Our Approach

Chirp considers each and every client a partner. Our holistic design process – transparent, collaborative and empowering for clients – lies at the centre of this commitment. While each project is different, the chirp process can be broken down into the three phases below.

1. discover
  • Design Consultation
  • Project Startup
  • Needs Analysis + Programming
  • Schematic Design

Whether large or small, we strive to ensure that every CHIRP project is built on firm foundations. A deep understanding of the culture, markets, audiences and opportunities lies at the heart of effective and ground-breaking branding and design. During the Discover phase, we map out a solid strategic foundation with you, establishing project requirements, and putting together the project’s team of disciplines.

2. design
  • Design Development
  • Furniture Fixtures & Equipment
  • Construction Documentation
  • Permits + Construction Tender

Renowned for our creativity, we thrive on bringing fresh ideas to the table – ideas that can be built, ideas that give new focus to your company’s identity. From the start, design solutions are brainstormed in a group setting with an emphasis on value, details, materials and textures. From initial drawings to fielding construction tenders, the Design phase turns insights into big ideas.

3. execute
  • Construction Contract Admin
  • Project Completion
  • Continuing Relationship

Any truly successful project should go to lengths to empower everyone involved – from trades, to designers, to the client. Chirp works to ensure that everyone on the project feels they have a stake in crafting an excellent outcome. In this way, project implementation, review and ongoing maintenance of the space lead to building stronger relationships – this is the real value–add.

we do rescues

CHIRP is often employed for our experience with ‘rescues’. Put simply: when other design/build firms have not done their due diligence, we’ve been hired to get the project done right. What makes these projects trickier than many is:

  • The client’s patience has been tested, resulting in an acute need for responsibility.
  • The project may be partially completed, requiring an astute assessment of the work done to-date.
  • Portions of the client’s resources have now been exhausted, requiring a special sensitivity to their budget.

With a sterling record of delivering big ideas on-time and on-budget, CHIRP loves proving that we know how to listen, how to assess an existing project, and re-devise the path to completion.
