CAD designer. Excellent communication and very knowledgable. Everything was done quickly and the price was right.

About

I have over 25 years of experience in 2-D and 3-D modeling using the AutoCAD software. My primary work experience have been in detailing specialty machinery, updating redline changes, manufacturing system drawings, 3-D assembly models for trade show displays, and creating step-by-step assembly instructions for those particular assemblies.

About

I specialize in mechanical design buildings from the ground up, mechanical piping design (3D if required), plans ISOs, section cut, P&IDs and many types of conveyor systems.

About

I do 3-D and 2-D CAD models and drawings. I have a full-time job and do this at home on the side. I have 15 years experience using AutoCAD, SolidWorks, Solid-Edge, and Pro-E CAD software. I can travel to your location to discuss the work needed and do most of the work at home.

About

I offer drafting services for design professionals and the construction industry. Some of my services include: - Civil design plans (demolition, site layout, grading, utility, swppp, drainage, details) - Volume calculations - Architectural detailing - Space planning - Custom millwork design and shop drawings details and specs - As-builts - In-house CAD training and support - And more My experience: I have worked in the construction business, in some way, since 1990. I started out installing HVAC for Lenox and learning basic building construction from my dad for his local business. I have worked for three Nashville custom millwork and furniture companies, both as a woodworker and a project manager where I began to learn more about the intricacies of design. As technology became prevalent in business, CAD design became an integral part of my daily work. I ran a crew for a computer networking company as an installation foreman/technician, while simultaneously continued the drafting work for several architects and interior designers who had worked with me at the millwork company. I was in charge of creating all of the as-built drawings for a low-voltage company. I, then, went into the civil engineering world, as a Project Manager, and was left in charge of all design elements, as well as heading up the CAD design department. Throughout the years, I have continued to create plans of all kinds and lead in-house CAD training courses for woodwork, architectural, interior design, electrical, HVAC and civil engineering companies. My pricing ranges from project to project, as I do drawings for many industries, some even 3D. I can price by the job, by the SF, hourly or even give an "hourly, not to exceed" number, if you'd like.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do architects work?

Architects may work for an architecture or engineering firm, they may work for a government organization, they can work for a construction company, or they may be self-employed (freelance). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics explains that architects spend a large amount of their working time in the home or company office: meeting with clients; creating reports and architectural drawings; and working with other architects and engineers. When not in an office, an architect is often at the construction site either as part of the development of plans or to ensure building progress is following the blueprint.

When a client interacts with an architect, it is typically to have them design drawings for the construction of a house or a building. If you are a client who has hired a large architecture firm, there may be a team of people working on your design. But if you are working with a freelance architect or a smaller firm, one person (or a small group) will take your concept and translate it into an architectural blueprint that a builder can use to construct a house. The plans will lay out everything from the depth of the foundation to the materials to use to the type of metal to be used in the reinforcement. Once the plans have been created and handed off to the builder, the architect may remain on the project — depending on budget — and oversee progress.

How do architects charge for their services?

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median salary of an architect in 2016 was $76,930. This range included architects with every type of company as well as self-employed architects. Depending on the architect and whether they’re with a firm or independent, they may charge per hour or by the square foot, or they may charge a percentage of the total budget for a construction project. An hourly rate is typically used for smaller projects such as providing consultation, helping clients hone their concept before the design process begins, or drafting documents and plans. If an architect is working on an hourly basis on a larger project, there will usually be an agreed-upon cap on the number of hours they will work. For larger projects, such as new construction or total overhaul remodels, architects may charge a percentage of the total construction costs. The architect will usually set the percentage you will pay after the total cost of construction has been accounted for. Percentages can range within a firm depending on the extent of the services they’re providing. For example, a lower percentage of the total construction costs may include drafting and minimal consultation and guidance along the way, while a higher percentage could include on-site project management services with every detail attended to. Architects may also charge by the square footage of the project. The rate per square foot can vary depending on the individual’s training, the services they are providing, the complexity of the project, and other factors — such as obtaining permits. The national average cost to hire an architect is between $1,690 and $2,500.
