“Drafting For Professionals, By Professionals”
Pro Draft Inc. is an innovative, high-production drafting house located in Maui Hawaii. We provide cutting-edge architectural drafting services for:
- Interior Designers
- Commercial Projects
Form & function balanced with space & light. Integrating new technologies with remarkably old green building techniques brings together a new world with old world style.
Precisely integrating annual sun angles into modern homes not only creates ideal winter and summer environments, but it also pushes the architectural envelope forward and back to its roots at the same time.
Bringing it all together. Integrating interior design in the architectural design process is ideal. There is so much that can be accomplished when these two processes work hand-in-hand.
Sometimes it’s the little things that really make it all come together, but sometimes it’s integrating those little things with the big things that make all the difference in the world.
Interior Design, just two little words on a page, but signifying an entire world unto itself. Layer upon layer of ever evolving styles and fashions from all over the world come together the worlds of interior design.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Pro Draft Inc. provides project management services for both residential and commercial projects in Maui County. While most in-house Pro Draft Inc. projects don’t require project management there are some circumstances in which these services are beneficial. The most common of which is larger commercial projects done by mainland architectural firms. In these cases having someone on-site familiar with local building codes and resources can be very beneficial. The second most common is larger residential projects for mainland customers.
The very first thing we do for new projects is what we call project assessment. I will ask them what’s the address of the property, or if it doesn’t have an address, what’s the tax map key number and we look it up. Then we find out what the zoning is and then we find out what the setbacks are and the allowable uses because this is a big deal. How many houses are you allowed to have on the property. Typically, properties allowed to have a main house, Ohana, or cottage as it’s known more commonly, but here in Hawaii we call them Ohanas. Ohanas are highly regulated in terms of their size, how big they can be, how much of a covered lanai can they have or a deck or these things, or the number of them that’s allowed on the property. We will do all of that assessment from the very first conversation.
Then we also try to get a very good idea about what the customer wants. We will get all of that information absolutely free so that we incorporate it into our proposals for them. Usually, we give them so much information they just think about it for a while and then they come back to us when they’ve made up their mind. We like to get information. If you’re a new customer, if you have a site plan of the property or survey or anything, we basically want a copy of it. If there are existing buildings on the property and you have plans for them, we want copies of those too. We really want to get as much as we can that’s available for any particular job. The more we get hold of, the less we have to do, the more the customer saves money.
We’ve literally done thousands of projects. We also do work all over the country, from Alaska to Florida, from New York to California. Sometimes, we will go to job sites on larger projects to do consulting, but for the most part, it’s all done electronically with emails and file transfers.
Other larger firms will come to us and say they need us to do the heavy lifting on projects. Sometimes, customers contact us directly.
We do all kinds of things from large resorts to small homes, tiny houses, and everything in between. We also do a lot of commercials. We’ve done everything from executive lounges at the Honolulu International Airport, aircraft hangers, stores, and shopping malls, buildings for commercial, all kinds of things.
