Tuesday, October 18, 2005
Two Vancouver companies, SmartDesign Group and Lisa Bell & Associates, have been selected by Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft shipyard as the interior design companies for BC Ferries’ three new Super C-class vessels.

SmartDesign Group will develop the interior design standards for the Super C-class passenger accommodation areas, including the Coastal Café, Coastal Café Express, Passages Giftshop, coffee bar buffet restaurant, chief steward's office and the lounge seats.

Headquartered in Vancouver, SmartDesign Group specializes in designing for the transportation, hospitality, and sports and entertainment industries. The company is comprised of interior designers, architects, graphic designers, procurement specialists, project managers and marketing experts.

“As a local company, we know the importance of BC Ferries to the province. Our aim is to provide passengers and crew members with a memorable experience by capturing the essence of the West Coast in the design of the passenger areas onboard,” said Jon Sunderland, Partner, SmartDesign Group.

Lisa Bell & Associates, a Vancouver-based food service facilities consulting firm, has also been contracted by Flensburger to work on the Super C-class vessels. The firm will design the equipment layout for all food service areas, including the galley, Coastal Café, Coastal Café Express, coffee bar and buffet restaurant.

The detailed interior design phase for the three Super C-class vessels will continue until January 2006. Construction of the vessels will begin in September 2006 with delivery of the first vessel in December 2007, the second in early 2008 and the third in mid-2008.
