What does a draftsman service include?

Airtasker’s draftsman service connects you with a trusted drafter in your area. This draftsman can help you translate your vision into ready for construction blueprints (ideally, with the help of an architect). If you are booking this type of service for the first time, here’s what’s included:

Consultation for drafting services

If you already have a grand vision for your project, a drafter can help you convert it into blueprints that engineers can approve and construction companies can execute. Do take note that their consultancy field is limited; unlike architects, they cannot give a “holistic” vision for your project. The most that they can do is give minor tweaks to your idea and put it down on paper.

It would be best to consult with an architect before approaching a drafter with your plans. Your drafter may also have some architect colleagues to recommend, so you can ask them about this, too.

Creating technical drawings using CAD or traditional drafting

Drafters usually create technical plans or blueprints using computer-aided drafting and design (CADD). They may also use more traditional means, such as papers, pencils, and T-squares. Either way, they provide a very specific and calculated plan that a construction team can readily execute. If you have preferences as to how you want your technical drawings done, you can specify this in your task post.

Working with architects and engineers

The job of a draftsman involves working with architects, engineers, or even scientists. If you have already contacted an engineer and architect, you can hire a draftsman via Airtasker to complete your team. Our platform connects you with available drafters in your area so that you don’t need to look far or wait long before setting an appointment.

Beyond the home: other draftsman services

While a lot of people usually look for drafting services in relation to residential house plans, drafters can actually work with a lot of other industries. They can help you put up a commercial building, design a piece of machinery, help put together consumer goods, and even build rockets. Since their forte is in technical specifications, they are experts in putting things together and repairing them if they fall apart.
