drawing stages of a project. Inspirational images and architectural
styles are refined at this point. Blueprints are helpful. You
may also elect to draw a layout of the space, marking doors, tubs,
toilets, vanities/cabinets, pedestal sinks, electrical outlets, and
For commercial projects, a subsequent technical
review based on application and use is performed. Discussions with
contractor/architect are necessary.
Renderings - For larger scale projects, we will
present a concept board for each room and renderings of the spaces.
This is performed in conjunction with the designer and client. We
specialize in the hard surface design and become an additional asset
to you and your designer in the creation process.
Budget Review - Once a vision has been created,
we will work together with the designer and client to determine the
proper allowance per area.
Detailed installation specifications/drawings are
provided for the architect and contractor. Additional services are
available, such as Job site installation consultation, as required.

multiple sections to render the entire space.
For borders note if the surface is a wall or
floor and the proper placement of the border on the template. For
example, if you would like the border to start 4" from the wall,
label the drawing accordingly.
The direction of the field mosaics to be
installed inside or outside of a border should be noted (straight or
on a diagonal.)
Label the layout with any reference numbers, room
names, name of the designer or architect.
