As with all other professional services for home design and renovation, the best way to choose a building designer in Mackay, Queensland is to asses their past work against the style and requirements you have for your individual project.

How does a building designer differ from an architect?



The role of building designers has evolved from traditional drafting services to building design that takes into account your lifestyle, budget and site condition. Building designers in Mackay, Queensland also often work with contractors to ensure that structural elements are in line with desired aesthetics.

It’s hard to draw a line between building designers and architects – both design homes and offer similar services. However, the main difference is that a building designer, in most states, isn’t required to register or licence with a regulatory figure.

The work of a building designer usually begins by interpreting your requirements into a sketched floor plan. Once agreed upon, the designer then moves on to the drafting and documentation stage, whereby drawings are submitted to council for approval. Some building designers also take care of contract management – that is, hiring builders, managing materials and labour costs, and advising you about any local council by-laws that may concern your project.

How do I find the right building designer for my home design project?



Most states don’t have specific registration processes for building designers, so it’s best that your search is based on past work and referrals. Some industry bodies or professional associations, such as the Building Designers Association of Victoria (BDAV), offer a list of members, which you can check against bodies such as the Victorian Building Authority (VBA), to gauge their type of work and any registration numbers. For instance, the VBA will provide you with draftsmen or draftspersons options within building design work for architectural, interior or general design services.
