Interior design is a multi-faceted profession in which creative and procedural solutions are applied to achieve a specific interior environment. Everyone is looking for luxury—figuring out what style suits your needs can be difficult. Lauren will work with you to maximize your space, find product, and transform your project. Anything to meet your needs she will work hard to find.
With a background in AutoCAD and her experience working on job sites, Lauren will manage each part of your project from start to finish. She will develop drawings, direct, coordinate, and work with the contractors to guarantee the job is done right. She will direct all design and construction processes, including the selection, hiring, and oversight of specialty trade contractors, such as carpentry, plumbing, or electrical.
Choosing the most competent contractor for any job can be confusing. Lauren will manage and collect the bids from the different trades to ensure the best possible price is found for your job. Presenting the client with these offerings to ensure their budget is met is how we will start the process together.
MANAGING AND HIRING OF CONTRACTORS AND SUBCONTRACTORS
Lauren has a long list of reliable and hard-working contractors and subcontractors whom she will hire and manage throughout the design process. She will assist the client in selecting the right people with the required resources to meet the needs of the job. She will make sure to schedule their time, meet them on the job site, and ensure that the work is done to perfection.
Lauren will begin your project by analyzing the project as a whole. She can provide a comprehensive review of the project's direct or indirect costs and substantiate whether they will suit your needs. She will monitor all costs against your initial budget conversations to ensure we stay on track through the tenure of the project.
Construction documents are the detailed working drawings that define the work to be constructed. They may include partitions, plans, power plans, reflected ceiling plans, material and finished plans, and furniture layout plans as well as elevations, sections, and details. Lauren will come up with plans or review existing plans from architects to make changes and enhance design, or to make sure that job is done right.
