Feedback for Minesh Patel Architects

We needed planning permission and building reg plans to extend a bungalow with a new bedroom, new garage and convert existing garage to increase the size of the kitchen and bathroom.
I googled all the ‘my builder’, ’rated people’, trades persons etc and narrowed down the search to three services, finalising with Minesh Patel Architects.

His experience and proven capability in previous big developments and designs gave me confidence that he would be ideal for the project. I am not a builder or property developer, so I needed someone I could trust to get it right first time and who was very reasonably priced.
I was not disappointed.

From the initial meeting and discussion, through the assessing and planning stage, and right through to the building regs submission, Minesh proved to be friendly, approachable, flexible and helpful. Some amendments were required with the planners but he got on with this and made the changes without giving me any stress.
We did change our minds about certain aspects of the design, but Minish was patient and thoughtful, adapting and modifying plans to suit.

A very important part of having a good architect is listening, having clear written and verbal communication, and getting along together, and honestly the whole process was a breeze.

I have nothing negative to put in this review and would wholeheartedly recommend Minesh to anyone who needs a qualified architect.
