INTERIOR PROJECT MANAGEMENT
We, at Elcon Infrastructure, one of Chennai’s top interior decorators, value our customers and give them the best service in terms of design and quality. For every project, we allocate a manager who oversees the interior project professionally. From the drawing board to commissioning, he is your friend, guide, philosopher and project executor. The project begins with Interior Project Evaluation. When you leave a job to professionals like Elcon Infrastructure, top interior decorators in Chennai, you need not run after small time contractors and laborers and end up with shoddily done jobs. We will do it for you from drawing board to giving you the keys.
We do not roll out a single template across all interior projects. We survey your place, we speak to you, we speak to your staff and workforce, we understand different age groups and tastes and we customize design plans. It is different strokes for different folks. When we place a design before, a lot of work would have gone into it. You will see that we have taken into account the location of your office, the type of business you are in, your IT infrastructure, your power supply needs besides other utilities. Our artists and computer designers will show you how exactly your new office will look and feel not just at first sight but also how you would feel it once you start using it over a period of time. You will realize that your office or workplace has been uniquely tailored to your needs.
INTERIOR PROJECT EVALUATION
Our managers and engineers visit your site, discuss with you and determine the nature and dimension of the work to be carried out. Once these deliberations are done with, they evaluate the project in terms of work, design, material, cost and execution. They share the evaluation with you before preparing Interior Estimation. Before we fit out anything, we send our project manager to carry out an appraisal and hold discussion with you to understand your business, your needs, your tastes and the resources you can allocate. Our managers will also discuss with you whether the change you are looking for is needed or whether the existing fit out, if you already have an office or workplace, will do.
Our corporate psychologist, who will visit your place to understand your business, your staff and workforce, your corporate philosophy and culture, will work in tandem with our designers and engineers before we launch a fit out. Our engineers will study the available space, ensure that it is optimally used, and see that no wastage happens such as an unoccupied corner or a useless corridor. Once the work starts, we ensure that your telephone and computer-internet network are not disturbed and business will go on normally. Your business continuity is at the top of our priority list.
INTERIOR ESTIMATION PREPARATION
Considering the many aspects of interior decoration and refurbishing, our engineers and managers work out a realistic cost estimation taking into account the duration of work and price of materials on the market. However, once an estimate is approved by the client, we do not hike the price no matter how the market for material has changed. We always ensure that we work on win-win equation and do not compromise on quality and do not place our reputation at risk. In Chennai interior decorating market we are on the top 3 people and we aim at the No 1 spot.
Once the need is analyzed and the space inspected, our project manager will give you a cost estimate. This estimate will be transparent with no hidden costs and once the estimate is given, the project will be executed within the estimate. Our prices do not creep up.
INTERIOR DRAWING PREPARATION
Following the estimation and consequent approval by the client, the managers take the project to the next level, the preparation of interior drawing.
Right from the beginning and during the fit out stages, our engineers and draftspersons with the help of state-of-the-art software will provide you a graphic and detailed visualization of how your project will look and feel. You will not only be able to visualize but also feel that your expectations have been redefined for better quality and output.
How good is your office furniture? Is it eco-friendly and ergonomically designed? Does it merge with ambient light and color? Is it in keeping with your style and taste? Elcon Infrastructure will take care of it and ensure that your office or workplace makes the first impression not just the best but also a lasting one.
Interior Place, Position, Room Planning
Today space is at a premium. Therefore a lot care goes into studying the place available, the position and place of people and material and room planning. An ideal situation is arrived upon before executing the interior 2D drawing.
Our staff and technicians are trained to give the best service. Beyond fit out and square footage, we make sure that your power and other utilities are not disturbed while the project is on. We also see that the existing air-cons and other installations blend with the new fit out.
Beauty without utility is waste. Utility without beauty is drab. Beauty and utility without newness is trite. When we design, it is something new, something useful and something that is convenient and comfortable. In addition, we do not forget that nature around is an organic part of our work and business
INTERIOR 2D DRAWING SUBMISSION
Our engineers and draftsmen prepare the first cut of 2D drawing or the floor plan based on the inputs given to them derived from the earlier five levels of project execution. It is the base from which work kicks off. Among the top 10 interior decorators we are known for our design and drawing.
2D drawings are good but in order to get the client the real look and feel of the new design, we need to take the drawing to the next level: interior 3D drawing.
INTERIOR 3D DRAWING SUBMISSION
The 3D drawing enables the client to see and feel how exactly the plan and the design will look once the project is completed. Using sophisticated software tools, our engineers create 3D drawing and take you on a virtual tour of your new office;
you can feel everything—the floor, the colour, the ambience and the dimension of space.
INTERIOR NEW OR MIGRATED FURNITURE PLACEMENT MANAGEMENT

How we have used space to fit in your office, the color schemes of your corporate entity, the kind of staff that will now work in the new space, the kind of visitors you will entertain, the kind of acoustics you will need for a conference or video sessions—all these will be shared with you. We will take you into our 3D visualization on a virtual tour of your new office.
