Building a new office block

We have a big site at work but after the company expanded we were running very short on office space. Most of our accounts team was in a demountable office and they were really hot in summer and cold in winter. It was so much better for the whole team once we got the new office block built on site. This blog talks about the process of building a new office block, including the design and construction of a block for your team. I hope it will be useful for anyone looking to build a new office block on their site.

Why Architects Should Consider Enlisting the Services of CAD Drafters

Troy Medina

Over the years, a lot of things have changed in the construction world, but it's a no-brainer that architectural drafting remains one of the most indispensable parts of the building construction process. Today, CAD software can be used to generate accurate architectural drawings for the further creation of building designs. As a result, modern architects do not need to make architectural drawings themselves. Instead, they can rely on drawings produced by CAD drafters to make final designs for buildings. But before outsourcing work to CAD drafters, architects need to be aware of the benefits that are up for grabs. 

If you are an architect, you should read on to get acquainted with the benefits you stand to gain by enlisting the services of an architectural CAD drafter. 

Cost savings

Purchasing, installing, operating and maintaining architectural CAD software requires huge financial investment. By hiring the services of a CAD architectural drafting professional, architects do not have to make such a large investment, which involves hiring a team of highly competent personnel to operate the software. For only a small fraction of the total amount of money required to generate CAD drawings in-house, architects can get exactly what they need to come up with appropriate building designs for their projects. The costs savings associated with outsourcing cannot go unnoticed. 

Time savings

When it comes to the implementation of any construction project, we all know that it is essential to stick to the set time budget. Project delays may lead to an increase in total overhead costs for both contractors as well as stakeholders. Architectural CAD drafters maintain a team of efficient and devoted professionals who can work all day and all night to see to it that they deliver your drafts in good time, if not in record time. You can, therefore, be assured of getting the drafts you will need to complete your architectural designs on time.

Increase in the overall efficiency of the design and building process 

Enlisting the services of an architectural CAD drafting specialist can improve the overall efficiency of the designing process by eliminating the need to budget for drafting time. This means the available staff can dedicate their limited time on other important aspects of the designing process, such as obtaining approval documents.  This makes the actual execution of the project much faster. For instance, modelled concept designs from the drafter won't demand further quality checks, as the modelling process allows for quick modifications.
