Elevation Drafting (formerly Syndal Drafting Services) was established in 2012 by qualified Land Surveyor and AutoCAD Certified Professional draftsman, Glenn McIntyre.
After completing Surveying qualifications at RMIT (Melbourne), Glenn gained a number of years’ experience working in Surveying companies around Melbourne, and a year in Perth, WA.
In 2012, seeing an opportunity for a skilled Survey Drafter to work for multiple companies without the restrictions of a “9-5 role”, he activated an old ABN, registered ‘Syndal Drafting Services’ (SDS), and started marketing.
Glenn gained his AutoCAD Certified Professional certification in 2013, reflecting the highest level of competence in the software, and allowing him to display the “AutoCAD Certified Professional” logo seen in the footer below.
SDS grew steadily, and we took on our first employees in 2017.
In 2018, the business re-branded as “Elevation Drafting”. The name has strong links to land surveying, with “elevation” defined as “the height of a certain point”.
Elevations are also a type of ‘side view’ of a property, tying our business name into construction and development too.
We’re now Australia’s leading Survey Drafting business, catering to professionals in Surveying, Land Development, Underground Service Location, Town Planning, Urban Design, Civil, Mapping, GIS, Building Services, Architecture, Real Estate, UAVs and any other profession where survey/measuring activities are needed.
