I am planing on doing a full 2 floor plus basement renovation of a duplex. I am planning on having the whole interior removed and was wondering which type of people, i.e. structural engineer, architect etc. are needed to complete the drawings/blueprint of all 3 floor plans? Is a designer needed for this step?
You can utilize the services of either an Architect or an Architectural Technologist for your drawings. Depending on how radically you are modifying the structure, either one may retain the services of a Structural Engineer to provide a report on a specific aspect of the build.
I hope this helps.
Best of luck with your project.

if you are updating your home and you are not doing any structural changes, you need a Interior designer's assistance.
If you are considering removing walls or doing any structural changes, you will require an engineer to sign off on these. An architectural technologist can help you with this.
Any changes to the exterior elevation, can also be completed by a designer or tech.
I hope this was of help to you; I wasn't sure what you meant by "having the whole interior removed "
This is a huge undertaking. I applaud your courage trying to do it all yourself. Before you start hiring people to help you, I recommend you talk to a Design Builder. They can provide all the expert advice and the experts to do the work.
