Bungalow loft renovation Loft Conversions
From the first meeting, Alex and his team have been excellent to work with and have guided us brilliantly throughout the process. Alex has provided great support at all times and made a huge effort to understand exactly what we wanted. His advice on various elements (e.g. cost saving!) was very much appreciated. I would highly recommend using Alex D Architects who provide a very honest, thorough, reliable and supportive service.

Extension and Internal Modification Design / Plans Architecture
I would highly recommend Alex D Architects.
We made contact with Alex via mybuilder when he replied to our job on the site. Alex was really responsive, making contact by phone initially and arranging a site visit very quickly before we agreed to move forward.
Unexpectedly 2 different plans were drawn up which was a great discussion point. We then were able to meet face to face to finalise the submissions which Alex did on our behalf.
Overall the level of service, the response rate and turn around time throughout the whole process was spot on and I would definitely recommend Alex and his team.

We are only in the first phase of our project (planning) but alex has been great. Very helpful. He came up with various options and helped us to understand what was possible. He’s always been very responsive to emails etc.

Extension and possible side rennovation Architecture
Alex was really helpful on our extension plans, he took the time to explain everything in great detail, offering advice about the ramifications of choosing one option over the other.
Our drawings were just as we wanted and we're continuing to work with Alex on our plans to renovate the house.
I would highly recommend.

rear extension, open plan kitchen-living room. Architecture
I am writing this review about Alex as he has done an outstanding job for us.We live in St Albans and due to a death in the family my mother in law is coming to live with us.I looked up on line 20 – 30 different architects however just didn’t feel a connection with any of them and the truth was we didn’t really know what we wanted.I was recommended MyBuilder.com so pressed ahead. After reading hundreds of reviews for different architects I came across Alex D Architects. What impressed me was so many people said he was an idea man and would speak out if you were going wrong and would come up with ideas that perhaps you have not thought off.That’s what we really needed, someone to point us in the right direction and give his ideas as well.Alex asked us what we wanted from the house and explained to us he would follow our remit and also do what he believes would maximise the space and further value of the property. Then we could have a look at the plans and go with what we wanted and make any adjustments we thought we would need.He came around with his team measured the whole house garden, and within a week or so he had sent us my plans and his plans. Well what can I say!! Alex plans were so much better than ours.Our rear story extension would be 7m wide by 6m.The council have approved our plans and also Alex done plans for our loft which have also been approved.All through this process Alex has been available whenever I needed him even helping me when he was abroad. EXCELLENT

Planning & Building Regs Drawings Architecture
We decided to invite Alex to give us an initial consultation on our two-storey side and rear extension project after being impressed with the reviews his practice had received on MyBuilder and another review site. We also arranged and booked a consultation with two other firms. Alex stood head and shoulders above the other firms. He was exactly as described in the reviews my wife and I had previously read. He was highly professional and personable and, after taking on board our vision of how we want to live in our home, gave us some great advice and insights on what our realistic options were for our extension project. When we engaged Alex, he and his colleague were very thorough in measuring up the property and we were highly impressed by the designs we received - every detail of our home was captured in the drawings for the existing plan, and the design he came up with for the extension was both clever and functional. He supported us through both the planning approval process, and the drawings for building regs. We now have full approval to commence building works. Alex and his team have been a pleasure to work with throughout. Highly recommended!

double storey side extension Architecture
Alex listened to our ideas and then took them to another level that we couldn't have imagined. His knowledge and vision meant we have plans for our 2 storey side and rear extension which exceed what we could have hoped for. His clever ideas will save us money in the build and he is willing to challenge us when he thinks we are making a mistake.
The plans were passed with virtually no changes thanks to Alex's in depth understanding of planning law.
He has been a pleasure to work with, very professional and I would recommend him without hesitation.

Home improvements Architecture
Alex is excellent. We gave him our initial brief (rear/front/side/1st floor entension) which was turning our old fashioned house into a contemporary design build. He came up with ideas that exceeded our expectations.
We have now submitted the drawings for planning approval, fingers crossed we are able to go ahead with our design build.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Alex and he's team.

Alex was a fantastic hire for this project. He was very professional and very informative about the planning rules and regulations. His work is of a great standard. I would not hesitate appointing Alex for any further projects we may have. Many thanks for your assistance with our project.
georgina_274 - 12th Jan, 2017 Positive feedback
Alex did both planning permission drawings and building regulations drawings for an extension, loft conversion and internal remodelling. Due to the time taken for planning permission and building regs approval this was a long job in terms of timescale, but Alex stuck with it assiduously. Alex was responsive to my requests for changes to the plans, and very helpful with questions (especially given this was my first project of this type). I am very happy with the work.

Double and single rear extension plus front of house Architecture
Highly Recommended! After months of dealing with both Architects and Architect Technicians who would meet with us and then send quotes with no detail relating to the meet; it was refreshing to meet with Alex and his team. Alex had obviously spent time looking at what we sent over (our ideas etc.) before meeting with us and therefore the initial meet was highly constructive. Alex listened to us and gave real insights and ideas of what he thought - something others simply would not do. Importantly, to us anyway, Alex challenges you and helps explain why his design "tweaks" are necessary. Alex charges set fees, fully understands what can and can't be done and actually listens to your ideas. We would not hesitate in recommending Alex and will be using him to draw up specifications etc. Thank you Alex - and your team. Kindest regards D,L, A & E

Single storey extension to main residence Architecture
We chose Alex based on the time and advice he gave us during his initial visit to our property. We spoke to 3 different architects before settling on Alex & are are so glad we did. His recommendations & approach suited us perfectly, his designs were creative & ambitious and ended up being beyond anything we had initially considered or expected.
Great guy with a lovely manner and great value for money

Ground floor extension and loft conversion Architecture
This is my first experience of working with an architect and the process of renovating my house (which has not started yet!!).
I have enjoyed working with Alex mainly because of his calm and professional manner which makes me feel comfortable to ask as many questions as I need (which I do!!). He is very flexible and accommodating and takes the time to explain things well.
I have referred Alex to my parents who are wanting to extend their bungalow and he has been great with them too.
We are at the planning and submission stage however i anticipate co tinting to work well with him throughout the process as needed.

