Interior Design is a discipline that creates attractive and stimulating environments. While that is certainly the obvious outcome, it is only one consideration in truly successful space design.
Most of what is really crucial to good design is not apparent to the eye but rather in the day to day activities that occur in the space. In reality the designer's primary function is to ensure that every facet of the surroundings promotes productivity, efficiency, safety and ease of operation. There are the true indices of design achievement. State more succinctly, interiors designed for business.

In fact, in many ways the process can be as valuable as the outcome.
NOT DIRTY WORDS
Cost control is fundamental. It starts with vigilant monitoring from the onset of planning and continues through the final build-out. Preliminary budgets are established at the beginning of the project and actively monitored for viability through each successive step. In addition, continuous monitoring of schedules identifies issues that might affect cost or the delivery of the milestone dates.
