Our Process

At MIL Design we serve as both the designer and the contractor 2in1 for design and built projects, ensuring strong collaboration across all stages of the design and build. The aim is to achieve the right aesthetics, functions, ‘vibes’ of the place and even down to the finer details such as fengshui requirements.

Through a participatory and collaborative relationship with the Client we work to understand expectations work towards achieving the final dream project.

Schedule a Chat

A 1-hour design feasibility consultation with our founders Mil or Edward. This can be done through VC online or in person at our office.

Let's Get Started

Signing of Design Contract to appoint us. Once appointed we will kick off with a 2-hour on-boarding design consultation meeting to finalize the client’s lifestyle concepts, preferred moods or styles, and any detailed requirements.

This is when we will need to fully understand the client’s lifestyle requirements from their dreams, needs, personal collections, hobbies, to fengshui requirements of each of their family member.

Design Meetings

On-going design meetings and design dialogues continue with the client where we will work on finalizing the concept, layout drawings and 3D renders for signoff

This is referred as Design Stage which normally takes 5 weeks

Specs & Cost Review
