Project Update on our Canadian Interior Design project
Over the past 2 years, the DKOR Team has been working relentlessly from abroad on our international interior design project in Canada. Its pretty exciting to be working on such a spectacular project but I’m not going to lie, its been difficult staying motivated from afar without actually being able to just get in your car and make a site visit. We couldn’t be prouder though of our team and how we’ve all worked together to stay on top of everything, taking turns on long conference calls and making sure to keep our clients engaged and equally excited.
Its been over a year since we’ve introduced this project to you and since then we’ve made a few site visits. These visits are usually day long meetings with our local GC from Vertical Projects reviewing all of the details and how our design intent on drawings actually play out onsite.Trouble shooting “onsite conditions,” that don’t necessarily line up with our original design intent is on the top of our list. We also meet with subcontractors on the project to review carpentry and any finish questions they may have.
Our last site visit was in mid-November of last year. Now I’m going to make a personal confession; I was avoiding at all costs visiting Canada in the winter. I was petrified of the cold and had not been near the snow since I was about 4 years old (over 30 years ago if you’d like to do the math)! The idea of being in -10 degree weather was petrifying. I went to the extreme of letting my passport expire and trying to use that as an excuse of why I was unable to go. Obviously that did not jive well and only bought me an additional week. Passports are available in the nearby regional office in Miami within about a week with proof of travel. ;-/ It turns out there was nothing to be afraid of, with the right clothing its really not so bad so bring on some more Canadian Interior Design projects!!
Next Step: Staging! Stay Tuned for behind the scenes photos coming soon ; August 18th-22nd.
