Modern crematoria designs are often steered by the wish to create a building which is functional, elegant, timeless and in keeping with its surroundings. Underlying these requirements is also the need for flexibility, longevity and outstanding value for money in final delivery of the project.
Treske understand all of these requirements and work very closely with the architect and client to deliver a project both on time and on budget.
The design process applied by Treske on new projects is laid out in summary below.
Treske take the time to get to know the client and to understand the project in its entirety. There may be several layers of designers and key decision makers involved in each project from planners, quantity surveyors, architects, and building contractors, but the client’s brief must be the one which is listened to the closest. Treske will start with hand drawings and concept ideas and then work up to creating fully scaled computer generated images before each design can be signed off.
The interior scheme is always the making of any successful building project, whether it be a new build or a refurbishment of an existing building. Treske have a comprehensive collection of hard-wearing contract suitable fabrics which can be used to create stunning schemes to suit whichever brief we are given. We do not believe in limiting your choices and can source really light, contemporary (yet still practical) fabrics for your new crematorium or funeral chapel.
Choice of the correct timber finish can also be very important to the overall success of the interior scheme.
Treske will guide you through the various choices and put together mood boards to ensure the correct finish is selected for the furniture and seating. Budget is watched carefully at this point to make sure materials choices do not tip the scales too far in the wrong direction.
The culmination of the design process Is the creation of mood boards for the customer to approve. Visualizing the finished scheme is often tricky and creating mood boards showing the proposed material palette and finishes helps to demonstrate to the customer their brief has been comprehensively answered.
3-D Rendered CAD images of all furniture items can also be created to show that every piece will fit into the space and (most importantly) function correctly.
