PDW Design Inc offers a full range of drafting services to provide you the client the advantage of outsourcing. As an alternative to inhouse drafting, we offer our clients a way to expand their resources without expanding their work space.
As-builts: these are drawings of an existing space or building. On-site measurements or original drawings are used to produce these existing spaces in CAD.
Design Concept Drawings
Design drawings: whether they are sketched on a napkin or professionally hand drawn. We transfer your ideas to CAD as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
3D rendering: these are essential in clearly illustrating your design intent to your client. It gives them a finished picture of what the project should look like once complete.
Construction drawings: these are a 100% completed set of drawings that the contractor uses to construct your project. Additional changes can be provided after these drawings have been issued.
Alberta Building Code Review
Alberta Building Code Review: these insure that your design corresponds with the local building code. It also assists the municipal plan examiners when they are reviewing the drawings to determine if the building code has been adhered to.
Architectural drawings: these are the main element in producing any kind of building or structure. These provide the base from which other consultants base their criteria from. They usually include the following drawings depending on the project type and size: Site-Plan, Floor Plans, and Roof Plans.
Permit Application Drawings
Permit application drawings: these are development and/or building permit drawings. Development permit drawings are a general set of drawings to show the municipal what your design intent is and the visual impact it may have on the streetscape and/or neighbours.
Tender drawings: a nearly completed set of drawings (usually 90% complete), that the contractor of your choice, will send out to multiple sub-contractors to bid on. They are the set of drawings trades use to provide an estimate or cost to build your project.
