Deborah Bass in the process


From inception to completion, Base Interior can co-ordinate every aspect of your interior project, from permissions applications to dressing and styling. Our team of talented designers, along with experienced technicians, consultants and quality craftsmen, will ensure that your project is expertly managed and that all work is carried out to exacting standards, on time and on budget. Here's how the process works:

Stages A-E: Appraisal, Brief, Concept, Design Development, Technical Design & Specification

A preliminary meeting is arranged for you to discuss the project with us. This enables us to prepare a scope of work.

Feasibility studies will follow which will help us to work out a preliminary budget, time schedule and to put together a team of consultants, as required.

We will then focus on the design brief, exploring how the interior scheme is best approached and creating concepts ready for presentation. If we have understood your aspirations correctly then these initial concepts can be signed off and we can move on to the design development phase.

Once the full design has been presented and approved, the technical design can then be completed.

Stage F-H: Product Information, Tender Documentation & Issue, Tender Action & Contractor Appointment

These stages allow us to put the planning and design phases into action.

By collating the design and product information and detailing the scope of work for the various contractors, the tender responses will be as accurate and complete as possible, enabling budgets and schedules to be forecast realistically.

Once tender responses have been received, we will help you to select the best contractor for the job, as well as administering their contract and agreeing a schedule for the project.

Stages J-L: Mobilisation, Quality Control, Project Co-ordination, Procurement & Installation, Completion

Base Interior will ensure that every aspect of the work runs as smoothly as possible, on time and on budget.

However meticulously a job is planned, inevitably unavoidable problems occasionally emerge during a project and we will always do our best to ensure that any issues are tackled with the minimum of fuss and expense.

Prior to handing the property over to you, a meticulous snagging process will be completed, followed by the full dressing and styling of the property.

At Base, we recognise that every project is unique and our design process is tailored to suit each individual scheme. Whether we're working on a one bedroom apartment or a large estate, we offer a highly creative and professional interior design and project co-ordination service.
