Our Process

We Provide you Quality, Expertise, & Professionalism

All  of our drafting and design services meet the Ministry of Affairs and Housing of Ontario Building Codes, and also Local By-laws.

4 Steps

Step 1 - FREE Consultation

In light of Covid-19, we  feel the best way to plan a consultation will be;

Schedule a ZOOM Meeting online, or set up a meeting, abided by Safety protocols. Or not to mention, the option to schedule a personal one-on-one phone call. 

A consultation runs about one hour, furthermore, we will have a discussion and answer any questions you may have about process, and expectations.

Lastly, we will provide a quote, if you wish to move forward, we then move ahead and schedule a site measure.

Step 2 - Site Measure

Site measures are performed by our Team members. The process involves:

  • measuring room dimensions
  • window openings
  • door heights and more.

Moreover, the time it takes to perform a site measure depends on:

Specifications and details, and the size of the structure and possible complexities. 

 

All Safety Protocols are in place for us to perform a site measure at any location. 

Step 3 - Conceptual Drawings & Discussion

Client original sketches/drawing, plans on-line ideas, and pdfs are used, in addition, we provide 2D floor plans, as well as, 3D renderings for final approval. 

Then when a client is satisfied with the results, we then proceed to the final process, Building Permit Plans

Step 4 - Building Permit Plans

During the Building permit Phase, we work to include the following drawings;

  • electrical, elevations
  • cross-sections
  • roof truss drawings, & more

Changes can occur due to possible variances in a set of plans, when complete, we then submit the plans to the municipality to have the final review and eventual approval.

Plan Types

Concept drawings or sketches are drawings, often freehand, that are used by designers such as architects, engineers and interior designers as a quick and simple way of exploring initial ideas for designs

The idea behind a set of Existing-Condition drawings is to provide the most detailed view possible of a particular structure and property in 2D. These plans are utilized by Architectural technicians, interior designers, space planners, engineers, and contractors for the purpose of showing what is where before modifications are done.

Design drawings are used to develop and communicate ideas about a developing design. They are then be used to: Develop and communicating the brief.  Many revisions or variances can take place during this process.

When applying for a building permit or planning case, applicants will need to provide all relevant architectural plan sets/drawings. These plans, that have been worked on with clients, display the layout and aesthetics of a proposed project and include details regarding the following:

  • Site Plans
  • Floor Plans
  • Roof Plans
  • Elevations
  • Sections and Details
  • Material Schedule

We hope this helps you understand the full process to produce a Set a Plans.

2D Floor Plans

A 2D floor plan is a diagram that shows the layout of a property or space with an overhead. It  shows the walls and room layout, plus fixed installations like windows, doors, stairs, and furniture.  A 2D floor plan is a “flat” drawing with no perspective or depth.

2D Plans produced include:  the conceptual drawings, existing, design and permit plans.
