Q: How can you design my office without being on-site?
A: This is a very simple and cost-effective process. We design offices and interiors based on the information you provide, the same way an architect designs buildings without first seeing them. By using Computer Aided Drafting programs, we are able to replicate your office to scale and provide you with three-dimensional views to help you visualize the design. Changes are also easily made in a fraction of the time it used to take manually. If needed, you can forward us digital pictures to help explain more complex concepts.

Q: Do I need an architect, and how does your Complete Office Design compare with architectural plans?
A: Any new construction may require an architect’s seal on the plans in order meet local building code requirements and obtain local building permits. Interior build outs, or tenant improvements usually don’t require an architect. It is wise to check with your local contractor to be sure. Local contractors and architects are always familiar with your local building codes, which vary between municipalities.
Our Complete Office Designs are not architectural plans but are drawn to scale and show room placement and traffic flow. Within the rooms are appropriate placement of upper and lower cabinets, counters and sinks. Once the basic footprint is finalized the plan can be given to a contractor or architect, if required, to obtain the proper permits.
At this point, we complete the layout with suggestions and cost estimates for whatever furnishings are needed, including frame displays, dispensing tables, reception desks, waiting room chairs, contact lens, lab or break room furnishings. Our designers work directly with your architect or contractor to ensure your project goes smoothly for you and them.
Q: Do you help with color coordination?
A: Yes, we have an Interior Designer on staff who can assist with the selection of just a few items, such as paint or flooring, or the selection of materials for the entire office. Selections may also include wall coverings, woods and laminates, chair fabrics, window treatments and lighting options. Call and speak with one of our designers or click here for additional information.
