Our Services 

Content Creation

CAD (computer-aided design) software is used by architects, engineers, drafters, artists, and others to create precision drawings or technical illustrations. CAD software can be used to create 2D drawings or 3D models.

 CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) is software used to design hundreds of objects, materials and components that are used in a building project.

Collating and sorting this information into ‘families’ is a required process in any major build.

At Drafting Solutions this is a process in which we excel. We create ‘libraries’ of products using the Revit software, enabling accurate budgeting and timely delivery.

Shop Drawings

Upon completion of the modelling process, Drafting Solutions provide a set of shop drawings, which contain vital information and can be submitted to clients/engineers prior to installation for their review & approval. These shop drawings also contain critical information for the installation of the service, including sizes, dimensions, setouts etc. Shop Drawings are tailored to fit each client and trade, this helps all roles to work efficiently, save time and money.

With shop drawings, major errors can be avoided. Without the knowledge and information that shop drawings bring, components may be manufactured incorrectly, processes can be neglected, plans might be overlooked and building elements can collide.

Keep your project on track with the best quality shop drawings from Drafting Solutions. 

Services Coordination

The most important part of any project is the planning. It applies to design, build and the co-ordination of various trades.

Having an overview of where everything fits makes life a lot easier for everyone concerned. Most importantly, it makes for a timely, cost-effective build.

Clash detection is an important process when building commercial projects. By highlighting any clashes or issues during the design process, it reduces the risk and time frames during construction. 

Drafting solutions use several software packages to efficiently coordinate services during the design and shop drawing process.  

Lead coordination is another service Drafting Solutions offer, where we manage the coordination process and collaborate with other trades to deliver a clash free project. 

When Drafting Solutions are involved in a project we attend everything from the initial design meetings early on in the process so we can ensure that allowances are realistic, right through to producing the shop-drawings and final handover.

Operations & Maintenance Manuals

Working hand in hand with our as constructed drawings, operations and maintenance manuals document the services provided, equipment installed, operational requirements and maintenance requirements for a commercial construction project.

These manuals detail every aspect of the project that the contractor is responsible for. They are straight-forward and easy to understand, providing accurate information that can be accessed with confidence.

Drafting Solutions sources & collates the above information into an easy to read document which is sent the building owner.
