Most builds require drawings and development applications made to your local council. Milliken Builders is happy for you to choose your own draftsperson or architect or you can use our recommended draftsman.
Our preferred draftsman is
Allan Besednjak of ALS Drafting
A little bit about Allan Besednjak
Allan grew up in the Illawarra, completed a carpentry apprenticeship and worked for one builder on many commercial and residential projects throughout the Illawarra, and some in Sydney. Allan currently lives in the Illawarra region and his two kids attend their local school. Allan worked for over 17 years as a carpenter before retraining as a draftsman. He worked closely with South Coast Drafting for 1.5 years before establishing ALS Drafting.
What Allan Besednjak has to offer
Allan’s experience in the building industry has given him a practical knowledge of building standards and processes that many drafting people will not have. Allan’s insight into building procedures is invaluable when putting your ideas into drawings.
In addition to this, Allan works closely with us during the early stages of his drawings. We often organise joint meetings on site with all three parties (ie builder, draftsperson and client) to facilitate ideas and communication. This makes the design process more efficient, helps minimise delays and gets you the best possible outcome.
Allan specialises in extensions, renovations, pergolas, decks etc. He provides concept design drawings but can also assist with council submissions (DA) and construction certificates.
After an initial free consultation, Allan will give you a quotation outlining his services and costs so you know exactly what to expect.
What Allan Besednjak has to say
“I’m not an Architect or building designer. I work with builders and clients to come up with designs that owners are happy with. I use Revit 3d software that gives a very good idea on how the finished product will look.”
I always ask for people’s budgets. If I feel their budget won’t be enough to do what they want I will tell them even if I don’t get a job from our meeting. If I think their ideas will be close to their budget I will tell them. I will try to get a ball park figure from Troy in the early stages of designing and give the client the option to stop there to avoid paying for a service they won’t use. Or we can change the direction of the design to better suit their budget.”
