Welcome to Sheppard Building Design

Sheppard Building Design and Drafting Services opened for business in 1975. Our client list numbers in the thousands and over the years we have worked, and continue to give all of our clients above average service and awesome design.

We take on all types of New Residential Homes including Extensions and Alterations both large and small. The tab Changing Homes displays a wonderful array of renovated and updated homes over the years, while our expertise in delivering New Homes of many styles to our clients requirements can be gleaned from the New Homes tab. 

Our expertise also extends into Unit Development and the commercial area where all manner of work from Warehouses and Offices to Winery's and Restaurants, Schools and Day Care Centres have all been very successfully designed, documented and built. Units & Commercial work has its own tab to display a sample of our work.

These web pages are intended to show the range and variety of work we have done over the years. Our work is mostly a collaboration between us and our clients. Many of the features and ideas you will see are from the clients mind. We work hard to listen, to give you what you want and to make your dreams come true.  


Why consider Sheppard Building Design

We hope these web pages will convince you that we are the Building Designers you need. Our fee structure is moderate and in keeping with what is reasonable and required for the project. We will listen closely to your needs and work with you to deliver exactly what you want. If you are a litte unsure of what is the right solution for your needs, our long experience along with our design excellence will provide a rich storehouse for you to draw on.

3D models are standard. 

All our work is modelled in 3D as a matter of course. If our clients would like, we can easily provide a walk through. We can provide take home files so that everything that is seen on the computers in our office can be viewed in the privacy of your own home. Internal and external 3 dimensional views mean there is very little confusion or doubt about how your building is going to look when it is finished. Its great peace of mind.

Councils and Consultant's

Sheppard Building Design can be a one stop shop for your project. We can handle all the required details from the initial Planning Permissions through to the Building licence. We work directly with councils, but where it is approriate and cost effective we can use Private Building Surveyors. We have good relationships with a range of consultants that may be required to deliver you the best job at the best price. Our Engineers and Surveyors are routinely available whilst plumbing, electrical and other specialist consultants can be readily sourced. Energy Ratings are generally handled in house.  

Pro Bono Work

Over the years Sheppard Builidng Design & Drafting Services has provided Pro Bono Services for many worthwhile community organisations including Extensions and Alterations for Samaritan Befrienders in Subiaco and extensive works for the Buddhist Communities in WA. The work shown is for the Buddhist Society of WA and includes buildings at its Nollamara headquarters together with buildings at its Monasteries in Serpentine and Gidgigannup. Our Pro Bono work has its own tab, and we derive great pleasure from the work we have done.
