  3. Kitchen extension, addition bedroom and bathroom, additional garage, complete internal renovation to all rooms

    The work was completed with an attention to detail and achieved a high quality finish; delivered on time and within the agreed budget. Since parts of the building and the internal renovation work were complicated, good coordination and communication between all the parties was required and this was excellently organised by Caldotec who also gave fast replies for our questions. The advise and assistance we received from Caldotec was experienced, impartial and always given in a friendly manner.

  7. Home Interior Reconfiguration. Modernisation and Single Storey Extension

    Caldotec worked with us as our trusted advisor through design, planning and project managing the works at our property over an eight month period. They took our thoughts for the changes to the existing interior and the extension and gave us some real innovative options which have given us a property that we adore. They handled all aspects of the planning which was seamless and more importantly for us painless. The project management was excellent with detailed project planning, agreed and met timescales and regular site meetings for us to attend and give input. The whole experience was professional and enjoyable and it continues as they have made several follow up calls to ensure we are still happy with the completed works.

    From start to finish the service given by Caldotec was great. We were kept fully informed of what was happening at each of the phases but they took on all of the effort of getting the required building permissions. Russell and Joao, spent a lot of time with us and it is clear that they really understood what we wanted and needed.

  10. Rear extension

    Russell was very friendly and helpful. He listened to what we wanted and we were very happy with his design. We had to change the design after getting quotes for the work and Russell was very accommodating with this. A little more advice about the potential cost of different designs from the outset would have helped us to arrive at the best decision from the start.

  13. Submission of pre planning application

    Advice was sought for the conversion of a balcony from existing railings to a glass/ steel structure. Liz Galloway visited the property at very short notice; proposed that a pre planning application would be prudent, prior to going ahead with full planning permission. The application was speedily, professionally and very courteously put together at a very reasonable cost. Liz Galloway was always available for phone conversations, follow up emails and advice. She clearly. Has a sound and knowledgeable relationship with Planning officials, and is very familiar with the local environment. The pre planning was successful, and I have no hesitation in recommending Caldotec wholeheartedly. Extremely competent professionals, and a pleasure to deal with.

  16. To compile Building Regulations drawings and documents for submission of Building Regulations Application for two new build houses.

    ‘Caldotec’ provided professional drawings and plans that allowed me to move forward with the build process of my latest project. Despite some delays, they responded to my requirements and changes in the design as quickly as they could. I would happily work with them again in the future as we now have a good understanding of each other's demands.

  19. Numerous renovation projects at The Lamb at Angmering. Grade 2 Listed, built 1775.

    We have had numerous projects to renovate The Lamb at Angmering, which was in a dreadful condition when purchased from Punch Taverns in September 2011. Liz Galloway has been a godsend to us. We have had renovation projects on the ground, first and second floors, leading to at least 8 applications to renovate. The last, to build onto our outside courtyard at the rear of our property which she successfully negotiated for us in August of this year. The build starts October end 2015. Her knowledge, her negotiating skills and her advice have all been outstanding and we have come to trust her judgement on all of the projects we have undertaken. A first class organisation and staff who know all of the minefields before you tread on them. Highly recommended..

    The team at Caldotec listened to what we wanted and delivered what we needed, when we needed it. On several occasions during this difficult project I felt that they went out of their way to help us meet deadlines and overcome difficult planning issues. They took a lot of the worry out of the project for us which was very much appreciated as we were new to building projects which required architects and planning. There were many times when we were very grateful we had been recommended Caldotec and I would strongly recommend them to anyone embarking on a redevelopment project. A huge thank you to Liz and the team.

  36. Provide building regulations application

    The company may be proficient in architectural design, but failed with their attempts to provide building regulations and fell short of their professed levels of professional service. First set of notes lacked details and accuracy required to meet building regulations
    Client in Pulborough, 19 April 2013
    Response from Caldotec Ltd:
    We are sincerely sorry that, on this rare occasion, we do not seem to have met our client’s expectations. Our remit was to obtain Building Regulations Approval for converting a garage, and removal of an internal wall. Building Regulations Approval was obtained without any queries raised. Since the client was doing the work himself, he did require further detailed information, which we did provide. Our client did commence the work before approval was obtained, which we usually do not recommend. The internal work required an early visit from our structural engineer who discovered that previous structural work required rectification. He provided his recommendations for this work, as well as calculations for the new work. We have reviewed this case and realise that the services could have been carried out quicker in view of the clients desire to commence work quickly. We have implemented internal processes which should enable a special quick response to individual clients who have tight time limits on their work. This will include helping the clients to understand implications of starting work before full approvals are in place.

    Liz and her team have been fantastic from the start. They returned phone calls promptly and enthusiastically, and this was consistent throughout, even now that the project has neared completion and their role is complete; they had a wealth of business contacts who they were able to call upon to meet all our needs on the design and build project. They offered solutions that we hadn't considered (for instance wall cladding in the wet room which looks fantastic and is low maintenance for cleaning) and liaised with all the relevant bodies to ensure we met all the requirements of the disabled facilities grant which was being put towards the cost of the work. The team at Caldotec Ltd certainly went above and beyond for our family on this project, it was adaptations to meet the needs of our disabled son and to ease the burden on our backs also. They undertook their own fundraising for us and highlighted our project amongst their business contacts and local community, which went a long to helping us achieve all the items we wanted to include in the project.
