Our Commitment

By way of commitment to the local area where possible all equipment and consumables are purchased locally. In this manner our belief to support local will reciprocate with future work.

As a commitment to our clients and employees February 1999 marked an important milestone in the growth of TD&D. On this date settlement was made on our own office premises at 25 Percy Street, Mount Gambier. The offices now provide excellent work areas, additional office space for associates in peak demands, training areas and room for future expansion.
It is also a visible example that we intend to provide long-term client service.

Steve Scotland Total Design and Draft

Steve Scotland - director, owner

In my work life it has always been rewarding to work with people, to extract their ideas and turn them into plans ready for reality.

To work with production teams on process problems and see their faces when they realise that they actually know the solutions in the first instance is priceless.

My interests away from work are many and varied with a keen interest in classic vehicles and in particular those produced in the 1960s. Not sure why this is but maybe it is the design, shape or curves that catch my eye. Curiously the same features are high on the list when it comes to working with CAD.

In addition to this there is always gardening, cooking, fishing, travelling and spending time with the family. It’s rewarding to watch the grandchildren soak up information and learn new things when we spend time together.

With the software available today it is an exciting time for design.
