Collaborative Design For Residential Projects
Home design is a collaborative process between building designer and owner. I work with you to provide a home to suit the style and construction method that you as the owner require. This is why most of the homes I design are quite different to each other and are not designed to conform with a uniform style.
High Quality Drafting Service
No home design is worth anything unless it is articulated in an accurate and detailed set of construction drawings. I place a great deal of importance in the quality of the construction drawings I produce - something that builders appreciate.
I use industry leading 3D Architectural software (Archicad) to 'build' a detailed and structurally accurate digital model of the proposed building. This allows for comprehensive assessment, avoidance of structural clashes and increased accuracy and quality of documentation. It is also an invaluable tool for seeing how the final project will look and perform.
I can also provide a 3D 'rendered' image service for projects that I have designed and drafted or for your own plans.
Available as standard on all projects is a BIMx file which is a 3D 'walk-through' building model that can be emailed and viewed on your own home computer or mobile device. Being able to see the full extent of your building inside and out at an early stage in a digital environment is fantastic aid in design decision making. I can even apply most selected colours and finishes for added realism.
Diverse Construction Methods
I have designed homes to suit a wide range of construction types so if what you want is something a little different I can accommodate. I can also design to suit your environmentally sustainable or energy efficient requirements.
I can also provide a full design and drafting service for builders. I can complete your custom designs as required as well as develop and maintain a range of standard designs to suit your requirements.
