What is a house designer?

A house designer is a professional responsible for producing technical drawings and plans in the field of construction. The building designer plays a primordial role in the implementation of your projects. Usually, the tasks of this professional may include: 
 

  • Analyze plans and specifications provided by architects or engineers

  • Prepare technical sketches, general plans
    and specific details

  • Use computer-aided design (CAD) software to create and modify sketches based on project changes. 

  • Collaborate with other team members to ensure sketches meet technical and regulatory requirements

  • Carry out field surveys to collect additional information needed to produce sketches

  • Develop bills of materials, drawings and specifications for materials and components
     

In short, the assignment of the house designer is transversal and crucial in the construction process. His drafts, will serve as a guide for contractors, workers and other professionals involved in your projects.

6 good reasons to hire a house designer

Why you should hire a house designer for your project?

Hiring a building designer offers several important advantages when starting a construction or renovation process. Here are some reasons why it is useful and beneficial to call on such a professional: 

A precise design: A house designer has the skills to translate the ideas and concepts of architects and engineers into precise and realistic drawings. These, highly detailed, provide a clear visual representation of the structure and elements of the building. This therefore makes it easier to understand and precisely execute your projects.

Compliance with regulations: house designers are familiar with the regulations and current construction standards. Therefore, they can ensure that the sketches meet certain legal and technical requirements. This ensures that the home complies with standards safety and quality.

Effective communication: technical drawings designed by a house designer facilitate communication between the different stakeholders in your projects. This includes both architects, engineers, contractors and workers. In fact, the sketches serve as a common visual reference. Therefore, this reduces the risk of misunderstandings or misinterpretations.

Optimize costs: the house designer helps to minimize execution costs. Indeed, by creating precise and detailed drawings, it helps identify and resolve potential problems before work even begins. This reduces the risk of costly modifications during construction. 

Better monitoring of planning: Thanks to detailed sketches, it is easier to follow and coordinate the different stages of construction. The sketches therefore also serve as a reference for the progress of your projects and make it easier to meet planned deadlines.

Have lifetime technical documentation: once the work is completed, the technical sketches of the house designer represent important documentation. Indeed, they provide precise information on the structure and installations. This therefore facilitates potential future maintenance operations, subsequent renovations and possible extensions.

Finally, hiring a house designer contributes to ensure the quality, safety and efficiency of the construction process. His skills, knowledge and cross-disciplinary communication make him a valuable professional for carrying out your projects.

Prepare your meeting with an house designer

The first meet with your house designer

First, before starting the process of creating your house plan, a work of reflection on your part is necessary. 

We therefore invite you to list the essential elements, which we divide into 4 categories: 

 

  • Personal factors: Clarify your ideas, your objectives, your desires, your expectations, your constraints, your budget and your financial limits.
     

  • Architectural factors: Think about your aesthetic preferences, your preferred architectural style, your requirements for materials, functionality or special features.
     

  • Technical factors: If you have any, gather any relevant documents (plans, sketches, photographs, surveys, etc.) or any other existing documentation.
     

  • Administrative and financial factors: If you are aware of specific legal or regulatory constraints related to your projects, share this information with your house designer from the start. Also identify important deadlines and schedule (deadline to respect, development of phases, etc.).
     

By preparing all of these elements in advance, you will be able to provide relevant, detailed and useful information to your referent. As a result, this will have the effect to facilitate communication, to create a productive and efficient collaboration, and therefore, speed up the process of your projects.
