Source8 is our real estate, technology and risk management consultancy. We will facilitate structured scoping workshops with you along with meeting key stakeholders and end users to capture your expectations and aspirations for your work environment. We will agree key drivers and measures of success from the outset. Ensuring our clients understand how design influences a workplace solution is important to us. How an office operates, now and in the future, will influence design choices from desking solutions to furniture selection. Our expert design team and workplace strategy insight team work together to deliver a unique service. From the initial briefing, we will provide you with a dedicated project team who will support you through the process. To ensure we have captured all of your expectations and needs, we will submit an initial design report and proposal to you at the conclusion of the briefing workshops. Working with you, we will agree on the initial brief before our designers get to work.
Once we have gathered enough information, the design team will formulate ideas and propose solutions. Our designers will work with you to identify the best value options, review them in line with the initial brief, whilst obtaining input from facilities management and real estate services teams’ strategic direction. Where applicable, we will design a number of options to provide you with a range of possible solutions.All of our design solutions will be modelled to enable you to envisage how the designs will come to life and what it will look like. Each design option will carry an implication in terms of cost, lead time and risk. Every design feasibility report that we produce will include coordinated information advising you of the broad cost of delivery, lead times, including any phasing and key dates and a comprehensive risk assessment.
Once we will conduct a comprehensive review of the operational strategy and an implementation plan is produced. Critically, this provides you with regular engagement, governance and a view on the development of the design.
Once the principal of a test fit is agreed, we will undertake a due diligence review of your workplace. This is to review specific on site requirements and incorporate them in the proposed design.
All design development needs to consider broader business and asset strategy. The design concept that we produce will take into account building lifespan, lease requirements and overall business strategy to ensure that the right level of investment is appropriate.
We will produce 3D visuals of the space where required, working with our network of internal and external teams. This can be coordinated with an outline schedule of costs so that as the design develops, a live up to date schedule of costs can be maintained.
Once a design concept is agreed, the costs and lead time approved, S we can then begin to develop the detailed design. Every aspect of the design can be developed to provide a detailed proposal that meets your needs.
Our in-house delivery team can provide a unique service that understands local market regulations and conditions whilst ensuring global standards of quality and delivery.
The detailed design phase allows design proposals to be further developed to ensure they can be implemented successfully. It should be noted that this level of service will not be required for all projects.
We coordinate the production of a full set of specifications and bill of materials.
Working with our local partners, we have a proven track record in developing a design that considers all aspects of their construction and the coordination with all parts of the build.
