About this pro

How does your business stand out?

With a focused attention to detail, and years of experience. We can provide you with just what you need in the fastest time possible. To me its not just detailing or laying out a home addition or providing plans for your deck, modeling pipe or ductwork, laying out a factory or creating a revit family for a manufacturer. To me Engineering and CAD it's an artform no different than sculpting or painting and I take pride in the quality and attention to detail I put into every project.

    Highly Recommend and Will Hire in Future
    Charles was incredibly easy, professional, and fast to work with. He turned around revisions and changes rapidly and was very reasonable in his rates. I highly recommend him for architectural design and drafting as well as interior design CADD.

    Charles was very helpful, prompt and extremely affordable. He walked us thru an entire process, that was very new to us, and he was informative, reliable and responded quickly. His drafts were perfect. We will use him again, if the need arises. I recommend him 1000%!

    Was affordable and provided detailed drawings of a front entrance of a residential house which was provided in a timely manner as promised. Charles also helped to make adjustments the permitting office requested. I would recommend him.

    Charles created some great drawings for us when we were under a major time crunch. He was patient, professional and created great work just as instructed. We will continue to use Charles in all future drafting needs! Thanks Charles!

    Charles Goin does good quality CAD work at very attractive pricing. Our project included 7 detailed sheets with bill of materials included for large bore PVC pipe in a water treatment process. Good, detailed feedback is required to get proper fix-up of draft versions. After just a few weeks of review and revisions we felt we received an excellent value for our money.

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Minimum fee is $200, that covers the initial project setup and 4-8 hours. Most small residential projects can be completed in this time frame. Larger project pricing varies depending on the level of detail needed, and complexity. My price is always negotiable once I see what I am dealing with. Larger and more complex BIM projects I can negotiate either a hourly rate or give a "Not To Exceed" based quote if given enough information.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am a AutoDesk Beta tester and I am always staying up to date on the latest software and changes in the field.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I provide whatever a client needs. If you can sketch it I can draft it. Residential floor plans off of pictures and rough dimensions, to full 3D BIM models in Revit based off engineered plans, and everything in between.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look for someone that not only has the experience, but also cares about what the customer is looking for.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Although I have a lot of experience with large projects, I have as much experience with small ones. It doesn't matter if my client is a homeowner looking for a set of plans to build a patio, or remodel their kitchen, an inventor with an idea that he needs to modeled, or a mechanical subcontractor looking for someone to model the plumbing or HVAC of a multi-Million dollar facility. I treat everyone as I would want to be treated, and provide only the best and most comprehensive services to all my clients, in the most timely and cost effective manner.
