  • design plans for side return extension

    Robert and his team were professional and knowledgeable.
    He visited our home on two occasions to meet with us and ensure the plans were suitable for our wishes and budget. He was on hand via email or phone call to answer any querries and would absolutely recommend his services and use him again.

  • A side extension to my house

    Robert Turner designed my two storey side extension comprising a new kitchen, dining room, downstairs shower room and an upstairs bedroom with ensuite. He also supported a new drop curb, application.
    I cannot express my gratitude enough, Robert and his team was brilliant, exceptionally knowledgeable and had very good ideas. He listened to what my requirements were, gave me options to think about, and perfectly crystalized my thoughts into a fantastic design.
    I was kept informed at every stage of the process from planning application, to Thames Water/drainage, Structural Engineer and Building Control. Once my application was approved. I sought his advice to recommend a building contractor. Again he made a number of suggestions and I was able to secure a building contractor from his recommendations.
    The building project has now commenced and Robert will visit at various stages of the project to ensure that all is going according to plan.
    I had fantastic professional service, always accommodating, brilliant advice and guidance. Thank you Robert and team for making this project manageable and less stressful. I would highly recommend this firm. RM3

  • advice on "lean-to" conversion/rebuild

    I was very happy with the advice given and, although I have not gone ahead with the project at the moment, would be happy to approach the company in future.
