Small building renovation Architecture
John was extremely friendly, helpful and understanding of my situation when he visited. He made suggestions to contact council to see if previous building warrant submission could be amended to save me money (after dealing with a previous architect who didn’t finish their job). Unfortunately this took some time and after trying to chase up the council and John the last I heard from him was on 5 April 2018. I posted the job on 24 September 2017. I have tried to contact him through this website, email, text and phone and he now does not reply. Very disappointed as he seemed so genuine. Unfortunately I’m now 10 months behind and have to look for someone else to do the required drawings as they were never completed.

Kitchen "knock through" Conversions - General
We instructed John with a view to obtaining a building warrant for a kitchen knock through. We hadn't done this sort of thing before and didn't really know where to begin. John was great. He explained the process to us, prepared the relevant plans, submitted the application on our behalf and then instructed an engineer for us. Throughout the process John kept it touch to let us know what was happening and what we should expect. He was always easy to reach and happy to give advice. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

wall removal Architecture
I hired John for my proposed kitchen alterations . Involving removal of supporting wall . Window removal to be replaced with French doors.
From the start both me and my wife knew we made the right choice in John . He had so much experience through his previous employment with the council . He just made what seemed like a daunting project so easy . He was full of great ideas we would suggest something and he would give us a better way to do it . An associate of John's completed and submitted our drawing to the council for approving .
I would highly recommend John , he is both friendly and knowledgeable. Even now he still sends text to see if everything is ok regarding completion certificates we required...
If I have any need for planning assistance in the future I will use John

John Hynd was very approachable and led us through the whole warrant procedure with ease. John is very knowledgeable, respectful and patient. His drawings were of a very high standard and the turnaround for the drawings - really quick. John is very good with his part of the job.
The involvement of structural engineers can slow the process down but this is because they are exceedingly busy. We had a timescale, which John was very patient with.
We now have a lovely open plan lounge and walkin wardrobe in the bedroom. Thanks to John Hynd. (We hope we can work with you again). We shall be the patient ones this time!

Very good communications from John Hynd throughout the process, He is a very knowledgeable professional and I would recommend using him for planning applications.
One aspect I was let down in ( not JCH Design's fault) was the completely unreliable builder he recommended that I use, the builder put his price up by 1400 pounds two days before the work was due to start and then FAILED to attend the build leaving me to find another builder.

I would have no hesitation in hiring John and recommending his services. Having posted this job at mid April within a week John had plans prepared and submitted to the Council. Last week the Council came seeking further information and clarification and by Thursday John had met with them and our building warrant was issued. Excellent customer service.

late completion building warrant Architecture
John could not have been more helpful, he even visited my home at the weekend to fit in with my work commitments. He really did make a daunting process very simple and stress free. He did all the drawings and filled in all the forms for me, all I had to was sign the application and post it. The local authority visited my property within a week and granted the late completion certificate there and then. I would not hesitate to use his services again, highly recommended.

Building Warrant for lowering window Architecture
John was a pleasure to do business with. An excellent communicator John is very experienced and practical. From initial visit to having my Building Warrant granted was 8 days, which would not have been possible without the flexibility John takes in his willingness to help clients out. The fee John charged was very reasonable and was exceptional value for money.
Not only would I use John again but I would happily recommend his services to others.

Drawing for building warrant for removal of wall Architecture
I first spoke to John on the telephone and he was very prompt coming out to my property. He gave us some great advice going through every aspect of the building warrant. The council required further information regarding the application and John was very prompt getting the information to them. After the building work was carried out I further problems with the council. I phoned John for advice and he returned my call extremely quickly and advised me how to deal with the situation. John has been great to deal with all through this planning and building process. I would definitely recommend him.

Drawing for removing load bearing wall Architecture
John (or Ian) provided the drawings that were the basis for the application along with completing the forms.
He also arranged an engineer at an additional fee as I had a load bearing element to consider.
Total was around £300 plus fee to council which I think was fair enough for getting the application through. It is now fully signed off.

I couldn't have asked for better. My building application was rejected with a number of points. I posted the job late on Tuesday, the measurements were made on Wednesday evening, and the full (eventually passing) application with drawings and notes were hand delivered to the office on Friday morning. Glasgow council seem to be struggling with their work load just now, but he kept in contact with me and the council until the further concerns were resolved and the application was approved.

Knock through wall Architecture
Iain was an absolute professional throughout. From measuring to writing up the plans, he walked me through the steps of gaining an approval from the council. He constantly called for updates and even called on his contacts at the council to get information and speed up the process. Any amendments to the plans that had to be done he did quickly and efficiently and submitted on my behalf. I would recommend Iain as he is a joy to work with and will keep you updated on progress throughout. He will also take the time, to listen to any questions you may have, and will try to resolve if he can.

Garage conversion Architecture
From posting the job Mr Hynd contacted me promptly clearly advising what he could offer and timescales involved. Once hired he came to our house and measured up and gave advice on what could be done and what couldn't helping to come up with a final design for the project. After this, Mr Hynd applied for the building warrant on our behalf and kept us up to date throughout the process and very quickly and without any issue obtained the building warrant for us. He even contacted us afterwards to ensure we were happ with service and ensured we didn't need anything else. I had never met Mr Hynd prior to this but would recommend him fully for any job! Excellent service. Thanks!

Ian was a great help in getting our building warrant for the work undertaken on our house. He came round, measured up, completed the drawings and submitted them to the council. Within a few weeks we had our building warrant. His communication was excellent, always keeping us up to date so we could get our builder ready to go. I found him very professional to deal with, would certainly deal with him again and have already passed his name onto my neighbours. I would highly recommend Ian (John Hynd) for help in building warrant submissions.

Utility room, kitchen conversion Architecture
Drawings inaccurate and same repeated advice, round and round in circles with no end state. Worst money ever paid £100 for words. Could not recommend builders a And hire builders for the job. With inaccurate drawings given. Still awaiting some sort of basic plans. Faith in the building trade in question again?

J C H Design's reply:
Mrs Whyte was advised of the construction problems with the conversion of the utility room and making it comply with building regulations. I suggested she consider demolishing it and rebuilding a larger extension which would work easier with the existing house.
No response has yet been received from her
However Mr Whyte has contacted me to inform me that due to other circumstances the works will not be going ahead
