"Bill and the action plans team designed our extension which we have just finished building we are thrilled with the result he created the best design to maximize our home . They wanted to know what we wanted from the extension and achieved everything on our wish list. Because Bill used to be a builder the build made sense and he considered existing plumbing etc the builder completed the project and the plans were spot on we have referred Action plans to friends and family that have also received excellent service ."

Kevin Casey Design
Building Designers in Waterloo, New South Wales
"Kevin was fantastic from our first meeting and he made the entire process of renovating much smoother for us. We transformed our house into a 4 bd, play room, and 3 bathroom house. Kevin took my wife and I through the design process and it was amazing. He began by spending 2 hrs the first time we met, sitting at our dining table, after kids were in bed. During this time he was getting to understand us and to get a feel for our lifestyle to work out what was important to us. Once we had the brief done then he came back for another 2hr session, again after the kids were in bed, and he presented us with options. To be honest we fell in love with the sketches and it felt like he had been reading our minds. It was unbelievable. Kevin then helped us with the tender process and I still recall the reactions from the builders with respects to the degree of detail in the drawings. This allows the builders to provide more accurate estimates and it would lead to fewer disputes during the build process. This saved me on a number of occasions. Thank you Kevin and Jeff for making our dream home become a reality."

Jeff Karskens Designer
Building Designers in Waterloo, New South Wales
"When we decided to build our first house, we received multiple recommendations to use JKD, as they are a boutique, client focused firm that take each project personally. As I work in the development and construction industry, very few consultants refuse work to focus on their niche, but that is exactly what makes JKD unique. They don't do everything, but the design and detail pertaining to their niche, such as homes, renovations and extensions, are exactly the reason why we chose to work with JKD. With an excellent DA presentation, through to construction detailing and interior design, JKD made all the hard decisions easy, with the in-depth industry experience that is so obviously utilised in the firm. Client focused and results driven, JKD maximise the use and client scope as you would prefer. I would recommend JKD to anyone looking to design and construct any home."

As with all other professional services for home design and renovation, the best way to choose a building designer in Waterloo, New South Wales 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 Waterloo, New South Wales 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.


Once you have a shortlist of building designers in Waterloo, New South Wales, engage in face-to-face talks about your brief, to ensure you’re on the same page. To get the most value for your money, you want someone who understands you, agrees with your ideas – in relation to sustainable design, space and function – and has the qualifications and enthusiasm to translate ideas to paper and into a reality.
