About

Saltwater Design & Building Management, originally known as Saltwater Design & Drafting was established in 2009 by Darren Powell. With repeat clients and an influx of projects this has now led to Darren’s good friend and colleague, Scott Pizzey to join in 2016.

Our goal is to bring our extensive knowledge together and offer quality documentation at a reasonable price. Over the years both Darren and Scott have noticed a short coming in architectural firms providing under experienced staff at extravagant prices and underperforming documentation. We provide quality, experience, and success!
