Father of our growing family and a leader in the architectural field with over 35 years of experience. Daryl founded Harvan Design in 1999 and has successfully grown that business for 20 years. He acquired Ace Drafting in 2018 and is responsible for supervision of all work completed in the office and has achieved much in his life, but his proudest accomplishments are his marriage to his wife Deanna of 28 years and his three beautiful daughters. An avid fitness and sports fanatic, Daryl brings the same intensity to his sporting & spiritual life as to his family and work.
An unabashed follower of Jesus, Daryl spends as much of the little free time he has working in his local church, volunteering as a Chaplain at his local football/cricket club, playing competitive cricket and following the mighty Tigers (current premiers again in case you didn’t know) in the AFL.
A self-confessed chocoholic, don’t even think of walking past him with any Cadbury chocolate. You might just lose a finger.

Andrew has been with Ace Drafting for over 7 years and brings 11 years of building design experience with him. A dedicated family man he is currently father to 4 children. Please pray for him. Andrew is an avid family man who embraces all that is required of a father & a husband. He does like to catch the odd movie when there is time between changing nappies. Unfortunately Andrew is a Collingwood supporter and lives in a perpetual state of disappointment. If you happen to be talking to him please try to cheer him up.
In every office someone has to keep the boys in line. In our office that’s Deanna. Responsible for accounts and keeping the business afloat, Deanna cares deeply about making sure things are running smoothly. Her friendly face & outgoing phone manner make her the ideal person to resolve any account issues in a prompt & efficient manner.
Deanna loves a laugh but never at someone else’s expense. She passionately cares about her family & friends and can be trusted to go the extra mile very time. Deanna has been with Ace Drafting since Daryl acquired the business in 2018 and brings common sense with her every day to work. Her weakness…chocolate bullets (Aldi brand please).
Lisa joined the Ace Drafting Team in 2019 after many years’ experience in Administration & Personal Assistant roles within Education & Public organisations.

Her daughter keeps her active as a ‘Calisthenics Mum’ & she serves on the State Youth Games Committee as well.
We love having Lisa on board & she is enjoying the learning curve of working in the building design industry.
