Post-Design Services typically begin immediately following completion of Construction Documents, although work on some of the services included, such as interpretive exhibit copy writing and image research and acquisition may actually be initiated earlier. During the Post-Design Services phase Main Street Design provides on-going administration, coordination and supervision of the production, fabrication, and installation of project components.
We work closely with the client’s project staff, as well as with representatives of the project’s architects and the general contractor for the building, to coordinate the completion and installation of exhibit components in an efficient and timely manner. As the designated point of contact between the exhibit fabricator and other members of the total project team, we ensure that production and fabrication remains on budget and on schedule, and that the completed project, after installation, meets or exceeds the client’s and designer’s expectations.
Post-Design Services are typically contracted on an a la carte basis, depending on each client’s specific needs and capabilities. Services offered during this phase include bid and negotiation with potential contractors and fabricators; image and artifact research and acquisition; coordination and art direction of illustrations and commissioned artworks; interpretive copy writing and editing; preparation of digital production files (“camera ready artwork”) for exhibition graphics and signage components; and coordination and supervision of project component fabrication and installation.
