What is a Building Designer?

Of course, the simple answer is that Building Designers design buildings, but in fact there is much more to what has become the profession of building design.

The BDA estimates that 75-80% of residential work is currently designed by Building Designers. These figures appear to be consistent with the findings of other groups…

Why use a Building Designer?

A Building Designer can assess the strengths and weaknesses of your building site and your existing home, in the case of an addition or renovation. Based on this information, they can then discuss with you how your required outcomes can best be achieved.

Selecting a Building Designer

The design is likely to be the most important part of the building project that you are about to embark on. Selecting the right designer is the key to achieving a successful building project.
