20 Years Designing & Drafting in Northland 

Arcline’s history goes back to the early 2000’s when Alan began designing and drafting homes and buildings around Northland. From running his own home design and build company it was the perfect foundation (pardon the pun) to begin designing and drafting designs in and around Northland. 

Now, having designed hundreds of homes around Northland we’ve got a very good grasp on the many factors at play on each site. Every site is different but there’s also ‘local’ knowledge, that intuitive instinct that comes with years of experience.

Draftsman, Architect, or Architectural Designer?

The term ‘draftsman’ is frequently used when referring to someone who is not an Architect or designer and simply draws what you tell them to. Draftsmen (aka draughtsmen) look primarily at the practical aspect of your project and how it will be constructed. On the other hand, Architectural Designers and Architects look at the aesthetics and interaction between the site and surrounding elements and the building itself. 

Both play a critical part in completing a successful project. We have both Architectural Designers and Draftsmen on our team, and also work with registered Architects on projects if their input is required. 

The biggest difference is fees. Draftsmen are generally a lot lower cost than Designers and Architects, however you get a lot less for your money, as they’re most often just drawing what you tell them to.
