At FJI, we believe design is deeper than a beautiful interior. 

It is the experience and the story behind the aesthetic of your space. It is the community we help you build through strategic design solutions that will keep your guests coming back for more.

The question we get asked most often is: how do you get there? We've fine-tuned our design process to ensure the best outcome for you and your business. Although from time to time, we adjust this process to fit your specific needs, we generally stick to a series of phases. These five phases includes concept evolution, design development, construction documents, construction administration, and procurement. To dive a little deeper into understanding our process download The FJI Design Process Book.
