Our Process

Depending on the type of project the nature and number of stages may vary, but typically our drafting services in Sydney follow this process:


Setting Scope and Brief

This first stage involves a site visit and initial discussions on project requirements, to set the scope of the works. This may include site surveys, budget specifications and discussion of any known constraints. A final design brief is written up and confirmed to ensure plans are realistic from inception in terms of cost and scale.

Thorough implementation of this first stage paves the way for a smooth planning process.


Initial Planning Stage

Once the final brief is agreed, costing and feasibility studies commence. Any additional consultation required is undertaken, for example surveying, soil testing. Where necessary, possible alternatives are proposed for improvement or modification and to ensure client needs are fulfilled. This stage finalises the design options, providing initial sketch plans and simple 3D drawings for confirmation of end results.


Provision of Drawings

The final scheme design and building license drawings are drawn up, adhering fully to the design brief. Any further consultants required are brought in, for example engineering, energy efficiency. All cost implications are analysed before submission is made for planning approval and the approval process is monitored and overseen.

The result of this stage is approved drawings, ready for construction to commence.


Post Planning Stage

This stage ensures the proper discharge of planning conditions and allows for any additional design work. On site consulting may be required for revisions, design modifications or the provision of additional services. If the consented design requires alteration, this must be fully documented.

This final stage follows through to project completion, with the benefit of ensuring all drawings remain fully up to date and in order.
