and solutions
  • Details matter, no surprises later
  • Cost-effective value engineering procedures and processes

BOTTOM LINE-  We save you time, money and headaches, PERIOD.
