Acadia Drafting is a design/build firm that specializes in building permit drawings and design for a wide range of clients, including residential, commercial and industrial projects. They are known as a full service architectural design agency in Toronto that can actually manage any renovation, new build and building permit approval.
The team specializes in managing projects from start to finish, with all drawings prepared in-house, which prevents wasting time on finding various different professionals to prepare only a specific set of drawings. Acadia’s designers prepare all drawings under one roof, including HVAC, electrical drawings, structural drawings and any other necessary drawings, based on the individual needs of the project.
The architects and designers at Acadia can also lead any type of residential project and ensure quick municipal building permit approval. Some of the common projects include custom homes, additions, interior alterations, basement renovations, second/multi unit dwellings, attached/detached garages and carports and others. Some of the programs they work with are AutoCAD, Revit, SketchUp, 3Ds Max and others, depending on the requirements of the project.
Serving the entire Toronto and the GTA, Acadia’s role in managing residential construction projects is two-fold: they prepare all the necessary drawings, but they also represent their clients’ best interests in terms of negotiating with building inspectors and contractors. This way, not only do they help their clients obtain a building permit for their project as quickly as possible, but they also ensure that the entire project goes smoothly and protect the clients against overpaying for construction materials and labour.
Usually, they start by giving the client a free inspection and quote. Once the scope of the project is set, the homeowner is given a set of options and designs to choose from. Once the design is approved, Acadia’s designers prepare all the necessary drawings for the project and submit them to the local municipality for approval. After that, construction can begin, and the project is underway.
Acadia Drafting is known across Toronto for their detailed plans and drawings that eliminate approval delays substantially. Their drawings are completed according to the Ontario Building Code and stamped by an Engineer and/or Architect, which ensures that every plan is done properly and that the project will be done on time and within budget.
