New Year Blog

Posted by Helen Hardcastle on Friday, January 4, 2013
At the start of 2013 I have decided it is about time I began a blog.

Over the eighteen months I have been in business, one thing which has been quite tricky is knowing which category to put my business in. When advertising in business indexes, where should I put HH CAD Plans? The truth is that the service I am providing does not fit easily into any one category.
  • Am I a surveyor? Well, yes; I carry out measured building surveys.
  • Am I a draughtsman. Wikipedia defines Computer Aided Drafting as the process of creating a technical drawing with the use of computer software. So, yes again.
  • Am I a CAD technician? Yes, I have been trained in AutoCAD, but my experience is limited to using CAD for drawing plans.
  • Am I an architect? No, I have not studied architecture, but what I do is one of the skills of an architectural technician.
So, the conclusion I have reached is that my work falls into all of the above categories to a certain extent but none of them exactly fit what I do.
