The principle purpose of the BDA is to be recognised as a leading professional design force in the building industry.
Building Designers Association NSW
The BDA consists of a dedicated group of professionals who prepare documentation for about 40% of all building work carried out in NSW. The Building Designers Association is a mature and active association which enjoys a high level of respect from the public, manufacturers and all levels of government.
The BDA is seen as the premier association of Building Designers and it jealously guards this reputation. Members are bound by a Code of Ethics and encouraged to operate at the highest professional level at all times. The Association encourages design excellence from its members and promotes the benefits of good building design to the public.
The BDA is active in the development of education and training standards relevant to the building design profession and is now recognised by governments and educational institutions as the leading professional body for building designers in NSW.
What is a Building Designer?
Of course, the simple answer is that Building Designers design buildings, but in fact there is much more to what has become the profession of building design.
The BDA estimates that 75-80% of residential work is currently designed by Building Designers.
Why use a Building Designer?
A Building Designer can assess the strengths and weaknesses of your building site and your existing home, in the case of an addition or renovation. Based on this information, they can then discuss with you how your required outcomes can best be achieved.
Selecting a Building Designer
The design is likely to be the most important part of the building project that you are about to embark on. Selecting the right designer is the key to achieving a successful building project.
