Why Choose Us?
The choice of a professional to design and draw your next home is an important one. It can mean the difference between a house that you may not like, and a place that you'll love to call HOME!
We design and draw residential projects all day, every day. Our primary focus is residential construction - not just a sideline or hobby done afterhours. We are always reachable by telephone, voicemail and email.
Our staff have over 32 years of combined experience in the residential construction industry. We have designed and drawn everything from entry level homes through to some of Saskatoon's most luxurious homes.
Over the years we have developed good working relationships with many of Saskatoon's leading subtrades, suppliers, city officials and inspectors. We regularily talk with them to understand their needs, and incorporate them into the design and drawings we provide.
We typically are involved in the design and drawing of over 300 projects per year in Saskatoon, and all around Saskatchewan.
As architectural technologists, we are more than draftspersons with a CAD system. We are fully trained in building design principals, various construction methods and materials, solid structural design and communicating the design intent to the contractor in a clear and concise manner.
We stay current in our knowledge of the National Building Code by attending periodic classes for new changes to the Code.
We also use only the latest versions of CAD software, with yearly update classes taken by all staff.
SInce our inception, we have been members of the Saskatoon & Region Home Builders' Association [provide link to SRHBA website here]. We feel it is important to support an organization that is the voice of the residential construction industry - providing better quality homes for all of us!
We have been fortunate to be recognized by our peers through the SRHBA's annual Bridges Awards, winning a total 10 awards in the past 10 years in Professional Service, Innovation of the Year, and other association categories.
We also have a membership with the Saskatchewan Applied Science Technologists and Technicians (SASTT) association [www.sastt.ca link].
Excellent design and drawings will more than pay for themselves during the course of the build. Bad drawings will cost you many times their initial cost.
We are known throughout Saskatoon as providing some of the best quality drawings. Feel free to ask any subtrade or supplier about this!
We also provide all of our drawings in color - thereby making them even easier to read.
For those clients who have trouble visualizing from 2D drawings, for an extra fee we can provide a 3D building information modelling (BIM). If you are unsure of what the project will look like, the 3D visualization we can provide can offer some peace of mind. It is better to spend a little now, and feel assured of what you are going to get, than build a house that you are unhappy with.
With the complexity of today's custom homes, questions often arrise from subtrades, suppliers and city officials. We are always here to assist you in clarifying any these issues.
