I would not hesitate to use Alex's services in the future. He is very professional. I was kept informed the whole time of the many hurdles that Alex worked through. His services are well worth the reasonable cost.

Enjoyed Alex and his work. Only difficulty is that we felt he came with ideas already in mind. It took a bit of back and forth to get the drawings as we envisioned the space.

A.R.Bergman Drafting & Design's reply
Sometimes it is difficult to arrive at a design that works for everyone involved. My initial design ideas were based on economy and preserving property value while. I feel that I presented many design options, and worked closely with Karen and her family to include their ideas in the design. I believe we ultimately arrived at a design that worked for both of us, however this design was never ultimately permitted or built. Thanks for your honesty Karen!

It was an absolute pleasure hiring Alex to draw up plans for our building. His work is high quality and he is professional, communicative, and friendly. We will be hiring Alex again when we next need drafting & design services.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I usually bill $50/hr with an amount not to be exceeded. For example if you have a remodel project I think will take 60 hours, I will write a service proposal with a $1000 down payment covering 20 hours, then every 2 weeks I will bill based on my hours worked up to $3000 or 60 billed hours. For smaller garage projects I do a project total. For example $2000 total: $1000 down payment to begin, $500 due at submission, and $500 when you obtain your building permit.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to start with a phone call or in person meeting to learn more about your project, what you want it to accomplish and your timeline. After I will research your property by address to determine options and feasibility before I sent a service proposal. If we decide to move forward I will collect a down payment and perform a comprehensive site visit before beginning drawings. After about 15 days I will send you my progress, we will make design changes and move forward with engineering and developing construction documents, then we are ready to submit for a building permit so we can get to the fun stuff.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have worked as an architectural drafter for 8 years now. I studied B.I.M. and CAD technology at South Puget Sound Community College. I have worked as a drafter for a residential construction company, a custom home designer, a commercial casework manufacturer, and currently at an architectural firm. I have also worked in the field as a carpenters apprentice and have been interested in buildings my whole life.
