The Process

The initial consultation is a discussion between Susan and the client focusing on the needs, vision, budget and time frame of the project.  Clients may have no idea what they need or want or how much it will cost.  We can provide a prioritized list of items that need to be addressed to update your interior and estimate the cost. 


Space Planning is developed by analyzing the client challenges and needs.  We discuss how your business operates and interacts to establish a functional and aesthetically pleasing plan.  We provide to scale drawings that show the furniture placement for a clear visual image of the use of space.  Upon completion of the space plan, the design details are addressed with 3D drawings which give a clear representation of the intended design concept.

Interior Design is created with the awareness of your budget and overall vision for your interior.  We evaluate and prioritize all aspects of the project for a cohesive and dramatic design.  This is accomplished by creative vision and knowledge of appropriate materials and furnishings for your space.

Construction Drawings are a detailed set of documents for the interior construction, which are provided to the owner.  These plans are helpful tools in negotiating with lending institutions and general contractors for bidding your project.  The plans include dimensioned floor plan, electrical plan, reflected ceiling plan, detailed elevations, built-in drawings and finish schedule.  Mechanical and structural drawings will be required by appropriate professionals.    

Furnishings include furniture, art, window coverings, accessories, decorative lighting and signage.  Another Dimension is an independent dealer purchasing directly from manufacturers providing the client with quality, value and a wide variety of options.  We provide professional installation. All product lines meet or exceed the highest standards of commercial products – ANSI/BIFMA and GSA

Owner Representation - If the project is a new structure, we will consult with the architect during the design phase and contractor during the construction phase of your project.  This provides you with a professional collaborative team for the best outcome of your project.

Signage is quoted based on the requirements established by the city and preference of the client.  We design, price and install interior and exterior signage.  Detailed drawings are provided for client and city approval.
