Tailored Design, Drawing & Permit Services
Whether you’re designing your dream space, creating a commercial office, or renovating your forever home, careful planning and preparation is a critical first step. At SCOTT Home Design + Services, we simplify the design and permit process.
As your trusted new construction and renovation company, we completely manage the full design and build process and have the experience and skillset to ensure that your project meets design standards, building codes, and has all the proper permits in place, all while meeting essential timelines and milestones. Each client is unique, and every project is different, which is why we provide a plethora of services and offer a completely tailored design experience.
Architectural Drawings & Construction Drawings
We specialize in construction and permits for any type of residential or commercial build, including AutoCAD drafting services for:
• Architectural drawings
• Technical working drawings
• Engineering drawings
• Construction permit drawings
• Mechanical and HVAC drawings
• Topographic surveys
• Grading and site plans
Our experienced designers work primarily in AutoCAD to produce basic to advanced drawings, drafts and plans. We can supplement or complete the full design process for you, depending on your needs. All our plans, drafts and drawings follow the Ontario Building Code (OBC) and are stamped by a BCIN professional and/or Engineer based on your project requirements.
Flawless Structural Framing
The structural framing of your home is as critical as its foundation. SCOTT Home Design + Services has experience with structural framing using wood, engineered wood, and steel. Our framing is done professionally and seamlessly – always level with no cracks or creaks.
We regularly complete structural framing projects for newly built custom homes, as well as home additions, renovations, garages, and covered porches. Our work is all-inclusive —removing load-bearing walls by adding structural beams, reclaiming awkward spaces by altering roofs and dormers, laying subfloors, raising exterior walls, and more. From basements to kitchens to attics and all spaces in between, we work meticulously to ensure your home has ‘good bones’ —inside and out.
We take care of everything, including:
- Design and engineering
- Infrastructure – including plumbing, HVAC, electrical wiring, radiant floor heating, and smart walls (walls wired with the audio and technology you need)
- Carpentry and finishes (new stairs, bigger doors and windows, custom in-wall cabinets, and more)
Custom Drawing & Drafting Services
Not every project requires full architectural drawings created by a CAD technician. With our customized drawing and drafting services, we will provide you with exactly what you need, when you need it. Whether you have a one-time project that requires working drawings or would like to impress a new client with professional presentation drawings, we can help.
Building Design & Building Permits
SCOTT Home Design + Services helps homeowners across the GTA realize their vision with beautiful and unique spaces that are custom-suited to individual needs. We provide drawings, designs, and permits for building, demolition and renovations including structural, mechanical, electrical, and architectural permit drawings for custom builds and older homes with:
Laundry and Mudrooms
Outdoor Living Spaces
We also have extensive experience with drawings and permits for commercial and industrial projects, including Commercial Buildings, Multi-Story Residences, Underground Garages and Office Spaces.
A Worry-Free Approach to Permit Applications
Preparing all the necessary drawings is only the first step. If you choose, we will also submit the drawings to your city or municipality on your behalf. As industry leaders since 2004, we are committed to adhering to all federal, provincial, and local health and safety standards. Our drawings are always to code and comply with municipal zoning regulations.
We Are Your Project Advocates
More than designers, we’re strong consultants for our clients and we’re committed to making your project a reality! We are actively involved in using mediation and negotiation to effectively resolve disputes between parties.
As part of this process, we regularly communicate
with and appear before:
• Municipal Councils
• Committees of Adjustment
• Conservation Review Boards
• Local Planning Appeal Tribunals
Our proven experience means we have a strong understanding of what each city, municipality, conservation area and commission within the GTA requires, which ensures that we can address potential roadblocks early on to keep the permit process moving forward. Quick permit approvals help your project stay on time and budget!
