Once an enquiry is received we follow up in order to clarify exactly what information is needed. An appointment to meet and see the project location can often be extremely useful in understanding the background thinking to a commission. At this stage we frequently present to interested parties and PCCs how we work and use examples of past commissions as well as bringing appropriate furniture samples to show some of the options.
Treske take great care over the development of designs for special commissions and church interiors. We understand that the creation of the best work is usually the result of good working relationships between the different people and organizations involved - the church or client, architect, designers and makers, all of whom depend on good communication and mutual respect.
Within this design process Treske use both traditional and modern drawing techniques and technology but remain deeply committed to the time honored craft skills. Our workforce respond with flair and enthusiasm. Everyone at Treske is dedicated to success in this field, which is as much the result of attention to detail as it is to experience and inspiration.
The information gathered forms a brief, which once developed forms the basis for initial draft design work. Initial designs often go through a period of iteration to determine the best design approach before settling on a core design concept to develop. Once chosen the design is worked into drawings that can be presented for local approval before they are presented for DAC permissions. Comments from DACs are taken into account and any changes resubmitted.
With fitted work, site surveys are important – our furniture is made to order and to fit specific areas – so before manufacturing the head fitter will visit to make sure the work will fit and make any last changes necessary. All furniture is delivered and installed by Treske craftsmen to the highest standards. We take great pride in our work and know it will be enjoyed for many generations to come.
Once approved, the designs can then be made in the Treske workshops. Many customers visit the workshops while their pieces are being made and are welcome at any stage of the process. The Treske team will keep a customer informed at key points in the process – including the delivery date.
