About

LHC Drafting is a privately owned and operated Canberra business. Founded by Principal Lachlan Campbell and formalised in 2010, LHC Drafting officers professional and experienced design and drafting services.

Lachlan has had success in the building and construction industry since 1998 where he has worked as a professional architectural draftsperson for a local architecture firm.  Lachlan has built up and maintains an extensive body of knowledge and experience across a broad spectrum of construction-related projects.

The difference with LHC’s approach to service is we ensure clients are fully informed of the process including anticipated timeframes and expected costs.

LHC encourages clients to be actively involved in the design process with LHC taking the time to fully understand project requirements and constraints. Having worked for a professional architecture firm Lachlan has gained industry knowledge and creative influences which enable him to shape the clients ideas to a fit-for-purpose design solution.

With the use of 2D and 3D CAD (Computer Aided Drafting) software LHC provides clients with drawings, renderings and even artist impression fly-through videos. This allows clients to see their project in colour and in a level of detail which assists the client to fully understand what the finished project will look like long before the first hole is dug.

Lachlan’s credentials and vision puts LHC Drafting in the right position to offer clients proficient service at a competitive price.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

We believe a home should be an expression of its owner. Attention to detail, creativity and innovation bring about architectural interest and individuality. Our designs focus on making effective use of spaces, maximising internal storage and energy efficiency.

The heart of the home, the Kitchen, needs to be functional in its layout and flow appropriately between living areas. The home design needs to have aesthetic appeal, be practical and fit the needs of the owner while still remaining within budget.

We understand that whether you’re building, renovating or extending a property it is a serious financial investment. Appreciating this we strive to work with you to incorporate well thought-out designs into projects to ensure it stands the test of time.

In addition, we feel any building should be cost effective in its design. Where appropriate it should be financially-economical to construct and time-efficient to maintain.
