Ask any Interior Designer and they will tell you that construction drawings are the road map for a successful project. They communicate our design and ensure that our ideas are accurately executed. And best of all, a good set of drawings can you save you a whole lot of moola. Read on to find out why using CAD (Computer Aided Design) is the best way to take your project from concept to completion.
COMMUNICATION: Our schematics tell our contractors and trades exactly what to do. Our drawing sets include everything from lighting locations, millwork design, tile layouts, to locations of new partitions.
ACCURACY: Interior designers are trained to consider human interaction with the built environment. We use CAD to ensure that our designs and ideas function. It’s a great resource for ensuring appropriate ergonomics, circulation, and allowances.
THE DETAILS: The difference between good design and great design is in the details. Our drawings always include construction details to deal with tricky on-site conditions. CAD allows us to clearly communicate those details to our clients and trades.
PERMITS: All construction projects require a building or development permit. You will require a set of drawings that include floor plans, elevations, and construction details to get approved. CAD guarantees clean and professional drawings for the city to review.
COST SAVINGS: “ An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. Mistakes in the construction phase can be very costly so getting everything right at the onset can save you huge. Invest in a good set of drawings to ensure everyone is on the same page and things are executed exactly the way you envision.
Producing drawings is a big part of the job for Interior Designers, but time spent in the schematic design phase is never wasted. We hope this inspires you to use a design professional, and get the drawings you need, for your next project!
