Stage 1

Introductions & Inspiration

Give us a call! We’ll meet to discuss your vision, talk budget and walk you through our process. From there, we’ll prepare a preliminary budget and our design inspiration for your project.

FIRST STEP

Give us a call – we’d love to set up a meeting with you!

FIRST STEP
SECOND STEP

At your no-obligation meeting, we’ll discuss your wishes and ideas for your project.

You’ll learn about our process, as well as what makes us different! This meeting will allow you to see if our team and process is a good fit for your project.

SECOND STEP
THIRD STEP

Based on our meeting, we will compile a line by line preliminary budget, as well as a Houzz idea book inspired by your project.

THIRD STEP
FOURTH STEP

After reviewing the preliminary budget, design ideas and getting to know more about our processes and team, we hope you choose to move forward with Woolrich Group in a collaborative project.  

With approval to continue to move forward, a small deposit is taken so we can start on preliminary design and working budget.

Stage 2

Planning & Design

During this stage, we gather more detailed requirements and establish an initial design direction. We’ll provide you with initial designs, a budget range and estimated timeline.

FIRST STEP

Now that you’ve chosen to move forward, we will set up a “proceed” meeting to review the budget and drill down deeper into the design possibilities.  

FIRST STEP
SECOND STEP

We will visit your space to take before pictures and measurements – from these, we develop a preliminary design concept as well as a space plan.

SECOND STEP
THIRD STEP

The project manager and designer will visit the site with any pertinent trades to determine budgets based on the preliminary design drawings.  

The design and construction team collaborate to adjust designs and budget where required.  The preliminary timeline for the project is determined.

THIRD STEP
FOURTH STEP

The next meeting is to review the design, revised preliminary budget to determine if everything has been addressed.  It is time to start confirming the working budget.

FOURTH STEP

Stage 3

High Level Designs

We use your feedback to refine your unique design and start confirming the details. The goal of the phase is to establish a clear design direction and working budget that we can use to kick off the construction phase.
FIRST STEP

Finishes are being selected, products specified and floor plans tweaked.  This is the time where the high-level design will be presented to you for approval.

FIRST STEP
SECOND STEP

The preliminary budget is converted to a working budget based on approvals to date. Design and budgeting is ongoing.  We put a lot of effort into the front end of our projects.

SECOND STEP
THIRD STEP

Once the working budget is approved, the contract and second deposit invoice are prepared to proceed.

THIRD STEP
FOURTH STEP

Final designs and overall project planning will commence after the contract is sign and deposit has been paid. Things are still flexible to change at this point…but we are full throttle moving forward.

FOURTH STEP

Stage 4

Construction

This phase is where we really shine. Instead of the design team just handing the keys to the construction team, we work closely with construction and you through this entire phase. We’ve proven that this collaborative approach has the best results.
FIRST STEP

Applications for building/development permits are submitted and detailed schedule for the construction team is prepared. All products are being ordered and trades are booked for the project.

FIRST STEP
SECOND STEP

A site preconstruction meeting is had with trades to make sure all teams know their scope and get any special project instructions. 

SECOND STEP
THIRD STEP

The site is prepared for construction. The project manager is your main contact and will keep you informed on schedule and budget changes.  

Our design and construction team is here to review progress as well as discuss any opportunities, ideas, or challenges that have arisen. 

Change orders are issued for all changes affecting budget and scope.

THIRD STEP
FOURTH STEP

Once the construction is coming close to being complete, a site walk-through with the designer and project manager is booked to review any items for final completion. 

The project is close to substantial completion where the space gets cleaned and ready for substantial completion.  A final walk-through is done to identify or answer questions.

FOURTH STEP

Stage 5

Wrap Up!

Overview: Welcome to your new space! You’re back home and we’re applying the final touches.
FIRST STEP

The actual numbers for the project are provided for review.  We work hard to keep you informed so there are no surprises at this stage.  The final invoice will be issued upon approval of the numbers.  

Any items that may be outstanding are assigned a value and deducted from the final invoice amount until they are completed.

FIRST STEP
SECOND STEP

We will still be around for a bit.  As much as we try to be completely out of your hair, there are usually still some small items to complete.  A trades day is booked to complete the majority of items at one time for the least disruption.

SECOND STEP
THIRD STEP

Your designers are here to help set up your new space with custom furniture, window coverings, and décor. 

We love to showcase our client’s projects. If approved, we will stage and photograph your new space.
