Our Services​

SmartDesign Keeps the Most Important Trades of Your Project in-House to Make Sure Your Project Stays on Track, Avoids Change Orders, and No Shortcuts are Taken.

Design.

At the start of your project an Interior Architecture team member will visit your property to access your space in its current condition, take accurate measurements, and identify prominent limitations in order to complete a revised floor plan that better suits your lifestyle and functionality needs.  Every inch in New York counts!  They will collaborate with our Interior Design team to create a renovated layout that maximizes your space to its fullest potential.

Identifying and understanding our client’s needs and point of view is fundamental in our design process. Our Interior Design team takes great care in getting to know you, gaining a deep understanding of your values, and how you will function and feel in the space. That’s whether you plan to live, work, or play there (or a combination of these). Whether you have strong ideas on what you like or not, our team is trained to meet your needs and educate you along the way. This way, your final result will be one that reflects you and your lifestyle. Our design team will help you curate your ideas, and organize them in a beautifully functional design that will bring you joy for years to come.

Most people think of interior design in terms of the last phase, the end result – you know, the mental image you’ve had for years of your dream home or the perfect magazine clipping on your vision board! Think of our team of designers as really stylish problem solvers. They are there to help guide you through the myriad of details throughout the process to bridge the gap from vision to reality. The process of design development really is about taking a space that doesn’t work on many levels and working out all the problems and challenges. Aside from the challenges of figuring out the best materials, finishes, and layout, there is also the consideration of budget, logistics, coordination and the overall cohesiveness and efficiency of not only the end result, but the entire process. There are a lot of moving parts and our team is there to guide you through the process step by step in an organized, efficient (and fun) manner. While the process can feel overwhelming at moments, it’s important to our designers that we focus on the fun in all of this. They want to help you find the joy and humor in the process along the way while offering support when things get stressful. They recognize the gravity of your decision to invest in your space.

Our Interior Design team will source finishes that best suit your design aesthetic, day-to-day needs, overall space, and budget.  Having a professional specify materials isn’t simply about getting beautiful products, it is also to ensure that the item specified fits your application needs. Every time a product is selected you need to review the spec sheets to verify the necessary load, space requirements, breathing room, and electrical requirements. Our professional team knows what to look for and how to determine if it’s the correct product for your application.  This includes sourcing the following materials.

Your customized Project Construction Document package is a Road Map that helps you get from the starting line to the finish line; faster, better, and with the results you expect. It also ensures that your contractor is not leaving anything out of their estimate which will cost you more after you start the project than it would if it was planned out and priced in advance.

Our construction document set is an instruction manual for your project. These plans enable everyone working on your project to be on the same page, and eliminates mistakes that cost you time and money. Having an instruction manual for your project ensures your project is accurately and efficiently completed.

Tile Cutting & Installation is an art. Whether you are doing a traditional subway tile backsplash or a 10 piece mosaic art installation, having experienced craftsmen who take pride in their work will ensure your design comes out as you intended it.

  • HVAC Plans
  • Fire Suppression Plans
  • Plumbing Plans

This part of the process is one of the most underestimated steps in your project. There are 100’s of items that need to be purchased for your project to reach completion, having them arrive too early or too late can result in damages and delays. Not understanding what you are purchasing results in incorrect purchases, that cost you time and money.

Having a dedicated purchasing manager saves you TIME > MONEY > HEADACHES. You can guarantee that items will come damaged, missing parts and pieces. Having someone deal with this part of the process will save you time ordering, scheduling deliveries, dealing with returns and exchanges and will keep your project moving.

Our Project Managers ensure your design does not get lost during the construction phase. Many times contractors and other tradesmen will take shortcuts or make decisions based on site conditions that impact the final result. If design changes are necessary, the project manager identifies the best possible solutions to achieve the final results you expect.

Our team keeps your project on time and you’ll know that someone is present making sure things go the way they should and the right decisions are being made in your favor.

The DOB requires a licensed expeditor to fill out permit paperwork and submit it anytime you need a permit. This process can be lengthy and extremely expensive. Our long-standing relationships and high annual volume with expeditors means we receive accelerated service and special rates – prices we pass on to you.

Whether you know what permit you need or you need help figuring it out, SmartDesign will get it done. We will provide you with the information you need to make educated decisions and we take care of the rest after that.

  • Fire Suppression Plans
  • Construction Permit – OT
  • Plumbing Permits – LAA (Limited Alteration Application)
  • PW2 Permit
  • Electrical Permit – EP
  • Mechanical Permit – MP

You might not know this as a vast majority of clients and inexperienced contractors who engage in a buildout don’t realize (until the very end of a project) that there are special inspections that the DOB requires when certain permits are pulled. These inspections could be pricey and cause you delays. We have this planned out from the very beginning to avoid delays and get you the best rates.

Just when you think you’re home free. There are several inspections that are required by your building, management company, and the DOB. We schedule the inspections from all the different trades (electrical, plumbing, construction, architect) and provide the final sign-offs required.
