About Me

My genuine passion for draughting, and technical expertise, means I take complete ownership of my client’s projects; ensuring deadlines are met, and documentation is of the highest quality and accuracy.

Project Collaboration

Aaron specializes in producing architectural drawings for Tender, Building Consent and Construction for medium to large scale projects, both in the commercial and residential sectors. He manages this part of the process from a remote office in close collaboration with the designer, ensuring compliance with all relevant council and building regulations, co-ordinating the design with other disciplines involved and applying his innovative problem-solving skills.
