Design Process

At StudioCraft, we combine standard office furniture with custom millwork to create designs uniquely suited to you. Standard product has limitations. That’s why we create custom applications tailored to your needs, and make it just as easy to order and manufacture as standard solutions. 

 
 
 

1. GETTING STARTED

Although we can start the design process with anything from napkin sketches to full millwork plans, we need the following for accurate and timely pricing:

Project Overview: Project background, scope, nuances, delivery information, and installation challenges

Finishes: Requested finishes (if known) or general concepts of desired finishes

Size: Floorplan, size (if known)

Standard Furniture Integration: If using systems frames, frame layout (with specification help from us)

Key Project Dates: Upcoming meetings, bid due date, installation timeframe

Client/Architect provides initial direction.

2. Concept Development

Based on the material you provide, we will create a rendering or put together a cut sheet of the concept we’re quoting for you.

3. Quote

Once you approve the initial visual direction and material selections, StudioCraft will provide detailed pricing for the project. The quote will include material specs, anticipated shipping fees, and lead times. 


4. Purchase Order

Once you have reviewed and aknowledged the quote, we ask you to provide a Purchase Order indicating the project type, quantity, and agreed pricing. 


5. Technical Drawings

Once we recieve the purchase order, we will create detailed approval drawings of the project. This is the point in the process where final approval is required.

6. Build

Once you approve the drawings, StudioCraft will assemble the entire unit in our shop to guarantee the highest quality fit and finish. After a quality check, we disassemble for safe shipping.

Shipping

We prefer to ship the product to your warehouse so local installers can deliver it to the jobs site. We can arrange direct-to-site shipments if necessary, but a dock, ramp for 53’ truck, and flexible receiving hours will be required.


Installation Options

We take three typical approaches to installation. Pricing will vary based on your selection.

Dealer Installation
Your standard furniture installation crew handles the install and set-up with StudioCraft available for remote support.

StudioCraft Lead
StudioCraft sends a project lead to work with your local crew, equipped with the technical knowledge and skills required to perform all aspects of the installation—including seaming any solid surface tops.

StudioCraft Install
StudioCraft provides a crew to complete a turnkey installation.


International Projects

We have completed projects around the globe and can help navigate logistics specific to your region.
