精心規劃, 專業設計, 打造您理想的家園!

Every beautiful home starts with a quality design ~

WHAT WE DO?

For the most part, we design and draft house plans for people who want to build new houses, or renovate their homes. People then take those plans to apply for the necessary building permits.

There're more we do. Please see the "About Us" page if you're curious.

本公司主要提供在申请 新屋建造许可 或 旧屋翻修许可 时所需要的设计图纸。我们也提供其他服务,请见左上选单里的 “About Us" 介绍页。

WHY CHOOSE US?

We offer exceptional services and quality products, and our team is comprised of renowned experts in the industry with gazillion years of experience, and yada yada yada... We can go on and on with the same boring sales pitch like the others, but who cares?

So lets forget about all those, and cut to the chase of what ordinary home owners feel matter the most -- Cost.

There's always others out there who can do the same for less, so why choose us?

Because we can save you $$$. How so?

To apply for a Building Permit, you need to have an Architectural Plan and also a Structural Plan. It's true there are others out there who can provide you with either plan. So to get the best deal, you can shop around town, and get the cheapest designer to do the Architectural Plan for you, and also the cheapest engineer to do the Structural Plan as well.

So far so good, until your plan get rejected by the municipal Plan Checker during the permit review. No big deal, just get your designer to revise the Architectural Plan. While you may argue (and win without having to pay extra) that its the designer's fault his plan got rejected, we bet 100% certain that your engineer will not do the structural plan revision for free -- Because it's not his fault! So you end up having to pay extra to your engineer to revise the Structural Plan, so that it can match the revised Architectural Plan.

How much are we talking about? To give you an ideal, we provide pure structural design service too, and our engineer charges $750 and up per revision, depends on the complexity of the changes.

Now imagine, if your house plan was unfortunately rejected a few more times during the permit review -- these revision costs can add up...

BUT if you choose us, we do both your Architectural Plan and the Structural Plan. If either of our plans got rejected by the Plan Checker, and end up having to revise either/both to match, we eat the designer/engineer revision costs in-house. That is -- Zero cost to our customers for any plan revisions*.

-----------------------

我们有最好的团队提供最好的服务 等等... 的推销行话都先省略,直接讲重点就是 - 选择我们可以替您省钱!

申请建筑许可需要俩种图 - 建筑图 和 结构图。两种图都有人画,但会同时画两种的却不多。最省钱的做法,是找全城最便宜的设计师来画建筑图,和全城最便宜的工程师来画结构图。

精打细算,乃致富之道。如能一帆风顺,实为良策。

但凡事有万一,不巧您的建筑图在市府审批的时候发现有 不合规定处,需要修改。因为自己的设计疏失,负责点的设计师就不跟您收改图的费用。建筑图改了,结构图得跟着改,但我们敢打包票您的工程师一定会跟您收额外改图的费用 - 因为错不在他。

这费用大约多少?本公司也有提供 纯结构设计的服务。这类情况,我们的工程师每次改图至少$750起跳,看复杂情况可能更多。

万一图纸在审批的过程多被打回几次,改图的费用叠加起来也会不少。

假如换做是由本公司一起承包您的建筑图和结构图,如有市府审批发现不合规定,一切改图费用由本公司承担,绝不多花客人您一毛钱。*


*Except if the plan revision was requested by the customer after permit submission. In such case, we do charge extra. As we always advise our customers, it's 10-times harder to make design changes once it's submitted for permit, and often it will delay the permit review process, and end up taking at least twice as long. So, take your time to review the plan before submission. Don't rush!

BEST WAY TO CONTACT US

It's unbelievable how much spam/scam phone calls we get now-a-days, and with the Caller-ID spoofing technology (check out the SCAM ALERT banner at the top of the page), there's no telling it's legit or fake when the phone's ringing.

Our office policy regarding phone calls are:

  1. We pick up a call, and there's a robot voice or recorded message coming from the other end, we hang up;

  2. We pick up a call, and it's silent on the other end, we hang up. (So please make sure you, the caller, make a sound first even if you don't hear greetings from our side, because it's our proprietor "Silent Scam Detector" trying to determine if the call is legit.)

  3. We just hang up if the caller-ID shows "Private Number". (So please don't hide your number.)

  4. We just hang up if the caller-ID shows a non-local area code. (Currently we don't carry any business outside of Metro Vancouver.)

So the best way to get in touch with us is actually by messaging via:

  • Email

  • Text message

  • Chat app (i.e. WeChat)

Message us with your questions, and we will reply ASAP. If you really feel like a voice chat, message us your number and we will call you back.

进来诈骗电话太多,除非认识的号码,否则不接。新客户欢迎先透过 简讯,电邮,或 通讯软件 跟我们取得联系。谢谢!
