Building designers need to be creative in their approach to design. They need to be able to interpret what a client tells them and turn those ideas into creative designs. Working knowledge of building codes and building industry standards is crucial.
Job responsibilities of a building designer include:
- Consulting with clients to determine building use, plans, and size
- Making suggestions about physical look of the building, interior layout and meeting budget limitations
- Presenting preliminary and concept design to finalized working drawings
- Stay abreast of new zoning laws and regulations; architectural trends; and design products
With over 30 years’ experience in residential building design, Ian Picone Design has built an extensive portfolio of award winning custom built homes that combine high quality materials with innovative design to meet each client’s needs and desires.
My designs use and incorporate passive design elements that make the most of natural light and air. My designs follow the natural topography as much as possible as well as other green and eco-friendly practices to ensure that these homes are not only pleasing to the eye but are environmentally friendly and functional as well.
I am a multi-award winning practice, both at State and National level, with the Building Designers Australia and with the State’s building industry generally having achieved numerous accolades from the Master Builders Association (MBA) and the Housing Industry Association (HIA).
I am a strong believer of affordable, quality new and renovated home designs.
