The Greenhouse Feature Business of the Month: LMD Design

For our first feature business piece of 2018, we sat down with Luke Drakes of LMD Design to get some insights into his business.

Can you tell me about yourself and LMD Design?

After a successful career working at one of Melbourne’s top building design & drafting businesses for 6 years I always in the fore front of my mind that I would run my own Design & Drafting business.

I then set up a job working full time at a large civil construction company to save money for my goal of opening my Architectural Design business, which I originally thought would take around 2 years. While doing this I was working part time from home establish the business and a client base. And just after12 months I established LMD Design & Drafting at the end of 2012 at the age of 27. 

Combining my knowledge of design with a background in building and project administration, I/LMD Design offers a rare insight into the architectural process, and has earned a reputation for clear client communication. 

By collaborating with relevant consultants, we guarantee that our clients receive a unique level of support. We are there from the initial site inspection, through the planning stages, permit application process all the way to construction.
