Intro 1Since its creation 15 years ago Vision Projects Limited have
established itself as one of the leading interiors fit out contractor
in the Midlands.

development of the Design Department within the company.

“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
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.
...design 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...

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.

KOHLER® products offer intrinsic quality born of tradition.
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.
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.
Research into the client company provides a solid foundation
for the generation of design concepts and ensures that the

From the research gathered on a company and their brand the design team can assemble mood
boards that encapsulate the client current market perceptions. This is then coupled with the clients
design aspirations as established in the brief. Together they paint a picture of what the design
concept should achieve and provide a positive direction to move forward.
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.

“Where ever possible we have sought to keep departments together and
management close to their teams. We have included collaborative and
breakout spaces close at hand to each department to ensure that everyone
has equal access to the buildings facilities. Departments and open plan areas
have been divided up using a clever combination of light and airy glazed
partitioning and practical storage walls. This maximised Natural light and
Storage in all areas....”
Space Plan 6After the needs of the client have been established and the design direction chosen
the next stage is to move onto 2D space planning. 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. Example of a Space
Plan and the

From the sketches a 3D Model can be produced which gives
a great indication of the environment. When the layout
has been finalised the model can be rendered to give an
indication of materials, finishes and colours.

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.

Sample Boards9‘Visions of Flowers’ + Boarder
Carpet tiles By Desso
Sample boards are used by the design team to present the proposed Materials, Finishes, Fabrics and Fittings to the client
prior to signing off. 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.

When the situation calls for it Vision can produce high quality photo-
realistic renders to give the client an idea of exactly what there project
could look like upon completion. These take a little longer to produce
but the benefit of presenting these to a client cannot be overstated. Its
as close as you will get to seeing the finished article before the project
has even begun!

The design team at Vision
are also able to help clients
to a buildings exterior.
This is often a great way
for clients to be able to
appreciate the visual impact
exterior upgrades can have
for a business.
