The People Who Build Your New Kitchen
First up, meet your designer. You’re going to get to know your designer pretty well. In just a few hours, your designer will create a vision for your new kitchen based on your needs, your lifestyle and your family. They will guide you to the materials and layouts you need to fit inside your budget and your space. They are so up on recent trends that they know the trends before they’re trendy. When you’re done working with them, you’ll have a kitchen design perfect for your lifestyle, family and budget. It’s a beautiful thing.
The Project Manager
]You’ve heard nightmares about unfinished kitchens left sitting, while contractors drag their feet and families eat dry cereal, with no end in sight. Your project manager makes sure that doesn’t happen. Like a never-ending Facebook status update, the project manager will give you all the news on how your kitchen development is going. The project manager updates you with developments, and communicates between you and Blue Tea, and between Blue Tea and the factory to keep your kitchen running to schedule. The project manager also coordinates the Blue Tea CAD team, organises site checks, and overlooks the trades team.
The Computer Aided Design (CAD) team drafts all the details you discussed with your designer, and gets everything ready for manufacturing your new kitchen. These designs become a visual aid and contain relevant information for the factory. The CAD team hands off a copy of the plan to the site checker.
Enter the site checker. His job, incredible as it seems, is to check. He measures, reviews, and checks all the specifications you and your designer agreed upon (specific cabinets, colour selections, materials and finishes), to make sure nothing goes wrong. You need to be there for this, so you can give your final approval. The site checker is also a licensed builder. He coordinates your kitchen trades including installation, removal, plumbing, electrical, rendering, etc. If you have any trades-related questions, he’s the one to ask.
