Berthier understands that the best office design projects are approached with a designer-led management system. Our process allows for a consistent project vision from start to finish, holistic decision making, and an ongoing exchange with our clients, inviting them into a co-creative dialogue that keeps them informed and participating over the entire arc of the project schedule.
Ultimately, designer-led projects are delivered faster, at less cost, maximizing project efficiency, while ensuring the highest quality in design and materials.
2. Single point of responsibility
Berthier project leaders are assigned at the beginning and remain involved throughout the process as your single point of contact, taking responsibility for each stage, handling the glitches and sorting out any snags.
Our project leaders are design professionals with proven track records in corporate office design, project management and construction management. They are team players, who thrive in their multi-faceted roles and make office set-ups an experience so seamless for our clients that they wouldn’t consider working with anyone else.
3. Total transparency
Berthier’s pricing system provides real transparency by detailing all technical specifications upfront. This lets clients know, before contracting, the true cost of the project, the precise quality of the materials and it provides an accurate snapshot of the finished workspace.
Then, as the project develops, clients can request changes in total trust, as adding or reducing various items and specifications will make the price go up or down automatically.
Berthier is wholly accountable to complete projects within the agreed budget and within the agreed specifications.
4. Inspired choices
Because we take care of it all, we deliver excellent results at any budget.
Great design isn’t about how much you spend – it’s about how smart you spend. At Berthier we are experts at infusing any budget with a high degree of originality, ingenuity and impressive design.
When performance can be improved with higher specifications or significantly affected with lower specifications, we always quote an option for reference, allowing the client to make an informed choice. We can also provide quotes with a full range of optional specifications, allowing the client to set the budget as they see fit.
In Japan, maintaining strict adherence to deadlines is standard practice. Berthier goes one-step further, by delivering on time even when there is a need for acrobatic deadlines, unusual processes or complex phase controls.
Berthier works as one cohesive, multi-disciplinary team that communicates efficiently and overlaps tasks smoothly, often carrying out many parts of the process all at the same time.
Being one team, Berthier greatly optimizes project delivery.
We can provide clients the ability to order long lead-time items while the budget is still under review or the project is still in the design phase, because all items are broken down by cost, quantity and lead-time delivery.
We can complete portions of the work in advance, the early construction of a server room, for example.
We can plan and manage re-stacking procedures for part or full remodeling of an otherwise occupied office space without disrupting the day-to-day business.
We can perform minor maintenance or major modifications smoothly as we keep all data on hand and can provide everything to fulfill any need, all in one call.
