Free Initial Consultation 

The initial design meeting is a consultation where you can meet Jess and vice versa.  She takes time to look at your space, discuss budgets, timing, and all the details to see if we are a fit.  

As Built Floor Plans

Many clients have no floor plan to start with.  DBI will survey your space and the as built conditions, enter it into CAD, and provide you with a to scale floor plan and square footage as a start point for your project.

Programming, Test Fits, & Schematic Floor Plans

DBI can provide you with design options for a space showing different layouts and feature elements based upon your requirements.  We can survey the space for input into CAD or work with an existing scaled floorplan or dwg file if available.

Finish Selections

Different types of spaces require different types of finishes.  DBI will provide you with suggestions and options that will be appropriate for your space, desired aesthetic, and budget.  

Furniture Selections

Commercial spaces require furniture with higher durability than the standard residential application requires.   DBI will provide you with suggestions and options that will be applicable to your needs, desired aesthetic and budget. Additional services of bid preparation & analysis for commercial furniture packages, kitchen cabinet evalutations, window treatments specifications, and artwork/accessories selections are also offered.

Construction Documents 

Once a schematic floor plan is determined, the design development begins. During design development power/data requirements are determined, finishes & furniture selections are made, and reflected ceiling plans are developed.  The final result is a set of plans called CDs.   CDs are the plans that contractors will price from and will ultimately build the project from in the end.  DBI has strong relationships with local partnering architects who can review, sign & seal plans should you require those services.

Construction Administration

Once your project is under construction with the contractor of your choice, DBI will perform site visits, attend project meetings and troubleshoot with the selected project team for all items that require attention until your project is complete to ensure your space is constructed exactly as designed. Additional services under CA can include on site oversight of furniture and equipment installations and punch list creation.
