    Sorry, but I cannot recommend this company due to very poor communication and delays. Initial contact was good and we agreed on the scope of work and timescale for initial drawings. As a client, I would expect professional advice for the way forward with the documentation. I was advised to go with Planning Permission Application. We later found out that it is at risk to be rejected so we had to withdraw the application and apply for Permitted Development with neighbour consultation. Additional cost, additional time, but it was successful. Once approved we were advised that we had to wait for 3 weeks for Stage 3 documentation. It took them 5.5 weeks to complete two pieces of documentation and multiple amendments.

    I am glad that we have finally all documentation completed by the entire process was 8 months.

    Overall a good service and had a lot of interaction. Our plans were not as complicated as most but the ideas help confirm our design.

    They came out quickly to do the initial plans. The existing plans took a week to be drawn up and took a further 3-4 weeks to finalise the design.

    My only feedback would be that I had to chase for progress updates. Illness prevented our plans been drawn up earlier, but guess these things happen.

    Thank you and would recommend.

  • Single Storey Extension

    Work not started yet this on our side not Magnus. We got a very professional including them doing all the drawings so no need to get other companies involved. The price given everything is included is excellent. Would highly recommend.

  • Knock through utility and kitchen

    The whole process of providing architectural plans and a quotation for the build was seamless and well thought through. The price quoted was comprehensive in detail and our needs were considered throughout the process. I would thoroughly recommend Magnus for both their architectural advice and construction planning.

    When undertaking any type of development project, it can be difficult to convey the thoughts and ideas in your head onto paper. This can be further complicated if your architect does not understand what you are trying to achieve. From day one Simon took the time to truly listen to what we wanted to achieve with our conversion. His knowledge and expertise were outstanding and although on occasions it can be difficult to quantify the impact of a professional’s creative endeavours we were in no doubt that Simon demonstrated excellence in every aspect of his work. His insight, discipline and technical thinking were matched only by his innovation and flair for creativity. The plans went beyond ticking all our boxes and we are truly impressed with his work.

    I ask these guy to do my drawings. They chased and chased for money up front before they did any work. Eventually one guy came out for half hour, then another for 1.5 hrs to measure, then a third guy to ask questions for hour. They were very slow and I felt did not listen to my request, asked to change drawings and they didn't get my request so I gave up and didn't get any plans. I paid out £600 no wonder they asked for money up front. I wouldn't recommend these guys.

    Magnus Architecture Ltd's reply:

    This complaint is unjustified. Essentially by the admission of the client, we had visited site three times and were engaging in the design consultation phase of works, which is an iterative process, designed to explore all possibilities, to make sure that the project meets the potential. We are a very professional team, with a formal structure and appreciation to process flow. We feel that some clients have unreasonable expectation about the time that the architectural design process takes - but work with clients to meet their expectations. We only ask for stage 1 payments up front, which represent about 1/3 to 1/2 of the overall cost, which is standard business practice, as we begin to incur significant costs at the outset, for surveys, site meetings, existing drawings and proposals. In reality, if we are unable to bring a client through the first phase or works and conclude the design consultation process, which is a labour intensive 4 part process, then Magnus loses money on the project. Less than 5% of our clients do not conclude the design process and this is usually because they have changed their mind about building at all. Some of these clients then ask for their money back, after significant costs, because they have changed their mind, which is unfortunate and sometimes leads to negative feedback such as this. It is also worth noting that we have a 93% success rate with planning applications.

  • Orangery/extension-drawings and planning application

    Took around 2 months from contact to receiving the final plans. Service was very good with good communications. Plans exactly what was needed and what we wanted Also Magnus were able to help in sourcing a building inspector and structural engineer which was also a positive. Good company to deal with.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    We had a single storey Extension built on the rear of the house to provide a larger Kitchen area which then lead through to an enlarged Dining Room, this was finished off with a lovely glazed lantern that gave extra light to the existing room. Justyn kept us informed throughout the build process and was always on hand when we had any queries that needed resolving

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    We remodelled the ground floor of our 1840s cottage. We opened up the ground floor and installed a new kitchen. We remodelled upstairs also, converting the loft into a bedroom. Magnus Technical Engineering completed all of the design and architectural work required. They were thorough and professional - delivering the expected results in the time frame stipulated.