Side Extension Plans Required Architecture
We decided to go with Alex after reading his positive feedback on my builder and have not been disappointed. My wife & I have never taken on an extension before and are very pleased we went with him. Alex is an extremely knowledgeable architect as well as having a great understanding of the planning rules and regs. Early on in the planning stage he suggested some great ideas regarding the best way to achieve what we were after and how best to utilise the space. He was also good at raising concerns over issues he felt could be problematic regarding planning as well as offering up alternatives.
During the planning stages Alex was very good at turning around amendments quickly and accurately without us needing to chase him and the work he has done to date has been of a high standard. We are extremely pleased with the plans that were submitted by Alex and are currently awaiting to hear from the planning department. He has offered a great service and look forward to working with him again soon.

Single story extension Extensions
We hired Alex to draw up plans for a two storey extension for our home in Wooburn Green. Alex is friendly, approachable and clearly very experienced. It was the first extension we have embarked on and he put us at ease, explaining the process in a straightforward way. We were very happy with the plans that he put together and are now just waiting for them to go through the approval process. We are very pleased that we chose Alex and his team for the work.

Side and rear 2 story extention Architecture
Alex recently helped us with the planning application for our two story side and rear extension. We were really pleased with the professional and helpful advice we received. We received timely and informative responses to queries and Alex had a number of helpful suggestions with things we hadn't thought about. He was particularly helpful in providing feedback on not only what was possible but also on aspects that would be disproportionately expensive when compared to the benefits they would provide. After our planning application was approved first time, he is now preparing our building regulation drawings and we would definitely recommend him to others.

I have nothing but praise for Alex and the support he has given us during the rebuild of our ground floor. Professional, reasonably priced and to have him listen to us talk about what we want and bring it to life through sketches and finally architectural drawings was a surprisingly fun experience. Given I've had nothing but bad experiences with previous extensions that was a real surprise. I look forward to continuing to work with Alex - and that's not something I ever expected to write on a feedback form.

Small extension and remodelling and upgrading Architecture
I employed Alex to undertake plans for a new extension, new porch, extending driveway, replacing patio doors with windows, the work also includes removal of supporting walls. Alex is very personable and is easy to get along with. He worked closely with me to ensure he met the brief. He also assisted me in sourcing a structural engineer and a few local builders. His recommendations were tradesman that he trusted and I felt confident in their ability.
Alex always goes the extra mile in terms of customer satisfaction and I am very satisfied with the quality of his work.
I would certainly be very happy to recommend Alex.

Alex has been really efficient. We are still going through planning but he has listened to what we wanted and come up with realistic solutions not just what looks good on paper. I met some architects whilst whilst doing this. Alex installs a calm, confident approach to the project and understands what we want. He doesn't just want to use your money to try out his new designs, however impracticle they may be. Don't get me wrong, if you want him to do something way out there I am sure he can! In a nutshell, very easy going, very knowledgeable, very nice to work with. Thanks Alex.

I had spoken to many architects before choosing Alex. I preferred his professional, calm, knowledgeable and honest approach; no waffle, overbearing sales pitch or endless fees chart. He produced drawings to exactly what we asked and even though planning process has awkward (as the council have been somewhat challenging) he has kept his head at all times. He is about doing the right job, right; and not like many other architects to whom it is just how much money they can rake in at every turn. Alex your time and advice has been very much appreciated.

We spoke to a few architects about drawing some plans for our garage before we decided to go with Alex and we were really happy with our choice. Alex gave us lots of suggestions and advice and although this is quite a small job for an architect we were still made to feel that our job was important. Alex was very proactive and pushed us along. We were only charged what was quoted and Alex has also saved us money by explaining how to we could write the notifications to our neighbours ourselves (a different architect told us we would have to pay a solicitor to do it!) We will definitely be recommending Alex to friends and family.

I’ve had the opportunity to work with Alex on a number of different projects and he has always provided a excellent service from start to finish. In this particular project he drew up the plans for a 3 bedroom attached house that I intend to have built while keeping Alex as the Project Manager. I would recommend Alex to anyone looking for architectural or project management work, as he has a very strong knowledge about construction and he is always contactable. The quality of the work is fantastic and the speed of delivery outstanding. I’m very happy to recommend Alex.

Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder Architecture
Alex produced the design concept, pre-planning application and full planning application work for our project at The Firefly Pub site, Station Road, Bourne End, Bucks. The scheme comprises 11 x 2 bed flats & 1 x 3 bed house. We are at the stage in the project where we are now ready to submit plans pending some negotiations with the local authority. The work was excellent and really elucidated the scheme through drawings and rendered models. In addition Alex has built up an excellent relationship with the local authority and councillors, leading to a design concept that has received very warm feedback. All work was on time and to the agreed budget. A number of concept options were developed and Alex was very flexible in incorporating ideas and suggestions to build consensus for the project. I am very happy to recommend Alex based on the work he has done for us. I have been involved in the Firefly project from the site's purchase and am the Company Secretary of RP Developments Ltd (see Companies House) who own the Firefly site.
