OUR CORE VALUES
What we do
We change how you work and play to improve well-being.
If your space is not working for you, if you want to attract more clients, create a brand, have happier healthier staff which you can retain and be more productive then we can help you!
We specialise in workplace and hospitality, providing consultancy and design services including measured surveys, space design, concept design, construction drawings and specification and procurement of finishes, furniture and fittings.
But above all we guide you through every step of our process which can be taken at your pace and we reduce your risk because we know change is difficult and the timing has to be right, we call this THE BASECAMP WAY.
A successful project needs a detailed brief to establish exactly what you want from your design and ensures you get the best solution. We create the design brief and feasibility study through consultation and a questionnaire which identifies areas in which the productivity, sustainability and well-being can be increased.
Through a site survey we provide accurate existing plans and identify capabilities of the site for development. A full audit of furniture and fittings can be provided alongside the existing drawings. If your existing space is not suitable we can design extensions or help you find the correct property.
Based on your brief and survey we will create a concept board and 2D layouts to identify key elements of the design. We believe there is only one correct solution based on your requirements so based on your feedback this will then be translated into the final 3D visuals so you can fully understand the design.
Costings & Tendering
The brief will clearly identify your budget which we will design to. We provide full cost estimates prior to tendering to ensure projects remain in budget. We manage the full tendering process to ensure you get the best contractor to deliver your requirements. We manage the project through construction until completion and snagging.
We provide full drawing packages required for construction and to comply with building regulations. You can choose from two delivery methods: Traditional - full design prior to tender, or Design & Build - we work with the contractor to provide a fast track '' solution.
We ensure the quality is maintained using either method.
We provide full procurement of furniture and accessories. We work closely with many suppliers and other professionals so we can provide all the services you require for a turnkey solution.
why we do it
Because we care
We want our clients and their staff the be happy, healthy and successful. The natural and built environment has an enormous effect on people so as designers it is our duty to design for peoples well-being.
The smallest details can make a real impact when it comes to designing a space, but only a true professional knows how to bring all the elements together to create a seamless design. That’s where Basecamp Interiors comes in and uses their expertise to creating interiors that not only impress but increase the well-being of the users.
Basecamp Interiors opened for business in 2019 and are dedicated to helping each client make decisions about the work environment which benefits everyone. The company was founded by Alicia Bunn, a highly experienced Interior designer with a background in Architecture and a creative passion to improve peoples well-being through Interior design and increasing business growth.
WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO?
Basecamp Interiors are proud to have worked on over 20 office redesign, from 100m² to 2500 m² over the past year as well as a number of hospitality and residential projects.
Basecamp interiors acts as design consultant for Installation and Refurbishment Solutions (IRS), a specialist commercial interiors and relocation company who are committed to providing an individual solution for your office move or refurbishment, giving you the peace of mind that your project is in the hands of the experts.
We are excited to be working with Nott Office to provide Space Planning for their office projects. Thanks goes to Jonathan Nott, Director for the lovely testimonial below:
Alicia is a fantastic designer, with a vast knowledge of the industry and creative flair, I would have no reservations in recommending Basecamp Interiors to any client in the future.
Interior design & Furniture Procurement
This office was completely re-imagined to create a bright and colourful space which accommodated not only more staff but provided a meeting room which opened onto a breakout/lounge area allowing flexible use, providing 2 very different spaces or one large social/meeting space to accommodate all the staff.

Produce a Design Brief & Feasibility Study
Basecamp Interiors works with the Client and their staff to create a Brief which identifies areas in which the productivity, sustainability and well-being can be increased and solutions are proposed. This is reviewed throughout the design process to ensure we are on track and to get the best solution.
We will analyse your existing office or proposed offices to see if your needs can be met now and in the future.
A measured survey will check what has been built as existing drawings may not be correct or cover everything required to create a new design. We also survey the furniture and fittings to allow a considered proposed design.
Some clients know what they want and others have a rough idea, our job as designers is to tell a story about you if it is residential or your brand if it is a commercial project.
For commercial projects it is one of the biggest marketing tools you have to influence clients and staff combined with all the functional aspects to operate successfully. That is why we take a very detailed brief and develop a concept design that will work on all levels for sucess.
For many clients the first question they ask is 'How much will it cost?' As experts we design to a budget you set and help you choose that budget based on your requirements. By choosing this route compared to using a design and build company you can ensure you get the design you really want, quality is maintained and any cost savings are passed onto you.
The design and build method boasts that it is faster than the traditional method, this is often true but there are ways we can speed up the traditional method and this is why we design to a budget and provide budget costings prior to tender as well as value engineering. We also have strong relationships to contractors so the tendering process is speeded up.
The final construction cost will often depend on how long the project takes until it gets to construction. As a client the best way to speed up the process is to make quick decisions so the project can be sent to tendering as soon as possible.
Note: costs fluctuate and the Covid pandemic is a prime example which has seen some raw material costs increasing by up to 30%.
As they say 'The devil is in the detail', by appointing us we make sure that the drawings are comprehensive and items are fully specified. This ensures that you do not run into any foreseeable problems and that the contractor does not make snap decisions onsite which could lead to compromised design or functionality. This helps in keeping costs on track and prevents delays to construction.
Building regulation approval is required for most building works and is the minimum standards for design, construction and alterations. All our work is compliant and we often exceed the standards to future proof designs.
By appointing us to oversee your construction project you have peace of mind that our design and specification is carried out.
We offer a final project completion assessment as part of the project management or as a separate service on our projects or others. Our expert eye will pick up any items not up to standard or specification and oversee the rectification.
