Edmonton Drafting Services for Design Professionals
Architectural Technologists naturally work well with practicing professionals.
Edmonton, the capital of Alberta, is a thriving city in the heart of the wilderness. Edmonton provides a cost-competitive growth environment with low property taxes, a highly experienced construction industry, and outstanding urban services. We understand your goals as we’ve been mentored by local specialists, and we’ve kept our active status with regulatory agencies, always growing our expertise in the building sciences.
Working as a bridge between concept and occupancy, we free up a lot of your time while assisting you in delivering a final, polished project which you can be proud of.
We frequently operate behind the scenes to provide the expert Edmonton architectural drafting services you require, or we may assist by working with other professionals on the project. Depending on your preference, your client or consultant might know we are a part of your team or we can simply operate behind the scenes.
3D Software & Processes
We utilise Vectorworks for all 3D projects, which is a complete architectural drafting and design program built specifically for Architects. The model generates floor plans, elevations, sections, and roof plans, so you can rest assured that the different sheets are nicely coordinated.
Vectorworks is compatible with Autodesk and exports.dwg files, allowing project team members that use Autodesk to collaborate.
Because it’s a 3D model, renderings and other vignettes may be created for design exploration. This helps to avoid mistakes during construction, saving time and money.
Working as Part of Your Team
We take your concept sketches, hand drawn, computers files or preliminary plans and turn them into fully articulated 3D design drawings, complete with renderings or animations.
This enables you to focus on design and not computer data input.
Exploring fenestration, textures, and massing is easily accomplished, allowing for design changes to be explored at various levels of detail quickly and accurately. We will work within your CAD standards and deliver the final model to you for continued coordination or BIM integration.
Building Permit Drawings
Whether it’s concept drawings for first reading with council or further detailed drawings for advisory design panel or public hearing, our architectural drafting and design experts will be there to help get your project through to the fourth reading and council’s approval.
We have experience working with:
- Geotechnical engineers,
- Environmental consultants,
- Wildfire assessors,
- Traffic engineers,
- Civil engineers,
- Landscape Architects,
- and other various consultants.
Building Permit Drawings
Coordinating with the consultants on a project is our specialty.
Whether it’s continuing with a design from a DP or rezoning application or starting a project that is currently only a concept, we work fluently within part 9 and part 3 of the building code and local building and zoning bylaws.
We enjoy working closely with:
- Structural engineers,
- Building envelope,
- Mechanical engineers,
- Electrical engineers,
- and many others that may be involved with your project.
Whether chairing meetings or taking direction, we can be as engaged as much or as little as your project needs.
