Architectural Plans and Drafting

Whether your objective is to construct a New Ground Up Building, Addition, Remodel, or anything else which requires a structural rearrangement, you will need Architectural plans in the form of a proper Architectural Permit Set. This is required before the start of the engineering activities. We provide the following architectural plans and drafting services;

For Residential
  • Architectural Plans for a New House
  • Plans for a Home Remodel, Addition or an Extension
  • Plans for your ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit)

For a Commercial property
  • Architectural Permit for Tenant Improvement
  • Architectural Plans for your New Commercial Building (like for an office, a warehouse, hotel, multi-family unit or a condo)
  • Permit sets for Change Of Use permit
  • Architectural Permit sets for Mixed-use building (Residential over Commercial)

Our trusted Architect partners with a highly experienced team of California Architects and Draftsmen can provide complete design and planning services for Residential and Commercial buildings. With a reputation for exceptional quality and value, dependability and integrity – we provide unparalleled responsiveness tailored to your unique needs.

As-built drawings

If the As-built plan (the actual architectural plan of your existing building that you want to upgrade) is not available with you, you may need to get it done through a site visit by an Architect. This is to understand the current site conditions and to provide you realistic ideas by evaluating your needs and city/county requirements for the Addition or Remodel to be done in your house or commercial building.
