    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.

    JCH DESIGN, Did all I asked of them. The plans were drawn up and submitted in a timely fashion.
    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 can't recommend John enough, he did a fantastic job on the drawings for the removal of a load bearing wall between our kitchen and dining room, arranged for a structural engineer, completed the application to Glasgow City Council and was tenacious in seeing us through to receiving the planning permission.

    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

  • Building application
