Service and Team

Depending on the client’s objectives, SQD  are appointed as design consultants or  instructed to develop and implement a full concept design, liaising with structural engineers, M&E, audio-visual and other members of a project team, including artisans and specialists.   Depending on the desired approach, the team liaise directly with the client[s] and develop a comprehensive design service budget before proceeding with design development.   The budget is closely managed throughout the course of the project to remain in line with the client[s] expectations.

SQD have a dedicated and experienced team providing hand-drawn illustrations and scale drawings, along with CAD detailing, elevations and plans.  Both services are provided depending on the clients preferred method of design development.  Although the hand-drawn method is becoming less expected within modern-day design services and training, we believe that the skill should still be available to the client as it allows a further personal and creative dimension to the development stage of any project.

SQD closely monitors the construction phase of the job to ensure the integrity of the design is being upheld, and the quality of the detailing within the fabrication stage is continuously supervised.   Our constant involvement allows any issues to be resolved as quickly as possible and the quality of the overall finish to be controlled.   Contractors and specialists are managed throughout the process by our qualified team.

The SQD team are trained in furniture design, both in connection with bespoke joinery and free-standing furniture, furnishings and lighting.  We also have experience in developing and producing bespoke fabric and carpet designs for a truly ‘one-off’ aesthetic. Along with commissioning fully bespoke furniture items, SQD also provide a full procurement service, sourcing contemporary furniture, antiques, artwork, accessories etc. In association with procurement, we present a program which is co-ordinated with site works or client requirements, enabling an optimum effective installation process and controlled timings of deliveries and installations.
