Our History

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 incorporated builder’s specific preferences into his designs. Experience with pricing materials reflects in Broere Design & Drafting’s designs – using simple solutions to minimize unnecessary costs. Mark is also familiar with a variety of products available on the market which can be incorporated into his plans. Examples include below grade and foundation products, dimensional and engineered lumber and trusses, insulation, 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 practices. 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. Additional industry experience was gained while 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, Mark 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. Since relocating to Toronto, Mark can now deal locally with cottage-bound clientele while using his familiarity of the landscape to overcome unique challenges. This, coupled with an interest in custom construction rather than the “cookie-cutter” practice, 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.

Our Timing

At Broere Design & Drafting, we know how time management is essential to making your dreams a reality. Focused on quickly addressing design goals, your project may only be days or weeks from breaking ground. Realizing that the building season always seems to arrive too early, a quick turnaround time is essential at Broere Design & Drafting.

Broere Design & Drafting can generate custom simpler plans like garages, workshops, garages, bunkies, cabins, porches and decks often with a few days notice. For larger projects like full homes or cottages, extensive additions or renovations, please allow 1-2 weeks time for preliminary drawings and up to another week to finalize the plans after preliminary approval is given.

Broere Design & Drafting can even take care of some engineering services for you with no delay, such as slab-on-grade foundations (larger than 592 sq. ft.), timber, steel, or LVL stamps, point load calculations, and more. This ability to generate custom engineering reports as needed – on the spot – eliminates delays waiting for an engineer’s traditional busy scheduling, and ensures the architectural drawings fully reflect the structural requirements at the time of permit submission.

Our Commitment

By choosing Broere Design & Drafting for your next construction project, we guarantee your satisfaction.
