The personnel of the Peter Adamson Architects PTY LTD Company know that the main function of a drafting person is to provide working technical drawings for craftsmen and contractors. Drafting persons are proficient at architectural drawings of buildings and details, including house and unit designs. Using CAD applications is the main job of a drafting person. May drafting individuals focus on the type of structure and the material used. A drafting person can generate the types of technical drawings needed by a custom cabinet maker, for example. For small or medium projects, where drawings are wanted that offer technical detail, but do not need a great deal of design or engineering, a drafting individual can deliver contractors with a flawless set of working instructions. Drafting people usually have completed formal training or coursework. However, licensing of these specialists is not required.
New home or building owners wanting a small project that only needs exact and specific drawings to be drawn up for a contractor, a drafting individual can produce house and unit design plans that are effective. The fee that a drafting person would charge for these small projects is usually small. Clients planning to refurbish their bathroom should either hire a drafting person to sketch out their ideas for their respective contractor or they can hire an Architectural Designer to help them define what they require. The procedure followed here is that the information can be given to the contractor as working drawings. However, the respective contractor has to be licensed but permits are not legally necessary. That being said, for this scenario a drafting person would be the best choice. If the client is at a conceptual stage and wants somebody to generate a rendering of their ideas, an architectural designer would be the best person to hire for the job. An Architectural Designer will then take the clients request and make a drawing that includes the client’s ideas, into an organised and interrelated design.
A designer is able to make recommendations about materials, finishes and colour. For any type of project that needs legal building permits and inspections, it is best to procure the advice of a registered and licensed Architect. Even though a number of agencies demand an Architects endorsement, not all agencies insist on this. People who hire an Architect automatically guarantee that their home or respective building will be constructed in line with the latest legally applicable codes resulting in the avoidance of many associated problems. The Peter Adamson Architects PTY LTD Company needs to point out that when people hire an Architect they will always be hiring a committed and motivated professional. Even though it costs more to hire an Architect, compared to the cost of hiring a Designer or Drafting Person, people are guaranteed that the final architectural house and unit designs will always be structurally and legally sound.
