Our Services


MacDougall Design Group provides a variety of design and construction documentation services. We apply our architectural knowledge and past experience to meet the design needs of new or existing homes.


If a project requires a development and/or building permit, we also liaise with the planning and building authorities throughout the permit process to ensure your project receives the necessary reviews and approvals from City authorities.


Once the permits are obtained, construction can begin. We provide the builder with the necessary drawings and documentation to reference throughout the construction phase. Further, MDG is available throughout construction to help resolve any issues that might arise.


The following list includes the project types we have designed and had built:


Design for new homes – ‘Designing for place’—this is a key principle for a successful building outcome. Having designed and developed our own projects, we have a solid understanding of the opportunities that one site presents over another and how the site choice can affect the overall design, costs, and schedule for a future home. We can help homeowners and realtors understand some of the implications site choice might have on a new build or adding on to an existing home. Our projects have included:

  • Single family homes
  • Semi-attached homes
  • Small multi-unit buildings

Renovations & additions – We can provide the design guidance that will optimize and enhance your existing spaces, bringing quality and lasting value to your day-to-day lives. Projects we have undertaken and have seen built included:

  • Modernizing bungalows
  • Secondary suites, garages, and decks
  • Floor plan reconfigurations – looking at the entire home or specific areas within the home
  • Exterior design – modernizing old facades as they relate to interior spaces


Site planning + analysis - Our design planning includes determining allowable building area, zoning/by-law analysis, site layout for new and existing homes, and site studies for the development of homes on the market.


We look forward to hearing from you as to how we can help meet your home design needs. Contact us today.

Expand Upon "You"
