Difference between a Draftsmen, Building Designer & Architect?

When building or renovating your home, you generally need a professional to design your house plans. Hiring a professional helps bring your vision to life and they can guide you through the build process.

So who do you hire? 
Building designers have come a long way compared to what draughting services have offered in the past. Building Designers are now considered and expected to include many services architects offer.

To call yourself an architect, you need to be registered with a State-based architecture board. They also spend at least 5 years at university and study the science, art and history of building design in considerable depth.

Building designers have evolved from draftspeople and come from may design-related or building backgrounds. These days building designers roles have extended into creating functional living spaces with consideration into energy efficiency and can provide like and architect, services in both residential and commercial construction design and documentation. When employed to, architects and building designers can act as the ‘contract administrator’ to oversee the entire construction project.

Overall when you are choosing a professional to design your home, you’re looking for someone who will fulfil your needs, maybe their previous work appeals to you but its important to remember, you need to feel the designer will achieve your design brief based on your budget.

As a building designer, my passion is taking a clients vision and exceeding their expectations.
