I have worked with the team at Granit on two projects now and highly recommend the team. Their designs have been well thought out, innovative and have taken into consideration our current and future needs, as well as the period architecture of the property. I would not hesitate to use them


Kennet Design did everything to get our house renervations ready to build (side return extension and loft conversion). This was from the initial survey of our property, consultation on our wants and likes to help input into the design, detailed designs, structural drawings, planning applications


We recently moved back into our house after a total refurbishment designed and managed by Granit Architects and we cannot recommend them highly enough. With no option to increase the footprint of the house, Granit's insightful and judicious design has transformed what felt like a small, dark


Carl was exceptional from start to end - he took a lot of time at each stage, first of all spending time listening to what we wanted and really listening to us as well as trying to give us a few options to consider. He gave us great detailed advice on how the planning permission process would


A superb architectural & design agency. We're absolutely delighted with our new built house.


We have worked with Guy and Cameron from GBS on several projects. There drawings have been detailed and easy to follow and they have been responsive if we have had any questions. This has lead to a smooth running of the projects on budget and in time. We look forward to working with them again.


The design was prepared exactly as I wished. The service was very good and helpful and the staff was very polite. All aspects of the project were handled with meticulous care.


Re-Draw helped me with my extension planning permission from initial survey to building control. I Highly recommended them.

ReDraw has been excellent right from the beginning, helpful with every aspect of the planning permission application. Highly recommended


Granit's deeply collaborative approach, willingness to listen to our ideas, and enhance them, made the process truly rewarding. To say we are delighted with their results is an understatement. They added exponential value to our home both emotionally and financially. Their talent and vision


We have worked with the team at Granit Architects on a wide range of projects over the last 10 years, on everything from individually tailored homes to luxury apartments and larger scale developments. Granit have been consistently excellent to deal with, bringing great flair to the design


My wife and I wanted to write review regarding our experience with Inspiration Architects in relation to our future home. We both agree that the service, understanding and responses exceeded our expectations greatly. When we received the final proposal/drawings/examples we know we had made


Qubed did a fantastic job in helping with us with major renovations on our house. We wanted a combination of traditional renovations in keeping with the house at the front, and a modern extension to our kitchen at the rear. Edyta understood the brief immediately and came up with some great


A very hardworking and professional team of GBS nurtured our project like their own. The professionalism and confidence demonstrated can't be found elsewhere. Trusted builders are very difficult to find and I have been very lucky in this regard. They have been very good about resolving any


I renovated a property with QUBED help. She was very helpful with layout and how to get the best storage possible from a very small space. It is now a light, open two bedroom property with lots of storage.


As already mentioned by previous reviewers this guy, Brendon, takes the job and doesn't deliver. I had a project that was very much time sensitive and I asked him if he could provide the required drawings on a quick turnaround, which he confirmed. It took months, and he rarely responded any


Having dealt with other architecture practices in the past, Block Architects offer a fantastic quality of service throughout the whole process. They designed my new home with the needs of my family at the heart of it, took me through the planning process, the building warrant process (something


Amazing projects undertaken with great understanding of what the client wants and a great attention to deadlines and customer satisfaction. Great communicator, would highly advise for any commercial building work right through to private individuals


Currently entering litigation for supplying incorrect drawings and calculations. The errors occurred because Brendon failed to ever visit the site. This has cost us nearly £20,000 which we will be seeking to recover. Totally unprofessional


We picked GBS Architectural after seeing the great job they had done on Loft conversion for a friend of ours. The service provided by them has been outstanding from start to finish. They worked regular hours, 8 am to 4 pm every working day throughout the whole 10-week project, sometimes putting


I am based in France and have several properties in London that I have renovated with Sharpeplan over the years. I cannot always get out to London but have developed a great relationship with Nigel and now trust him to complete the design of projects with the minimum of fuss and at the best


I have worked with Milbank Architects on a number of schemes now and I find them excellent to work with. They create some great looking properties as well as being able to produce details that work on site. A great choice, they've never let me down.


I would go as a far as saying GBS is absolutely the best selection in London for Architectural works. Professional and well experienced people. Highly recommendable. The expert advise given really helped with giving me innovative ideas for my planned loft conversion.


