Any building is unique, a place like no other.
At HG Design, we encourage our clients to be active participants in the design of their buildings. We listen to your thoughts, priorities, and dreams, and collaborate in the design of a meaningful space for you and your family or your business.
Whether your dream is a new build, an addition or total remodel; residential, commercial or industrial; big or small; brick or timber, we offer a range of services to make your project a reality.
We assist architects with converting their hand sketches to digital CAD files.
We measure and redraw existing structures where plans have been lost and facilitate retrospective plan approvals with local authorities where compliance is required as part of the selling process. Whether you are the buyer, seller or estate agent, we will ensure that approved plans form part of the transaction.
We appreciate that confidentiality is essential in many business and personal projects, and we honour the trust placed in us by clients.
We can take your project from inception to close out. As part of our project management service we can assist with some or all of the following:
Complete construction documentation and proceed to call for tenders.
Obtain the client’s authority to prepare documents for procuring offers for the execution of the works.
Obtain offers for the execution of the works.

When the contractor’s obligations with respect to the building contract have been fulfilled, the architectural professional shall issue the certificates related to contract completion.

Rendering or image synthesis is the process of generating a photorealistic or non-photorealistic image from a 2D or 3D model (or models in what collectively could be called a scene file) by means of computer programs. The term “rendering” may be by analogy with an “artist’s rendering” of a scene.
It was once a slow and tedious process. With HG Design we can render your building to photo realistic quality, either as stills or videos. It allows us to visualize CAD models with real-life environments and striking artistic flair.
walk through before we break ground
HG Design exclusively uses ARCHICAD software. What does this mean for you, the client? ARCHICAD is a BIM (Building Information Modelling) product which means we do not simply draw your house, we model each detail in a 3D environment. This means you can see and interact with your project (and walk through it), long before we break ground. As standard with any project, you will have access to the BIMx file.
The award-winning, free BIMx app enables clients and other stakeholders to discover and fully understand the architect’s design proposals using mobile devices – such as tablets or smart phones. The interactive 3D model — hyperlinked with 2D documentation layouts – can be explored using familiar, gamelike navigation and gestures. Construction professionals can use BIMx for on-site coordination, markups and instant messaging with the design teams.
BIMx Web Viewer works with all common Internet browsers and lets you access the full content of a BIMx Hyper-model without having to install any application or plug-in. Hyper-models can be shared with anybody given a link or integrated on the architect’s own website.
Experience BIMx for yourself:
We thrive when coming up with
innovative ideas but also understand
that a smart concept should be
supported by measurable results.
