FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Question: What is drafting?
Answer: Drafting is a process of using computer-aided design (CAD) to draw an accurate technical representation of the building that will be constructed. In earlier days, pen and paper were used to create these drawings. At North Coast Design, we use both 2D and 3D software to create detailed sets of drawings that communicate both form and function, which are then used for construction, and to achieve council approvals. The act of drafting in Mandurah is incredibly precise, and a blueprint for the construction is created. Drawings of the building also include multiple elevations and the floor plan, as well as detailed views containing information about individual components.
Question: Who is a draftsman?
Answer: A draftsman in Mandurah is a skilled person who creates technical blueprints of a building using CAD software. There are many ways to make a technical drawing, including by hand or by using a program, such as AutoCAD or Archicad. Different applications of drafting, from architecture to engineering will have different draftsman requirements. Although in Western Australia there are no legal requirements for draftsman to be qualified, all of the draftsman at North Coast Design have their Diplomas. At North Coast Design, we are not only draftsman, but designers as well. We consider your wants and needs, as well as other factors like your budget when designing your project. We then complete the technical aspects required of a draftsman including, plans of the floors, elevations, sections, details, site plan, room layout, plans for the electrical system, and more.
Question: What is the turnaround time?
Answer: The turnaround time for our drafting services in Mandurah changes based on the complexity of the project we undertake and project schedule requirements. For some projects, the drafting can be done overnight, while other projects may take weeks or even months. There are many stages to a design / drafting project that must be considered. Within the architectural drafting and design stages there is concept design, preliminary /planning approvals and construction documentation. Then you have structural documentation and certification, along with other consultants that may be required for your project (Energy Assessment and BAL Assessments for example).
Question: How much do you charge for drafting?
Answer: The cost of drafting services depends on the size and complexity of the project which is why we quote every project individually. We have jobs starting from $350, ranging up to $50,000+. The average cost for a residential project is around $3000 – $6000. This can vary greatly though dependent on client and job specific requirements, design work etc. You then also have consultants to consider on top of this that are required for council approval. The hourly rate for a draftsman with experience can range from $80 to $165. The price also varies depending on the number of revisions required and how quickly you need the drawings. For complex commercial drafting in Mandurah, the cost will be higher compared to a simple residential project. To get an accurate quote, please contact us with your project details.
Question: I am looking to renovate but don’t have my existing house drawings, what do I do?
Answer: Not to worry, as a leading Mandurah drafting company, there are a few different avenues that we can consider if you do not have the existing documentation. First and foremost, we recommend having an archive search completed at your local council. If this produces no results, we always have the ability to complete a full site measure and redraw of your building, ready to start the design and drafting process.
