Director’s Message:

As a very experienced draftsman I get to see a lot of plans from competitors, some very good but the majority not so good.
Some builders have come to realise this is quite a problem with in their business & still do not recognised that to provide quality drawings requires a quality professional with experience.
The fees for quantity work & service far out weights the price to fix issues & reputations.

I have trained in retail service industry, manufacturing & design of proprietary built components (trusses, floor system) drafting for volume builders & at times more complicated issues from the general public. A quality draftsman needs to have experience in a wide range of fields.
The most important issues from the design & construction point of view is the siting & associated earth works & floor levels as this will decide whether you have made money or good money on the job.

As a quality design & drafting service we will not compete to the lowest price.
We will provide a superior, accurate set of plans to save you a lot more than just a few dollars.
