Latest reviews

  • Dormer Loft and Downstairs WC

    Nick has made this whole process a fantastic experience. He was patient whilst the got the funds for our build sorted, and always replied promptly to our queries. He is friendly and professional, and I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

  • Drawing Plans for Commercial Property

    Great service. Was able to measure up and complete the drawing quickly, and made a couple of required changes the solicitor wanted. Very professional service.

  • Two maisonettes to one house conversion

    We couldn't be more pleased with the work ADS did for us. Ours was a pretty small job - knocking a link between two maisonette flats. But previous advice from other parties had suggested it was going to be way more difficult and expensive than we had expected. We posted our job on myBuilder, ADS contacted us, as did others. We selected ADS, and are very happy with the results. From start to finish, Nick was friendly and engaging and earned our trust. Having listened to our requirements, he formulated a pragmatic solution, keeping the cost and complexity down, saving us thousands. His fee was very reasonable, and exactly as quoted, despite a couple of amendments required to the original plans. Thanks Nick.
