We are a full service residential and commercial design firm specializing in high performance and passive house designs in British Columbia, as well as renovations and new construction design to suit any style. Our Certified Residential Designer has also crafted stock residential home plans for faster development and ROI for RS zones in Vancouver and the lower mainland.
Our design philosophy is rare within the industry: we do not have a signature look or style. Instead, we prefer to look at every project and see what the Clients need and want, and design to those specifications. We do not over-design; nor do we have an ego about our designs. We only want to make sure that every Client receives a design that meets the relevant Building Code, Municipal By-Laws and their expectations.
Our Core Values: to live so that at the end of every day we can respect ourselves, each other and the work we have competed, knowing that we have done out best to ensure success.
Something to be aware of is that these days the permitting application processes for proposed renovations, new builds, and even minor land use approvals require detailed drafted plans and drawing packages. These requirements are also being updated on a very regular basis. Our permit packages meet municipal submission requirements and we work with City Staff to ensure that the City is engaged and receptive to a project as early as possible. We further increase the City’s comfort with the project by ensuring that all of the required and recommended Professionals are engaged on the project. This all results in faster permit processing times.

I have owned my own company and been in the industry for over 12 years. I have never had a designer work so hard for me.

Draft On Site offer permit-grade plan sets which have always passed through City Hall without a problem.
They have thorough grasp of what will work within the constraints of the City By-Laws.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Draft On Site Services Inc. as a quality design company.
Friendly and polite, they were unobtrusive, and amazingly quick.
