We are a registered and experienced design & build company. We formed a partnership to create a design arm of the building company that can offer: stand alone plans, design & build or build only packages for our clients.
Jason Eldred, who was then trading as ECL was hired to complete and submit the plans for a kitchen extension. I was initially satisfied with Jason when he visited the house to measure up and take instructions etc... However I began go have my doubts about him when he proved very difficult to contact by either phone or e-mail and then ceased trading as ECL and began trading as M2DP, M2Construct and M2 Design. I repeatedly had to ask Jason to amend his drawings as the fundamental measurements and positioning of the extension was incorrect. Jason disagreed with our requested measurements because he maintained that we would not get planning permission for an extension of 5m. We asked Jason to submit the plans and we received planning permission. However we also paid for full size hard copies of plans which Jason has not supplied despite numerous phone calls and e-mails - all of which he failed to respond to. We had originally intended to use Jason Eldred's ECL company for the physical build of the extension but as he has proved to be completely unreliable he can consider himself saved. A few open source checks on his
Director and Companies House profiles suggest financial difficulties. If you are considering using Jason Eldred, in whatever guise he is trading in at the time, I would proceed with extreme caution.

Quotation for services. (Architectural Services)
In 1988, my brother and I began working for our father building extensions, loft conversions and carryout refurbishments.
My brother trained as a bricklayer and carpenter for a number of years and gained valuable experience on building sites for new houses, flats etc. He returned to the family business to apply his trade.
In 1990, I studied a part time HND building course and applied my new found skills to producing architectural plans and designs for our clients. I worked on site for around 8 years working on all areas of construction to eventually be given the job of project manager. I would oversee and run up to 6-7 building projects at a time. In 2001 I diversified and trained to be a fire sprinkler designer, using sprinklers in domestic properties to overcome fire regulation issues. E.G open plan gound floor for loft conversions rather than have the escape route corridor.
In 2001, when my father retired I teamed up with my brother once again to carry out all aspects of domestic type building projects large and small.
2011 formed partnership to create architectural services for a design and build company.
