What Makes John Anthony Drafting And Design Special?
John Anthony Drafting & Design is special in a sense that it is different. Wouldn't be considered a draftsman, and wouldn't be considered an architect. But a cumulation of architect, engineer and draftsman. And this is what separates myself from the rest of the competition. If you were to think about a draftsman, you'd think of somebody who... Actually, I have draftsmen that work for me, who know the computer, they know the #AutoCAD
and the CAD programs, in and out. They can drop lines. They're very good at that. They have, they lack hands-on experience. They've never built anything, nor designed anything. So, it's a little challenge working with a draftsman. But yet, there are draftsmen out there doing designs for clients. But you run into a lot of problems using the draftsmen. Draftsmen lack that field knowledge.
An architect usually works under the premise. They'll draw the design. They'll work with the client, come up with a real nice design, but it usually has to bounce off the draftsmen and engineer. And it reverberates to these three people. I know structure, so I have a very limited need for a structural engineer, only to oversee and seal my plans. I pretty much run the show as far as that's concerned. I tell the engineers how I want to build the project. Working in a luxury home industry, I have a good eye. Years of work with all the architects in this area, building their homes, I've seen their short comings. I've seen what could have been done, or what should have been done. So, you see all these shortcomings, you really find out what you don't want to do, or what should not be done on a project. So, you take that in consideration with, I feel I do have a real good eye.
I know volume. Volume is very important. It's the feel you get when you come into a space or an environment. It's very important. Some designers haven't a clue what volume is. You walk into a room. You got a 30 foot ceiling, and you got a 14 foot of floor area. It just doesn't work. You get in there, you're stuck. You don't get a good feel for that environment. That's why volume is very important when it comes to designing. The heading that I go by is architectural designer. So, John Anthony Drafting & Design is an #architecturaldesigner
which differs from the #drafting
, or a #draftsman
, and/or an architect. So, I'm kinda out there by myself, cutting a new road. And I feel real positive that I can provide an excellent service for anybody wanting to design any type of project. Doesn't matter the shape, size or style.
