  • Drawings and planning for extension

    Lee is professional and friendly, he is happy to listen to exactly what you want and will advise you of what can legally be done under your requirements.
    He doesn’t rip you off with his prices and isn’t pushy which I can’t say the same about certain other architects!
    He is very efficient in the timescale of producing and providing you with your excellently comprised plans.
    He handles all of the dealings with whichever council you maybe using to apply for planning permission and keeping you informed.
    Over all I am extremely pleased I came across INVENT architecture & design I couldn’t have asked for a better firm or person than Lee to help me with my design plans or planning application for my extension.

  • 2 bedroom barn style annex to Farmhouse

    Lee from Invent Architecture and Design has been incredibly helpful and pro-active in helping us with our job. He took our requirements, gave us some valuable input (to enhance our original thoughts) and has then held our hand every step of the way, including discussions with the Planners, which can be very intimidating. Lee also has some great technology to help produce very impressive plans, including real 3D images, so you can see exactly how the project will look in situ. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lee and Invent Architecture and Design.
