  3. 3. Page 5Page 4 InnovativeBuildingSolutions Brief 2 “Create an environment that is better than fit for purpose, a great place to work!” Every project starts by meeting with the client to establish objectives and outline in a clear brief which encapsulates the clients goals for the projects. By first listening to the clients needs and understanding what they hope to achieve we can ensure from the outset that everyone is on the same page and that our vision for the project is in line with there’s. Experience has taught us that projects are constantly changing and evolving but setting a clear brief at the start gives a good benchmark for development. A successful brief will state clearly what all parties realistically want to achieve given the constraints of time, budget, space, resources and logistics. How will it be used? How many people will you have occupying the space? What are their individual requirements? We want to encurage collaboration, the space will house x10 Sale Staff x4 Researchers and x3 Mangers. Each manager needs their own private space. Everyone will need access to a Breakout Area. What do you want this Space to say about your Business? How would you want a visitor to perceive it? Do you have a colour scheme in mind? We want the space to Echo the companies modern ap- proach to business. We want to be perceived as the market leaders. We want our corporate colours used throughout. Example Brief: an open plan space for x17 staff members which includes x3 cellular offices. All staff should have access to a modern and trendy kitchenette/seating area. The space should express the clients branding and reflect their position as market leaders...

  4. 4. Page 7Page 6 InnovativeBuildingSolutions Survey 3Where ever possible the design team likes to spend some time surveying the site and making observations of the user and how they operate. The point of this exercise is to gain a greater understanding of the needs of the user which are often overlooked in the construction of the brief or unknown to the client. Measurements, photographs and notes are taken away from the site visit to aid the design team back in the office. These are used to create in-sites and overviews which lead to a more in depth and suitable design proposal.

Sales Staff have regular communication with each other No storage space for empty water bottles... Taking measurements on site allows for accurate drawings to be produced back at the office. Collecting site photographs means we can share them with the team back in the office. It also allows us to reflect on the site visit afterwards. By listening to what Staff have to say and recording their responses we can better understand the needs of the primary users and develope a better design.

Skills passed down through generations combine with innovative techniques and timeless design to establish the enduring character for which Kohler is known. There is no substitute for the knowing hand that sculpts the rim of a washbasin or the eye that measures the thickness of enamel on red-hot cast iron as if by instinct. This experience is bold. This experience is art. Est. 1873... ThePast... ThePresent Research 4Before a design concept can be drafted the Vision team first undergo a period of design research. The aim of this exercise is to ensure that the design concepts are fully in line with the client company’s branding, beliefs and market positioning.

The accumulation of key descriptive words provides a checklist that any design concept should adhere to ensure it stays within the parameters of the brief. Mood Board 5

Taking into consideration the specific needs of the people who use the space and how the business operates on a day to day basis a logical space plan can be crafted with help of the client. 2D space plans are a great way to rapidly visualise how the available space can be optimised to best fulfil the brief and suit the needs of the client. Space plan takes into account, people, objectives, time scales, budget, furniture, IT, power and data. Benefits of an intelligently planned workplace include increased productivity, staff recruitment and retention, and a happier healthier working environment.

Company Log on the Welcome Desk A series of quick 3D sketches are produced by the design team to rapidly visualise different aspects of the chosen layout. These are not set in stone, concept development is key to meeting the needs of the client and making sure the best solution has been reached. Once we have a general idea of how the space will be used, the 3D development can begin.

If you know how you want your space to look, but aren’t sure what’s out there, the Vision Design team can help. We are able to pool products from an extensive range of suppliers to provide you with a selection of options that match your requirements. We start by presenting the client with a small sample of possible options and then we take it from there based on your feedback. You don’t have to be a design Guru, you just need to know what you like and what you don’t!

This a useful exercise which ensures that the client is aware of exactly what they will be getting when the project is delivered. The design team have an extensive collection of samples ranging from carpet tiles to door handles. Sample boards give the client a good opportunity to get ‘hands on’ with the design. Something that looked great on the computer screen my not be what was expected in reality. The design team also have the ability to show the client alternative finishes. This is something we regularly do with furniture where the sheer range of choice can be overwhelming.
