From an operational perspective during 2016 & 2017, Bishop Design LLC has succeeded previous years not only due to the high number project turnover or projects completed, but the high net value of these projects, allowing us to continue expansion and further develop our brand. Overall client satisfaction & retention through to the increasing number of new clients across all design sectors has helped contribute to rising gross profit values of an estimated AED 20 million per annum; an estimated 20% annual growth from 2016 to 2017 and projected growth values of 30% for 2018 with the introduction of Rogue by Bishop Design. We contribute these factors to a number of key elements; full in-house design production from A-Z overseen personally by Paul Bishop and the management team which allow us to fully control our design standards and quality control but further into planning and client commitment timeframes whereby we are typically able to turnover a project in 6-8 weeks from concept to detailed design & specification/ tender package, with a capability of handling 4-6 projects per month continuously. It’s our commitment format to clients that far surpasses many of our competitors. Exceptional expertise and strong relationship values built on trust and confidence, Bishop Design LLC has also welcomed a vast number of new Clients over differing demographics including UAE, Oman, France, The United Kingdom and Miami, and with the further expansion into the hotel industry, not only working on smaller boutique Hotels for Clients including Roya who are looking to incorporate our F&B approach into new hotel environments and no longer conforming to the standard but designing for the needs of the next generation, Bishop Design are designing for international brands such as Rotana, Hilton Hotel and The Intercontinental Hotel which has seen great business performance benefits.
Since January 2016, Bishop Design LLC has been the continued innovative driving force behind a multitude of successful projects. The past two years (2016/2017) has seen a diverse, unique yet ultimately successful collection of signature projects by Bishop Design LLC; notable highlights being 2017 three-time award winner Bazxar -triumphant at both the Index Awards and International Hotel & Property awards hosted by leading industry magazine Design et al, 2017 AHEAD MEA award winner Cubano Lito, Little Black Door, Roberto’s, newly opened Scalini’s Italian Restaurant, Larte, Toro + KO and the highly anticipated Torno Subito by Massimo Bottura, due to open its doors this March. On the drawing board for 2018/19 are high profile projects including Edern in Paris by Jean-Edern, in addition to our hotel projects that have also been given recognition and accreditation, most notably Studio City Hotel, Dubai and Rotana Urban Resort, Muscat – The common thread between each and every project undertaken by Bishop Design LLC, wether it be F&B, Hospitality, Hotel or Commercial projects in general is our ability to adapt our client’s requirements in our own unique design style, approach and ideology which has been the natural crossover of bold, expressive and somewhat controversial design between all sectors that best demonstrate who we are as a company, not the individual project but what we are able to produce as a company delivering forward thinking design. With projects ranging from five-star hotels and fine-dining venues, to quick service restaurants and dedicated nightclubs, the diversity of our team’s capabilities is endless, and these unique skills that can be applied to any and every project are what sets us apart from others in the industry, which may only specialize in fractions of interior design. The studio looks forward to the upcoming 12 months with excitement and anticipation.
