  1. New build

    1st Class service

  2. Plans for new design to front of house

    Mike has been really helpful from the very outset. His fees are very reasonable and the quality of his work has been excellent but what really stands out is his customer service. He was proactive in giving us updates and extremely quick and helpful during the actual building process when the odd issue cropped up. I would recommend using Mike to anyone.

  3. Two storey extension plans

    Mike was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and professional from the initial visit and throughout the entire project. Plans were drawn up and passed first time and he recommended several contractors for quotes (one of which we subsequently used and was very happy with). We had a few unforeseen complications at groundworks stage; Mike was brilliant, he found and liaised with an engineer who resolved this quickly. For first-time builders such as ourselves, Mike made the process transparent and explained everything in 'non-technical' speak and was always available to answer questions or offer advice. We were extremely satisfied with the service we received.

  5. Drawings for Planning Permission and Building Control application, St Leonards

    Mike prepared formal drawings and handled the initial Planning Application for a 10-bed HMO in St Leonards-on-Sea. He was helpful and courteous, and produced drawings and revisions to a professional standard.

  6. Design, planning and building regs drawings

    Mike was excellent to deal with from the first meeting. It was clear he knew what he was talking about straight away. He handled a challenging planning process very well and achieved permission against the odds. He always had time to talk things through in detail and came up with solutions. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mike and will certainly use him again when we have further building work.

  7. Full drawings for side extension

    Mike has been fantastic, he designed a two storey extension for us and came up with better ideas then we did. Everything was passed first time and he kept us informed throughout. The extension is still being built (2 years after the original drawings were completed) and he has been at the end of the phone throughout he has even attended site when I was unsure that the builders were carrying out the work correctly. Throughout the project Mike is the only one who has not let us down, he has been honest throughout and I trust him completely. Real value for money and I certainly would use him again and recommend others do.

  8. Prepare plans, apply for Planning Permission and Building Regulations

    The extension is now complete and the builder commented positively on their completeness and the technical detail provided. The plans were produced efficiently and incorporated our ideas as well as some good suggestions from Draft 2 Design. The application for planning permission and subsequent Building Regulations was well handled and went smoothly.
