Looking for Architect and structural engineer for work in N Dallas, TX


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have developed some plans in X12 premier for an 1800 ft^2 garage / workshop (~30'x647') that is attached to my existing house via a Porte-cochère.

 

I have submitted it to the HOA, showing both the existing house and the additional building and it has been accepted.

 

I created a plan of the original house and my vision of the additional new construction (garage/workshop).

 

I haven't added the framing/electrical/plumbing yet, but would possibly like to use some of the 'perfect wall' designs that I saw Matt Risinger presents on his build show.

Of course need to weight this against cost.

 

Also, I need to be able to pull permits with the plans that I receive.  Want to get an official sign off from the person who perfects these plans.

 

The city does not require a licensed architect, but I would like to have one anyways.  

 

Generally people use post tension slab on grade in my area.  If the person I engage is not a structural engineer, I may need to enlist a second person to do the foundation design.

 

The design is 1.5 stories.

 

Thanks,

 

Greg Baty

The architect / engineer can work remote, but I am not sure if I need a physical engineering stamp.

 

Just need someone who is licensed to work in Texas.

 

I can do the leg work of delivering the plans to the city.  Supervising the construction / contractors.

      I am doing a remodel and have created a separate existing building file and am using it as an underlay to show where walls are being removed: 
      BUT, when I export the views to layout, they all default to the last view I export. Here I export the first floor:

      So far so good. Here are the settings:

      Then it all goes awry. This is what happens when I export the second floor:

      And now the third...

      This only happens with this one plan. Could using the plan reference be messing things up? Has anyone seen this before?

      I am looking for someone to draft a complete set of plans for my small 1 1/2 story house. I have Chief Architect Home Designer Pro and the plans are already drawn up. The only thing that needs a little help is the roof (11/12 pitch) with a dormer (6/12 pitch). I'll need elevation plans, floor plan, foundation plan, floor framing plan, roof framing plan, wall cross-section, electrical plans that I've already done. I can't attach the Chief Architect File because it's too big but these will give you an idea of the project. Could you quote me a price and timeline?

      I currently have a remodel to an existing home. I am a General Contractor. I need someone to take some PDF's and DWG's and turn them into an existing plan, plus add to it the proposed remodel. Needs to be ready for submittal to Kootenai County, ID for permitting. I can send you plans for review. I would like to reach a flat rate fee plus an hourly for revisions if necessary. I am working in CA X12 and would like them in that format for ease of transfer. Please give me your availability as I am looking for someone to start very soon. Thank you.

      Gentlemen,

      I am a professional model-maker and cnc machinist looking to build a new 40'x60' workshop on my property. I am well versed in SolidWorks and AutoCAD, but not Chief Architect. I am contemplating renting CA for a couple of months to complete the design of my new workshop and generate construction drawings, but before I pull the trigger on that, and spend a good deal of time learning the software, I would like to get quotes for someone else to complete the design work and generate prints. Please contact me offline for details and to bid the job.
