Drawings

The practice is fully computerised, which offers a range of advantages to our clients. Sharing documents with other consultants, especially other designers, makes our work and theirs much more cost effective, a benefit which can be passed on to our clients. Rather than wasting time on the mundane task of reproducing drawings, we can give more time to the design process, and quickly explore a range of options. Using computers also assists in record keeping. The software we use is configured to ensure we can communicate effectively with PC users. The office can receive and issue drawings in a wide range of electronic formats. Most Planning and Building Regulation applications are made digitally, saving the cost of printing on to paper.
