In my final article about the interior design process, I’m going to look at what happens Post-Completion after a project comes to a close.
At the ‘end of defects’ period (if applicable, this is generally 6 or 12 months from completion), the interior designer will return to visit and identify any defects with the contractor. They will also monitor the completion of works and sign off to allow payment of any retention monies.
In my own experience, working as part of the Leisure Concepts team, my involvement with a project doesn’t simply end at the post-completion stage. For example, when I start working with a holiday park, this is usually the beginning of a long-term relationship. As seasons come and go, along with interior design trends, accommodation and facilities need to echo my client’s changing needs. So, I am often brought back to work on the same spaces year after year. I might be required to simply refresh the interiors at the end of the holiday season, or to completely revamp the look and feel of a space as part of a major refurbishment.
Here are a few examples of holiday sites, which I have helped to develop year on year:
Haven Haggerston Castle
A full refurbishment of the showbar including forming new bars, moving the stage all new finishes & furniture.
A major redevelopment of the main complex entrance area, family entertainment zones & casual dining spaces. Included an all-new sports bar, a virtual reality gaming cellar & a massive indoor play structure all under the new space inflated roof
Year 1 – Bar venue
Year 2 – Family Dining Restaurant & Bar
Year 3 – Family Gardens
Haven Thornwick Bay
Year 1 – Family Dining Restaurant & Bar, Arcade, Activities Area, Main Entrance & Coffee Shop
