More than just a ‘place of business’

Your premises connects your customers and clients with what you do.

It brings your brand to life.

Businesses

Your brand is the entire experience you offer potential and current customers.

What could be more essential to this experience than your premises?

More than just a ‘place of business’, your premises connects your customers with what you do, in a way that no visual branding can.

It’s immediate. It’s tangible. It’s immersive.

But so many business owners miss out on this potential when designing their premises, because they don’t consider what kind of experience they want to create.

And without this knowledge, they can’t design a business premises that brings it to life.

Create an experience

That’s where i.Balter Design comes in.

Throughout the process, I consider what you do, who you serve and the customer experience you want to create.

The end result is:

  • A design that showcases exactly what makes your business distinct and delivers the best possible service to your customers.
  • A finalised design that aligns with your budget and timeframe.
  • Clear timeframes, milestones and expectations through working with me - and only me - from start to finish.
Create your business with me

Here’s what the process looks like

Step 1

Dream

We work together to strategise and design.

  • Understanding the planning (change of use, approval for additional car parking or external signage) and building (fire, DDA and structural compliance) requirements specific to your site.
  • Clarity on your vision. Deep diving on how you want your space to function, look and feel.
  • Conversations around team of specialist consultants, timeframes and budget.
  • Exploring concept designs that align with your vision, site constraints, timeframes and budget.

Step 2

Design

Adding layers detail to the design concept.

  • Further development of your concept design and documentation. (Including liaising with specialist consultants and the integration of their designs and report.)
  • The application of Town Planning (as required) and working with local council to obtain final approval and endorsed plans.

Step 3

Create

Preparing for the start of construction.

  • The final development of your design and documentation in order to secure a building permit. (Including liaising with external consultants like structural engineers, heating/cooling consultants, energy assessors.)
  • Making final choices for all materials, fixtures and flooring.
  • Sourcing and engaging a preferred builder so that the Building Permit application can be lodged and issued.

Step 2:Design

We work together to communicate your brand through a complete design concept.

I consider function, aesthetics and customer experience, as I develop structural and interior designs. At this stage, I’m also ensuring your space will be compliant and the build cost-effective.

This is where we’re developing the designs beyond our initial creative concept. I’m engaging external consultants to interpret the design as required, obtaining quotes and ensuring compliance at every step of the process.

I’m also making interior design choices, guided by your intention for the look and feel of the space.

Step 3: Create

We work together to bring your building design to life.

Managing the design and build execution yourself is the most stressful part of the process. But that’s exactly why you engaged me - so that you can rest easy in this part, trusting that your vision is in safe hands.

I’m purposeful with how I involve my clients in the creation stage. I consider how to keep you involved, without demanding that your time and energy be spent in ways that don’t make sense.

At this stage of the project, I’ll make any necessary changes in line with town planning approvals and other compliance regulations, and developing the final design detail so that we can secure a building permit and pass on the plans to your builder.

I’ll also be liaising with external consultants like structural engineers, heating/cooling consultants and energy assessors. And, making the final choices for internal materials, appliances, fixtures and flooring.

This is where my attention to detail thrives - I keep a finger on the pulse of the overarching project, but I also dive into the details of execution and collaboration (so you don’t have to).

Connections

"The benefit of engaging Emily was a well-designed and unique dental practice.

She saw the design process so differently to corporate companies like Medifit and I believe that is what sets our practice apart from others.

From the beginning of the project, Emily was quick to educate herself with dental practice standards and regulations. She was mindful of my timelines and budget throughout the project, maintaining constant communication with my practice manager and myself.

Emily used her passion for design and her creativity to solve challenges as they arose. Throughout the entire process, she was always very professional, personable and approachable.”
