The HVS Design reputation is built on performance in the hospitality market: hotels, luxury resorts, golf/country clubs, timeshare communities, and conference centers for new construction, renovation, and historic restoration. A majority of our client list consists of repeat commissions and referrals. Our Scope of Services includes design, interior space planning, FF&E specification, feasibility analysis, master planning, preparation of presentation visuals, computer drawings, budget analysis, custom product design, and design of graphics and signage.
The interior design process begins with a black-and-white business analysis: a comprehensive study and survey of the property’s target market, competitive set, and the owner’s real estate and financial goals. Our designs are then driven by aesthetic value, durability, functionality, budget, and schedule. The use of computer technology from the schematic design phase continues into the detailed development of the construction documentation phase. Finally, our procurement knowledge ensures comprehensive specifications for the project’s documentation, purchasing, and installation. The entire process results in interior design solutions that are marketable and financially sound for our clients.
