The Design Process

Oliver Steer offers a carefully structured approach for each project, having created the following key stages.

We believe it is vital to the success of all our projects to deliver every stage with the utmost professionalism. We operate a completely transparent policy and the focus of our exceptionally talented team is always to produce the highest standard of design, oversee the installation and to manage contracts and budgets to satisfy the most discerning of clients.
