We translate your specific needs into a service package designed for you, and we guide you through the process so you don’t have to guess what ‘programming’ means. We recognize that each design project is a unique challenge, so we provide a solution specific to each project.

How Can Blue Graphite Help On Your Project?

Lease Negotiations:

Are you a tenant or building owner? Looking for space or trying to negotiate a lease? We develop quick plans to help secure the right type and amount of space for your needs.

Programming (new location):

Before we put pencil to paper, we need to understand your work culture and philosophies. After we learn about your business, we work out the space layouts, budgets, and timelines.

Programming (renovation or expansion) :

Before we put pencil to paper, we need to understand your work culture and philosophies. After we learn about your business, we work out the space layouts, budgets, and schedules.

If you know what you have isn’t working, but don’t know what you need, we ask questions and analyze information about your business to determine a
solution that is specific to your needs.

Concept Development:

We create floor plans and sketches, and select materials and colours for the space that reflect the company brand, culture, and values. We review products for sustainability and implement green measures when feasible.

Budget Pricing:

We work with local contractors to confirm the construction budget before moving any further.

Contract Documents:

You have now made 80% of your decisions. This is when we create the blueprints and specifications that will allow you to obtain all the necessary permits and enable a contractor to price and build your project.

Tender Administration:

Based on the required move-in date, we can suggest the optimal construction methodology. We assist in selecting a contractor and obtaining pricing.

Contract Administration:

We are frequently on-site answering questions, working with you and the Contractor to troubleshoot and get the space built.

Furniture, Fixturing and Equipment:

This encompasses all of the non-construction elements that go into a space. We can help with reuse of existing furniture and purchasing of new furniture, draperies, kitchen equipment, specialty lighting, artwork, and interior plantings (just to name a few).

Move Coordination:

Uneasy about your move? We can help facilitate the discussions between you and your employees to make the change exciting instead of daunting. We can guide you through purging, prioritizing, and tagging items that will move. We can help secure a mover and coordinate the move for you.
