AusDesign is committed to providing a priority based design & drafting service to registered Builders.
As former Builders we appreciate the need to have available a reliable drafting service that will complete your designs ready for building approval quickly and efficiently with the minimum amount of interruption to your work schedule.
Our home/office situation enables us to be available 5 days a week ( 7am to 9pm ) to discuss your project. - We appreciate that many 'hands on' Builders work on after normal business hours and we have tailored our availability accordingly.
Builders can post, fax or email sketch drawings with relevant information to us and we will prepare an initial dimensioned floorplan for you to view and then compile any redraws necessary, until your Client is satisfied with the total layout.
The final working drawings will then be documented ready for council Building approval.
During this process reworked drawings can be posted or emailed to you, or loaded to our 'Clients Pages' for online viewing.
For established Clients we will set up a web page , together with your logo etc, within the locked area of our site where we can upload draft designs to for yourself and your Clients to view.
Our Builders fees are currently scheduled at $120 per square single storey, $150 per square double storey and include 3 redraws of layouts.
All drawings are documented on A2 size sheets and include :
- Floorplan - including full structural member list & general notes.
- Elevations - full elevations with relevant notations.
- Sections - as required. (mimimum 1)
- Bracing detail - full layout with location & type.
- Foundation detail - if soil report results within AS2870.
- Site Plan - including overshadowing & overlooking.
- Setout Plan - separate setout sheet for 'complicated' designs.
Footing and slab designs for sites determined by a soil test to be outside the standard Class A, S or M classifications as outlined by AS2870, Residential slabs and footings construction, will need to be designed by a Structural Engineer. We can work with your usual firm or arrange documentation for you.
Similarly, some structural items outside the scope of the 'Timber Framing Code" may need to be documented.
- we have a package for the smaller Builder without display homes, where we will provide a folio of 6 floor plans to your design, that you can advertise, show to prospective clients etc.
The initial cost is 30 percent of our normal price with the balance paid if you use a particular design.
For example - Folio of 6 plans at 150 m2 ( 16 sq ) designed from your sketch drawings total cost $3456.00. ( std. price $11520.00 ) If you have a client who looks to build say plan A, or a reasonably close modification, we will supply full working drawings & you pay the balance of $1344.00 for that particular layout. If the plans aren't used you do not pay the balance.
We are very flexible in our approach to design and drafting work. Contact us for any further information or to discuss your individual requirements.
