The client outlined their vision for the apartment, how it would be used, the available budget, the desired timeframe and their initial ideas. We then prepared preliminary sketches and a budget, as well as a design brief with mood images, which served as a starting point for the London-based interior designer.
An escape from the city in Flims Waldhaus. Just an hour and a half from Zurich.
Our clients were in the process of purchasing two adjacent lower ground floor apartments, complete with beautiful private gardens and magnificent views towards the Safiental in Graubünden. We were asked to manage the project, handling initial negotiations with the seller, co-ordinating the various parties, supervising the design and providing construction management services. We saw the project right through to interior fit-out and handover.
The interior designer developed design ideas and concepts, refining them further in consultation with the client. We ensured they were in line with the client’s vision, budget and planning, and we liaised with the general contractor and architect to make sure the proposals were feasible from a technical standpoint.
The design concept was translated into technical design plans, in consultation with the architect, engineers and general contractor. Tenders were received from both general and specialist contractors, while we oversaw all aspects of the work in order to achieve a final budget and planning based on the approved design.
In our role as construction manager we were on-site 2 – 3 days a week, overseeing the general contractor’s work and that of the specialist contractors and suppliers. We ensured all work was co-ordinated, on time, on budget, and met the expected design and quality.
We reviewed all of the work and prepared a snags list with the general and other specialist contractors. We reviewed final accounts and invoices to ensure they corresponded with the work carried out and the contracts. We made sure all manuals and warranties were provided, and finally, we installed the furniture, fixtures and equipment.
