Frequently Asked Questions

What does a Draftsman do?
Similar to an architect, a draftsman prepares building plans for all kinds of residential, commercial and industrial projects.

In the past, a draftsman would work under the guidance of an architect and do all the detailing of a design sketch. Through the advancement of CAD technologies, the industry changed and so did the role of the common draftsman.

Now, complete building packages are prepared by draftsmen/building designers. The Building Designers Association of Australia estimates that 75-80% of residential work is completed by draftsmen/designers.

What is a Floor Plan?
A floor plan is essentially a map view or layout at one level of a building. Floor plans are scaled drawings with dimensions, room names, window and doors shown in relation to the property boundaries.
What is a Elevation?
An elevation is a flat view looking directly at the facade of a building, dependant on the direction it faces. Example: The “north” or “northern” elevation of a building would be the face which is facing north.
What is a Section?
A section is an imaginary line cutting through a plan and creating a “cut through” projection view. This shows the levels of the floor, walls, roof and other elements in relation to the ground level as well as key details required for your project.
What is a Shadow Diagram?
A shadow diagram is an architectural drawing required by council for any new dwellings and most renovations/extensions. A shadow diagram is measured at the summer solstice (December 21st), winter solstice (June 21st) and the equinox (either March 21 or September 21). The times required are usually 9am, 12 noon and 3pm.
What is a Statement Of Environmental Effects?
A statement of environmental effects is a report that explains the likely impacts of the proposal. Larger proposals also may require impacts of air, noise, traffic or efficiency to be explained. Standard residential statement of environmental effects are sufficient if they include:

  • The site and it’s environment
  • Location of site
  • Site description
  • Exisiting & surrounding development
  • Proposed development
  • Local environmental plan & DCP compliance table
  • Non-compliances
  • Matters for consideration – Section 79C
