Design Development

Design Development

Our teams understand the processes involved in taking the design of a project from the architect’s inception through to construction. Our experience building complicated fit-out projects makes us an asset to the design development process as we are able to advise the client and architect of the most appropriate ways to construct different elements of the project taking into account construction capability, quality, sustainability, price, and programme.

Our drawings are a useful tool when setting out different elements of a project and when making clarifications with the architect.

We have excellent management tools in place to track the design development process and ensure we have accurate records of drawings, sketches, and document submittals.

We can provide:

  • Sketches and CAD to illustrate design development and propose final product.
  • Swift Crafted Drawings & Drawing Registers.
  • An O&M Manual upon project completion which includes Swift Crafted drawings.
  • Design development solutions from experienced professionals.

Quality and Control

Quality and Control

At Swift Crafted Ltd we pride ourselves on being proactive in maintaining our reputation for high quality and well managed projects. With over thirty years of experience we fully understand the importance of developing, maintaining and following procedures in order to continually and consistently deliver projects that will satisfy the most demanding of clients.

It is a requirement of all our project managers to maintain at all times an accurate programme that is then actively used to manage the job.

Up to date programmes are reviewed by the senior management team on a monthly basis to ensure that individual projects are meeting their targets and that any problems are being dealt with in ways that achieve the client’s objectives.

As part of our efforts to ensure that the work is managed efficiently and to provide the client with clear and accurate progress reports it is our policy for the project team to maintain a project check list enabling the client to clearly see the elements of work that are complete, in progress, available or where work is not able to proceed.

All projects will issue a project specific Quality and Management Plan which clearly sets out how quality will be managed and achieved.