It's been great working with Saj and his enthusiasm to get the look and feel we wanted. We had major issues and hurdles to get over and Saj went the extra mile. Highly recommended and look forward to the finished results.


An excellent and easy to follow process which provides pragmatic and affordable advice. Highly recommended!!!


Would highly recommend OKS Construction. Have used them on a number of building projects over the years.


This is the first time I have contacted an architect to undertake work and I was slightly nervous as the project was a large refurbishment for a business unit. Philip came to the premises and was shown what was needed and duly produced the plans and drawings. Philip was charming and very


I hired this firm for a home extension project that I had to shelve when I was later made redundant, I paid them for all the work I had authorised them to do but after I called Bernard Humphrey-Gaskin to advise them to stop work, his wife Maria who isn't a Chartered Architect sent me sketches


Excellent service from start to finish. A friendly, professional company who listens to the customers needs. Would recommend.


GBS Architectural have Excellent service and Highly professional approach in their Work. They understood our ideas and were generous with their time and support. They are also very helpful to complete our project before time.


We converted a really run down falling down garage into a spectacular one bedroom annexe for our grown son with Roy's design. It's exactly what we needed. He got it through planning with no problems and as smoothly as we'd ever experienced (and we've done numerous projects previously).


Professional services and excellent job from start to end.


Excellent service from start to finish. Philip was very helpful and turned a piece of work around quickly and efficiently at a very reasonable price. Very helpful over the phone with questions and the ultimate solution. Highly recommend.


Do not use this company as they will take your money and not do the work as laid down on the quotation given. Will not respond to a phone call from you unless you use a different phone number unknown to this company. If you do manage to contact them they promise to do the plans by the weekend


Excellent and professional service. Would highly recommend!


I was really impressed with Freedom from the onset, they were so helpful and advised me (a Novice) on how it all would work. I would defiantly recommend as they made the whole thing so stress free and took care of everything.


Saj is a friendly bubbly guy who right from the start wants to do a great job for you, I warmed to him right away and his passion is quite evident from the off. He produced a good package of work for our kitchen extension and got through planning first time. He is professional but friendly


Saj offers a warm and professional services. The drawings are excellent. We appreciate the hand holding service provided by Saj. We cant wait for planning permission to come through and to get started.


A very talented architecture design & interior design company, full of very professional, attentive and friendly people! Would definitely highly recommend them to anyone in Leicester, Leicestershire


My wife and I were recommended to use abp Chartered Architects by a trusted friend to plan, design and project manage a single storey ground floor extension for me to use as a wheelchair bound paraplegic. We were delighted by the result. The plan was for a bedroom, shower room and utility room


We have used SI Designs twice now. Saj is very professional, stuck to time frames and did an excellent job. His services are very good value, he listened to our requirements and the drawings couldn’t be faulted. Ultimately SI designs got us the planning permissions we needed, so highly recommended.


Great designs and vision from a hard working man!


I was worried at first as my husband found the company online and we were going blind! We needed plans drawn up and steel calculations. I must say we are thrilled with the plans, service, timings and cost. We would highly recommend! Thank you,


Thank you Chris Froggatt of Architectural Building Design Services. We have just got planning permission for phase one of our site development. Excellent architectural designers as well as highly professional. Highly recommended for the very detailed and refined project that was rejected


I would like to thank Architectural Building Design Services for all of their hard work, ideas and inspiration and for being so approachable and easy to deal with. I would happily recommend them to anyone thinking of starting a building project.


I hired Architectural Building Design Services to draw up plans for our extension and to submit them to the council for approval. I was very happy with the service ABDS provided. They came to our home twice to make sure they knew what we had in mind and made some very useful suggestions which


We would like to thank you for all of your ideas and solutions that you came up with in planning our extension of our family home, which we desperately needed for our growing family. Your professional and friendly approach made you really stand out.


We would like to express our appreciation for the speedy service given to us by Architectural Building Design Services for designing and obtaining all the relevant approvals for our new home. You took away all the difficulty in dealing with the Local Authority and you also put us in touch


Having no previous building experience we searched the internet for an architectural designer and after seeing three we decided to engage the services of Architectural Building Design Services. They have been very easy to work with and straightforward in their approach. The drawings which they
