Scope of Services

The scope of services for interior design can vary widely.  We are not architects, and when the work begins to become architectural in nature we ask that a licensed architect be engaged to take care of that part of a project.  The outline below is a framework for establishing the scope of work of any project.  Not all line items are relevant to any given project.

Depending on the type of project, we might be responsible for any of the traditional categories of architectural work as they apply to interior design: programming, schematic design, design development, working drawings, bid negotiation, or construction administration.

Or we might break the work up into other more recognizably interiors oriented categories such as:  space planning, furniture layout, specification and furniture design, paint and wallpaper selection, flooring, kitchen design including layout and specification, bathroom design, custom cabinetry, lighting design, specification, or fixture design.

Again, depending on the project, we might decide on a combination of categories.

In general, we produce drawings, schedules and specifications, construction documents, that communicate the design intention and details, to the client, and give the contractor the information necessary to build the client’s vision.
