About Me

My name’s Michael Kelly, I’m the owner of Streamline Building Designs. I’m also the sole building designer and draftsman who personally carries out all building design & drafting work.

When you hire me, you get to deal directly with me throughout the entire process. I’ll work with you to create a design that’s energy efficient, functional, attractive and cost effective to build.

My Experience

I have over 12 year’s experience working as a building designer and draftsman in the construction industry. As an accredited building designer I’ve produced design and building plans for a wide range of custom new houses and other residential projects. I’ve also detailed a wide range of construction methods including timber framed, steel framed, brick veneer, double brick & SIP (structural insulated panels).

Prior to starting Streamline Building Designs I worked for several custom home builders as an architectural draftsman. I’ve also worked as a structural draftsman, construction scheduler and cost estimator. This experience has helped me develop a good understanding of both architectural and structural design, construction methods and construction costs.

Design & Drafting Process

1. Proposal

To get started simply contact me with some details about your project or to arrange a meeting. Once I’ve got enough information about your project I’ll provide an obligation free proposal.

2. Concept Design Drawings

While working on your concept design drawings I’ll review the information you’ve provided, confirm any necessary details and review your local council planning requirements. I’ll also make suggestions to improve your design if I see opportunities to do this.

3. Detailed Design Drawings

Your detailed design drawings will be completed to the level required for a planning approval. If your project requires a planning approval, I can help you arrange this yourself or I can recommend a planning consultant who can do this for you.

4. Building Plans

Your building plans will be detailed to the level required for building approval and construction. I include some extra details that help your builder and consultants clearly understand your project.

Once your happy with your building plans I can recommend any required consultants including an engineer, energy assessor & building surveyor. Your building surveyor will assist in arranging your building approval.

As I guarantee building approval, any changes requested by your building surveyor will be provided free of charge.
