Drafting Excellence Award

Beach Haven Residence

Another new category introduced this year was the Drafting Excellence Award. The award aims to recognise an individual’s excellence in drafting, through the preparation of outstanding documentation for a design project.

Adrian Smithwick of Peter Jackson Design epitomised the criteria for this award, for his drafting skills in the Beach Haven Residence. The Judges unanimously voted him to win the inaugural Drafting Excellence Award.

A large project such as this could only come to fruition with the use of clear, accurate and concise documentation. Despite being complex in nature, the designed drawings have excellent details which, by their very design, can only take out the guess work for the builder, other tradespersons and, of course, the building inspector.

Some believe that ‘less is more’; but when it comes to drawings, there can be no 'less'. This design is testament to this belief, and Adrian’s skills surely resulted in a smoother construction phase with less downtime; the holy grail for builders and owners alike.

The builder and engineer both supported the entrant for his extremely comprehensive and concise detailing, which had eliminated any surprise on site…fitting testimony in itself.
