Project Process

Every project undertaken by Stonehouse is approached in the same structured manner, however large or small.

We have a proven method of working, so rest assured you and your project will be looked after professionally every step of the way.

Phase 1

Phase 1

Ideas, ideas and more ideas!

Whether you have outgrown current space, looking for a refresh or a complete refurbishment, your thoughts and aspirations need careful consideration.

We will visit your site, ask lots of questions to gain a good feel for what you're looking for.

Brainstorming your vision and allowing us to help advise you is a great starting point.

Phase 2

Phase 2

From your ideas to design concept

So, the ideas are flowing and we have an initial brief and understanding of what you want to achieve.

Working with these, we can create a final workspace brief.  This is a benchmark against which the success of the project is measured. 

From concept design drawings and presentation of product options/materials, we visually bring the best of your ideas together including product and material specification.

Phase 3

Phase 3

Design agreed; cost negotiation and approval

Design and specification signed off, it's now down to agreeing costs. Value for money is one of the single most important aspects of undertaking any project. We are honest, transparent and informative in our quotations.

There are no hidden extras and we will challenge where we feel key works are being omitted or overlooked that could hinder the project. Nothing is left to chance; a strength we are regular commended on.


Phase 4

Phase 4

Getting ready to start

We will commence mobilisation of works in a logical, structured manner to minimise time and keep costs to budget.

Each stage of the project will have time and milestone dates allocated for all aspects of works. We believe in transparency and the free flowing of information to help both you and Stonehouse keep up to speed.

A structured programme of works clearly stating key milestone dates is developed with you highlighting which works are happening when.

With design, quotation and programme issued and approved, you will have the re-assurance to proceed knowing everything is clear and ready to go.

Phase 5

Phase 5

Commencement of Works

An organised approach and attention to detail will ensure a smooth start and orderly progression of works.

Experienced project and site managers keep tight control of site, sub-contactor teams and deliveries with health and safety being of top focus.

Communication between Stonehouse and you is regular and informative. Reporting weekly progress and attending meetings helps you stay close and in control.

Phase 6

Phase 6

Completion on time; Completion on budget

Once completion is achieved we're committed to ensuring last minute additions or snagging works are dealt with promptly so we can hand over your lovely new space as quickly as possible.

Analysis of actual cost verses budget is part of our completion process supporting our desire to review and measure service, delivery and project cost management.

Your thoughts and feedback are hugely important and as such we always welcome client review meetings to share collective experiences.

Phase 7

Phase 7

Over to you!

Handing over your project and leaving you feeling impressed and happy is our greatest reward. We have lived and breathed your project throughout its duration so handover is an exciting time to see the fruits of our labour and the completed space matching perfectly to its intended design.
