Who are we?

Initially established in 1987 as Mission Beach Drafting in Far North Queensland we are a family owned practice led by founder Stephen Collins. Stephen began his career in building and construction as an apprentice carpenter with a home/commercial builder where he developed an extensive knowledge of building practices and a flair for innovative design.

On completion of his trade Stephen completed a Diploma of Building Design and worked freelancing for small and large construction firms, developing his knowledge of building projects while increasing his proficiency in planning, estimating and construction management.

Stephen has worked internationally from small housing projects to large construction projects and uses the latest AutoCAD and Revit software for design and construction drawings.

Stephen is forward thinking in sustainable development and has a wealth of knowledge in best practice design, building and construction developed over the past 35 years.

Stephen and his team will design to suit your specific needs.
