Our success is not merely a stroke of luck but a testament to our unwavering dedication to excellence. We meticulously orchestrate every detail of our projects, ensuring they unfold seamlessly, on time, and within the confines of the allocated budget. Too often, renovations falter due to unforeseen complications arising during the demolition phase. Yet, in our endeavors across the opulent landscape of NYC, we eschew such setbacks through meticulous planning and foresight.

Phase 1 - Inspections, Diagnostic Testing, and Risk Management.

A realm where precision reigns supreme: Inspections, Diagnostic Testing, and Risk Management. Here, we embark on a journey of thorough examination and evaluation, leaving no stone unturned in our quest for perfection. Each property undergoes a battery of tests, conducted with surgical precision and exacting standards. From probing walls to the meticulous extraction of flooring and wall samples for asbestos analysis, we leave nothing to chance. These tests are the cornerstone of our commitment to excellence, performed only once our esteemed client assumes ownership and entrusts us with their vision.

Within this sacred realm, the very essence of our meticulousness is laid bare:

  • Electrical Load Test: We delve into the depths of electrical infrastructure, ensuring it stands poised to accommodate the grandeur of our proposed design without falter or flicker.

  • Asbestos Test: Like archaeologists of old, we sift through layers of history, determining whether the fabric of our designs is woven with the threads of asbestos, warranting either tender remediation or a careful dance around its presence.

  • Wall Probes: With the precision of a surgeon's scalpel, we penetrate the barriers of time and space, uncovering hidden truths within walls slated for transformation, ensuring no unforeseen obstruction mars the path to perfection.

In every facet of our process, from conception to execution, we weave a tapestry of opulence and precision, ensuring that each project emerges as a beacon of elegance and sophistication amidst the bustling tapestry of New York City.

Phase 2 - Formal Design And Material Procurement

In the realm of interior renovations, the pursuit of perfection lies in the meticulous curation of materials that breathe life into the chosen design ethos. From the subtle hues of paint to the bold statement of accent walls, from the understated elegance of flooring to the intricate details of fixtures, every element is carefully selected to harmonize with the envisioned aesthetic. As a premier full-service design-build firm in the vibrant heart of NYC, we shoulder the responsibility of not just envisioning but also sourcing and procuring every enduring fixture that graces your abode.

Our comprehensive expertise extends beyond mere material selection; it empowers us to seamlessly integrate architectural and interior design adjustments into the fabric of your renovation journey. Whether it's reimagining the flow of your kitchen space, crafting a bespoke archway leading to the sanctuary of your bathroom, or transforming a neglected closet into a haven for your washer/dryer, we deftly navigate these transformations with finesse. Our award-winning in-house design team and architects handle all architectural planning and filings on your behalf, ensuring a seamless fusion of form and function.

Building upon the foundation laid in preceding phases, we embark on a journey of refinement, culminating in the crystallization of your vision into tangible reality. This phase unfolds through a series of immersive design meetings, where our design studio and outside showrooms serve as the canvas for your dreams to take shape. From lifelike 2D and 3D renderings that offer a glimpse into the future, to the meticulous review and approval of material options and design plans, every step is imbued with precision and passion.

As the final strokes are applied to the canvas of your renovation, we oversee the procurement of all selected finishes and fixtures, ensuring that each element arrives with the promise of excellence. With meticulous care, we receive and inspect every ordered finish and fixture, safeguarding the integrity of your vision and setting the stage for the grand unveiling of your transformed space.

Phase 3 - Building Submission

This pivotal phase unfolds in tandem with the design stage, its significance paralleling the meticulous crafting of architectural plans. While the groundwork for building alteration submission commences early in the planning phase, it's only when architectural blueprints reach their zenith of refinement that we embark on the final leg of this regulatory journey, navigating the intricate pathways of approvals both within the building management hierarchy and the esteemed halls of the NYC Department of Buildings.

Within this phase, we engage in a delicate dance with the building management company and their designated reviewing architects, striving to fulfill every requirement necessary for formal approval. For our clients residing in private homes, this juncture holds a different significance, bypassing the intermediary steps inherent in multifamily dwelling submissions.

Once the nod of approval is secured from the building management, we pivot our focus towards the bureaucratic labyrinth of the NYC Department of Buildings. Here, we navigate the intricacies of the approval and permitting process with precision and finesse, ensuring that every 'i' is dotted and every 't' is crossed in our pursuit of regulatory compliance and project readiness.

Phase 4 - DOB Submission, Approval, And Permits

Traversing the intricate web of co-op boards, management companies, and municipal agencies demands a deft touch and unwavering attention to detail. That's why we shoulder the responsibility of overseeing the entire production and submission process for architectural plans, as well as securing the requisite building, plumbing, and electrical permits from the esteemed NYC Department of Buildings. In certain cases, this undertaking extends to navigating the nuanced terrain of landmark-related approvals with the discerning oversight of the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC).

Phase 5 - Production Calendar & Logistics

With meticulous attention to detail, our project management team crafts a comprehensive and detailed timeline, meticulously charting the course of every stage of the renovation journey. From pivotal client meetings and meticulous inspections to the orchestrated choreography of delivery, demolition, and installation, every aspect is seamlessly integrated into the fabric of our production calendar. By adhering to this meticulously crafted timeline, our seasoned project managers adeptly coordinate all stakeholders, ensuring a harmonious symphony of efforts that culminate in the timely achievement of milestones throughout the entirety of the project.
