TESTIMONIALS

Private Residence - New Construction

Private Residence - New Construction

"White River Design services worked with Stacy Ralston from Fort Smith, Arkansas to refine the design of the home of her dreams using White River Mon Reale mouldings and other products. Stacy loved working with the White River Design team and felt the quality of the products was top notch."

This client had collected a treasure trove of sophisticated interior photos from historic to new interpretation of classic interiors. Features include columns, arched openings, high ceilings, ornate millwork and beamed ceilings throughout. The family room is fully panelled and richly stained with a built-in pub style bar. This home is still the go-to when friends gather as it exudes warmth, wonderful details, and allows you to be anyplace in the world..enjoying a warm and wonderful occasion [ and a cold beer].

This is a Design Services Project which includes design concept, elevations, sections, dimensioned drawings, take-off, quote and jobsite drawings for installation.

The Baccarat Hotel in NYC

The Baccarat Hotel in NYC

Sylvain Giguere of Beaubois Architectural Woodwork (Québec, Canada), New York City, New York’ “We needed White River to take hand drawn renderings and turn them into detailed hand carvings. This required master carvers and a quick turnaround. Hundreds of pieces were created in only a few months. The final results met our deadlines and were absolutely beautiful. I can tell you that White River is simply GREAT to work with. I will recommend you anytime to anyone! Thanks.” –Sylvain Giguere

The Baccarat Hotel in NYC hired our Design Services to create stunning, elegant, large scale White Oak carvings from hand rendered drawings. Hundreds of pieces were needed throughout this hotel, each designed with intricate details, and within only a few months. The final results met their deadlines and were absolutely beautiful as they set the tone for each of the rooms.

Executive Office

Executive Office

"Nobu Archi Design of Japan forwarded our marketing department photography of a completed elegant executive office in an impressive hospital. White River’s Design Services worked with Nobu with the expectation of a rich layered classical office, but with a contemporary feel in the ornament." ​

Design Services worked to refine Nobu’s vision by producing finished drawings, final elevations and construction drawings. We take pride in our ability to take your ideas and transform them into the interior of your dreams.

How the Program Works — What to Expect — The Cost Involved

Level 1: Moulding Specification

White River will give product suggestions via phone or email. These suggestions may be accompanied by hand sketches or simple CAD drawings. This may involve selecting crown, base, casing, chairrail, panel moulding, etc. It usually involves an hour of design time or less. There is usually no charge for Level 1 Design Services.

1. Product advice via phone and email
2. Simple sketches or CAD provided
3. Developing something new or interpretation from a photo or drawing
4. For crown, casing baseboard applications generally

Level 2: Standard Design Assistance

White River will work with you to develop your project. It may be an elevation, cabinetry, a single room, or an entire building. All work at this stage is billed at an hourly rate of $75. Design time is estimated based on project scope and must be pre-paid. Standard Design Assistance involves several stages:

A. Preliminary Design

We will produce initial design ideas, working to present a visual picture of our millwork and moulding concepts. This may include sketches over photos, rough elevations, and other CAD drawings as needed.

B. Design Refinement

Once you are satisfied with the initial concepts, we will begin to create the technical CAD drawings. Standard technical drawings include dimensioned elevations, reflected ceiling plans, and detailed sections.

C. Takeoffs and Pricing

When the design is completed, we can provide a material takeoff and price estimate for all White River millwork and carvings within the project.

Level 3: On-Site Consultation

If desired, one of our Designers can visit your project for an On-Site Consultation. Our Designer will review existing conditions, take photos and measurements, and discuss initial concepts and ideas with you. This meeting can take 1/2 to 2 days, depending on the scope of the job and services needed. All site visit time is billed at $75/hour plus expenses, including airfare, travel time, lodging, and meals.

The average investment for On-Site Consultation is $2,000 to $3,000. After the initial meeting, Level 3 design will follow similar steps to Level 2 (Preliminary Design, Design Refinement, Takeoffs and Pricing).

1. Jobsite consultation by our Design Professionals
2. Design Services to develop your project
3. Detailed dimensioned drawings include elevations, sections, reflected ceiling plans, and take-offs with estimated costs.
4. Design time is estimated, based on scope of project and prepaid.

We’d love to hear from you about your project.
