Architectural Design


Bay Area Designer Builders will design your dreams, while keeping within your budget. All of our drawings are completed with ACAD and other state of the art design software. We have many years experience with these processes. This allows for:

  • Very fast and accurate as-built drawings.
  • Quicker changes to existing drawings lowers design costs.
  • Gives the client more creative control and direction in the design process.
  • Helps develop the scope of work for the permit process and construction
  • Aids in estimation by both BADBI and subcontractors
  • Faster response to City building departments that require changes in the originally submitted drawings
  • 3D Renderings and drawings which helps you visualize the finished design prior to construction
  • Clients own the cad files at the end of the design and permit phase
  • Designs created in AutoCAD add value for future remodeling or when selling your property

All of this, allows us to charge much less than other design professionals which translates into considerable savings.
