We used this conservation-friendly firm for a major rebuild/refurbishment of a barn/cottage in Shropshire and recommend the company highly. We used Andrew Arrol and Sean Pemble and they were a great team. Sean led on a daily basis and he provided an excellent level of professional insight, support and management (of our good builders). Responsive and professional throughout - they provided a conservation-minded service for a residential development. Their design insights were both clever but also very receptive to our intentions.

We appointed FPA to design and manage a complete ground floor reorganisation and extension. He oversaw the work through design, planning and management of the build, right through to completion. We now have a stunning renovation to our Edwardian house; timber-clad and completely individual. We believe Francesco has exceptional attention to detail and experience in not only making the best use of any space but making it unique. Without hesitation we would use Francesco again, and without hesitation we would recommend him to others.

This firm carried out the installation of lead valley guttering, flashings and vertical lead sheet cladding on my house 7 years ago and have recently carried out further work. Their workmanship was outstanding, their service prompt and reliable and their charges very reasonable.

Lior at trader provided an incredible all-round service to us on our recent flat renovation in Hampstead. We selected him from 4 alternative architects we interviewed because of his aesthetic and his "can-do" attitude which came through from our first meeting. After recently successfully finishing our full flat renovation including extension into the rear garden we can honestly say we never regretted out decision. Here are some of the highlights of working with Lior: * He is thorough and detail oriented. No detail was too small to provide us with assistance or walk through options (fixtures & fittings, paint colours etc) with us to integrate into the overall design. * He is sensitive to the period details of the property. Our flat is a Victorian row property which had been badly converted to flats in the 1970's. Lior's inspiration was to reintroduce as many of the original Victorian features that had been destroyed, while completing the goal to have a modern, bright airy space. We reinstalled the Victorian staircase and pre-distressed wood flooring as well as Victorian style outdoor lamp and door bell. * He provided several high quality alternatives for contractors that he had worked with before and selected one of them. They were professional, transparent about change orders (which all came from hidden existing conditions and changes requested by us) and respectfully made changes, improvements to their work when necessary. This was a complicated full gut-renovation including removal of walls and installation of RSJ's. *He is a super project manager. This was one of the most important aspects as we were based overseas whilst the work was underway and therefore we were unable to oversee the contractors. Lior was always on the ball with an eagle eye and was not afraid to require the contractor to repeat a job more than once to ensure the finishing was just perfect. *He is just a great person. Every meeting we had he met us with a smile and fresh coffee from the local cafe. We would consider him a friend at the end of this process. He is always polite but not afraid to push back where necessary, whether that related to the council planners, the contractors or other vendors. In summary, Lior provided a vision which we immediately responded to and we are extremely happy that the vision has now been realized in full even better than we could have expected at the start of the process. We are extremely happy in our transformed home. We would not hesitate recommending Lior to anyone.

Mr Clarke was recommended to us when we had a problem with rainwater lying under our garage door. At the time, he was busy building a Conservatory in Eastbourne. Although he told us, he could not start the job straightway he made a number of visits to look at the job to decide on the best course of action. In the end, he reconstructed part of the driveway and laid new drainage for the water. He has since fitted a new fence around the property and undertaken a number of small jobs like erecting two new large galvanised poles for washing. When we look at the finished jobs, you can see an experienced builder has undertaken the work. I try not to recommend anyone unless I am confident of my recommendation. I have given him five stars for price taking into consideration the high standard of workmanship. I understand he covers a larger area than just Eastbourne.

Jeremy designed complex and fairly major alterations and extensions to our home, taking into account our needs and the existing positive aspects of the property. He made the process as easy as possible. The work is now complete and works even better than we had anticipated.

We needed to convert our attached garage into living space for an elderly relative. We placed a proposal on an architectural services website and received replies from about a dozen parties, including architects, quantity surveyors, draughtsmen and structural engineers. Of these, trader stood out as instinctively grasping the key points of the proposal. Dr Mojtabavi visited the property for a consultation. He was punctual, extremely courteous and made thorough sketches and notes. The architectural drawings produced gave us a range of options, depending on budget, and all necessary paperwork was filed with the local planning department. Persepolis undertake to see this process through to completion, amending drawings if necessary to comply with any planning requests. We were so delighted with the plans and service that we contracted Persepolis to project manage our build. We were free to source our own builder, but a quote from Persepolis' preferred builder was both competitive, and able to be completed in the required timeframe, so we utilised this contractor. I would strongly recommend making use of Persepolis' project management, which took away a huge amount of hassle about arranging sub-contractors or organising supply of materials. Also, amendments or requests were routed through a single point of contact. The project was completed on time and with only trivial over runs on budget. The new space works beautifully within our home, and the design has been remarked on by neighbours and visitors. I would fully recommend this company to anyone requiring an architect. Furthermore, if you have a little room in your budget for project management, you will be able to save yourself a lot of time and effort chasing contractors.

We could not find a garden shed we liked so asked him for help. The cost was minor. Eventually we started going ahead and asked for prices from builders. The 15 minutes talking with him about prices and options and alternatives was worth using him in the first place: common sense, useable advice. Highly recommended

I sourced David through Which? Local to design my kitchen extension (the previous reviews were what influenced me). David lived up to the reviews - he was extremely helpful in talking me through the options of design using his experience and expertise, explaining in basic terms to me where necessary. David also recommended two builders that he works closely with - the one that I used was extremely good (they made a great team together). David was professional, reliable and always responded quickly to any queries I had along the way. The whole build programme went well and I am really pleased with the end result.

We engaged trader to design an extension to the kitchen at the rear of our house together with improvements to adjacent areas. Francesco listened carefully to our functional requirements and produced a design which was original, insightful and exceeded our expectations. He advised us on the engagement of specialist consultants and administered the building contract from start to finish. He kept us fully informed as to what we should expect and we had complete confidence in his abilities and commitment. Francesco is extremely pleasant to work with.and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to others

Richard drew up the plans for a ground floor kitchen/diner extension. He also managed the whole project and liaised regularly with the builders. He listened carefully to our needs, made suggestions but never forced his opinions on us. His attention to detail was second to none, especially regarding accounts. We thought his fees were very reasonable. The builder he recommended was equally meticulous. The approach by both has resulted in an extension we are delighted with.

We chose John Lamb as our architect primarily because he is a local business to us. We used his services for the design, planning submission, tendering and supervision of a large wheelchair accessible extension. John recommended builders to tender the contract for, he provided contract documents and made regular visits to oversee the work. A very professional whilst personal service, he responded quickly to any concerns we raised as the building work progressed. We now have a fabulous extension which is everything we could have hoped for.
