Start With an Assessment

Successful growth starts with an assessment.

The best way to begin any project is to find out exactly where you stand. A thorough evaluation of your current standards, environments, and programs will help you set your goals and achieve your objectives more effectively and efficiently. Yet, surprisingly, many organizations jump right in without taking an objective view of their current situation. They design new features without an overarching vision of customer experience, without figuring out how to incorporate the old with the new for a seamless, cohesive and fully branded environment.

What does such an evaluation encompass?

At Aesthetics, we start with an in-depth discussion with your organization’s leadership and management team to assess objectives and begin to evaluate how to reach those goals. We then conduct a thorough examination of your existing environment in terms of context, materials, brand image, and best practices. We review our findings with your leadership team and finalize a development plan, which will help guide your current and future design decisions, keeping your team focused on the overall vision.

What types of assessments do you create?

Our team is thoroughly experienced in evaluating health and wellness environments, including art programs, wayfinding, donor recognition, and interior design. We have completed assessment reports for leading healthcare organizations around the country, including most recently Valley Children’s Healthcare, Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital, and MedStar Montgomery Medical Center.

How much does an assessment cost?

Donor recognition assessments can begin as low as $5,000, depending on your size and your needs. Wayfinding, branded environments, and interior design assessments are typically much more detailed and comprehensive, so they range between $20,000 and $80,000. For more information about pricing, contact us at design@aesthetics.net.

How soon can I complete an assessment?

Depending on our team’s availability, an assessment can be arranged within a couple of weeks. The process of evaluation and report of findings can take between three and eight weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the environment.
