We are a design and Project Management Company involved in both commercial and residential design here in Melbourne. We have worked together with Steven Berton on a number of projects where he has been involved in the interior design documentation, fixtures and finishes selections. Steven is highly professional in his approach and execution of his responsibilities. With a meticulous eye for detail and design, Steven has proven himself a valuable member of the team. I would therefore have no hesitation in recommending Steven Berton to assist in the interior design for projects, and I would look forward to working with him on future projects.
It is with great pleasure that I recommend Steve Berton. I have known him personally for ten years and during the last few years we have worked with him as a consultanting Interior Designer on various residential projects. Steve has always displayed a high degree of integrity and responsibility. In addition to his excellent organisational ability, he has proven his leadership skills by managing a number of projects for us with several running concurrently. I have been consistently impressed by both Steve’s attitude towards his work and his willingness to accept challenging tasks in a pro-active manner. His interpersonal and communication skills have allowed him to develop productive working relationships with both our clients and our staff. Steve also has the listening and design skills necessary to both extract information from our clients and also to produce design solutions consistent with client expectations and brief. This has proved invaluable during the preliminary stages of a project. Steve has outstanding design ability and (on our projects) his tasks included developing a design concept, detailed design and documentation, liaising with clients, coordinating with specialist consultants, tendering projects, construction attendance and managing the contractual side on most jobs. He is well organised, reliable and is highly skilled with CAD. He is also a dependable ‘team player’ with a strong belief in client/consultant liaison and communication. His open-minded approach provides opportunities to assess and examine creative alternatives to interior design which (as an architect) I have found to be both refreshing and challenging. Steve provides a positive contribution to the Interior Design and Building industry and I am happy to give him my wholehearted endorsement
Steven’s insight and expertise in design has been a critical factor in the success of my developments. Steven is a skilled designer in aspects of materials, colours and finishes, and also in his drafting of meticulous working drawing documents ensuring no detail is missed. His expertise extends to function beyond form – ensuring designs are not just beautiful and balanced, but result in truly liveable homes. His master of lighting, colours, materials, flow and space comes not from theory, but a detail understanding of construction and scale derived from experience. I have undertaken numerous developments, and worked with different consults. Steven is consistently the first consultant I appoint, and I engage him on a full service basis to ensure my interests and his vision are represented in the final product. His manner, service ethic, personal commitment and relationship approach to business make him a pleasure to work with. I don’t just recommend Steven, I advocate for him without hesitation.
