Specialised Client Services
Key to a successful project is our commitment to ongoing communication with clients at all stages of the project.
These key disciplines include:
- Architectural and Design support and assistance
- Design Solutions
- Estimating Support
- Project Management and Delivery
- GoToMeeting Teleconferences
Architectural and Design Support and Assistance
We support our business partners with a range of technical advice and support services for architects, consultants, contractors and installers. We assist with the recommendations regarding materials, shapes, colours, finishes and dimension layout.
We also assist with the creation of design proposals, visualisations and installation drawings. Our service also covers for the training of installers to work on a building site if required.
Our estimating process looks at the entire proposed design, quality of product, programme, budget and aesthetic requirements.
Options are provided with value engineering through presentations involving alternative finishes for the client’s approval.
A range of finishes, materials, CAD drawings and techniques is submitted to the client that closely matches the selected design while keeping within the client’s budget.
Project Management – How we will work with you for a happy outcome!
Strong project management is a critical component of any construction project, but especially so in a custom wood ceiling. Our experienced and knowledgeable project managers excel at navigating the intricacies involved in a successful project.
Beyond placing the correct people in our project management positions, we have also surrounded them with plenty of support systems and personnel to make sure we can offer you the best customer service in our industry.
Directly assisting each of our Project Managers is a dedicated Project Coordinator. These highly organised communicators are the first point of contact for our customers and will ensure a timely and accurate flow of information throughout your project.
Design Solutions – Customising to suit the client all the way
Decor Systems is an Engineered-to-Order manufacturer. That means we are 100% custom. We don’t stock product; we don’t inventory panels. Everything we produce is to your specification, precisely.
To that end, we are excited to be involved as early as possible in your design process. Our Design Solutions Consultants can help you make knowledgeable decisions that will support your design intent while remaining technically viable. Whether you need design samples, architectural budgeting numbers or just some CAD details, we’re happy to help you along the way.
Our pre-finishing department excels at achieving the look you’re after. Our self-imposed high standards of finishing are a perfect way to bring out the natural beauty of the wood you select.
Whether you need an interior or exterior finish, fire rating or specific colour match, our finishes team has proven time and again to be able to deliver. From matching custom colour controls to staining to imitate specie or laminate as a value engineering strategy, we can help your finish meet your technical and aesthetic requirements.
Decor Systems has brought the traditional pre-construction meeting into the 21st century with our GoToMeeting teleconferences. For selected projects, it is the time and place to make sure all parties are engaged and knowledgeable about what needs to happen to keep your ceiling on track.
These teleconferences are a focused, efficient meeting between all the key stakeholders in the ceiling project. In just an hour, we can help all parties connect to engage just a few items critical to success — including schedule and the approvals process.
In this online meeting, we’ll be able to explain clearly the steps needed to achieve a delivery that is on spec, on time and on budget. We’ll walk through the various processes, and make sure we have the right strategy for your project.
We establish a work environment that supports excellence
Our employees expect our work environment to promote personal achievement, continual learning and a feeling of self-worth. Employees have the right to express their good-faith opinions about how we can improve our own performance and the performance of the company. We actively listen, respond, encourage teamwork and make decisions based on facts and data.
