Intake: We begin the process by meeting with our clients to define their needs, space constraints, and budget limits. We complete a detailed needs analysis to understand the intended usage of the space, the number of people who will use the space, desired circulation patterns, and elements required to provide a solution that is both cohesive and comprehensive. We get to know our clients intimately, so that we can understand their aspirations, preferences, and ideals, and eventually, express these concepts through our design.
Planning and Assessment: The second step in our process involves developing a detailed understanding of the client’s space. We visit the location, take detailed measurements, map out the arc of the natural light, and identify focal points, among other assessment procedures. We then perform a series of reality checks to determine if the client’s budget is in alignment with the expected deliverables. After we have worked with the client to chart a realistic course of action, we create scale plans, schematics, and computer-aided designs. After collaboration with the client and other service providers, we complete the final design.
Asset Selection: Asset selection requires keen attention to detail; this includes the client’s preferences as well as budget and space constraints. This phase of the process includes selecting and coordinating furniture, equipment, flooring, paint and wall coverings, and accessories. We also work with the client to ensure that lighting needs and power requirements are met. We estimate circulation patterns to ensure that end-user needs for privacy, engagement, and teamwork are accommodated.
Delivery and Installation: We take the anxiety out of delivery and installation. Perry P. Savoy, the Founder and President of the Peristyle, personally oversees every element of the installation of furniture, equipment, and installation. He carefully inspects all deliveries both before and after installation to minimize dents, scratches, and breaks. When damage is detected, our process ensures that replacements are provided in a timely manner.
Completion: Our projects end with approval and sign-off. We close our engagements with a performance evaluation, and we work with our clients’ office managers, property managers, and other personnel to make sure that they understand how to care for furniture, draperies, and carpets, how to get service for equipment, and how to re-order.
