Broere Design & Drafting was founded in 2007 by Mark Broere to provide Parry Sound and surrounding cottage country with locally designed and drawn building plans. Seeing the need for such a service while working as a quantity surveyor, Mark incorporates builder’s specific preferences into his designs. His experience with pricing materials reflects in his designs – using simple solutions to minimize unnecessary costs. Mark is also familiar with many different products available on the market which can be incorporated into his plans – such as below grade and foundation products, dimensional and engineered lumber and trusses, windows and doors, interior finishes, and siding and roofing products.
Mark began his interest in construction and architecture in high school, focusing his attention on design techniques. Once enrolled in the Construction Engineering – Architecture course at Niagara College, Mark learned engineering principles and construction practises. Further, he developed skills in related fields of the construction industry.
After graduating in 2007, Mark started his employment as an estimator at Rona Parry Sound. Mark has since gained additional experience working with McNabb Building Centre in Parry Sound and Muskoka Lumber in Port Carling. With this diverse exposure to varying building styles and budget constraints, he can meet the needs of any local or cottage bound client.
Mark noticed how many building plans were drawn hundreds of kilometres away, where site knowledge and desired design features were sometimes lacking. This, coupled with an interest in custom construction rather than the “cookie-cutter” practise, has been the driving force behind Broere Design & Drafting.
Mark insists a good knowledge of local builders and their preference in building techniques and materials can significantly assist in a smooth construction process. With his experience with local lumber yards, Mark has helped clients by providing materials lists and technical advice, and has connected clients with local trades.
