Our Process

Phase 1:  Getting to know you and your needs
Phase 2:  Creating the perfect space
Phase 3:  Making it happen

The design process consists of three phases.
For an interior scheme of a new build project or for the interior refurbishment of an existing public space the processes below are similar. However each project is unique and will be tailored to your individual needs. Whether you are a space-making tycoon or it's your first public building project Igloo Interiors can work with you from an initial idea to handover (with possibly a 'few bits' in between!).

Phase 1

Getting to know you & creating an agreed brief

We want to understand the values and needs of both you the Client and your end users to ensure they are reflected in your new space. We look forward to getting to know you and it will be good for you to get to know us too!

There will be two presentation meetings: 
1. Introduce ourselves, table proposed plans and outline the required design brief. 
2. Presentation of a visual concept board. This concept  informs the theme for the space including design of individual items within the interior, it underpins all subsequent design work.

At the end of this process a brief will have been agreed together with a background colour palette and story on which to build a cohesive and distinct interior.

phase 2

Creating the Perfect space - Designing the Interior

With proposed architectural plans, interior design brief and visual concept in hand the nitty gritty of space planning begins. Igloo will liaise with various members of a Design Team such as Project Managers, Architects, M&E Consultants, Acoustic Consultants, Structural Engineers, specialist sound and lighting engineers, or a project can be overseen on site to completion.

Construction drawings are drawn up for issue to the main Contractor and suppliers instructing possible combinations of space planning, innovative lighting, acoustic provisions, flooring and wall graphics, joinery items, way finding and sourcing of furniture. Budget costings are provided. 

3D visuals of designed interiors and sample boards of agreed finishes are provided for either internal use with stakeholders or for external marketing purposes.With the design process complete, work on site will commence.
