The Project Process

Our project process starts with the assignment of a project coordinator and design team members being inducted to the project. A clear written brief is developed, establishing the exact project requirements; scope of works, budget, programme, key stakeholders, communication and instruction process, risks and unknowns/future. This will likely involve a series of briefing meetings and general consultation. Each stage of the design development process will have a formal sign off prior to proceeding to the next stage.

The initial concept designs will be developed with a series of sketch drawings and/or preliminary Revit layouts. These will be combined with equipment specifications and preliminary budgets to confirm that the proposed direction is achievable from both a financial and operational performance. PDI also consider future development and growth or expansion plans within agreed limitations.

Once a concept is confirmed, PDI develops preliminary design plans. These plans allow services loadings to be accurately established for the building services team to progress their scheme design. The equipment selection and cooking line extraction systems proposed will have considered site-specific services requirements such as any restrictions, any specific filtration, local anomalies such as water restriction, town or bottle gas services and any environmental performance goals identified in the project brief.

After approval of the preliminary design, PDI commences the developed design to achieve a sign off of the final scheme. This would incorporate all other design team considerations of a similar stage, i.e., structural and services beams, bulkheads, columns, pilasters, ducts. The detailed design stage would include all final documentation including specifications, schedule and data sheets.
