I have a client who engaged in my design services for her 2000s.f. law office five years ago in Toronto. Three years later, she sold her practice and moved to the US. It was wonderful to hear that she wanted my interior design services once more, after buying a 6000s.f. home in NJ in need of a huge overhaul.
Aside from an initial site visit and periodic meetings during construction, the majority of the work that I perform is done in my office, including the permit and construction drawings, and selecting furniture and finishes. Even the design presentations can be done remotely, thanks to programs like Zoom or GoToMeeting. While international projects operate slightly differently, in that I often require a local architect to manage permit drawings, I maintain the same level of quality and thoroughness as I do for local projects.
