Process

Engaging with an architectural technologist for design assistance is an important step and one of the earliest decisions clients will have to make to turn vision into reality.

A good team is the foundation of any successful design project. At Design Hall we value our clients and our contractors and are here to offer support during your design journey.

POWER OF EDUCATION + OPEN DISCUSSION

We love it when our clients bring in ideas, inspiration, and dreams. It’s our brand promise that we will incorporate our client’s visions of their perfect build into the end result. It’s our role to listen and provide professional input in any areas we think could cause problems, while incorporating as much inspiration as possible from our clients.

Services

I Initial Consultation

The process begins with a complimentary appointment to go over the details of your project in depth. This provides the opportunity for both parties to understand what goals you have for your ideal home, discuss the finer details, and ask any initial questions. At the conclusion Design Hall will provide a tailored quote within 2-3 business days.

II Conceptual Design

Taking all the ideas and information from the consultation we develop an initial concept for your review. From here, the design is refined through creative collaboration until all aspects are perfect. During this process Design Hall not only is offering our expertise, but ensuring all design solutions are fully visualized and understood before moving onto the next project phase.

III Blueprint Drafting

As soon as the conceptual design is set the next phase is for Design Hall to create the final architectural set of drawings for the build. This process involves adding all the needed notes, dimensions, and technical information required for your contractors and trades. End result: extremely high-quality plans that effortlessly translate into a functional, beautiful home.

IV Exterior Colour Selection

Working with Design Hall we pride ourselves on assisting you to create that perfect plan, but also want to ensure the outside look of your home matches up with your vision. Included as part of our services is providing recommended exterior color selections based on actual products available.

3D Exterior + Interior Renderings

Through our 3D visualization services Design Hall has the ability to bring your blueprints to life before construction. Today the amount of material choices available are endless for our homes. Even more so we want to ensure the all finishes we select translate from swatch to the finished end result.

With this service clients are able to experience their future spaces or see the outside of their home through detailed, full colour images. Finishes can be demonstrated and compared to ensure that the colours are perfect.
