Our skilled draftsman in Sydney strives to offer quality services to get the best possible outcome for your design. We have been in the industry for over ten years, producing designs and providing architectural drafting services for residential projects. Our work revolves around medium to large-scale alterations and additions, refurbishing existing dwellings, creating second stories, decks and al fresco areas, and connecting pools. We also specialise in new dwellings and a small amount of commercial work.
Our director, Gregg Barr-Jones, established Rapid Plans after discovering that many clients were struggling to find design consultants and architects at an affordable rate. Greg structured the business with minimal permanent staff instead of ongoing relationships with contractors. This setup provides cost-effectiveness and flexibility. Rapid Plans has since delivered quality drafting services to Sydney residents. Moreover, we have also become a chartered member of the Building Designers Association of Australia, which means you can trust us to meet and exceed your expectations.
Every construction project in Sydney starts with a design idea, and a draftsman develops these ideas into drawn plans for submission to an Approval Authority (a council or a certifier). Our draftsman can help you with the council process, submission, and building design. The approval process depends on boundary setbacks, lot size, and type of street frontage. A simple new build or renovation tends to comply with Complying Development Certificate (CDC) codes, while a challenging site will require a Development Application (DA) from your local council. Our draftsman will make an initial inquiry with the local council and make a preliminary selection of materials and finishes after discussing your design.
The rules set out by Sydney’s local council are there to keep people safe. We ensure that every building we handle meets all the relevant requirements and development standards. We guarantee you’ll get a positive outcome, whether you have a small or large project.
Are you looking to undertake a renovation or new dwelling project? If so, it’s critical that you hire a qualified draftsman in Sydney to prepare building plans that comply with the National Construction Code (NCC), Building Code of Australia (BCA), and local government’s development control plans (DCP) and local environmental policy (LEP). The local council will implement these controls during the development application (DA) process through the council town planner or assessor. These codes are confusing for homeowners. The best thing to do is to partner with a qualified and experienced draftsman to help you handle these processes.
Our Rapid Plans team deeply understands building construction, council controls, and building regulations. We will help you prepare an excellently designed home for you and handle all the complicated council and complying development submissions. We are professionals in the industry and promise to provide a service you can trust.
