Welcome To AJB Home Design

My name is Alan Bisson and I am a home designer in the Greater Victoria area. I have been supplying quality architectural blueprints for custom homes, multi-unit residential, additions and renovations for over 20  years. My plans are used for construction by builders, engineers and other professions/trades as well as used for building permit application and other municipal applications. I enjoy a positive working relationship with all municipalities as they are familiar with my plans and I’m familiar with their procedures, requirements and bylaws. On many occasions I have acted as my client’s agent for dealing with the municipality on their behalf.

I am happy to say that my son, Taylor Simpson-Bisson, has been working with me for several years now. We are now AJB Home Design. He brought new blood, energy and ideas to the company and we work well together. Taylor has completed several courses in a design school specializing in drafting plans, using architectural software, space planning and extensive building code knowledge. He also spent several years working in many different trades. He is now an integral part of the company and an architectural designer in his own right.

Getting started is as easy as calling to book an appointment for us to meet for a free consultation on your project. At this time we will advise you on some of the unknowns you should be made aware of, what other documentation you may need and show you samples of work while explaining what services we supply and how we work. We would then e-mail you a detailed, written quote based on your project.  I am sure we can work together in a variety of ways to help you reach your goals.

Feel free to look around our website. The resources section has a lot of valuable information for both the home owner and the builder that may be useful to you. We are constantly adding new content and updates to the website so feel free to browse and come back!

If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to e-mail at or call us at:

We look forward to speaking with you. Thank you.

Why Do You Need Blueprints?

Each project is unique. Because of this, all projects require a set of drawings that are tailored to that project. The group of drawings we create and supply are commonly known as “Blueprints”. The blueprints are the heart of the project. They are important because they are the bridge between your ideas and all the groups of people and trades that will be involved in the budgeting, Municipal approval, construction and completion of your project.

Why Do You Need a Building Permit?

The old days of flying under the municipal radar are over and the old reasons for not getting a building permit have now been completely over shadowed by the negative repercussions if one is not obtained. You may think you will save money by not getting the proper permits, however, there is a big risk of potentially losing a considerable amount money by neglecting this important step.
