Image for Drafting and Design

Architectural drafters work with architects, building professionals, designers and the client to create detailed drawings and models of buildings in order to successfully meet client briefs, sustainable design solutions and submit documentation to council for development approvals.

Building designers may specialise in residential projects, including new buildings, heritage restorations and additions or renovations; or they may also undertake commercial and industrial projects, such as factories, motels, offices, restaurants, retail or service outlets and warehouses.
