Drafting is the architectural drawing of a building. It is needless to say that this needs qualification and expertise. Basically this is the inception of a home, school, restaurant, factory, office etc. Of late, the real estate market in Darwin is undergoing a dip for whatsoever reason. So, if you plan to buy a land and build your own house for living purpose, this is the right time.
For most of us, home is a dream very close to our heart. We invest almost our entire life to make one house in our lifetime and turn into a home- a haven where we long to come back. Once we start this venture, we want everything to be best- from location to design. In most of the cases, location of a new house depends upon availability or/and convenience, i.e. proximity to your office or kids’ school, but when it comes to design, you can surely do a lot towards it.
When you are looking to get that perfect home plan for your upcoming house you would do well to keep a few things in mind. The first thing that you need to keep in mind is the fact that majority of the house plans are done in such a way that they reflect the immediate community where the said house is going to be built. At the same time, the house would reflect your personality as well. These days, designers are coming up with new styles each and every day. All these creators are looking to create the perfect modern home in their own style.
Buildings have many functions, making the ability to measure their effectiveness difficult. Building Designers face the challenge of producing a product which is not only structurally adequate for the intended site but also to produce a building which is aesthetically pleasing and practical from the perspective of its intended use. We live on a Planet with finite resources. This is a fact which is impacting our generation more than any that went before us. The construction of buildings consumes vast amounts of resources and energy. The buildings of the future will be designed to minimize the impact on resource use while maximizing product return.
It is usually the case that, construction costs for poorly designed buildings exceed those for well thought out and well designed buildings significantly. A well designed building not only looks amazing but is specifically suited for it’s intended site. The geographic location of the site, the elevation of the site and the orientation of the site combined with all of the local considerations are of great importance.
Proper design of buildings for construction in Darwin is imperative. The Climate is hot and humid and the occupants of the structure need to be comfortable. The use of materials orientation and design layout are crucial elements which when combined effectively produce a building of real value. In addition to this, Darwin is subject to cyclonic weather activity during the wet season. At Viking West Building Design and Drafting we pride ourselves on our ability to produce a design which is not only structurally cyclone rated but cost effective to build.
Sustainable building design is about reducing the impact a building has on its environment. This impact is largely two fold. First there is the the impact resulting from the manufacture of building materials. Secondly, there is the impact associated with the the life of the building. In other words, for every building constructed an area of land is devoid of the capacity to harbor vegetation etc. It is therefore critical that the design process maximizes sustainable principles and minimizes any negative consequences to the environment. Viking West Building Design and Drafting has many years experience in designing buildings that are appropriate for their climate and have minimal environmental impacts.
Site specific/ individual Building Design is very important in Tropical regions. The Climate is hot and humid and the occupants of the structure need to be comfortable. The use of materials orientation and design layout are crucial elements which when combined effectively produce a building of real value. Darwin is located in the Tropical regions of Northern Australia. There are two distinct seasons; the wet season and the dry season. At Viking West Building Design and Drafting we pride ourselves on our ability to produce a building which looks amazing and is well suited to the climate it inhabits.
