Australian Design & Drafting’s team offers architectural floor plans as part of its CAD drafting services. This includes converting the floor plan to 3D and completing any remodelling of floor plans.
Accurate architectural plans assume paramount importance for architectural companies in providing tailor-made solutions. Australian Design & Drafting, a recognized industry leader in architectural drawing and drafting, with its 10+ years of experience of working with real estate agents, architects, construction and civil engineering companies, is well-equipped to handle your requirements capably.
The size and strengths of our team mean that your needs involving property house plans can be handled quickly by Australian Design & Drafting, regardless of volume and turnaround requirements. We are experienced in using major CAD platforms such as AutoCAD and can be relied upon to deliver large volumes of architectural plan conversions in a timely fashion.
WHAT IS ARCHITECTURAL FLOOR PLAN
A floor plan is the most fundamental architectural diagram, a view from above showing the arrangement of spaces in building in the same way as a map, but showing the arrangement at a particular level of a building.
Technically it is a horizontal section cut through a building (conventionally at four feet / one metre and twenty centimetres above floor level), showing walls, windows and door openings and other features at that level.
The plan view includes anything that could be seen below that level: the floor, stairs (but only up to the plan level), fittings and sometimes furniture. Objects above the plan level (e.g. beams overhead) can be indicated as dashed lines.
Geometrically, a plan view is defined as a vertical orthographic projection of an object on to a horizontal plane, with the horizontal plane cutting through the building.
WHAT IS SITE PLAN
A site plan is a specific type of plan, showing the whole context of a building or group of buildings. A site plan shows property boundaries and means of access to the site, and nearby structures if they are relevant to the design.
For development on an urban site, the site plan may need to show adjoining streets to demonstrate how the design fits into the urban fabric. Within the site boundary, the site plan gives an overview of the entire scope of work. It shows the buildings (if any) already existing and those that are proposed, usually as a building footprint; roads, parking lots, footpaths, hard landscaping, trees and planting.
For a construction project, the site plan also needs to show all the services connections: drainage and sewer lines, water supply, electrical and communications cables, exterior lighting etc.
Site plans are commonly used to represent a building proposal prior to detailed design: drawing up a site plan is a tool for deciding both the site layout and the size and orientation of proposed new buildings. A site plan is used to verify that a proposal complies with local development codes, including restrictions on historical sites. In this context, the site plan forms part of a legal agreement, and there may be a requirement for it to be drawn up by a licensed professional: architect, engineer, landscape architect or land surveyor.
2D AND 3D FLOOR PLAN CONVERSIONS OPTIONS AT AUSTRALIAN DESIGN & DRAFTING
All of our floor plans are designed to meet Australian Design Codes. Australian Design & Drafting invites enquiries and we can start assisting you once we receive your input files, which may be PDFs, hand-drawn sketches or photo images of drawings. When necessary, we can also trace drawings or draft a drawing from scratch on a CAD platform. Here are several floor plan conversion options that we provide:
- 2D Floor Plans — We can convert hand-sketched drawings, PDF files or legacy drawings to 2D plans.
- 3D Floor Plans — Australian Design & Drafting can accurately draft a 3D architectural plan CAD drawing from legacy or 2D drawings (converting 2D to 3D). We can start with a hand sketch and first convert to 2D and then create 3D architectural plans.
- Other Architectural Floor Plans — We can work with all types of property plans such as industrial properties and other large-scale development projects.
- Remodelling Floor Plans — Australian Design & Drafting can remodel existing 2D architectural plans to meet changing requirements and then convert them to 3D floor plans as needed.
DELIVERABLE AND PROCESS
For large volumes, we can provide secure FTP access to transfer input files. Scheduling and costs will depend on the input files to be provided by the client. We can work with whatever you have — for example, creating 2D drawings from a basic input file and then converting to 3D architectural plans or conversion of your existing 2D floor plans to a 3D format.
Clients can always choose their preferred output format — PDF, JPG or DWG (either colour or black and white floor plans).
Australian Design & Drafting guarantees at least 98% accuracy in every project. We can maintain rigorous quality standards because of multi-level quality checks that start with trained and certified CAD drafters (all with two to five years of experience) and are constantly guided by a Senior CAD Engineer.
